I have a pop bottle, calendar, and my MP3 has a Hello Kitty sticker on it. Funny thing about that is this. Someone found out I liked Hello Kitty. According to him, I wouldn't get as many questions about the Hello Kitty thing if I was an Asian male. However, because I'm an African-American male, some persons might look at it is weird. I've been described as having a somewhat soft voice. I'm not into cars that much, at least not muscle cars or pickup trucks. I have watched Oprah and liked it. I do like sports(Seattle Mariners fan). However, I don't like football or basketball. I quite lighting candles "just because", particularly the scented ones. That's just me. I think differently.
Really? I would think any kind of man, regardless of race would raise a few questions. But oh well; you like what you like!

I think feminine men appeal to the really petite women.

I know one guy who I would say is feminine, because he spends like an hour and a half getting ready to go out every day. He spends most of his time picking out what he's going to wear and fixing his hair in a look that I've only seen on him, or possibly other men who have feminine facial features.

He gets plenty of attention of extremely feminine, petite women. It works for him, and I say more power to him. Because I'm not looking at those kinds of women.

My own personal theory as to why? B/c soft, "feminine" straight men are simply obviously not gonna make good soldiers, in the event of a war. Ever wondered why young male children are given plastic soldiers and toy war machines to play with, as young children? That's why -- intentional social conditioning, for future prospective war. And to add insult to injury, many females are also artificially conditioned not to like these kind of men anyway, even if a few guys can actually escape the "programming box" (a la Matrix style)

ETA: If there were no wars at all whatsoever, and no emotional programming propaganda, I would wager that "feminine" straight males would actually be heavily in demand, and very popular.
This is so interesting. I read about a US Vietnam vet who went back to Vietnam to make amends. No, it was a 60 Minutes segment, actually. He returned to the area where he'd fought, and connected with a former Viet Cong soldier. They spent days together talking, and walking around the area so he could see what it was like now. They became friends. As a symbol of their friendship, the ex-Viet Cong guy wanted to take the American soldier's hand, to walk hand-in-hand, which is what men who are good friends do in Vietnamese culture. The American couldn't deal with it. Really couldn't do it. This offended his host, it was like a rejection of the friendship, but they got through it ok, and parted on good terms, with good memories.

Just goes to show how different cultures are, doesn't it?

I feel the same way about myself. I feel like I would make a good boyfriend or husband. I just haven't had the chance to prove it. I am looking for a woman who doesn't mind a man who has some effeminate tendencies.

Ugh, that word. Another byproduct of social conditioning. What is that supposed to mean? Not quite Heterosexual and not quite Homosexual?

And why does this apply only to men anyways? Why is there no such thing as a Metrosexual woman? But I digress; you have the term tomboy, which is parallel.

I'm currently dating a very feminine male (in tendencies not necessarily outward appearance). I have a propensity to date these types.
