Do you disagree with any of these statements about masculinity?

1. There's nothing wrong with opting not to cry when you're sad. But there's something wrong with thinking that someone shouldn't cry when he's sad because he's a man or boy, unless you're talking about excessive emotional displays that would also be annoying from women or girls. 2.... show more 1.

2. There's nothing wrong with a man not wearing a skirt because he honestly prefers pants, or just doesn't care and doesn't want to make a fuss. There's something wrong, or at least a little bit sad, if he would genuinely prefer to wear skirts, but doesn't because he worries about "what people would think"

3. There's nothing wrong with a man liking football and disliking ballet. But there's also nothing wrong with a man disliking football and liking ballet, or liking or disliking both.

Also, do you agree with the general pattern I'm hinting at with these statements?
