  • What really makes a man "manly" both physical and personality wise?

    Physically: maybe wide shoulders, strong features, some tones of muscles.

    Personality: calm, can control himself when he's mad or angry etc (have some self-control), brave, strong personality, noble with good manners.

    (I think a man's masculinity can be measured from his actions and personality.

    The appearance is not always a sign of the masculinity)

    What are things a man has to do to prove his masculinity?

    - You're masculine when you are gentle with weak people.

    A man should know that women are weak creatures,

    and he's there to protect them and be kind with them, offering help to them

    when it comes to hard physical work.

    Otherwise, if you are a jerk who doesn't have any characteristics of masculinity

    and you have other plans please tell her from the beginning.

    That doesn't mean just the women but include all the weak people and creatures.

    - You're masculine when you have a sense of responsibility.

    - You're masculine when you respect the others and their opinions and don't think you're always the right one, you are a human and you make mistakes too.

    - You're masculine when you are equitable and say the truth and don't fear anyone.

    - You are masculine when you wipe out the tears of a miserable person.

    - You are masculine when you sleep at the end of the day and your conscience feels very comfortable and you feel you have never oppressed anyone.

    etc..

    what are things that can rob a man of his manliness?

    Just be a jerk, and do the opposite of what I have mentioned above.

    Are today's generation of men less manly than previous ones?

    Yes, actually I brought these characteristics which

    I think are the signs of masculinity from some

    of the characteristics of a man lived in a previous generation.

    I think less males are manly nowadays.

    That doesn't mean they don't exist anymore

    but they are getting lesser and lesser.

  • I'm not sure about the physical traits that make a guy 'manly' but personality wise, I think an overly sensitive guy can rob his masculinity. Also, if he cares too much about what people think of him and is too shy to voice his opinions of certain things because of it.

    I think one way a guy can prove his manliness is to not give the impression that he is threatened or intimidated by other guys.

    I think todays generation are less 'manly', only because I think it's encouraged that guys express their emotional/feminine side more which I don't think is particularly good or bad.

  • Muscles make a man manly. The previous generations were bigger jerks, not manlier. Don't mistake the two.

  • physically: tall, not scrawny looking- fairly muscular. short hair

    personality wise: more dominant/assertive, protective, composed (not emotional), brave, kind

    to prove masculinity: many ways to do this, and different for everybody. I would say that he could show he is responsible, mature. doesn't feel the need to sleep around or be the guy that gets all the girls. gentle with women, doesn't treat women as inferior. respect for women. takes care of others and is compassionate.

    things that rob a man of manliness: being immature and hooking up with a lot of women, arrogant/cocky, lack of respect for women
