What is the male equivalent of a Frau?

I'm not tallking about an eroticized straight man. I'm talking about the men you don't want. The men that make you cringe with douche chills. Is there a word for them? What are their characteristics?

A Frao?

Frau transcends gender. It's a state of mind.

by Anonymousreply 501/04/2013

Yes men have all of these horrible titles. We have always been abused. We just don't whine about it as much as cunty lesbos do.

This thread won't get a lot of responses because even the 'male Fraus' are eroticized here.

A "frau" is an over-weight women who isn't just obsessed with the utterly mundane, but knows no life other than the utterly mundane, to the point of being annoying.

Therefore, I'd wager a male-equivalent is an over-weight male who knows and can talk about nothing but sports, and is otherwise boring, mundane, and annoying.

That distraught guy who started the thread about a cat turd he found in his lovely garden. Because of this unmannerly cat and it's owners, he was prompted call animal control or some such thing and have the loathsome intruder removed & taken into custody.

The 250 to roughly 300 pound guys that are shaped like an overstuffed teddy bear but claims to be stocky when it's clear to anyone with eyes that they're fat.

Schlub. Definitely.

I would say the male equivalent of a frau is a totally boring, self-regarding, non-stop talkative, "Let me tell you how it is," conservative-voting, Glen Beck-listening, sports-obsessed, middle-aged, middle management, Sharper Image-shopping, overweight tool.

And those panicky posters who claim the term "frau" is misogynistic have their heads up their asses. It gives the legitimate claims of feminism a bad name to shriek about stupid shit the way they do.

(A douche btw is usually a "good-looking" but overly-confident young straight guy: think muscles, gelled hair, armani shirt).

Another vote for schlub

by Anonymousreply 2601/05/2013

If you ever go on a (straight) cruise or visit a chain resort, I imagine you'd have lots of frau and schlub sightings. They can also be spotted in their natural habitat: mega-churches and GOP rallies. Walk through any mall or airport in America, and you'll conclude that this country is filled with nothing but schlubs and fraus.

by Anonymousreply 2701/05/2013

Fraus and schlubs most often pair off together, but equally remarkable is the way that a frau can often end up mating with a DILF. Or a schlub, more rarely, ends up with a babe.

The mating habits must be watched carefully to be accurately evaluated however. DILFs and babes often enter a chrysalis stage soon after marriage and can actually turn into schlubs and fraus. Fascinating.

What R5 said.

Besides his fatness, the most repulsive thing about the aging suburban dudebro is the nasty beard sported by men like Rick Warren and Guy Fieri. Goddamn I hate that. It looks like they've got a landing strip-trimmed vadge right on their pudgy faces. Ewwwww.

by Anonymousreply 3001/05/2013

Time to revive this. R28 was hilarious.

by Anonymousreply 3101/02/2014

In Britain they are known as White Van Man. They enjoy football and Top Gear , dress in Cargo pants and fleeces and are self-employed plumbers or electricians. Their goals are paying off their mortgage and perhaps owning a motorcycle and they wank over porn when their Frau and Kinder are doing the grocery shopping.

by Anonymousreply 3201/02/2014

R28 could easily work that post up into a social anthropology Masters thesis. Lol.

The male equivalent of a Frau is a Babbit, the hail-fellow-well-met who wears a flag pin and prays to God that poor people don't get health care.

by Anonymousreply 3401/02/2014

Is this definition correct?

Schlub An overweight and fugly man who thinks he deserves to date beautiful thin women.

by Anonymousreply 3501/02/2014

It probably involves Dockers and Bluetooth.

by Anonymousreply 3601/02/2014

R10, replace sports with theater and dead actresses and you might be onto something.

by Anonymousreply 3701/02/2014

Shlaub? If not, I definitely go with shlub. 'Frau' really can only pertain to the fat food-and-family-and-fellowship-crafting-and-kid-obsessed women of a certain social class and age. IMO.

by Anonymousreply 3801/02/2014

Ooops. Schlub. Sorry for misspelling.

by Anonymousreply 3901/02/2014

I think that frau and schlub are exactly the same thing.

At some point, I used to call them "Joe Blows" or the more recent incarnation "Joe Six-pack."

[quote] The male equivalent of a Frau is a Babbit, the hail-fellow-well-met who wears a flag pin and prays to God that poor people don't get health care.

I thought Babbits were philistines. I mean, no doubt they are that too, but I thought the word (and eponym) was about the average male businessman who had no sensibilities.

It's a tricky business--dreaming up the appropriate epithet for someone--do we focus on their provincialism, their mail order clothes, or their propensity to beef up (gristle, rather) with age?

Some of these schlubs and fraus are nice people, they just don't know much about the world.

A straight male frau would be Dilbert.

A gay male frau would be Big Gay Al.

by Anonymousreply 4701/02/2014

His bookshelf contains The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Who Moved My Cheese?, lots of Dan Brown and James Patterson. He listens to Jimmy Buffet and the Dave Ramsey show. He owns at least one pair of jorts (most commonly paired with tube socks and New Balance sneakers) and several Hawaiian shirts. You will find him in sports bars and Home Depot on any given weekend, cracking jokes about his lengthy "Honey Do" list.

by Anonymousreply 4801/02/2014

I don't think weight has anything to do with this. I think sloppy, Republican, narrow-minded, sports-obsessed, and ignorant fits it.

by Anonymousreply 4901/02/2014

R25 nailed it.

The term 'douche chills' needs to die. It's mostly dead, isn't it?

by Anonymousreply 5001/03/2014

Somebody driven by short-man syndrome who lacks a neck. He pretends to be jovial, but secretly posts "those signs" (the ones with the smiling faces) on the fridge about the mess and about being sensitive to cologne. He doesn't sign his name and thanks to the smily face, everybody blames the single woman with the cats.
