Straighten Up, You Pussy! – Men Aren’t Men Anymore

Go back in time and remember how men were portrayed. The Cary Grants, the Clark Gables, the Gene Kellys, the Humphrey Bogarts. They were cool, calm, collected, in control. Alpha males, masters of their domain, all of that. It was simple and direct. Women, whether the ones playing with the men on screen, or the ones watching the screen, wanted them. It was more than just the looks, it was the confidence that they portrayed, and confidence is EASILY the #1 thing women love.

But now, modern media has changed everything, including how a man is portrayed. This is not a knock on a woman’s portrayal because that has changed for the better the past fifty years. My problem with that change is that, instead of just making women stronger, they made men either mopey and dopey, without any stretch of charisma whatsoever, or a safe looking pretty boy that probably borrows mascara from his girlfriend(all with a few exceptions, of course). Let’s look at some examples.

Adam Lambert – Yes, Glambert! When a male wears the same makeup as the females screaming in the audience, and those same females think he’s hot(and even funnier, the feeling is not reciprocating when it comes to him), it shows that males have been made WAY too safe. Remember Han Solo? Indiana Jones? Rocky? Rambo? James Bond? All did have some emotion(especially Rambo at the end of 1), but they had had an element of danger to them that made them INTERESTING.
