    We don't want to go back to that.

    I remember watching a sports show this summer that was plugging the expendables and they claimed that Sylvester stalone was the epitome of masculinity... completely emotionless.
    Actually, Stallone is a good balance (voice and appearance aside). He wrote Rocky. That shit made me cry.

    I think he's an ESFP actually. Some of his characters lack emotion, but he's said Rocky was close to him.. and voiced the kind of things Stallone wished he could say more often... but is too embarrassed to.

    They're playing hide and seek.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    Where have they gone? I do so love how often people put their desires in the past tense. Once upon a time, things must have been better, right? An odd assumption. I wonder why it's so common.

    I have a question that's sort of a variation of the OP's. Have their ever been more than a handful of women that weren't looking for guys like the ones the OP describes?

    But I know how to cook, sugar!

    Wait. Shit.

    To my knowledge, bra burning never actually happened.

    Anyhow, it seems to me that out of the sixties, there was a much bigger change to how women lived and behaved than there was to men. And after all, feminism was largely self-help, and women were the gender at the disadvantage. It would be reasonable if there was a mentality of not fixing what isn't broken amongst a lot of the men who enjoyed the advantage.

    What you're essentially complaining about is level 2 men.

    Well, as Outsider and I pointed to: there's plenty to complain about when it comes to level 2 women.
    If I can get past a lot of the prototypical ideas here that tend to nauseate me, it sounds like you're saying people should be capable of acting in ways traditionally considered feminine or masculine as they so need, in which case I essentially agree.

    I think the last two available real men moved in together and opened a hair salon in Sausalito.

    I find it ironic that women complain about "real men" disappearing when they were the ones who wanted it.

    We are still around though.

    Yeah i think I misquoted them... they said that stalone's character was the epitome of masculinity.

    Sometimes I have a hard time believing that stalone wrote rocky... just like i have a hard time believing affleck wrote good will hunting.

    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    You're very good at riducle, it seems... but not so good at taking any kind of stand, so far as I'm aware.
