    Is this supposed to be a real choice? Who in their right mind would vote for Tyson?

    Masculinity is fake. Feminity is fake. Be human.
    Oh yeah, feminism IS liberalism. I don't know one feminist conservative. Not one. You say masculinity is fake? Your definition leaves much to be desired. If masculinity is not what differentiates us from women, then what is it?

    Here we go with the basics... Men are gifted with logic, women with emotion. That is the basis for how the two live life. To say masculinity is fake is to say there is no difference between the sexes. And that, sir, would be an evolutionary statement without basis in biology, history or culture. Men who love women and yet hate feminism would disagree with you.

    Re: Mike Tyson or Mr. Rogers?

    I can remember as a child how mike tyson was a force that couldnt be reconciled with, like the grim reaper, I remember watching douglas knock him out
    I can remember the infamous interview with robin givens
    tupac shakur was killed after his fight with bruno, I think, in 96
    robin givens and don king were the end of tyson
    his story is a real human tragedy
    I would liken me seeing Lennox Lewis 's brutal annilation of tyson as one of the saddest moments in my life

    More masco-mccarthyism. If you want me to take your seriously, you'll knock it off.

    The only reason most feminists are liberals is because most feminists are pro-choice people. That's pretty much it. feminism is not liberalism. The reason most MRA's are conservative is because most MRA's are pro-life. Abortion, regardless of how you stand on it, is not a gender issue, so anyone who equates feminism with liberalism or conservativism with masculinism shouldn't be taken seriously.

    It is the viewpoint that masculinity and feminity are natural ideas that make misandry possible. Misandry is not possible if we think of men and women as being equally human and having more similarities than differences. Masculinity is fake. Feminity is fake.

    Be human.
    Of course feminists are liberal. Feminists goals could not be accomplished without the intervention of the national governments.

    If anything MRA's have more libertarian views.

    There is of course such a thing as masculinity and femininity. I think he meant they are a cultural construct in that they change depending on the time period. What is considered masculine today might not be tomorrow.


    The majority of what is defined as masculinity has been determined by women and serves women.

    There probably is an inherent masculinity but much has been defined by women's need and in that sense masculinity does need to be redefined.
    I just think that men and women should be whatever they damn well feel like being. It is totally ignorant to say there is something wrong with Mr. Rogers, or that he was not a "real man" because he is calm, pleasant and nice.

    Now as far as masculinity being real, consider this...

    [img]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...0px-0064MC.jpg[/img]Who is this totally "unmanly" guy depicted with this sculpture? This is the mighty Hercules. If Hercules walked down the street looking like that today he would be called a "gaywad" a "queer" and everything else. Hercules was the perfect symbol of "manhood" in both greek and roman mythology.

    Anything masculine or feminine comes from culture. It is just as conceivable that men would be wearing eyeliner and skirts, sipping their drinks with their pinky raised and crossing their legs as women if our cultural histories had been a little different. Women could just as likely be the one's spitting tobacco. Most "gender distinctions" come from culture. They are just silly cultural constructs that should be entirely ignored.

    Feminity is negative. Masulinity is negative. Be human.

    All "masculine men" are trying to be that way so they can fit in with society. It's fake.

    I don't know who Mr. Rogers is - I'm assuming it's some American thing. I didn't vote for him, but I just wanted to say that Mike Tyson was, at one point, a really amazing athlete; I take no pleasure from the fact that he has become such a dope.

    This is a poorly conceived poll. Mike Tyson is a multiple predicate felony offender and is certified mentally ill (BiPolar Disorder). Mr. Nice Guy versus The Ear Biter = nollo contendere.
    Yep. I agree.

    Just as there is nothing wrong with being a big strong man, there is nothing wrong with being like Mr. Rogers. Does Mr. Rogers have to lift weights all day and grow a goa-t to be respected for being a man?

    Although there is nothing wrong with being a big strong man, there is something wrong with Mike Tyson.

    Thus far the poll results have said good things about this site.

    I think Mr. Rogers was a damn good guy and a good representation of a man.

    I would say the same thing of Steve Irwin, who certainly was not "effeminate."

    Femininity and masculinity are cultural constructs.

    well we know that your idea of the 'traditional male"-is a ruthlless unloving ,uncaring neanderathal type of man-so what is it u want out of this poll?
    A very good question....

    Seems that the choices are limited to either a neanderthal thug or a supposed effeminate male. Seems to be a loaded question to me...
