Is a male character ridiculed for crying?

As someone who has been made fun of for crying multiple times by abusive friends, this is incredibly triggering. It's often portrayed as a joke, and it's just something I want to avoid. Many men are victims of abuse and get made fun of for it or told that they can't be abused, and would be helped by being able to know ahead of time whether or not that happens.

Billy had toxic masculinity forced on him after his parents divorced and his father verbally abuses him for crying. Jonathan details a time where he cried after his dad shot a rabbit, it’s not confirmed if he was ridiculed over it but it’s an easy inference to make and there’s talk of the dad being insensitive to Will’s emotions. El is ridiculed for crying but she's a girl and eventually kicks the ass of the main bully anyways.

There is a lot of insensitivity to the main character's sadness after his younger brother is killed by Pennywise. The boy of size (I forgot his name) cries while he is getting tortured by Henry Bowers and he's ridiculed for this.

Near the end of S1E5, in a nightmare sequence, a male character is mocked and told “don’t be such a baby” by his mother for having an emotional reaction. The scene then cuts to her yelling at him (and possibly choking or smothering him?) for crying when he was an infant.

Happens in one of the final episodes of the show, but the people doing it are literal neo nazis so it's made very clear that they're in the wrong.

Yes, both Ed and Stede are made to feel badly for showing emotions at various times. However, alternative forms of masculinity is a major theme of the show, and it's not usually framed as something the audience should laugh it.

Thor getting smacked by Rocket over his anxiety attack probably qualifies more as ableist behavior but that happens. The God of Thunder is also sad over the death of his mother and his breakup with Jane Foster and cries over the former at one point IIRC, he isn't bullied for it but it's arguably played for laughs.

The villain ridicules the main character's internal anguish, I can't confirm the "newborn porn" baby's gender but their cries certainly went unheard.

Player character ridicules himself for crying at times, and some other characters comment on it with one being an antagonistic child. There's also a moment where another character sees him crying from afar and simply comments "My god...", but this is open to interpretation as the game progresses. The latter scene is also a result of passive skill checks after failing active checks while talking to a character named Acele and easily avoided.

A lot of characters poke fun at characters' masculinity. Specifically in S2E9, Barney slaps Marshall as part of a bet and then mocks him "Are you gonna cry?" and in "The Chain of Screaming" Marshall gets made fun of for crying at work.
