Maybe I'm just looking at a small portion what's on television and in movies today, but it just seems to me that men are frequently portrayed as lazy, sex-crazed, stupid, and cowardly oafs.
I don't know. Again, maybe I'm just looking at one piece of the puzzle here. Still I must wonder. How does the way men are portrayed in the media effect how you view them, if it even does at all? What do you think of how they are portrayed.
And please do correct me if I am just looking at a minority of media portrayals (I don't watch that much television these days).

No, they're playing to tropes. Consider how many commercials where the husband or dad is helpless at some household task or looking after the kids, until along comes his wife to roll her eyes good naturedly and rescue him.0
