Perhaps you are hearing pushback from people who don't live their lives based on what they see on TV?

Look at this guy: Joel Embiid Crying after losing to Raptors in Game 7, 2019 PLayoffs. You think he's less than a man? Do you think HE thinks he is less than a man for crying because some TV shows said "Men don't cry"?
