That's old school thinking. These days they need to think about which purse to order from Amazon.

there is no doubt that traditional male charechteristics and traits are portrayed as at best in need of fixing and at worst as outright negative

All these years I must be doing it wrong then because I never think about cleaning an oven.

Edit - And I just finished putting the flooring in my tack room out at the barn while hubby was at work. Dang it I need to go order a purse now.

It may be because I live in the rural South, but I haven't seen a single guy wearing a romper. I have seen hundreds of conservatives outraged that men's rompers exist however.

There is plenty of other eye candy for you. These guys look like they are having a rocking good time.

Yes, that is what I mean. So men can't be proud of what they are. And boys are expected to sit still like little girls, or else get drugged.

Bottom line, this post is a slur against men. Most men are not violent by nature. They may be very competitive and sure, they loves sports like football, etc., but many women love watching competitive sports, as well. My Dad served in the military for 30 years - he was career US Army and fought in WWII, Korea, and did two tours in Vietnam. Yet he was far from a violent man. He took me to church every Sunday, never used bad language around me and my Mom and admonished me that any man who tried to lay a finger on me in anger was "not a man." Lest that's too old school for you, let's fast forward to my roommate. You won't find a more "manly" man anywhere. He's a big 6"5" guy who also served in the military - artillery battalion. However, he is not violent either. I do not allow violent men into my life.

Why the right is now embracing individual violence is beyond me, but it's more than a little spooky. At the same time, you will find posts here by Cult 45 members complaining that the left is too violent. So which is it, boys and girls? You are no more consistent than your delusional leader, and you blame everything that you don't like on liberals. Sorry, but your woe-be-gone little life is not my fault.

Apparently you are upset because this country has not engaged in an all out nuclear attack on N. Korea or some other country that you don't care for at the moment. Do you have even the faintest idea of what a nuclear war with another country (even one as small as Korea) would entail? Are you womanly enough to deal with widespread radiation sickness that could engulf you, your family, and your friends along with millions if not billions of others? You don't have a clue.

So, someone yelled at you for stomping on a bug. Get over it. It's hardly the big political issue you make it out to be.

I like men. Some of my best friends are men. If hunting and fishing and playing sports make them happy, I'm all for it. In the unlikely event that one of them decides to become violent in my presence, I have a shotgun and I abide by my Daddy's words.

(sheesh) The stupidity one encounters on the Internet!
I was very careful to explain and qualify what I meant. I said it is NOT ALL, but MOST. Men are more interested in rough sports and violent movies and games than women are. NOT ALL. SOME women like those things, but most do not.

I don't especially like violent moves or games, and I don't know any other females who like them. My male friend loves violent moves, and he owns guns and is interested in weapons. And he is not unusual at all. And he IS NOT A VIOLENT PERSON. He would never do anything violent.

If people would read more carefully these conversations would be a lot simpler.

Of course you will find exceptions all over the place. Please just look at general tendencies. Women are MUCH less interested in violence than men are, or in violent sports.

Our society has been increasingly feminized mostly by liberal/progressive ideology.
I'm very competitive and very feminine. I'm all for cooperation, but not capitulation. That being said, I find the young men (under 30) on TV today about as sexy as my sister. Most look and act gay. It does seem young men are becoming more feminized on TV, but not noticeably in real life.

I am not outraged. They are frigging hilarious but whatever floats your boat. Not my thing and neither of you can take a joke it seems.

The [w]ussification of the American male has been going on for some time. I don't believe, though, that most women are panting after "pajama boys."

As an example, it was a very pleasant 73 here today, and I couldn't believe the number of young men cooped up like old ladies in their air-conditioned cars. This is a common site around here. C'mon, guys. Roll down the windows! Let the wind move your hair! *Sigh*

These kids wouldn't know how to act in a [gasp!] convertible.
