Masculinity Matters

Most men generally think that it is important to be “masculine,” or “man enough.” They think this because it is important to be masculine. Masculinity is generally understood to be an achieved status that needs to be proved. Historically, being the Alpha Male or Dominating Male is not a bad thing. Historically, these men won wars, achieved success, and displayed both strength and leadership.

Lowest T-Levels in History

Talk about a sad story men's testosterone levels are the lowest ever recorded to date. "The normal range is anywhere from 300 to 800 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL). You would not be considered to have low T unless you had a number below 300." (Web MD)

WTF Guys?

Dangerously low testosterone levels is more common then not currently. A men's health professional voiced his concern over the decline of testosterone and its public health impact on American "men". Average T-levels now are around 350 as opposed to the 435 average of the late 90's or 391 average of the 2000's. Ouch!!!!!! A separate survey asked men to rate themselves on a scale of “completely masculine” to “completely feminine.” Only 30% of 18- 29 year olds chose “completely".

I feel like I should just order a round of appletenni's for the "guys" at this point.

Women and Masculinity

Sorry to break it to you guys but the majority of women want a REAL MAN not anouther girlfriend. If we wanted to date a woman we would. If I wanted to be around a whiny, crying, and complaining guy I'd take out my six year old nephew for the day. Did you guys lose your pride? Did a woman take your masculinity? What's the problem here? I hear that I hate men from different males on this site because of my writing's. I don't hate anything actually I love a good man I respect them.

Masculinity 911

Granted I'm talking about proud, tough, and confident men "Real Men" hot sexy men. Not the one's who act like chicks and forget they are males altogether. Masculinity is amazing not toxic and so are the few men left that still have the trait.

    Here's an alternative thought. Regardless of however we may define masculinity.

    What exactly cause decline in masculinity to begin with? More importantly how can men become more masculine again, and today's societal structure even allow men to be masculine? I'm sure you've heard 'Toxic masculinity'?

    From a male perspective what about women becoming more masculine and less feminine? It goes both ways.

    All I am interested in is how to can men become more masculine again if society has no tolerance for it? Masculinity is berated none stop and called toxic masculinity. And by masculinity I don't mean hyper-masculinity. I mean even masculinity in modern sense, and being a gentleman.

    You are absolutely correct in that women want masculine men, romance novels prove that. So why wouldn't women openly say that?

  • Grond21

    I agree that that is what women really want. However, it is vilified to the nth degree in our society. Men are taught that any violent tendency they have is evil. That any strength they have is evil. That the best they can do is deny themselves because they're very masculinity is toxic, and become a servant to women who should take over the world.

    is it any wonder that men's testosterone is going down in an environment like this?

    If your definition of a "real" man or a "masculine" man is someone as toxic and destructive as Christian Grey, then that just goes to show what a low and distorted view of masculinity you have.

    I don't know why girls perceive poor traits as attractive and positive traits as unattractive. Your gender is simply fucked in the head.

    The T levels part is interesting. I think the sedentary life-style coupled with diet and poor/irregular sleeping habits causes it

    I'm bisexual and display some feminine and masculine personality traits (so I've been told) but I think it's good that there is variety. I find traditional women to be boring and I'm sure there are plenty of women who find traditional men to be boring.

    I do have very masculine attitudes concerning several things, especially mental fortitude and self-determination. Anytime I comment on depression I'm pretty much farming downvotes xD

    Very well written and i appreciate you sharing. Yes i agree with you
    in many aspects Women want real Men to date and be in relationship

    treat Women with respect and caring sure i am far from being a Saint
    but i believe all Women should be treated with kindness on this site
    but as they say there are still some good Men still left. Best Wishes :)

  • Truthatanycost

    If you take a look at boys and family statistics, you will see a high percentage of female influence in their lives, and / or they come from single parent families. Since Moms usually get custody... you see the female influence. For masculinity and balanced femininity in boys, they need both parents.

    So you can talk about low T levels, whiny men, and a lack of quests, but I'd say the biggest threat to masculinity is single parent families.

    ''Single motherhood has grown so common in America that as of 2018, 11.3 million families in the US were headed by a single parent, 81% of which were headed by a female.''

    ''Worldwide about 17% of children ages 14 and younger live with a single parent and 88% of these single parent households are led by a single mom. ''

    Then you have the female influence at schools. About 77 percent of teachers are women.

    Where do boys get their male influence from? where do they get their male role models from?

    Arguably, even when a kid has two parents, there will still be more female influence if the man works, due to the higher numbers of female teachers.

  • Grobmate

    Ohhh great take. Bravo!

    I would never think that you are a man-hater by the way and I ptomise I will try not to write a chapter 😊

    I think you'll find, (and this is just my opinion and conjecture), that the number of boys raised in single parent households who do not have quality access to masculine role models is a big contributing factor and certainly the statistics support this. This is also the case in schools where female teachers outnumber male teachers considerably.

    Men are taught and raised to be Men. They are not born Men. They are taught how to treat and respect a Lady by a Man. They are taught how to stand up for themselves by Men.

    Another contributing factor is the media ever since metro-sexuality became a thing. Then there is the socio-political climate, where they aren't allowed to be Men, or masculine.

    The minority usually has the loudest voice and the feminazis have certainly poluted Men and taken their identity away. Whether it be "toxic masculinity", "manspalining", "manspreading" or the double standard in legal protection it has all damaged Men.

    Again, excellent mytake.

    It's porn. Rape also declined. It's weird but the same testosterone that gives you the courage to rape also gives normal men the courage to ask women out.

    I recognize that alpha male attitudes may have been good at one time (villagers needed to protect themselves from wild animals), and may still be today in the army and police force to some extent, but otherwise no. Too many alpha men (though not all) are rapists and murderers. Soon we will have robots to fight for us and we will not need the attitudes at all.

    • HAHAHAH WHAT DID JUST READ.

    The rise in feminism and porn probably helped to lower testosterone levels, because if most guys can get of at home there really isn’t any reason to chase after a girl who may or may not give you sex.

    Hormonal imbalances can be severely affected by diet. We have this recommendation to stay away from cholesterol like it's the plague, but they don't tell us that cholesterol is the base molecule for all adrenal hormones.

    No cholesterol, no Test. Which also means no estrogen for you ladies (E is made from T)

  • SwordShield

    Well, all of us are different. Not all of us are confident, we are all mostly in the middle.

    Sometimes we might have stressful things in life and we need some motivation to overcome these things.

    Sometimes we might cry.

    Sometimes we get frustrated.

    Sometimes we are not comfortable with something.

    Remember, men are not just objects with no feelings, we can't constantly be your perfect idol.

  • DaddyRollingStone

    Testosterone is the physical chemical that affects basically everything you do. Low testosterone means low sex drive, higher body fat, depression, and a more submissive personality.

    The reason men's testosterone in Western nations are falling yearly probably has the most to do with what we eat. How many people do you think eat processed foods everyday and never exercise? I generally like to stay somewhat active and eat somewhat healthy (not as much as I should but its a WiP) but sometimes I go through funks of bad eating and not exercising and I feel fucking terrible, it's like living in Hell. My best advice is to cook as many meals at home as you can and eat a large amount of fruit or vegetables with every meal. Red meat is good for your testosterone but it is also linked to heart disease, lean meat like Chicken and fish is better for you.

    For exercise, go out and do anything. Find something you enjoy doing and make a plan to do it 2-3 times a week. I enjoy practicing MMA and weight lifting. Also I'm guessing OP likes UFC fighters.

  • Kiran_Yagami

    Low testosterone is probably why liberal men are so violent. Hormonal imbalances make people irritable, and appropriate levels of testosterone have a calming effect on men. It doesn't make men more aggressive until it's out of balance. Idiots who have to riot or throw milk shakes on people because they lack the intellect or self restraint to argue at a civilized level could probably use a shot of testosterone or two.

  • FatherJack

    If women TRULY wanted masculine men back , then THEY need to take a stand against the incessant male bashing , the demonization of males , and the misandrist indoctrination in schools and " media " BS !!

    Crying doesn't make men effeminate. People who hurt cry regardless if male or female and all people don't put stick into the male and female expectations. I mean how about I write a MyTake telling women who don't always wear dresses or who wears pants that they aren't feminine and have low testosterone levels and not feminine enough due to low levels.

    There is nothing masculine about men or women beating each other up. That makes you a criminal, not a man or a woman.

    • Wowgirl30q

    Perhaps it’s because most men are lethargic, consumed with lazy entertainment or caught up with adulting in a doldrum job. Our diet is garbage these days and most men do not work out or take care of their bodies. We drive everywhere now, we do not conquer other nations with our muscles and gristle we use machines and buttons instead. I appreciate a woman who does not splurge the “gray area genders” and appreciates the nature of a manly man.

  • gorman24

    You are definitely not wrong there. Sadly the way society is any form of it can destroy you. One of the last dates I was on I pulled out the chair for her and I got an ugly reaction for it. Also when you start to show any signs of masculinity it is referred to as toxic. My pride isn't gone thankfully. I just channel it into other things. I am a 4th Dan in judo and have recently been branching out into different types of martial arts. Hiking and tent camping. Other things that I can do to not lose any of what I have of myself. While women love a masculine man it is still highly probable you will run into someone who doesn't appreciate it. Its a sad truth but masculinity is slowly dying out.
