I found this on facebook:
“A little boy asked his mother, “Why are you crying?” “Because I’m a woman,” she told him.
“I don’t understand,” he said. His Mom just hugged him and said, “And you never will.”
Later the little boy asked his father, “Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?”
“All women cry for no reason,” was all his dad could say.
The little boy grew up and became a man, still wondering why women cry.
Finally he put in a call to God. When God got on the phone, he asked,
“God, why do women cry so easily?”
God said, “When I made the woman she had to be special.
I made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the world, yet gentle enough to give comfort.
I gave her an inner strength to endure childbirth and the rejection that many times comes from her children.
I gave her a hardness that allows her to keep going when everyone else gives up, and take care of her family through sickness and fatigue without complaining.
I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances, even when her child has hurt her very badly.
I gave her strength to carry her husband through his faults and fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart.
I gave her wisdom to know that a good husband never hurts his wife, but sometimes tests her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him And finally, I gave her a tear to shed. This is hers exclusively to use whenever it is needed.”
“You see my son,” said God, “the beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart the
place where love resides.””
While I do agree with some of it, I’m not religious at all so I’m just going to say the reason women cry is because we get called bitches and hoes simply for existing, we get called sluts, whores, worthless, easy, loose, skanks, etc for having sex even half as much as the average man…actually just for showing a little cleavage and maybe some midriff, our opinions and feelings are excused because there might be a slight chance we’re just pmsing, we get told what to do with our bodies if / when we get pregnant, and if we do have kids we get told how to raise our kids by complete strangers, if we even have a little jiggle we are considered fat and gross, but at the same time if we have any boney areas on our body then we get hit with “real women have curves”,…oh but as long as those curves are huge boobs! we are told to “get back in the kitchen”, we get our asses grabbed by complete strangers who think “nice tits, baby” is a compliment, we have to see photoshopped women with “perfect” bodies everywhere, every other commercial or ad is trying to sell us something so we can fix our gross disgusting stretch marked bodies and wrinkled faces, there’s actually a saying, “women age like milk while men age like fine wine”, and some people believe that, when we have breast cancer people only care about “saving the boobs”…hmm…what else? I’m sure there are a shit ton more but you get the point…I think that’s why women cry.
Women cry because this world has been built for men and we are constantly being disrespected for the “sin” of existing. When one of the most prevalent, and currently backed by the strongest and most aggressive militaries on the planet, religions is based on the idea that women are the source of sin, how ELSE are we supposed to respond?
