In the US it's also an insult to call men 'girly'. And there are a lot of us who don't act in the way men are expected to act most of the time; the only sure thing I know about my car is how to spell it. I find it strange as a whole to determine whether someone is more of "gender x" than others. It's completely subjective. As Dracula proves to us.



Where do I rate on this scale Drac? Am I more of an Abe Lincoln, or a Dick Cheney?

By masculine I assume you mean Tomboy-ish? I know a few girls like that. They don't care to be girly but they won't get pissed off or anything like that unless you keep pressing the issue on them. I see nothing wrong it personally. It's cute in some ways. I don't like helpless girls so it's a plus in my eyes to some degree.

I'm not sure how it is in other countries but I can see why the US women would be considered that way to foreigners. Masculine women definitely aren't the majority though. I'd guess that the whole "strong independent" attitude has some part in it. Also the American culture tends to support freedom of expression more than most countries. Our society is ever changing so it's hard to say really.


The girls I'm talking about are men in everything but biology. American women have been exposed to "power = man" and it shows, it's not necessarily a bad thing.

It was probably a good thing awhile ago, but I noticed that getting women from Ukraine/Russia/Japan/Korea seems like a popular option, maybe it's because men are deciding to cut the crap and go for women and not just, well, whatever the hell you find here in the United States. Lol

But yeah, that's what I was getting at. I'm just starting to realize there are more manly women than womanly women.

No offense.

But there's a clear difference between men and women.

I tend to file a person's manner of dress, preference for or against rough/tumble activities, hairstyles, and so on under the "Things which are none of my damned business" category.

None taken!

But the issue you're referring to is more about how we act within our respective genders, is it not? In this case how women are acting: Are they acting more like men or women? That's what I perceived the core of the question to entail. While I am approaching it from a side I am more familiar with, both sides share the same issue. I just happen to find the issue silly on either side. In an age in which we are beginning to address others' gender in the way they see themselves instead of their 'assigned genders', I think saying, "she acts like a man" or, "he's a little girly, isn't he" is a bit outdated and irrelevant.

Honestly I'm a big fan of the non-girly girl. That's all I'm gonna say.

i like tomboy girls (in fact i am kinda am one) they're alright. But i draw the line when i see women with muscles , I accept women with muscles like this > but something like this > and is a big NO to me. I dont think women/girls in the U.S are getting more muscular, it seems that in other places (India for example) women are muscular there i guess. I look kinda musular myself with my sightly broad shoulders but not that muscular anyways big muscular women are huge turn offs. I question people who have that as their fetish and i also question women who want to be muscular its gross!

If you frequent rooshvforums or other boards where the central idea is traveling abroad. You'll notice that when the topic of women comes up, it's normally general consensus that girls/women in U.S specifically are more masculine than other countries.!


I decided to visit rooshvforums and I honestly have no Idea what I just saw. Its about two things apparently, picking up girls and travel (how are these two things related at all). Though I did find David "I have nothing against white nationalism" Aurini has a profile there. Huh maybe thats were he gets the funding for his nutty films.

Thats because in other countries the men are typically more feminine, especially in asian countries, and the females have to become even more feminine to compensate. America has real men, so the women have more room to maneuver. In places like Japan or Korea, its a contest to see who can squeeze into the smallest pair of jeans.


SO true.

A lot of men in Asian countries are...well, in touch with their feminine side. Unfortunately, this is not a good feature for them outside of Asian countries/continents on the whole - Europe, Americas...etc. look down on "feminine men". Unless they're gay. Lol. I myself like a traditional manly man. No girly boys for me, thanks!

Masculinity...traditional masculinity has long been prized in Western society, and like you said, this has allowed women more "leg room". The women here are not "masculine" on the whole - they're just not more "submissive" (and I use that word lightly) as in Asian countries. Or rather, ladies here tend not to be more confined and conformed to the traditional duties and "place" of a woman as in Asian societies.

And in all honesty, I cannot stand that gross "forced" cuteness/childlikeness/super forced girly-girl" that is so popular in certain Asian countries. I find that highly unappealing and downright disturbing. Especially when they do the "high pitched voice" and act like they are toddlers. Gross and creepy!

But then, that is another country, another culture.

Not something I am interested in, nor want to emulate.

I think it's just a western thing. I much prefer feminine girls who are cute, thus in general I'm more attracted to girls from other countries. Not the self entitled, whiny girls that plague my area that learn everything from tumblr.

Sounds like here in America.

Tumblr, FaceBook and Google+

Being "strong" is different than being a dude, someone should teach that to Americans. Haha!

When you think about it, some place has to attract and keep all the undesirables, I should be thankful somewhat that they're all in one place sorta.

Yeah I think it's that sub culture that sorta lives in their own closed off world, yet they're the ones who think they're so 'down to earth' lol. You know the types.

Masculine Females? Maybe it's time to stop applying gender designations and assumed role models for behavioral comparisons.
