    What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you see one? Do you find their excessive masculinity annoying?

    Basically men that take their masculinity too seriously. They want to be very hairy, very muscular, very sporty, very tough, etc. Like a Alpha Male. Men that live up to stereotypes and cliches associated with masculinity.

    Hmm, I think I know what you mean. I definitely have a love/hate relationship with masculine dudes, if that's what you mean.

    I'm not going to lie, I'm definitely very much attracted to masculinity and displays of it... partly out of respect, partly because I want to challenge it and see who comes out on top. icon_razz.gif

    On the other hand, like most I am prone to jealousy... so there's that aspect of wishing I was -that- imposing. But that's where respect comes in, I guess.

    I dunno, weird question! How do I begin justifying my primal urges?

    lol Masculinity and Hyper masculinity aren't the same thing. Being hypermasculine is exaggerating male stereotypical behavior, such as an emphasis on physical strength, aggression, and sexuality.

    It's a boring turn off, usually caused by some childish insecurity. In my experience, older men who exhibit this behavior are fried from too much drug use, usually pot, and they never grew up.

    All extremes are bad IMO. Hyper masculinity can be very annoying. Sometimes more annoying than femininity in men.

    I admire masculinity but hypermasculinity annoys me. It's almost like insecurity and fear of association with femininity. Real men won't be afraid to show their soft sides as well.

    I had straight, masculine friends who weren't afraid to wear pink, go into Bath and Body Works shop to try lotion, etc.

    as long as they aren't a-holes. When you say hyper masculine reminds me of those guys at my gym who like to make a huge scene, grunting excessively loud and dropping their weights to attract even more attention. ugh

    I've always thought hyper masculine men are actually deeply insecure about their masculinity hence their willingness to over-express it. This could be due to a number of reasons. Our society is more egalitarian and it's common for women to hold an equal status. Some (mainly straight men) feel threatened by this. So they over-exert their masculinity to the point that it seems over the top.

    I also think it's cultural. In Western cultures, we learn from how society how to act as we grow up. Being tough, alpha, competent, not showing our weaknesses etc is seen as the ideal and we are brainwashed to believe this is the way to act. It's different if you go to say France or parts of Asia.

    People who project personas are oftentimes deflecting from character flaws.

    Maculinity is normal, now 'hypermasculinity' is lame. Guys full of muscles wearing leather and smoking cigars, to me that looks extremely gay and it's a turn off. Probably overcompensating.

    I don't like it, I don't find it a turn on. Lol, I usually like cute metro-looking pretty boys? tall, skinny, toned, slim boys... lol but there are exceptions. And I don't mind if a guy is a little bit *feminine* in his voice or manners. Lol but yeah ultra-macho alpha males = not my type, go audition for UFC Bro. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I call them drag kings. Just as drag queens emulate feminine characteristics to a level of ridiculousness, drag kings to the same with masculine ones.

    I give a fuck about drag kings as much as I do drag queens. I would hope the LGBT tent is large enough to embrace LGBT people of all stripe. Live and let live. You would think the gay community would understand that sentiment better than any group yet I find we gays as judgmental and intolerant as any group (if not more).

    If you aren't harming me why should I give a flying fuck if you're hyper masculine, hypo masculine, effeminate, flaming queen, drag queen, leather guy, S & M aficionado, into infantilism or puppy play, etc. If it isn't your thing steer clear of it and leave those in peace to to their own thing.

    Different strokes for different folks. And so on and so on and scooby doo bee doo bee.
