It sure doesn't seem to belong in the same category as 'sexy', 'man I can take seriously', 'man who can handle himself', or 'man capable of protecting me.' Babies are cute. Justin Bieber is cute. Fluffy little animals are cute. Small fashion accessories are cute.Guy who can beat the sh*t out of your male enemies - not cute. Guy who's going to make sure you always have food to eat, a good house, warm clothing, and an enjoyable love life - not cute. Guy who's stable and grounded enough to serve as your anchor - not cute. So what I think a girl means when she tells me I'm 'cute' is that she gets a warm, gushy feeling when she looks at me, as she might with a baby. I'd rather get called ugly (not kidding).
Girls, why do you love to emasculate guys? Why do you call them cute?

I think some of the oddest things are cute. Giant turtle monster, sharks, Cthulu. Now when a girl calls you cute she's actually commenting on how you express yourself. We're not going to say it's cute when you punch another person in the face. But we will say that you carefully holding a small animal is cute.
