    according to the rj etiguette fairy, this topic is not allowed.

    but i'll comment anyway:

    Masculine is more than just a physical look.

    Neither. It is a label people come up with. All guys are masculine in some regards and all guys are feminine in some regards.

    Please, it's obviously body shape. The bigger more ape like buffoon is always the manliest, especially if you give him a gun and a Bible. Oh, and everyone else is a bitch.

    I think that people who get upset with the term 'masculine' is because they don't understand it. It's a quite simple definition, that for some reason it's ben turn complicated.

    Words can mean whatever they want for some people but I would consider two parts that we can divide. One thing is the mannerisms and looks and other thing are the activities people do.

    In my opinion, people confuse the term 'masculine' with a the activities people do, like to be a sporty bloke, drink beer and fart, be messy, or certain jobs, etc. But a feminine girls can drive a lorry or drink beer, playing football, etc and still look (behave) feminine.

    I think the mannerism, meaning the way you walk, talk or even dress express the masculinity, even if you are doing activities that are more related to females, like cooking, dancing, or knitting. Typical nerd/geeky guys are masculine or can be consider with typical masculine behaviour even though they might not be into sports or other activities related with 'macho men'.If you get Chuck Norris and don't change anything but make him knit a scarf, he will still have his deep voice and the way he usually behaves. But you can take a very feminine guy and he can drives a lorry drink beer and still behave the way he is.

    It's just part of your personality. People are they way the are, no judgements to anyone.

    it's all about the voice.

    a guy can have his mannerisms. it really doesn't matter if he has a deep masculine voice.

    that's what determines a masc demeanor. IMHO

    "Masculine" and "Feminine" are nonsense words that were intoduced into the English language in the late 1960's. There is good reason to dismiss these words since Pope Pasqual of that time had black-mailed (excuse me) African-American-mailed the media into incorporating these words into their broadcasts to make it easier for the Catholic Church to proceed with their demonic personification and private hangings of gay people.
    To say someone is masculine or feminine is ludicrous and communicates no meaning. They are cruel and pointless labels.
    The proper words are "butch" and "pansy."

    Generally speaking, I tend to notice mannerisms and vocal inflection more than anything. Give me a guy who is 15% -25% feminine and we will likely complement each other nicely as these tend to be the guys who are secure enough to let themselves be a little submissive. A guy who will let me wrap my arms around his waist, slide my hands under his shirt, and nibble on his ear while he's washing dishes without him feeling all weird and violated about it.

    It's obviously a state of mind. It's like tom boy girls/women, they don't have 'masculine' bodies but they sure have the attitude that goes with it.

    A mannerism. At least that's my definition of it. I've seen some muscular guys that have really feminine mannerisms. It has nothing to do with body type or a state of mind.

    It means you wake up with morning wood, stand when you pee, order things off the menu without amendments, don't use words like amendments, listen to male vocalists only, don't like modern art, fish, hunt, let the women gather, impregnate a minimum of one woman, get in bar fights, have impeccable morals, don't know what impeccable means, believe in the Bible, never read the Bible, have mud on your truck, eat red meat, have big strapping sons, shoot snot rockets, beat up fags, chase skirts, join a bowling league, have a big belt buckle, can fix anything, and never ever do your own laundry, dust or maintain a garden.

    The definition of mannerism covers that I believe.

    "man·ner·ism: A habitual gesture or way of speaking or behaving; an idiosyncrasy." -Google
