I think you missed the point. I’m not shaming anyone. I’m simply observing a current trend. Yeah, people like what they like and people dress and make themselves look the way that they want, and I’m free to give my honest opinion on it. Like I said, I guess I’m just old-fashioned or something. I just get a little tired of seeing girls swoon over these guys that look more like girls, and people being marked as being more attractive in relation to how many pointless tattoos they can fit on their body. I’m not being rude in the slightest and people that are actually attracted to that kind of man would most likely agree with my description.
I could stop working out, wear different clothes, grow my hair out, recklessly spend my money on tattoos that don’t mean shit to me, etc… just so I can get my pictures reblogged on Tumblr, but I actually value the fact that I look like a man.
I just think that it’s a shame that that is what’s widely considered attractive nowadays, because times have changed and so has society’s perception of beauty. There’s no denying that.
Okay I’m reblogging this because my response won’t fit in the little reply box.
I get the point that it’s trendy/you were commenting on it, and that’s all fine. But that doesn’t make it okay to be mean and rude? You kind of were shame-y in the original post but okay haha whatever.
“but I actually value the fact that I look like a man”- um what? Men come in all different shapes/forms so what does this even mean? I don’t know why you seem so ~high and mighty~ about the fact that you aren’t effeminate (which is what I presume you were trying to say).
Why is it a shame that men with feminine characteristics are considered attractive? I legitimately don’t understand this (especially considering the fact that you’re saying you weren’t trying to shame men who looked like this in your original post, and you’re clearly shaming them now lol). Obviously there’s no denying the fact that times have changed and perceptions of beauty have as well, but it isn’t a bad thing, rugged, manly~ men still far outnumber the androgynous men in the media and are still the social norm/fit the beauty standard. The fact that effeminate men/characteristics are attractive is not a shame and it is not wrong or bad in any way.
(lol and as an afterthought, idk why it’s considered reckless spending if you have tattoos? And who says they have no meaning to the people who got them? And why do tattoos have to have meaning? It’s not your body so what’s it to you/anyone else?)
