    Truth is there are no males in the asian race. Now don't bash me as I'm not making this up, this is a biological fact.

    I'm wondering how the question was phrased because the most popular answer, having a good job, is what I think all men see as what it means to be a successful person (regardless of culture). See my profile where I elaborate on this and compare it to women where for them being a successful person means having a family.

    I think "masculinity" is more of a thing in western and latin cultures. It basically comes down to who can bang the most chicks or fight the most bad guys.

    In other cultures, it's more about roles in relationships. The man is expected to be the bread winner in the household. Provide the needs for the spouse, children, etc.

    I had an interesting conversation with an asian female friend of mine. Her values in what she looks for in a man is someone who can provide and has values towards providing for a family. This was her definition of masculinity. She has a father that worked hard and provided for the family.
    Money and looks were less important.
    The masculinity is definitely there.

    In addition I've been having some great conversations with women and straight men about what is masculinity.

    There is a lot of work going on about the masculine and feminine principles. Inspired by the books such as the "Way of the Superior Man" by David Deida, "Boyhood" and "King Warrior Magician, Lover".

    I think there is a lot of misconception about masculinity.
    What we think of as masculinity in the West is an arrested state of boyhood and not real adulthood.

    Someone who is in their masculine is highly centered, confident and self assured. However many men are anything but. They are competitive and insecure.

    That second part is what masculinity is about worldwide, well maybe except for blacks. But anyways asians just lack the first part of your definition and I already said what the true reason is.

    You're so ignorant about Asian culture. You really need to pick up a book or watch a documentary.

    I'm very confused by your post since the thread and the survey is about masculinity and not what makes a man successful.

    Just ignore him. He's trolling. He lives in a third world country and is married to a woman, so he has nothing better to do.

    highforthis saidLol david, do you have a small dick? Or get dumped by an Asian guy? You seem so dedicated to trashing them on every relevant thread. Everyone knows those examples you posted are outliers.


    Not at all, and how is this trashing? I like asians a lot!

    There are no "universal" metrics for "masculinity." There are, however, universal metrics for ignorance and stupidity.

    That's not true, according to westerners to immolate yourself is a proof of stupidity and brain wash, while some muslims thinks it's the highest honor one can get. US Americans think porting guns improve their safety while half the world think that's retarded thinking. Stupidity is not universal.

    Thank you for pointing that out. There are qualities that people might find masculine, but the same qualities can be seen as absolutly idiotic for others. For example, some people think it's masculine to act all bro and act like a total douch bag while watching football, while for myself I see the "bro" type of guys as moronic, and not sexy at all. But hey I'm pretty sure there are some guys out there that find that masculine and attractive.

    I think asians wearing blue eye contacts are sexy as hell! Specially when they are crying, like you did a while ago remember? On cam? You were crying while saying my name, the good old days
