Women Desire Real Men, Not Metrosexuals
enterprise Record Post Scripts ^ | 2/27/10 | OneVike

Posted on 02/27/2010 7:59:06 AM PST by FredJake

For the last decade, American men have been inundated with the idea that women prefer men who are in touch with their feminine side, men who are not afraid to spend a little extra time in front of the mirror, and maybe even wear a little make up to highlight the features of their face. We are told that men like John Kerry and Barack Obama are what women really want. Men who are not only unashamed of their femininity, but men who will even go so far as to display such faith in their feminism in public as Obama has time and time again.

Well, please allow me to set the record straight, because it seems that Al Gore, John Kerry, and Barack Obama are really not the type men that turn the ladies on. I found this survey from a deodorant company that inherently, just makes sense to me. I had not heard of this survey before now, but I have read numerous reports in Australian and European papers about it. I'd link you to the survey itself, if only I could find it, but like many polls and surveys it has disappeared within a few months. As I stated, most of my facts about this survey have been gleaned from information I could attain from the many articles written about the results. I must admit that I'm delighted with the findings, for me they make total sense. My guess is that the MSM would rather the men of America continue believing that women desire the kind of feminine men that currently occupy the White House. However, the way companies advertise their products proves that the following results of this survey must be true.

In an independent study commissioned by Lynx deodorant, 2800 women from 14 countries ranging from the ages of 18-34 were asked what they like in men. It turns out that 80% of women would rather have a man who is capable of being "sensitive without losing his masculinity". Women it turns out, are not much into the sensitive new-age guy who is touch with his feminine side. They want a man who can light their fires and

OneVike has really nailed it with this article. Women have always wanted men who can protect and take care of them. Even liberal women will eventually look to the stronger men to take care of them eventually.

Oh I dunno. I think women want to be a good partner to their man, sort of both taking care of each other. But when it comes to sex...as a woman...I stand by the article. No whimpy metro-sexual guy is going to suffice. All women want a REAL MAN-a man who knows he is a man!

Got that right! Bring on the Real Men: Dick Cheney, GWB, John Bolton, Bibi, Todd Palin (and he’s cute, too) . . . I’m sure I will think of a few more.

Not only am I not real crazy about seeing a guy’s “feminine side,” but a five o’clock shadow and a white shirt with sleeves rolled up are sexy as all get out. Oh, and those arms better have muscles/not be scrawny.

Women Desire Real Men, not Metrosexuals

And Real Men desire real women, not feminazis.

Maybe the metrosexuals and feminazis should all get together and not mate.

The “men” in the “NY Times” TV ads are so metrosexual that they’re practially cartoon-like. We can’t find the remote control fast enough to mute it or switch channels.

Women want to get back to the good old days when men treated women like ladies. So feel free to open door and pull back the chair for your lady gentleman, because that is what they truly want.

My wife tells me she enjoys it when I open doors for her and pull chairs back at restaurants and then I sit down after she has, and I still order for her. I order what she wants, but I do order for her. She loves it.
I see other women watch us and they they smile. I see their husbands just sit down and let their wives sit down last.

Peggy Noonan wrote this wonderful homage to manliness on October 12, 2001. How soon we forget:

"I should discuss how manliness and its brother, gentlemanliness, went out of style. I know, because I was there. In fact, I may have done it. I remember exactly when: It was in the mid-'70s, and I was in my mid-20s, and a big, nice, middle-aged man got up from his seat to help me haul a big piece of luggage into the overhead luggage space on a plane. I was a feminist, and knew our rules and rants. "I can do it myself," I snapped.

It was important that he know women are strong. It was even more important, it turns out, that I know I was a jackass, but I didn't. I embarrassed a nice man who was attempting to help a lady. I wasn't lady enough to let him. I bet he never offered to help a lady again. I bet he became an intellectual, or a writer, and not a good man like a fireman or a businessman who says, "Let's roll."

But perhaps it wasn't just me. I was there in America, as a child, when John Wayne was a hero, and a symbol of American manliness. He was strong, and silent. And I was there in America when they killed John Wayne by a thousand cuts. A lot of people killed him--not only feminists but peaceniks, leftists, intellectuals, others. You could even say it was Woody Allen who did it, through laughter and an endearing admission of his own nervousness and fear. He made nervousness and fearfulness the admired style. He made not being able to deck the shark, but doing the funniest commentary on not decking the shark, seem . . . cool.

But when we killed John Wayne, you know who we were left with. We were left with John Wayne's friendly-antagonist sidekick in the old John Ford movies, Barry Fitzgerald. The small, nervous, gossiping neighborhood commentator Barry Fitzgerald, who wanted to talk about everything and do nothing.

This was not progress. It was not improvement.

I missed John Wayne.

But now I think . . . he's back. I think he returned on Sept. 11. I think he ran up the stairs, threw the kid over his back like a sack of potatoes, came back down and shoveled rubble. I think he's in Afghanistan now, saying, with his slow swagger and simmering silence, "Yer in a whole lotta trouble now, Osama-boy."

I think he's back in style. And none too soon.

Welcome back, Duke.

And once again: Thank you, men of Sept. 11.

Welcome Back, Duke

Somehere along the line, women were told they were unfulfilled UNLESS they assumed the same "work achievements as men"....that old glass ceiling.

First of all, few men reach that glass ceiling Hillary spoke of...and we discovered that sometimes that ceiling is just a popularity contest...with some bucks behind it.

Hillar's run might be the greatest example to women...She made her job more important than her family...and she really has nothing now!!

It's all about family!!

I won't ever read anything by that bitch. Too bad Peggy doesn't believe what she wrote back then. If there ever was a woman that likes the moderate wishy washy men it's her. That is one woman that needs to be bitch slapped by a real women.

Be honest I did read it because you posted it here. However I will never go out of my way to read her stuff. It has been since she wrote that piece that we found out what her true colors were. Blue on the outside but red in the middle.

So please do not take offense, because it is not against you my anger gets riled, but her and only her.

If I knew how to post pictures I would post a picture of Brandan Fraser being the ultimate “sensitive guy” in the Harold Ramis movie “Bedazzled”. He gets rejected by the woman he loves who doesn't want such a sensitive guy after all. Delightful movie!

The feminist movement has blurred the differences between men and women. There is no bitch bitchier than a male bitch. Little girls are now raised to take care of themselves to the point of competing with little boys, which little boys find most disturbing. So the differences are altered accordingly. Women were meant to be nurturers, and men were meant to be providers. VIVA LA DIFFERENCE!

Femnazi women only want woosie men because they’re not woman enough to stand up and make sure their own needs are met in a strong healthy relationship.

It’s just part of the victimization propaganda BS. Everybody’s a victim! Poor little women victims of the big bad men...

I have yet to meet a strong secure male individual that didn’t take notice when I turned around and said, “Hey YOU! SIT DOWN!” and then talk it out with you, and who didn’t take notice and give understanding even when you didn’t agree.

Unless of course they were drunk, or on dope. Or in a rage over something that had nothing to do with you, but they were out of control (which state of mind women get into also frequently)...

The feminazis created the metrosexual. They deserve each other. The feminazi is trying to be a man and the metrosexual is trying to be a woman.

But gender identity is hard wired so these people are constantly frustrated and angry; they don't understand themselves.

And when I was available 43 years ago what did women want? Real Men? NO! They wanted stinking long haired dope smoking hippies!

Finally landed me a sweet thing who wanted a hard working, horse shoeing, Blacksmithing, Western artist who thought I hung the moon! Still with her!

Got to go out and check the horses.

The feminists did a good job of tearing down man's natural instinct to help/protect women and children. I had nut job professor in college that said opening a door for a woman implied the man was allowing her to enter. So he would never, under any circumstance, open a door for a woman. Colleges are still spewing this crap. No wonder young girls are confused and think they want a metrosexual.
