The younger generation's love of she-boys

While I was digging through old magazines from back in the day, people loved the Marlon Brando type of guys who were very masculine. Now we have guys like One Direction, Liam Hemsworth and the male cast of glees who look like she-boys! Omg. Discuss.

Liam and the One Direction boys may not be as masculine as Brando back in the day, but they've got all the requisite parts to be sexy. Cocks and asses and faces, oh my!

We also like rugged he-men like Channing Tatum, Bradley Cooper and Robert Downy, Jr.

OP's use of idiotic terms like "she-boys" to describe normal natural males tells us that OP is a freak who lives in some effeminite clique where the idea of "masculine" and "feminine" are exaggerated caricatures.

Yes, freak is the right word for the OP's outlook (if it's not trolling). But I have my doubts that it's trolling because I've seen those weird hyper-exaggerated gender role descriptions a lot around here.

I wonder what kind of old washed up saggy-boobed alternative OP jacks off to.

This is not news. There's a large segment of DLers whose idea of "masculinity" is a cartoonish act that is seen as laughable in the real world.

I'm glad I saved the link to this pic. This is the DL idea of "masculine" :

Camp up all you want, but bottoms are a dime a dozen.

Male celebrities started to get effeminate in the 70s, OP, with long-haired hippy-style infiltrating the sexually revolutionized younger set. But it took quite some time for this heterosexual androgyny to actually embrace its gay fundamentals. It wouldn't be until the 90s - when pedophile chic started to dominate the media. Singers and pop idols were becoming younger and younger. Boy bands outnumbered sex kittens and were blatant gay wet dreams hypocritically packaged as little girls' bedroom heroes.

Hot young guys create a lot of internal angst for r10

Teenage girls like pop icons who seem sexually non-threatening. It's been that way going back as far as Scott Baio.

The younger generation is largely composed of softer, gentler looking males. It's what "in" now.

Asian teenage/20 something girls love femme boys. They don't understand the homosexual thing.

Now r12 is rationalizing attractive as "non-threatening."

Um Hello??

by Anonymousreply 1605/10/2013

r4 is so correct. It's only the old prissy DL set that sees normal looking young guys "not masculine." What would they ever do if they walked across a college campus? They wouldn't be able to find any of their cartoon characters they've programmed themselves to believe are "masculine."

I've preferred feminine guys (not trannies) as long as I can remember, and I'm not of "the younger generation".

by Anonymousreply 1805/10/2013

LMAO at r8. That is absolutely true.

And what's wrong with liking she-boys, I ask you!

Girly boys? Yuck! Check out my new tat, yo.

r21, wigger drag is just as unnatural as the e-ffeminate tanning bodybuilding drag.

by Anonymousreply 2205/10/2013

OH please, both types (pretty boy vs. rugged man) have always been venerated. And, if anything, with the advent of exercise technology and acceptance of bulk, men in the "rugged" category nowadays are bigger in size than ever. Compare Brando's arms to The Rock's or Channing Tatum's, for instance.

Male specimens adored by millions through the decades:

1950's From Marlon Brando/Paul Newman to Fabian/Ricky Nelson. Rare combination of both qualities: Elvis/Rock Hudson

1960's From Sean Connery/Tom Jones to Frankie Avalon/Bobby Sherman. Rare combination of both qualities: Richard Chamberlain

1970's Burt Reynolds/Steve McQueen to The Cassidys/Leif Garrett/Mark Hammill. Combination of both: Robert Redford/John Travolta

1980's From Tom Selleck/Sylvester Stallone/Harrison Ford to Scott Baio/The Corys/Rob Lowe. Combination: Blair Underwood/Tom Cruise/Val Kilmer

1990's From Mark Wahlberg/Denzel Washington/Richard Gere to River Phoenix/Keanu Reeves/Jason Priestly. Combination: Brandon Frasier.

2000's From George Clooney/The Rock to Brad Pitt/the Vampires. Combination: Rob Lowe!

R23 has thought too much about this.

by Anonymousreply 2405/10/2013

r24 is very vapid if he thinks my post is a sign of "too much thinking."

I like Gregory. He is much nicer than that Crocker creature.
