I agree there may be a conspiracy against "men". The informaiton about the testerone levels are being lowered by chemicals in our products is very enlightneing..for that you get a star from me.
However, I find it hard to take anything seriously when you make comments about the " Feminist overlords"
Who may I ask are the feminine overlords?
The "elite" are men. The CEOs are men, the presidents are men, the prime ministers are men....
I think the feminization of men...( is it so bad that hubby helps with dishes now...?) is a result of our changing lifestyles. As much as I may like my brute to pick me up over his shoulder and protect me from evil intentions the truth is he is needed to help wash the dishes, take care of the children and plan the dinner party because I'm at work.
Why does "feminine" has this negative connotation?

Correlation != Causation. Just because the two appear linked doesn't make it so.
And, fy, doctors don't push soy formula on parents. Doctors push breast feeding, not formula.

I often joke about being a "Masculinist", sort of like a feminist but for men. I feel this equal rights thing has been pushed too far to the womens side of things and it's the men that are now feeling the brunt of the sexual discrimination issues. So I see where you're coming from, but I'm not sure I totally agree with there being a conspiracy.
Both my brother and father know about cars and planes and engines and various things of the sought, so if there were anything effecting me to stop me being completely and utterly masculine then surely it would be effecting them too?
While my dad does know about those things, he is also a romantic and a soft/kind hearted man, as am I. I think I gained those traits from him but didn't pick up those other traits because I simply wasn't interested in them.
I have seen a lot of very, very feminine men out there. Particularly the up and coming guys. A lot of "emo's" who consider it cool to be as girly as possible while still being straight. Generally 15 - 18 year olds who hang out infront of hungry jacks in the city, wearing mascara and their sisters jeans and crying because their lives are so hard and full of pain. Are these the guys you're talking about?
I feel I may have completely missed your point but hey, have a reply.
but the more-feminine men are becoming more popular, i feel, due to the femininst movement. Or something.
Men are now generally terrified of women. They hold their tongues for fear of being misinterpreted as sexist; they constantly attempt to secondguess their partner in order to avoid giving offence.
They preen themselves with groaning shelves full of beauty products so they won't incur derision and scorn. They suppress their masculinity and present themselves as cuddly Mr Nice Guys, and won't project self- confidence in case it's regarded as unreconstructed machismo.
This backfiring feminist conspiracy has, of course, developed hand in hand with the march of raging political correctness in Britain. The two have combined like some potent chemical reaction to explode in the faces of a generation of women who thought that a 'moulded' man would make for a desirable one.
In recent years, men have been trained like circus seals to be inoffensive to women, and no longer know how to entice them and turn them on.
But women secretly long for a man with swagger, who is cocky and selfassured and has the cheek to stand up them and make fun of their feminine foibles.
They long for the rakish charm of a man who knows there's a whole ocean of fish out there, who isn't afraid of being himself in case he is rejected.
The truth is, a real man doesn't care what any woman thinks of him. He doesn't care what anyone thinks of him: he answers solely to his spirit.
Real men don't pretend or even try to understand women. They simply love them for being the mysterious, capricious creatures that they are. And they don't take them too seriously, either. They know the vicissitudes of the female mind, its constant insecurities and the fluctuations in mood.

Well, I suppose a woman should respond to this....a woman who loves MAN. LOL
However, a man can still smell good and still have a soft side and show real emotions. He can still cry when the situation calls for it. He can still get down on the level of kids and play with them as if a he is a kid…and that includes playing with little girls when they want to have a tea party He can still cook me dinners complete with candlelight and dress nice when the event calls for it. He can tag along with me at the mall on one of many endless shopping trips...and tell me what he likes to see me in He can still endure some chic flic with me and hold my hand while doing so. He can still be silly one moment and very romantic the next. He can still admit his faults and admit when he is sick – for we like to take care of you He can still proudly stand in Victoria’s Secret after picking something out for me – all on his own. He can know my favorite things so he can shop for me all on his own. He can still bring me flowers for absolutely no reason....but just because.
But at the same time.....he should not be afraid to stand by me and protect me from all. He should still be able to sit around with the guys and have a beer and say and do the silly stuff guys do. He should not be afraid to get dirty. He should be able to stand up for what he believes in, even if he has to spew a few choice words. He should like and embrace guy things: sports, guns, guy movies, cars, etc. He should have a strong sense of desire and need to support his family and let me stay home if I want but also let me work if I want.
And are the feminist ridiculous? YES! As a female, I can say that!
