"How should I describe (THING)" is off-topic, as an "asking what to write" question.
Context isn't the issue here; it's the type of question being asked, and the type of answers that question is likely to get. "How would (PERSON) behave in (SITUATION)" is a question the writer needs to answer, for their own particular story, possibly with their own research and consulation -- but it's not Q&A, it's a brainstorming question, and allowing it would encourage a bunch of arbitrary questions that are low-effort to write and low-interest to read, for anybody outside the OP.
However, "I am trying to describe (THING), but have run into (PROBLEM)" is a very different matter.
For example, I read "Writing a crying scene" as "I am trying to describe (A SCENE WITH SOMEBODY CRYING), but having trouble because (THE CRYING GETS REALLY REPETITIVE)". This already highlights a concrete problem.
And, while a list of synonyms for "crying" and "tears" would technically be an acceptable answer, the answers you actually see include:
- How to write emotions beyond surface physical expressions
- How to re-structure the scene so the mere act of crying doesn't dominate it
- How to observe real-life experiences for richer, more intimate detail
Each of these addresses OP's actual problem -- which isn't "I don't know what I want to write"; it's the very different problem of "I am writing, but it's coming out poorly because--".
Consider how very different the answers might be if the problem was:
- "I'm trying to write a crying scene, but it feels overwrought for my character's personality."
- "I'm trying to write a crying scene, but I don't want to create sexual tension."
- "I'm trying to write a crying scene, but I never cry and I just can't connect to it."
Each one of these implies a different problem with a different solution -- that's why there answerable.
Whereas "I want to write a crying scene -- what should I write?" could only be answered by "Well, here's a suggestion for a crying scene," "Oh, here's another suggestion," "Here's three suggestions for a scene with four variations on the third," and that's pretty much what we're trying to avoid :)
