I read a article way back idk when. and it said that most asian actors are effeminate. is that true and if so is it a good thing?
(Effeminate is when a man/boy have traits, habits, taste etc. like a women.
traditionally considered feminine, as softness or delicacy)



I like this forum that you have created. it got me to thinking and voice my opinions since graduating college. Thanks

i don't think they're effeminate, it's just compared to American aesthetics. America is a very masculine [for lack of a better word] country. displaying femininity in America is almost like showing weakness. i think Asia is just very open as opposed to America. and besides that, Asian features are slightly more delicate and young-looking than European features [and yes, most Americans are of European descent].

I don't think they are effeminate, but that could be more due to the fact that I don't buy into any kind of gender roles, much less the Western gender roles. I think gender roles are ridiculous.

Are you acting dumb or....? I never thought you were a girl. I always check for a person's gender when reading the forums. Gender is displayed under your icon in the forums. Don't act dumb. And... FYI, it's not bullshyt, it's bullshit.

Bye, bye, honey.

i think that being able to show a feminine side especially in style of clothing, fashion sense, and how azns act break down the wall of inequality between males and females. For example feminine qualities are seen as being weak compared to masculinity in America; for azns to try and make that equal by adapting both traits of gender is very ethically and morally liberating in terms of socially balance males and females traits so that one is not necessarily "better" than the other. O.o

I think that asian actors (in asian, not in america) are more open to that kinda stuff. like in hana kimi where the guuys dressed as girls. you don't see it in america. I personally think that there is nothing wrong with being effeminate. :3




To me America is a very masculine country. If you look at areas of the world, showing femininity has no harm nor are they scared to do so. it is just the way society dictates how people act. There could effiminate (not sure if i spelled it right) Americans, but due to society they are not confident in showing that side of themselves, while in other societies it is ok.



AGREEED! :3

hmm, well i think that a majority of them are effeminate. there's so many of them who are prettier than a girl or even look like a girl and most of the times in dramas, they're given roles where they act really arrogant but cute and sweet at the same time. They do this, and then give the female a much more powerful character in terms of emotions and characteristics.

I think you can only see manly and actually handsome Asian actors in action dramas. There's such a minority of action dramas as well, so all that you ever get to see is feminine looking boys that ofcourse attract a a lot of the female audience and perhaps not so much of the male audience.

Also in most dramas, the females are never really as attractive as the boys. The boys end up getting more attention than the boys.

mm, i think they should start finding some handsome and slightly manly looking guys to put into dramas and see how that works out....

But in the end it's all about the money and the publicity that the actors and their shows get.

I don't think that they're feminine per say, just that compared to the guys in America or Europe, they look like it. I live in America but watch a lot of japanese, korean and taiwanese shows, and from what I've seen, guys from these countries are more comfortable in showing their cute but hot sides. Girls actually like that in their men there. A CUTE smile and a romantic side. And you can't look cute and romantic with a lot of big muscles. Whereas here, show that side and you're peg as gay automatically and not many are comfortable with that. They must look sexy like it's almost a requirement to look like they have shagged many ladies before or something. America is very sex-conscious. I can't watch any show without it having mentioned sex at least once in the episode. Personally I love Asian guys better because I feel like they will stick with one person for a long time whereas American guys will be only after one thing only.

Asian idols are effeminate, and most Asian idols become popular actors so it gives off that impression.

Asian women love effeminate-type males, so It's not that they are like that naturally, it's because they're made to be effeminate so they can sell. So there's some truth in that, and it's a good thing for Asian women I suppose, but not for me personally. I esp dislike Lee Junki for that very reason, over-selling himself as effeminate, but he looks like a rat to me.
