When will men ever stop being effeminate again? Do you realise it isn't attractive Watch

    (Please if you could make me anonymous as I do not want to be seen as provocative - this is a serious thread)

    I am just wondering when will the traditional masculinity be back in fashion? Yes I realise metrosexual age is gone and that we had that brief (odd) period of 'lumbersexualism' (up to late 2014), but it was not the classical masculinity, but rather a reflection of its crisis.

    Could someone enlighten me when will men like David Hasselhoff, Jeff Goldblum, Michael Douglas or Bastian Schweinsteiger be back in fashion?

    Read about the meaning of the word "macaroni" in the eighteenth century and stop worrying. Things have been worse and it will pass.

    If you find such men attractive but most people don't, you should have easy pickings.

    I don't think my boyfriend could be super macho masculine even if he tried. But that's okay. He's manly where and when it counts.

    Wtf is "lumbersexualism"?! When was "the metrosexual age"?!

    Whilst there is a certain level of effeminacy in some male fashion, and some clear masculinity crisis in "lad culture" etc, masculinity itself is not and is still there to be found if you are looking for it, but then again it would depend entirely on how you would define it yourself. Most peoples interpretation of masculinity is incorrect.

    The phrase "in fashion" is ridiculous. In Fashion exists to keep the gullible many reaching into their wallets and means nothing.
