Steven cries openly and that’s important.
Steven is the main character of the show, and is around the same age as the show’s target audience (7-13) on CartoonNetwork so in many ways her resents of the age group they are trying to get to.
And he is often shown, crying, usually reacting to something that’s upset him greatly, it seems 100% natural responds for a young kid like Steven, right?
So if its so understandable and natural, why is it important that Steven openly cries and doesn’t seems to be ashamed about show his emotions?
It’s because that show is meant for kids from 7 to 13 and it is unbelievable rare to show an main character, a male main character, openly crying like Steven does.
Even if a male character is going to toward something horrible, it’s more often they are shown with a single heroic tear or simply never show them crying.
In a culture that often tells boys at a very young age that crying is weak and girly. It is highly important to show Steven, a character young boys are suppose to relate to, crying and reaction to things emotionally in a heathy and age appropriate way. It’s highly important to show young boys that showing emotions does not make them weak,
It’s also important is talk about Steven’s emotions are handled by the show too. Steven is never called a crybaby or a weakling because he cries or gets upset. Everyone in Steven’s live (included the show itself) treats Steven’s feeling seriously, they are never shown as small thing that don’t matter.
Steven shows kids that it’s okay to cry when you are upset, it does not make you weak. Steven still does heroic things, and he’s still a funny happy little kid, even if it means he gets emotional sometimes.
So yeah, Steven cries a lot and it’s really important.
Here’s a little Not-MLP to break up the drama.
This sort of thing in cartoons is extremely important on both sides of the field.

Spread this like a damn wildfire.
17 Year old Christopher Roupe was gunned down by a police officer answering his front door while holding a Nintendo Wii remote.
"At around 7:30 PM, young Christopher took out his Nintendo Wii controller to put on a movie.
As he was sitting down, he suddenly heard knocking on the front door.
He asked, “Who is it?” but received no response.
At that point he got up from his chair and opened the door.
To his shock, the female cop already had her gun drawn and pointed at him, according to reports.
She immediately fired a bullet into the boy’s chest and killed him, according to Renee Vance, the boy’s aunt.
The police claim that “he had a handgun.”
It was actually the boy’s small Nintendo Wii controller, says the aunt.
The officer gave him “no warning” to drop the controller before taking his life, the aunt added.
The police claimed to be at his house regarding a “probation” matter. It turns out that it had nothing to do with Christopher.
His 13-yr-old little sister heard the gun shot and ran over to the door to find her brother bleeding and crying.
The little sister held her brother and tried to comfort him as he cried in pain, according to reports.
That’s when the female cop pointed her gun at the child and said “Shut up!” according to reports, forcing the girl away.
Moments later Christopher bled to death.
Both the female officer and the officer who was with her have received “paid administrative leave” as the investigation proceeds.”

Police are already trying cover up this incident with bullshit lies.
Don’t let this just get swept under the rug.
A Wii remote in no way resembles a handgun.
This is absolutely ridiculous and disgusting
hey tumblr, tell me what race this guy
This is more about the fact that (some) cops are assholes than the kid’s skin color. Fact still remains that the lives of young black men are seen as less valuable by the general gun-toting public than of their white counterparts.
The ethereal shapes of inks and paints falling through water make fascinating subjects. Here the ink appears to rise because the photographs are upside-down. The fluid forms mushroom-like plumes and little vortex rings. The strands that split apart into tiny lace-like fingers are an example of the Rayleigh-Taylor instability, which occurs when a denser fluid sinks into a less dense one. Similar fingering can occur on much grander scales, as well, like in the Crab Nebula. These images come from photographer Luka Klikovac's "Demersal" series. (Photo credit: L. Klikovac)
