What is your view of the male sex
    #4713139 - 09/26/05 10:06 AM (12 years, 25 days ago)

I rip on chicks a lot. But, I started thinking about some of the consistent flaws of males:

1. We can be emotionally muted.
2. We can be too macho and bull-headed at times.
3. We are often unable to pick up on emotional cues.
4. We think that if a girl says "hi" or talks to us that she wants us, even though she probably was just being polite.
5. We think about sex WAY too much.

I don't know.

My mom divorced my dad and made him get out of the house when I was in 9th grade, and he was never much of a role model for me at all. He had very typical ideas of masculinity (though he hated sports) that I rejected, and I was raised mainly by my mother and two sisters (4 and 5 years older than me). So I just think lots of men are too male for their own good. I don't consider myself a "guy".

I agree but It seems that's the same view women have about men they don't know.

When I say Hi to a girl half the time she hurries on her way like I was gonna steal her purse. Or she acts like I only said Hi so she would take her pants off. Chicks should chill out, "Not everyone is out to get you, I swear most chicks are on drugs."
I don't have a threatining appearance btw.

My view of the male sex is... "Please don't let me be misunderstood!"

One huge problem I see is that we men are so afraid of each other and emotionally blocked off from showing real affection to each other. This whole homophobia thing has gotten males hogtied to women as their only source of nuturing and affection. It makes us too needy around women, and way to distant with each other.

Dude, I have had that happen before. Even though I am a horny heterosexual guy, my female interactions are not always for the pursuit of sex. Sometimes when I talk to a girl I really am just being polite and friendly and I have no romantic or sexual ideas in my head. But, sometimes girls look at you like, "I know you're trying to get in my pants". If I was trying to get in her pants, then kudos to her for picking up on that. But, when I'm not trying to get in her pants and she pulls that attitude then I think, "Bitch...what's your problem. I don't want your ass."

My girlfriend is really fucking nice, and gives every guy the benefit of the doubt.  Most of them don't deserve the benefit of the doubt. :rolleyes: But she's got faith she does.

Maybe...but God damn...I get the willies when a guy starts talking about his feelings to me. It is weird and uncomfortable. It makes the guy look not in control and weak. I guess I have been brainwashed by society to act "guy-ish".

Showing feelings can be very manly... it's all in good taste. A guy does have to be alot more clever about it though.

I had a friend break down over the weekend and I knew how he fealt. I wanted to tell him he was beautiful (in the most heterosexual way possible) so I wrote a poem that allowed him to tell himself how beautiful he is. It's in my sig if anyone wants to read it.

Men shouldn't go around talking about their feelings to every guy they see. Maybe 1 or 2 real close friends, that's it. And certainly not all the time, or regularly for that matter. Big issues like deaths and whatnot are ok to spout off about, but no relationship/love chitchat(occasional advice is ok). That's just weird.

Being emotionally muted allows us to be more rational. One side complements the other.

The guys that fall in love when a girl says hi just need to get laid more.

Thinking about sex is our job. We are here to reproduce. Which is where the macho thing comes in. Best guy gets the most fucking. It's nature.
But now with technology allowing for more males to become pussies and still survive it is changing what is considered to be the best guy. Tie this is with "love" and nobody really knows what's what anymore.

Dammit! It happened again when I just read your post! I immediately got freaked out when you said "he was beautiful" and "I wrote a poem". When a guy steps outside of the normal male boundaries that are usually obeyed, it irks me for some reason. I admit that this is stupid but I can't help it.

Screw that, there should be no guidelines. If you are in a moment with a complete stranger and you feel that you would be comfortable talking to them about something deep regarding love in your life, you should be able to. I've had more open conversations with complete strangers than some friends.

In fact, I would say it's great therapy opening up to a stranger as long as you're not forcing it on them.

"Best guy gets the most fucking?"  What a ridiculous load of bullshit. 

You just put an entire history's worth of serial rapists up there as "best guys."

Yeah man...I just cannot mute my instinctual desires and proclivities. I feel very "male-ish" things in me on a regular basis. I like being calm, unemotional, and in control. I like participating in a group of males, being accepted, and having status amongst them. I like to exalt the more visceral aspects of maleness. I don't want to be weak.

Does that make me brainwashed or a chauvinist? I don't know.

The metrosexuals and feminists will tell you it does. Bottom line is, it doesn't matter. Different folks, different strokes.

One quality of Manliness I try to emulate the most is... "Not giving a fuck what other people think about me." So If I feel the need to open up and say something that might reflect some feeling, I do it.
I'm not gay and last I checked words aren't gay either. Sticking something in your ass is gay. Unless you're getting a prostate exam or an enima or something medical like that. Or guy on guy felatio... that's pretty gay too.
Words aren't gay.
Homophobes I wonder sometimes if they're gay but really I just think it's unmanly how they're so worried about what there best bud will think if he said the wrong thing. A dude should be saying, "Fuck you best bud, I'll say any God Damned thing I want!"

Well, having said that, I was always taught not to hide my feelings, be they anger, love, hate, etc. I suppose it's also the cultural milleau we all grew up. I mean, some guy born in, say, the 1930's would have a hard time understanding this...

My impression of guys is that as Robot said, girls can be real nice and give the benefit of the doubt. From my past in behaving that way, Ive gotten in really uncomfortable situations which have ended up jepordizing the relationships I was in. I tend to feel that most guys feel they have the upper hand when approaching a girl and can be very subtly pushy of trying to get with a girl, and often times girls like me can be too naive to pick up on what they are really getting to. I also hate being looked at like a piece of meat which tends to happen anywhere you walk in this city. I swear to god when I walk past groups of construction workers I just want to turn and vomit on them b/c I feel and see their eyes burning me.

But I also feel that the way people behave is reletive to how and where they grew up. needless to say Ive been in more compromising situations in the city then I have been at home.
