    So many guys on here post that it is so important that the guy they meet and potentially meet should be masculine. Why does this irritate me so much? I know - its because when I meet guys like this, they end up being feminine in one way or another. When I met my ex, he seemed very masculine, but after I knew him for a while, he became more comfortable around me and I noticed that he was ok with just being himself and not caring how "masculine" or "feminine" he was. Guys, I have my moments, but I am every bit a man. I am a man in my heart, mind, and body. I can decorate my house and then go split wood, or shoot a gun, or play football, or whatever other thing you may deem as "manly". Straight guys - I could fuck your wife better than you ever could, and I could go shopping at Coach with her afterwards icon_smile.gif. Happy Holidays!

    this topic is such a gray area.

    i myself would prefer a "masculine" guy but what is that? it's such a subjective term and in the eye of the beholder. what i consider masculine can be way different than what another guy thinks is masculine. it can be just a preference like any preference that people find attractive in another person. some people take it to the extreme and are demanding of some guy who chops wood, plays football, and sneers at hand holding. some people don't care and are open to or prefer guys who are light in the loafers and don't give a shit what other people think.

    one thing this masculine preference can do is limit the people you may actually find attractive in other ways that you would throw this preference out the window for. i admit i would like my idea of a "masculine" guy but i wouldn't consider myself "masculine." usually people i tell i'm gay are surprised. my voice isn't deep, i roll my eyes sometimes, and sometimes let out an involuntary inflection in my voice, but i also love engineering, computers, WoW, running, working out, hiking, beer. i can change my car's oil, spark plugs, tires, fix my bike, fix my computer, but I love lady gaga, clubs, and drag shows.

    sometimes i filter myself out when i see a guy says he's looking for someone "masculine" and other times i try anyway. i do think i could be more open to the guys i approach.

    I'm a man's man in more ways than one. icon_razz.gif If we're going by the hetero-norm view of masculinity then I would be considered very masculine.

    I act like closet gay guy. I am the type you can tell "he is gay...but he is hiding it". I try to be masculine but I have my moments, esp when I am tipsy!


    + all these guys that say they are masculine...ummm. Yeah right?!! Bunch of BS. They can try to act masculine or don't prefer feminine behaviors, but I am sure other ppl can tell they are gay based on their behavior. icon_lol.gif

    Masculine enough that a very good friend didn't and still doesn't believe I'm gay after I told her icon_smile.gif
    She said I'm too much of a male to be gay. I guess that people still don't understand icon_confused.gif

    Why do people use the word "act" before masculine. I don't "act" masculine, real life is not a theater. Its just the way I am! Not having feminine features doesn't make me less gay.

    As far as liking masculine men goes, its just the way it is. I didn't intentionally choose to like them like I didn't intentionally choose to like older men only. Its in the brain and I can't help it icon_smile.gif

    I don't act masculine or feminine, but be who I am. I don't shriek at the top of my lungs like a lot of fem gay guys, but that is just because I am a bit low voice person. I don't brag about who I had sex with, which I have seen a lot with guys who claim to be extra masculine doing, and it irks me a bit when on a date this kind of guys is trying to impress me by telling who all he has done it with. I guess a lot if guys want masc men because they don't want to pull extra attention in public.

    I am man enough to not take shirtless cell phone pics in front of a mirror. Heh.

    Being "masculine" is by no means the same as being a "man." If you have a penis... you're a man. The biggest bitchy queen in the world is no less a man than I could ever be.

    How 'masculine' am I? Considering this is a socially construct that is constantly changing I think it's a bit redundant to answer... Nevertheless, I feel that I am a very sympathetic person, I enjoy talking to friends about issues that are going on with my life and having 'heart to hearts'... This is stereotypically a more feminine attribute. Along with many others I do and do not hold. So in this culture, I feel that in a lot of ways I associate with so called 'feminine' qualities.

    The limitation of all this, for me, lies in the fact that language will always fall short as a form of expression. Language states things as defined and static, which is not the case. People move in and out of these loosely defined qualities all the time. So called 'gender' qualities which exist in one part of the world may not exist in another.

    see the thing is the more mescaline and butch the guys pretend to be, the more fairyish they actually are. Just be yourself, if yourself is a bit of a queen so be it, or if your not qeeny then thats good for you but this whole obsession with looks etc with 'masculine' guys is extremely queenish!!!!

    Hey, you said mescaline. That's actually rather profound. So with mescaline in mind...

    I'm so butch I snap the glass necks off beer bottles with my teeth instead of using an opener when I'm thirsty. The broken edges double as a toothpick.

    Bill's so butch he uses 80 grit sandpaper from the garage instead of toilet paper.

    We're so butch we open cans with an acetylene torch.

    OK that's enough mescaline for now.

    -Doug

    You're as masculine as how masculine you act after 8 beers.

    Or 8 vodka-soda-cranberry icon_wink.gif
