You know the more I think about it the weirder it seems that you've looked at a film aimed at straight guys and concluded that most women want a guy like that, and more to the point I haven't come across any women talking about whoever that character is. Like if someone went and watched Pride and Prejudice and concluded that most guy's dream girl was Elizabeth Bennet haha. I mean she got a guy didn't she?
I was going to include examples that are generalisable in this post but then I realised it really doesn't matter. Why? Because you just picked a fantasy you feel is something that appeals to you and decided that all women want to be part of it no matter what they say. I feel like I should start posting contrary info everytime
I see a guy doing this (cause for some reason it's 99% of the time guys with the same feelings about women doing it, and then dismissing contrary opinions as you did in the OP.) I'll just create some like copypasta response. (About half of this will be IAMX quotes, because cutie <3)
Yes, the more unconventional, the better. I’ve always been inclined to left-wing point of view, ways of dressing and ways of expressing oneself. There are many levels of beauty. Of course, there is physical attraction but then there is much more in the mentality that can stimulate me. I‘m more inclined to female beauty and I think that is because the female attitude is just more in line with my own. The feminine kind of view of the world is much more like my own. I grew up with very strong mother and sister, who had a big influence on me. My sister dressed me up as a girl when I was little, and it has had a big impact on me. So, femininity is a big part of my life. I can’t really define what exactly beauty is but this is definitely multilayered and unconventional. Confidence and freedom with one’s own expression, whether is it is sexual or artistic, are very important; they are all connected to the same thing.
Above all, the feminine in nature is the saving grace. I grew up with a strong female energy around me. I am thankful for that and in some ways I feel more enlightened and connected with sensitivity, love, affection; the gentle, harmonious qualities in life. In other ways as a man I react against them. I put up walls, I am cold and I think of achieving too much. The song is about the struggle between these, with the feminine element taking the dominant position in the end.
CAN SOMEBODY PLEASE BRING ME SOME TIGHTS TONIGHT? FEELING THE NEED . SECOND HAND ACCEPTABLE . X
so they were on tour a while back with Kat Von D, and I really wanted to find a quote where someone pointed out that it seems like he'll be exactly like her by the end of the tour (people kept noting they seemed like twins,) and he responded with something like 'I hope so' I can't find it though
and now I've been side tracked by Kat Von D photos... Goths though.. Am I right? I mean I can't be wrong. Obviously. That's the point of this post.
This is cute:
My Girlfriend bought me flowers and medicine because I was sick. It's so pretty!
about half way down the page you see someone decided to lie about her boyfriend tsk:
I got my boyfriend a rose and he said it was emasculating lol. I’ve lived with this guy for a year and that reaction was unexpected to say the least.
But we all know she's lying, no guy would ever feel emasculated being given flowers just ask Jake Peralta, a character, on a television show (TV is real people. This thread has confirmed):
This is a dream some woman had when she was a young girl, but it's reality now. Except the end part, cause I mean obviously all guys are into her dream scenario. (also can't quote because word count.)
Girl telling guys they're handsome using spiderman meme, gets this response (clearly applicable to all men):
Would prefer pretty but thanks
I want a handsome girl to tell me I'm pretty.
You know what I'm picking up on during my current exploration is so much flower repression
I buy flowers and plants I want for our apartment under the guise of "for my girlfriend."
She's always so happy to receive them. Little does she know I love our apartment looking like a jungle.
Why is this the most common thing to be brought up when considering role reversal? Probably one of the oldest 'role things.'
also the video in my signature lol.
Also this book about a female sadist
You know when I was a teenager I went through a period of having a fantasy where a genderbent/androgynous poison ivy type character who lived in the forest captured a Human guy who was encroaching on his land and forced him to forsake the Human world and live in the forest with him. Also involved lots of the pet plants having sex with him. I think it was mostly plant sex actually. (typically he'd have some significant involvement in the Human world that was resulting in destruction to the forest, and the plant person wanted to corrupt him. I was a bit lazy about coming up with the perfect role but yeah. It was all very Tolkein/environmentalism.)
The original Poison Ivy is probably a manifestation of flower repression too. Society is teaching you to dislike flowers, but deep down you just want to give into the flowers. This is a deeply scientific theory brought to you by pattern matching and cognitive bias.
I accidently got turned on, by seeing a woman with big muscles yesterday.
I blame you Guys for converting me. Thanks
It’s happens to all of us! ��
More things that apply to all guys.
OK just quoting stuff because you get the idea at this point..
I kind of went poking in that question in another thread myself, but I'd rather ask the credible source since it's right at my fingertips. I've been kind of down over the fact lately that most straight or bi men still want their female or even afab nonbinary partners to fit SOME standard of femininity. The AskMen thread on liking tomboys was... ugh. I'm feeling pretty bad that I'm not into girls or other nb trans folks, tbf. But I don't think I'll give up the search for my counterpart from the other side (I like male femininity a lot. A girly guy is basically the only sort of human I find attractive and I haven't really been able to change that through any measure of mental gymnastics, it just is. I don't like girls, and masculinity in males puts me off).
I've known I'm something like this ever since I came to contact with the opposite gender. My earliest daydreams were of rescuing/protecting/hurt&comfort-style stories. Hell, it's been a long, angsty ride to adulthood. Misfit, bi, butch, tomboy, oddly romantic trans-fetishist, lesbian, gay trans man — you name it, I've considered it. I guess this is fuelled by general feelings of hopelessness. Or perhaps the ways all my female friends act and their attitudes, the lack of understanding that creeps in. Sometimes it feels like I'm the only person alive that's even into this. Sometimes even lowering the bar and wanting somewhat equal relationships with guys is considered at best peculiar/rr, at worst you have some sort of penis envy. "Are you sure you're not a lesbian?" - no, I'm not, and still people of both genders have honestly told me they don't want what I have to offer, because I'm just a weird kind of backwards, looking for something that doesn't exist. "No, you don't understand. Boys want this, girls want this. You have them all backwards! How can you be so dumb? No guy wants that. And she wants to feel like a lady. Do you really have so little sense of the situation and what is appropriate?"
In an odd way, gender roles matter to me. It's just how I'm wired, I guess, and it takes it's toll every time I see how the army changes another guy to one of the machismo-worshipping, yet fearful zombies, get told to bottle up feelings and not wear this or that, comform, not be a special snowflake. Every time I witness the enforcing of that **** on people who are unwilling or maybe, just maybe a little bit like me.
And here's the really annoying part right. You, and many like you, have partners. You have a girlfriend. So this isn't even coming from a place of 'I'm so frustrated because I can't get a girlfriend, let me psychoanalayse women to the nth degree through my various biases and think about what they may like.' You're just a guy obsessed with a certain mode of behaviour, as with a lot of guys atm, who gets freaked out the second people in the media aren't reflecting what you personally want to see. And what you want to see has been so normal, for so long, you feel outraged that mainstream media isn't catering to you personally in the current zeitgeist.
Most people who wanted to see something the media wasn't showing were just writing fanfiction/making fanart lol in the 2000s. You may wish to consider doing that instead.
