basic bros bragging about their farts would be ridiculous pretty much anywhere else and so would be this re-enforcement of gender roles is a modern society. what americans consider manly is simply normal where i live. even for women!!! nowhere but in america you'll hear "alpha" and "beta male" talk. the main goal and basic good qualities for people are being smart and learned, and being generous is also appreciated and not labelled as wussy. people mainly are disparaged for being stupid, ignorant and egoist. we don't even notice "manliness" and you won't hear that word as often as in the usa. BY FAR. because manliness is the NORM. i've never known ANY emotionally unmanly guys outside america. can this be linked with the fact that the average american's testosterone level has been decreasing in the last century? has this made amercan men more insecure about their "manliness"?

It's funny, because those types of dudes tend to be the biggest bitches. One of the editors who does shit like that blocked me because I called his ignorant view of mental illness ignorant. One of the testosterone trio blocked me because I wouldn't add him on snapchat.2

I don't know if it's true that testosterone levels are decreasing, but I agree that there's too much focus on "masculinity" here in America. I'm from Spain and over there you only talked about lack of masculinity when you were talking about a crossdresser, trans, or anything gay, besides that, it was barely ever mentioned.
I don't know why that is, but in Spain we didn't have to worry about appearing masculine cause we know we're masculine.3
