Subject: Masculinity in the 2010s....

Written By: Eazy-EMAN1995 on 12/20/16 at 2:20 am

After watching these vids made by Lenoard Banks it got me thinking.... has masculinity taken a downturn during this decade? If so will Trump ''fix it?''

Not sure if Trump will change it.

I mean, emos were those who rebelled against Bush, and they were a bunch of girly-looking wusses!

Masculinity isn't as powerful as it used to be, since most men are rather obsessed with something girly. I don't even know if Trump would fix it, since he actually supported the LGBT (which is criticized as not being masculine) during his campaign.

Emo was a small subculture, maybe 1-2% of people dressed like it.

More like 25% of the North American population. They were big enough to be considered a fad during the mid and late 2000s. Especially when they were rampant on Myspace.

My mother once told me that a man who has to worry about his masculinity has something to worry about.

My first husband used to say to me, "I'm the man! I'm the man!" One time I asked him, "Why do you keep telling me that? Are you afraid that I will forgot?" He never said that after.

If you are worried about your masculinity, maybe you should ask yourself why.

I bet the number of "emo lite" kids at your school was at least 75 if not higher.  They may have not been full emo, but they likely had shaggy hair with a swoop and wore tighter, brighter clothes than they wore in the early 2000s.  Emo heavily influenced late 2000s fashion.

If we're talking about emo-influenced, sure. It was probably a lot more than 25%. But it's a bit of revisionist history to say emo and the mindset of anti-masculinity was in any way dominant. If anything, I'd say anti-emo sentiments were way more in vogue than emo. By 2009 emo was mostly dead and derided.

Well since I've grown up in the south here in Georgia my whole life, the majority of my friends and acquaintances are pro-masculine. That hasn't changed over here throughout this decade. It's only become more acceptable to be feminine up north or in the west coast areas.

Living in the north-east for all my life, I'd tell you that it really depends on where exactly you're referring to. I live within the New York suburbs, and most guys around by me are the epitome of masculine. Many of the guys my age back in high school were into the hip-hop ('wigger', for the white kids trying to act tough ;D) trend or the guido trend. Not surprisingly a lot of these guys either voted for Trump in this election or they voted for Hillary but only on the basis that she was 'the lesser of two evils' not so much because they actually liked her.

However, if you were to travel an hour or so out of town into 'The Big Apple' I guarantee you almost all of the guys out there were staunch Hillary supporters & generally speaking you were to find more androgynous guys out in the city rather where I live.

The emo trend was around here back when I was in high school, and many of those kids are now hipsters. Heck even the more masculine guys around here incorporate some of the hipster trends into their appearance (such as the 'lumberjack beard', flannel shirts, insane amount of tatoos, etc.). And even then, despite most guys that are my age and around by me being more masculine, their's still a pretty healthy amount of guys who are more open minded and less confined on traditional gender roles, which makes sense since NJ's pretty liberal. I guess percentage wise I'd be, 70% Masucline, 30% Feminine/Androgynous.

Perhaps that may still be a culture shock to some of you from other parts of the country, and that's fine! Just trying to give you my perspective.

I suppose it just bothers me that, like full-on feminine women, suave men are so commonly blamed for "rape culture," "lack of diversity," and "not being yourself," at least with younger generations in urban communities. You aren't automatically presenting yourself as more wholesome just because you're a nu-male, really it's likely that you're just going along with what is now the norm.

Look, I'm full-on lesbian, I don't have the hots for guys, but even so, I can pinpoint when I find men emotionally attractive. Depending on the individual, I think guys in the 1980s and 1990s were pretty legit, the same applies even with the 2000s, to a degree (not the emos, just the ones who continued Y2K aesthetics or just remained unstyled). I don't mean asshole, narcissist jocks who shamelessly treat anybody who's not pitch-perfect like trash, I'm talking more the guys with a fair amount of confidence, but also a down-to-earth personality and an ambitious mind. Not necessarily macho men, but still identifiably male, just not pretentiously so. I suppose it's weird for me to be talking about what I find attractive in men, but I suppose you could refer to guys like Bruce Springsteen, Richard Marx, or even James Rolfe as which ones I'd be gushing the most over if I were straight or bisexual. In this day and age, even a James Rolfe can be derided as misogynist simply because of his taste for retro film and disapproval of the trailer for Ghostbusters '16, even if there's no concrete evidence whatsoever that he's sexist. I know Springsteen and Marx types are still pretty popular in some circles, but for the most part, the dominant culture of this era seems to lean either towards ultra-PC nu-males or pretentious hipsters.

With the ascent of Trump in a month from now, this black and white "accepting" (nu-males/rebel women) vs. "backwards" (presenting as traditionally masculine or feminine, regardless of degree, especially if you're gay or lesbian) schism is sadly bound only to widen.

I agree that the focus on masculinity has lessened in the 2010s, however it really shouldn't be a big concern. If anything, I think it's good that everyone is following their own paths and not basing themselves on a bunch of stereotypes. As for myself, I wouldn't consider myself to be a stereotypical masculine. On a test based on mentality (which is on the Personality Cafe forums), I scored 64% for feminine, 63% for androgynous and 42% for masculine. Despite these results, I don't act like a feminist, i'm a straight male and I don't view myself as being any other gender. Quite frankly, I believe there are more pressing issues in society than whether someone is masculine or not. It really shouldn't matter in this day and age, in my opinion.

Frankly, they are still bashing each other based on stereotypes, it's just that the tables have turned a bit since the past few decades. From my experience, it's not nearly as easy to be a girly-girl lesbian as it is, say, to be a nu-male or a tomboyish lesbian. Not that I'm being constantly harassed, but I feel unrepresented and unappreciated. People make it seem like there's something wrong with me and that I haven't discovered my true self.

In some ways it's lessened. Especially among teens who seem to take pride in being effeminate.

Perhaps under a Trump presidency, with the rise of trolling culture and teens seeming to gravitate that ("fuk da PC police, Trump tells it like it is bro. Sorry, did I trigger you there?"), masculinity among teens will make a comeback (though in a douchey way). American pop culture tends to shift based on who's president at the time, i.e. during the Bush and Reagan presidencies, we got a bunch of hyper-patriotic chest-pumping action movies.

Overall, my thoughts on what Leonard said, I kinda see where he's coming from.
Masculinity had taken a STEEP downturn this decade, although I'm not too surprised it's potentially a backlash against the 00s and even the 90s to a degree. Being extreme, cool, gangsta, and hard was the rage during those times. This decade it's been the complete opposite. Being nerdy and queer has been the rage.(There's nothing ring with being that way) But I must admit, things have become completely wussified. It's been kinda hard having the personality like mine in this era. For example, I maybe geeky and kind, but at the same time I still have my masculine peronsality.

That's gonna suck. I wish masculinty would make a comeback for 20 somethings like me.


And during the Clinton and Bush Jr. presidencies we got hardcore east coast hip hop, west coast gangsta rap, post grunge, nun metal, extreme culture, mature and BADASS cartoons, bling Bling style culture. So it feels like masculinity was always there until the Obama years came... But like I've said before it's backlash against the previous era. :o

I can completely relate to this in bold. You know, nerds being accepted, or being nerdy this decade doesn't necessarily mean it's the stereotypical "nerd look" or stereotypical "nerd personality" you'd see in pop culture throughout the 90's or 2000's. It's actually a cool type nerd look that has formed over the last several years. You got gamer girls or really smart girls who are considered as nerds because of how good at the game they are or how smart they are but in reality they have a cool look & personality to themselves and they're really fun to hang out with. Then you actually have people wearing glasses being accepted as a "style" now. Wearing glasses actually adds to your "swagger". A lot of people these days who are into comic books or serial drama shows (nerd culture in a sense) can actually be masculine people at the time.

Everything you said is correct my friend. :)  Badass nerdy culture is always welcome. You could make a strong argument it's been the rage the past few years of the 10s.
The big issue that I think I was addressing in my earlier post is that it needs to be embraced more I think. The extreme, gangsta, and bling bling style of the 90s and 00s felt embraced and played a major part in the cluture.
The nerdy,cool, badass fad just needs to feel more important. Also there needs to be a new manly, badass form of music as well.


I just want culture to feel manly again, which is kinda what the point of this thread is.  :\'( I'm sick and tired of this Feminem vibe I've gotten from this era/decade so far.... >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

I agree. Pitbull may be the only hope left for masculinity. And Ke$ha is the epitome of the feminine ideal.

No wonder that they made such great music together.


I think Pitbull enhances any song he touches. I'm not a Kesha fan by an stretch of the imagination but when I heard Pitbull's verse on the song, I was sold instantly. I wish more rappers followed in his example rather than Drake's.


No it's not, it means the government is putting estrogen in the water to turn male youth feminine.

Wake up sheeple!!!! ;D


I've noticed that a lot of men these days are feeling more ashamed to be masculine and it's *cooler* to be outwardly feminine and if not explicitly that, they're usually nerdy or something that in the past was considered lame and socially inept. It's cool these days to be a neckbeard nu male who's always on 4chan and reddit and plays too much online RPG's. Growing up today's gotta suck. I'm not a macho dude at all but when I was growing up, we had the X-Games and it was cool to ride skateboards and get big full body scrapes! Bands like Green Day and The Offspring weren't dudes who had big muscles in tank tops but they were pop punk slacker types who wore ripped up baggy clothes, messy hair and provided the soundtrack to my and other teens of the time's adolescence. While that stuff isn't masculine in the traditional sense I think you know what I mean by my examples. Like, they were still dudes, you know.

It was a lot bigger than that. It was more like 25%. I remember when they dominated the malls and saw lots of emo teens and saw people at the bus stops. It was ESPECIALLY HUGE in 06 and 07.

Looks like you're right about there being certain androgynous traits. I controlled for everything and clicked often on all of them. I get 100 masculine/100 feminine/100 androgynous.


Varying "conventional", it dropped to 100/100/95, suggesting it's an androgynous trait.

Varying "individualistic" it dropped to 95/100/100, suggesting it's a masculine trait.

Varying "independent" it dropped to 95/100/100, suggesting it's a masculine trait as well.

This is a complex topic related to changes in technology, social changes, ect. I myself don't self-identify as very masculine or feminine, definitely not some up in your face macho stereotype.

I am closer to a quiet, stoic masculinity embodied by men like Clint Eastwood.

I don't like a lot of talk from certain elements on the left/feminists about how white straight men are obsolete, shaming them for their identity(toxic masculinity), this never works and only brings greater social division.

After watching these vids made by Lenoard Banks it got me thinking.... has masculinity taken a downturn during this decade? If so will Trump ''fix it?''
J_qqPJiTuSo&t=3s 0TJjp673McE&t=144s

If he is using Donald Trump as a standard for masculinity, then you guys seem to embrace the most negative parts of it (gee, talking about how you want to rape someone sure is masculine)

Anyways, what is your obsession with masculinity and manliness Eazy-EMAN199? Are you that hateful of femininity or something? are you insecure?

I have barely been a member in this site, but I can easily recognize your obsession with manliness and your backlash against anythingn not. From your post criticizing Yu Yu Hakusho's Kurama for being "GIRLY" to your previous post whining how the 2010s hate manliness, it seems like you have a major issue about this.

All this hullabaloo about manliness, coming from someone who uses an avatar of a character who is voiced by a wonderful woman in her 70s. An avatar of a character who I can describe as being purely apathetic towards manliness since his character do not give an F about social norms to begin with.
A character who has dressed up in girl's clothing in the past
A character who used to always sleep specifically on his grandpa's GENITALS.

Anyways, Nothing wrong with being masculine, feminine, gangsta etc. as long you don't go all rapey and misogynist/misandrist and spit.
Except if the person is an extremist, when a person talks about toxic masculinity, he/she is talking about the homophobic/rapey aspect (and don't act like that part doesn't exist)

Yeah, like the test says, although I can't say how accurate or scientific it is, femininity and masculinity aren't contradictory. You can be both. Even I got a high score in both! Obama is very smart, calculating, but also very compassionate and caring.

Personally, I don't think a universal masculinity or femininity exists. It's based on culture, and a truly enlightened culture wouldn't base itself around strict gender roles. The way my parents raised me, someone like Tramp wouldn't be considered very masculine. He's emotional, easily triggered, not very scientific or mathematical (doesn't believe in climate change and absolute sh*t at math from what I've seen), abandoned his wife and children (not a provider), buys and wears gold (gold is considered very girly, and actually sinful for a man to wear) and gets cosmetic operations like spray tans. All that would considered very effeminate. But in America, someone like Trump is considered the epitome of manliness. Who is right and who is wrong? The answer is, they're both wrong. There is no such thing as (social) masculinity or femininity.

I mean, you don't even have to compare different countries. Compare your own! In the 18th century, make-up and cosmetics were for men. Women wearing make-up was considered unladylike. Pink was considered a masculine and tough colour. Who even decides this stuff?

Knowing this, I'd say people who would harp on about this sort of thing don't sound very well travelled to me.

Well, tbh It's not really masculinty that I'm truly a fan of. It's the badass and cool type of culture that I'm a fan of. Goku for example is a cool and badass character, despite being somewhat childish and goofy. Trunks, my fav character is a MAJOR badass.

I just want this current nerdy, yet badass culture of this era to be more embraced. I'm a big fan of the comic book/sci fi type culture this decade, it's been badass and cool. The fad needs to be embraced more widely like how the gangsta and extreme fad was embrcaed when I was a kid. It needs to overtake the SJW, PC, OVERLY sensitive crap of the last few years PRONTO. Like I said before, I also hope there's a new cool and smooth genre of music. Like how post grunge and hip hop/r&b was growing up.  :\'(

Now with Trump, that will definitely make a comeback, but not in a positive way. I have this main feeling that misogyny might increase rapidly due to the next president's comments.

Now with masculinity alone, why are guys not considered men if they are not manly enough? Who got to decide on that? Just because some guys have feminine traits doesn't make them a sissyboy. That makes them a real man! In fact, it's normal for everyone to have both manly and girly characteristics. Hell, even the LGBT have both despite their attraction towards the same gender or both.

No one, I guess. Human nature. Men are more aggressive than women just by nature alone. Teenage young men and in their 20's are very aggressive. It doesn't mean that all men are the same and that all women are the same. But that doesn't mean that sexism and discrimination is okay either.

In some ways it's lessened. Especially among teens who seem to take pride in being effeminate.

Perhaps under a Trump presidency, with the rise of trolling culture and teens seeming to gravitate that ("fuk da PC police, Trump tells it like it is bro. Sorry, did I trigger you there?"), masculinity among teens will make a comeback (though in a douchey way). American pop culture tends to shift based on who's president at the time, i.e. during the Bush and Reagan presidencies, we got a bunch of hyper-patriotic chest-pumping action movies.

Edit: Remove controversial opinion


I have no problem with masculinity. When I go to gay events, I tend to be a number 7 on the Fem-Masc 1-10 scale. I do have a HUGE problem with douchiness.  I would rather stay in this era than enter an era where Trumpet trolls dominate the culture. A lot of those people are literally racist and sexist and if you think a bunch of people who believe the U.S. would be better without non-whites (or all nonwhites except Asians) dominating the culture will make things better instead of insanely worse, I have a bridge to sell you. If these people take hold, we'll go from imitating the 60s to emulating The Nadir.

I'm more than fine with the ridiculous and divisive proponents/arguments of social justice being shaved off tho.

Here is the thing about Trump. He ain't like other Republican presidents and he ain't like other presidents in general. I may not have approved of Bush but he did carry himself around with a degree of dignity. Trump carries himself with the amount of dignity a stereotypical reality TV showrunner carries. Trump is the first potential president/president-elect I've ever witnessed where most of his supporter's argument is "c'mon! Just give him a chance!"

The late 2010s will be defined more strongly by an anti-Trump sentiment rather than a pro-Trump sentiment.

His presidency hasn't even started with it, and already his net approval rating is negative. History shows us that's only headed downwards. Inauguration day is the highest you can expect the president's approval to be. After that, the president has to make unpopular decisions that ends the honeymoon season.

Considering also that it's the youth who drive popular culture, and California, I wonder what Trump's approval rating among the 11-29 demographic looks like. According to YouGov (links to PDF file), his approval rating is 44% among the general population, but that drops to 30% among those aged 18 to 29, and the disapproval rating is 58% among that age grouop. These people are not going to start buying pro-Trump anthems lol, quite the opposite ;D

The ties that the emo subculture had to the LGBT community were really minimal at best. You didn't have to be homophobic to despise the commercialization of a culture of excessive depression (or appearance of it) and the cutting/suicide it was associated with. Even the aesthetics of it can be off-putting to some, and the music was considered to be low-quality by many.

That said, the 2000s were an incredibly homophobic decade, and the late 2000s weren't an exception. "Gay" meant homosexual (men), but in the 2000s, it was also synonymous with lame, terrible, undesirable, stupid etc. People would call things "gay" simply if they didn't like it, and that could include emo. An example sentence, "Ugh, it's snowing today? That's so gay". If you talk to people in their mid-20s to mid-30s, you'll still see the word commonly being used that way. Thankfully, with people 21 and under, I don't see it being used that way as often, so that's good.

First of all I think Trump just acts macho for the camera's at times but he is really not really that manly.

As far me being manly I like the usual guy stuff like sports and cars. Aside from that I'm pretty neutral between masculine and feminine qualities. I am an INFJ personality type and INFJ's are usually pretty mature.

Obama does have feminine qualities, no shade. He's probably very smart and articulate. And he cares about those discriminated against.
But he can be masculine in a stoic and quiet way. His mind is probably sharp like a velociraptor.

Hannibal Lecter is 'smart' and a 'pussy', yet he would tear your limbs off while calculating how to screw with your mind.

I've seen Obama been criticized as too unemotional.
So people's criticism can't always be trusted.
I do think Obama is very introverted. I don't find him to be an extrovert. He likes playing golf and is a big sports watcher. He has a few close friends I think from his Chicago Circle like David Axelrod(his former senior advisor) and Valerie Jarrett.

Same. Some can tell instantly, but some of my friends have known me for 5 years now still don't know ;D

I've actually had an hilarious experience this year. In the spring, I met an 18/19 year old kid at the mall. He sat at my table in the food court because there was nowhere else to sit, and we started talking and we hit it off.

At first, I thought he was gay. But he starts talking to me about his girl problems and asking me for advice. I give it to him, probably really bad advice. This goes on for like 6 months, we become really good friends.

In the fall, he calls me up for drinks. He was crying his heart out over his girl problems, asking me what to do. Then he finally asked the question he should've asked ages ago...

Him: Have you ever dated anyone?
Me: Yeah, in middle school. It was only for like 2 weeks though, then I had to move.
Him: So you didn't have a girlfriend for all of high school and uni?
Me: Oh, I never had a girlfriend, I'm gay.
Him: *worldview comes crashing down* ...What? Why didn't you tell me before? Why am I talking with you about girls?!

Timber by Ke$ha ft. Pitbull sounded lame. Nothing against Pitbull since I don't know him enough, but I'd rather endure a Hawthorne Heights album than a Calvin Harris one (he makes most of the awful music here in the UK).

Even if I didn't have to listen to the lyrics, the melody was lazy. They're just trying too hard not to sound generic or childish, and that's the big problem I have with 2010s music. Artists (or their composers) created a new generic sound, one that sounded bland.

Anyway, all that really matters is not how masculine or feminine someone is, but how good they are based on what they can do, be it conforming to their gender or otherwise. A man who can design fine clothes is as good as a man who can score first place at a sporting event most of the time.

I scored 67.544 out of 100 masculine points, 54.167 out of 100 feminine points, and 70 out of 100 androgynous(neutral) points. :o :)

No one, I guess. Human nature. Men are more aggressive than women just by nature alone. Teenage young men and in their 20's are very aggressive. It doesn't mean that all men are the same and that all women are the same. But that doesn't mean that sexism and discrimination is okay either.
Yeah, that's true it is human nature, and I agree with your statements. No man or woman is absolutely the same. In fact, we're all over the spectrum. Moreover, just because a guy is feminine or that a girl is masculine DOESN'T mean they should be discriminated against. Besides, there's nothing wrong with being them. They're not hurting anyone.


Yep, how do you think I got a score of 90.833 feminine points yet only 50.833 masculine points (the points that I did get apparently mostly the result of my resistance to modern culture) on the questionnaire, despite identifying solidly as a lesbian? The overwhelming majority of straight females who took the test on Personality Cafe were more masculine and less feminine than I was.
I think it's because you were being true to yourself on the questionnaire by embracing your femininity completely compared to some ladies who preferred to be in the middle.

I also apologize for responding late. I forgot this was posted and I have been meaning to reply.

I thought Calvin Harris was a chick until I realized he simply doesn't sing in his songs. Still boss.

I've been thinking about this thread and I'm weirded out by something. Are people in this thread annoyed that men aren't playing up their masculinity as much now or are they annoyed that hyper-masculinity gets a bad rap now?

I'm not annoyed by anything personally. I couldn't give a care about masculinity vs. femininity.  :P

No. I think they were annoyed that masculinity had declined throughout this decade and now thanks to Trump, it has increased.

How exactly has it increased?

IDK. But I think this "pathological" masculinity has been more accepted when it's seen to be more socially acceptable to make others feel bad, since under Trump, masculinity doesn't consider people's feelings.
