Endangered Man


The past few decades have seen men become soft, sensitive, and-dare I say?-pretty.
It started in the 1960's with butterfly collars and disco music, when men stopped hitting each other.Since then, macho man has been replaced by metrosexual man, barbers have been replaced by hair stylists, and John Wayne has been replaced by Johnny Depp.
What is a man?
Until recently men were expected to be the sturdier and stronger sex, the ones who squared themselves against the hard realities of life and worked to succeed.
This sort of man has been replaced by a softer, more delicate creature: metrosexual man.
Discussion:
What do you think of men and manhood?
What qualities are important in a man?

Actualy there exist mans like the description. I think that all of us mans know how to treat a lady or how to be a gentleman. This "war" between womans and mans never ends.
Womans think that this type of mans are over.. but if mans have a reason to be like that they change their way to be..

The world is changing everyday… It is like a confused and a dynamic sphere that sometimes we can’t understand… In fact, people had been influenced by their strange and hard lives.
For a long time, that I know that there are a lot of conflicts and disagreements between men and women, in our society.
As times goes on, we can see many attitudes that men replaced. The world is becoming a little bit different. At this moment, men don’t seem to have that superiority and authority that they liked to show to everyone before, specially to women.
More and more, men become interested to have a good appearance and they start to forget those stupid rivalries. I know that there are a lot of relationships outside the marriage, and this is a very troublesome situation. But, it is also, a way to show to world that women aren’t the “weak sex”, as men say before…
Bit by bit, male world had been forgotten. Women already know how they deal with this. It’s a waste of time!
Fortunately, there are gentlemen who they treat his ladies very well. But, rarely this situation happens. So, this type of man is endangered!
In my opinion, we shouldn’t judge people for them physical appearance, we should be able to see their “inner beauty”. For me, the trust, the fidelity, the loyalty, the honesty and sincerity are the most important qualities in a man that becomes endangered. It’s necessary to protect them!!!

In my opinion, men think that they are superior to women. Sometimes, in adolescence, there are rivalry between girls and boys because this.
“This sort of man has been replaced by a softer, more delicate creature: metrosexual man.” I think that now it is time to men lose their aggressive and insensible mentality. Metrosexual men are discriminated by traditional men, only because they are different. Metrosexual are men too!!
I think that for men are difficult accept the differences, but they need learn to accept the others like they are.
In my opinion, it is important that the man is intelligent, comprehensive and confident, but not convinced.

In my opinion the man manhood are more immature than the woman, but the woman can’t live without them, as well as the man can’t live without them. The manhood it’s one face in that have to begin think our live and its one face morcel difficult, so many woman as for the man.
Qualities are important in a man are: the affection, the kindness, the

I think that men don’t leave to be more men that any other just through simple fact of be metrosexual. Men can like of to have your hair styled or to treat the skin: of put with good-looking. I believe that nowadays the mentality of people are very retrograde in relation to this matter, because still exist people that think than metrosexual are gays. However, I think that men must be like he is, independently of to be metrosexual or not, because isn’t by there that whether see the men manhood. For me a men should be loving, understanding, friendly, hard-working and honest, these are the qualities that I think that men need for to be perfect.

In my opinion the men isn’t in danger: the metrosexual man isn’t the problem.
I think that physique look isn’t the more important, but I accept the metrosexual man and their attitudes. Both men and women have right to fell well and happy with this body.
The metrosexual man isn’t a threat for society and this situation mustn’t be a factor of access of the work.
For me, the important qualities in man are: his way of be, his way of act, the loyalty, the respect and the values demonstrate – affection, friendship…
I think that the people must respect the attitudes of other people and that sometimes is necessary the change of people’s mentality. It represents a big step towards winning the fight for equal the opportunities between men and women and for accept the different attitudes or people.

I think that the actual man still is very male but more and more man take car your image and your sentiments, sensibility. The actual man is very sensible , sensual, nice more feminine and more anxious about your image and womans. The actual man is more friend for woman. The actual man is the best.
For me the perfect man is tall darkbrumette, brown hair and green eyes. Is a man nice, sensual, sensible, comphensive, loving and of course, that like me.
I think the portuguese man is a perfect man.

I think that the man's fact more and more to become softer, sensitive and beautiful is a very good thing. It is that of the women seeks: a man that loves them, that they make to feel them beautiful, that they help them, that they encourage them for the road of the hapiness. What really matters in a man is the love existence and affection.

I agree with this. In my opinion, man has been replayced very different that before.
Nowadays, I think that there are two tips of men:"the macho men" and "softer, delicate and nice men".
"Macho men" are men that think such as a "leader", "I can, so I do", and in my poinion this type of men still exist, but, little by little, has been replayced by men that help their wifes in housework, and take care of their childrens. Men that changed with the time, so they go to hair stylist, they do cosmetic surgery and other things, because, everything's change.
In my point of view, women are beings very sensibles, that like be treat with delecacy and affection and so men should be like them.

What do you think of men and manhood?
What qualities are important in a man?


In my opinion, man has changed in the last decades. In fact I think those transformations in his way of thinking and physical aspect are just adaptations to the changes in the society. Man and woman have to work, they face the same problems and social life has no longer great differences for both. So I think man is becoming softer and more carefully about his look because society demands it and the difference between a man and a woman isn't important any longer. However, manhood, in my opinion, is changing accordingly, since individuals are getting more and more selfish, which is a bad influence for the future.

A man must be: good looking, honest, worker (like me!!!), nice for women, wise, educated, funny, in other words, a gentleman.

I think that men suffer great changes when they arrive to manhood. Physically, if he feels better being a metrosexual, I think he should do it, because men, like women have the right to take care of themselves and their bodies so, in my opinion a person’s well-being should be on top of everything else. Psicologically it’s where men suffer the greater changes, because they to leave their adolescence that was lived without great worries or responsibilities behind to start adulthood a time with new worries and bigger responsibilities. Most times at this time, that they start to build a family and many other things that demand great maturity. Although, I think (with sorrow) that some men never become real adults.
I think that a an should be gentile, considerate, affectionate, with a certain sensitivity, educate, understanding and above all hard-working.

I think that the men have a role very important in a manhood because they coordinate everything and they are gentlemen of everything. But the metrosexual men have been seen by manhood with indifference and contempt because only themselves worry with their appearance. It's wrong the manhood react like this because all people have a right of are accept in the manhood same being differents and it's wrong too these men overdo with their appearance because there are metrosexual guys that overdo with their appearance, for example, José Castelo Branco. For me, the manhood are all the people that around us and globaly all the world. Men are the chiefs of family and who comfort us and protect us at we women. I think that the qualities that are important in a man are the sympathy, the loyalty, the fidelity with your wife, the understanding, the affection, to be a good person and for last not the worst but the most important of all what matter in a man is the inside of the person and not the outward.

There are very snob men; they think that they are the best in the school, and in the society. They think that women are stupid and ignorant, but there are a good, darling and amazing men, these men are uncommon.
I think that nowadays men aren’t so important than women, because women are becoming more independent and autonomous…
The greater part of men don’t understand that they need women for their well-being.
For me the important qualities in the men are the sincerity, the friendship, the respect and of course the beauty.

I think that, nowadays, men seem to worry more about their figure as well as the way they face life itself and these are attitudes that I personaly like.
More and more, men have put their sexist ideas a side and opened their eyes to issues that were, in the past, only women's, and started to get related to those issues too.

In my opinion, a men has to be sensitive and delicate but strong ate the same time. Has to have a great sense of humor, be smart, and have the hability of taking care of himself as well as people around him. He sure has to be handsome and sexy too...lol :) but that is not the most important thing at all. A man has to be generous, sweet, humble, creative, respectfull, nice, and, most of all, has to make us feel special then anyone else! ;)

For me the man in spite of having some defects has a lot of qualities and virtues as the courage, the love that is capable to provide, the fidelity and the loyalty to her family. The man is very important in her family, because he has that to defend in all of the occasions; he has to be a good head of the family and in many families do have of sustaining. The man's intelligence was fundamental with passing of the centuries, they were done vary important discoveries through the man and it will be that intelligence that will do with that one day we get a life still better.

In my opinion I think that a man above all should be honest and responsible, because it inspires trust and respect. Besides it should always accomplish his word.
On the man I think that should be entitled to a good education because it can only possess like this a good quality of life in the future, because it is very sad a man to live without dignity and without being respected.
On the man it is also of pointing out some cases that men try to be superior than others and to enslave other, what is wrong. None man is superior to anybody, no matter if it's from the same, or another sex, we owed because to be treated in a same way.

what is a men????? what is a women?????? for me
, I think men and women are just the same thing with one only difference that everyone of us know what is... although everyone know that there are no relevant differences between them people are always thinking that a women can't do all the work that men can. for most of the mens, a women is a fragil person that is not capable of do efforts and that only exist to be in there side giving moral help and take care of childen. everiday, women are abused and are victims of this kind of descrimination... but this is not the only kind of descrimination that exist... as the time goes on, mem and manhood are "developing" new types of descrimination, accepting only people that think and act like them... "old" people don't realise that we are all equals and the one that put life in heart, certailly wanted that all of us had a good relation without conflits... I think that me I my generation shoul try to get into this point and make a new tipe of vision about this question, and one of the points that must be fought... real man should make people see that womem capable of do everything...as time goes on, women are making history and they are fighting for iquality between men and women... this difference still exist but there will be a day when mem will try to be trated like women were in the past... but women are very kind and would stop the torture when they think it was most convinient...
in my opinion men must be strong and capable of get them goals, they must be capable of understand women, they have to be real gentlemens, be trustfull, with sincerity, and not being juged by what they seem to be because they are in extingwishing ways and we need to protect them because some day they will desappear...a true tragedy actualy :)

Men are a strange being... There are 2 kind of men: macho man and sensitive man.
Macho men look be really confident, and try to understand women. They try to have sculpture bodies, and mostly of the times they forget that they should working on improve their mind, reading, for example, but "read is to sillies, I'm a macho man, I don't read, never"... They run away from books like devil from the cross!
On the other side, there are sensitive and interesting men. Men, who can reed, talk about interesting things, and not just about football and women. Men who do a plastic surgery, or go to manicure. Men with formed opinions about everything, including fashion, and against to macho man think, they don’t have to be homosexual, they just think different from them…
So, I think that macho man just have to change a little bit (start reading is a beginning) and haven’t afraid of what the others will think about it, because we (Portugal) still being a conservative society.

In the past, men were the "feared sex" and they didn't care a lot about his bodies and appearence.They just laughed with women because thay spent much time looking at the mirror, and putting a lot of creams in their bodies.
But now, this "identity papers" have changing...We have women who continue to take care of themselves, and from the otherside we have a new group...Something like "prototypes men" that in many cases they are homosexuals and they wearing,walking,talkink, thinking and feeling like women!!!

In my opinion, the cause of men has changed during last decades was when women guaranteed their independence, by the right to have the profession they wanted.
By this, women conquered the power to choose the man they desired.
This way, men felt the need to please women. As women are more sensitive and more image concerned, men had also changed in this way and metrosexual man appeared. In my way of thinking men should take care of himself, but not exaggerating.
Nowadays society I think that women have more power than they had before, and there are some men that feel afraid of this. Everyday more men lose their absolute power and of course, the world is getting better.
In conclusion, I think that the most important qualities in a man are capability of sociability, sensibility, honesty, good humor, and off course, well constituted!!!

Twenty years ago, male fashion, skin care and vanity in general were identified with gay men. Now sexuality, it seems, is irrelevant. In fact a new word was found for the softer man: the "metrosexual". They go to hairdressers rather than barbers; avoid using soap because it's too harsh on their skin; visit the gym instead of playing sport and even have difficulty deciding what to wear. But, in my opinion, manhood is not being threatned. Straight men are changing because women demand their partners take greater effort with their appearance so they are simply trying to please women. The war between men and woman will continue but from now on, both sex's will be looking good.

I think for now men is very different because the men worrys more with physical aspect.
I find good the man worry more for the physical aspect because the womens don't like ugly and fat men and the mem feels more good will be beautiful and he will have good look.

The people’s mentality is changing…the man too…Why?
Manhood, authoritarian, troublemaker, is the image of the man, and they think that is the biggest human being in surface of the earth. Until in their own woman, they were debased by men, since others temps up to now this happen…but with new mentality, the men attitudes replaced, it’s possible to see a men to do domestic services, and we can see too men into hair stylists. The football players, actors, men that work in Television gave in and left to be macho men and replaced to treat theirs bodies. This new image that men is changing, the macho man to metrosexual man. As the text speak the macho man are endangered.
I really like of metrosexual man, because have more sensitivity, and understand better woman.
For me the men should be, friendly, straightforward, honest and should transmit trust, … the attitudes more important in life of a man are inner qualities…

I think that the man has evoluting with times, this stay the to retorn with less macho man and to think the one form more mature and serious over determineds matters. The man has worry more with your physical image.
The man owe to be capable to accept women and not to descriminate, since "we are alls evens". But, will be man a nature capable the to make? Exist doubts because the man has idea that anly he is important and that women if finds down of him. The man showed have a little inteligenc. Man has come to attenuante your machism, but is not sufficient. By turn and hapilly, exist exceptins, men that already see the world with other eyes, but in conterpart exist who have a mentality of the child, had this as lemma of the life only the "I".

Men are for people with older opinions the powerful sex. Now days that idea isn’t really. In past time men were rude, in roman civilisation there were some preoccupations with look. Actually men want have a good image because exist a social obligation that send in image of men, women send and ascendancy too.
In my opinion a man owe be responsible and strong. The men have to do be in good physical performance and care with theirs looks. Man has to do care with part intellectual. An actual man read news papers and are capable to the be informed with social, politic and sportive facts.

With past of the years the concept of the man have been changed. And in my opinion was the society who provokes this changed, because more and more the idea of beauty and elegance is implanted in our daily.
This idea obliged the man to discover himself, and discover his more sensitive, soft and delicate side, discover his more human side. These discover permitted the idea of the man should be strong, powerful, and rude had stayed back.
In my opinion, the replace the macho man by the metrosexual man have many advantages, because this new “behaviour” of man permit a more enjoyable company and companionship since the man (the metrosexual) increase more the intellectual instead of the physical. When I speak about physical I report me to brutish force, and the use of violence.
A man need essentially exercise his brain! He needs to be cult.
I think I can say yet: that change bring some equality between men and women. Because if we see: the man and woman only were different in the form they care their image, because intellectually they were and are smilares (although this idea hadn’t been accepted during many centuries), and if the man just like women, start to worry with his image (his clothes, his hair and skin, his perfume) these differences are practically minimum.
Finally I can say that all humanity won with this change!

A man should be nice to the people be sensitive with the women. A man shouldn't be violent in no circunstance. For me a man has to have a good look.

Nowadays, image is a very important aspect in our lifes.
Many times, the first contact that we have with a person is enough to have a first impression.
Some years ago, just women worry with image, but now, men worry too.
They treat their bodies and sometimes, resort to plastic surgery, because they feel that they need change.
So men needn't be a person impolite, with rough manners.
In my opinion, a man should be intelligence, nice, sensitive and educated.
I think that a man should worry with this image but shouldn't exagerate like happens with many metrosexual.

I agree with men who like looking well and do something to improve their appearence. I agree with men who didn’t care about the idea that they must be the strongest sex, who are delicated and sensitive. This kind of men isn’t less masculine just because they want to be better human beings, who have the same feelings of women. They have the same right to live happy without being confronted with the hardest realities that they should solve alone, just because it must be like that, just because they’re men. Like that, a real man isn’t that who surprass everything whithout showing weakness, the real man is that who isn’t ashamed of showing his heart.

the men, generally, spend much time to watch their own manhood, and the others too.
they proud themselves and protect some parts of their body like a big and georgeous tresor.
they (the "normals") reject and laugh many times with the guys that seems a litle bit weard, for example who cares a lot with the body.
sometimes i think that is completely stupid because menhood doesn't depend of the physic..

they are very different from the women. normally, they're stonger and taller than women.
they're don't have any skiils for domestic services, and another one.
but mostly, is they're actions with the women that make them differnt. the men are always ready for a new girl!!!
they do everything to this happen. they bacome sweet, cool, and incredible romantic. but in the end, they became weard, cold and how we say in portuguese :"infieis"!!
they don't pay much attention to the feelings like we do, and sometimes we suffer because of them..... :-( lol

The man is a being that is capable to change the world, through him the world was so advanced in de science, in telecommunicaton, etc.
Therefore think us men should be admired, because without us tere world was not anything. As a manhood thinks a man for being man doesn´t have more rights than women, the man should respect the woman, but the woman should also respect the man. In relationship the most importante caracteristics than we have are, the capacity that we have to understand the women the love that we give to a woman, have a lot of intelligence, we are understanding, we are strong before a bad event, we are friends and we liked to live adventures.

Nowadays the men worry a lot about his appearance. More and more, to be a beautiful man is important. They take care of his appearance for us to please to the feminine sex. The main reason for them to change is be felt better with his aspect. They arrive before a mirror and they be felt well with what see. I think that the man has been coming to take a right attitude. His physical well being is also important. At this time a man's qualities are the being sensitive, beautiful and delicate. Formerly, to be man was to be rude, ugly and hard but the woman doesn't want him like this. The woman sees the man as a perfect being and with good ways. Then if the man wants to please, he has that doing for that.

Well, I really don't know if men are endangered or not. I'm a feminist and I defend that the women and men are equal when the question is human rights. We are talking about people...of course not men are disappearing, but women became more and more strong and they assimilated many capacities of men! They are intelligent and careful, and these characteristics are specifics of themselves, not only their, but exclusive their!!! I know that women are more fragile, but not all, and with a little bit of intelligence and patience the work remain well done!Even so, I know that men can't desappear... There are many women that can't live without a specific man:theirs husbands or boyfriends! I really don't believe in marriage,but there are many people that believe and if men disappear it's the end of the live of this people!And, even if I don't believe in marriage,I always Knew that what I want is be happy, with or without men in the world! Of course I prefer that men don't disappear but I don't know the Future!!!

I think it is comprehensible, the changes that the men went suffering of generation the generation. The life manners, culture, evolution of the sciences and technologies, they contributed and they contribute, for the changes that are going existing in the man. Due to the facto of we live in a society, dictated developed, the own man, seats that face should develop to the development that this before. This everything, doesn't mean that the man this to fall more in the charms of the beauty than the woman. However, the man continues to be the strong sex, where in my opinion, being man, it will stay ties at the humanity's end. However, in mine to understand, the following qualities should prevail in the man, of generation the generation: spirit criticizes, willpower, ambition, loyalty, humility, love to give and to receive, sense of inter-help, strong and capable of defending the humanity.

In my opinion, I think that men from now a days is very changed in a better way. Men from the past weren’t worried with their appearance, they thought they were superior to women and they didn't respect them. But in the last years men started to care with their appearance, many of them aren’t satisfied with their body and do plastics. They care with their hair styles, with their body, with their clothes and even with their weight. Men, today respects women and many of them are ready to change them selves so that women differently to them. I can say that man has changed, and I can also say that many of them are metrosexual man.
A man should and must some qualities like in the first place his appearance/look. An attractive man should have a good image and care about it. That's the first step to be succeeded with women. Than there are other aspects that are important in a man like affection, kindness, sensitivity and understandfull. To put these words in another way, a man should be a gentleman. a man that has this qualities is a lucky guy.

Delicate, soft, friendly,smiling,shy,perfumed and vain...this are some adjectives with which classify the metrossexual man.
The man need stisfy his phisical and intellctual necessities.
The man is a human being and for he should work for feel good with himself, and for got this he must start changing what is wrong in he.
I think masculine sex like the feminin sex, should work for reade the perfection, even if implique pass several hours in front of mirror.
Maybe have been necessary this revolution in the men world, because only this way they could became more sensivite, enjoyable,charming and muture.
I can say finally that all valley in construction of hapiness and self-satisfaction.

In my opinion men have built a castle that has been slowly collapsing. In a recent past they could cry loudly they were the real 'kings of the world' but they will be fighting for their rights, like women have been doing. In fact we are overtaking them at a very fast pace. That's the reason why they are using our 'weapons' now. They have perceived the 'macho man' is a kind of animal in danger of extinction, they can't go anywhere, so they have become 'metrosexual' to succeed. They have learnt that although femeninity was often a problem for women seeking equal treatment with men - its positive aspects is terms of openess, emotional expression and human warmth were also important. Men do not have such a wonderful deal in the world since the social pressures on them to contain rather then to express their emotions are oppressive and restrictive, stunting their full emotional development, so men pay an emotional price for their power; however they benefit from power and privileges.
But they want everything: power, emotional freedom, human warmth, beauty...In fact, some of them really envy us. Men are really a 'mutant species' and I think I'll be in great trouble to find a 'balanced specimen' because he must not only have a pleasant appearance but also some kind of 'substance' inside his head; in fact, for me the perfect man should be handsome, refined, polite, trendy, intelligent, creative, with sense of humor, affectionate...and so on.
I think I'm (a little bit!) demanding, but I truly have to be this way, because it's becoming more and more difficult to find a 'real man'!!!

I think men are the accomplishment of women. As far as manhood is concerned, they consider it very important for them, specially when they are young they like showing their manhood as soon as possible. In my opinion, manhood makes man credible among women.
There are some qualities I appreciate in a man like intelligence, good upbringing, he should be charming and polite.
He should also have a healthy appearence and have good taste. It is very important that he knows how to deal and how to talk with people, specially with women.

Nowadays the man is a human being more delicate, respecter, more elegant and prettier. The current man is worried about his physic appearance, health, taste of feeling well with his self, and also with that they encircle him, mainly the women!!! The daily routine of the current man is not only the job, but also, for example, go to the gym, to the hairdresser, shopping, etc. The actual man is an intellectual being and each time more a “metrosexual man”, a term still little known that means those that care about his image. In contrast of what the man is today, the man of other times was a rude being that doesn’t care about his self, pig, unintelligent, and the only thing that was important for he was the strength, and his air of dominator with the women, they like to be the stronger sex. This type of man is known as “macho man”. Fortunately, that times has changed, for better of course, and with this, our society has changed for better too, and the so known "macho man" became the “metrosexual man”, that each time more and more has following this type of man like the English celebrity and football player David Beckham and the Portuguese football player Ronaldo. In my opinion the real man is not in extinguishing phase, but in evolution phase, therefore each time more men want to become a “metrosexual man”.

I think the concept of man has changed a lot since the early sixtie's, however as far as i'm concerned, men are still the "superior" beings. But many people say that in a near future women will take men's place in society which of course is a nonsense, men will always be the world's engine because they (we) are stronger, smarter (in many cases) and they(we) are able to do a lot of different things. Nowadays men are wanted to be more beautiful and sensitive and i agree with this because we mustn't be the "hard workers" forever, and today's tasks are very different from old ones. Q(*_*Q)

For me the important qualities in the man are:

But, nowadays the man care about his image, and borned a new type of man, the metrosexula man, a man that like very much his body. Today there are some people like that, as Quaresma. Today men can cook, do the housework, etc.
Metrosexual, I can say that is the man of the future !

The world is changing, woman are getting more and more power and arriving to the same places as men.
Men are becoming to feel more and more vanity and they do all they can to look beautiful. They do plastic surgerys and make up themselves maybe to impress women (or other men, we never know.. ;) ..). Of course I like pretty men, those that take care of themselves, although, I'm not fan of the actual metrossexual man. This concept means "loving itself", so, if they love themselves, how can they love other people?? To me, men should be nice, friendly, kind, honest, but they should also have a strong personality and attitude.... That's why I do not feel attracted to metrosexual men, the most of them behave themselves as they were women and only feel worried about their looks, and, nowadays, the most important part of one human being it's the inside, the side we can't see with our eyes, their emotions, their feelings and their attitudes..
But, as I said, I do like pretty men, so, I'm not saying that men should't take at all care of their appearance..... ;)

I think that men world is becoming better because some years ago, men treat his ladies like rases. At that time, women had to stay at home to take care of their children. On the contrary, today that situation change. Men respect his ladies and they go out together and have fun.
Nowadays, with this type of life women feel happier...
