We were, until a couple decades ago. British men used to run the world pretty much. hard to do without being masculine

Well, it has been more than a few decades since British supremacy, hasnt it, indeed the middle and lower classes and perhaps a smidgeon of the upper crust always embodied manliness it was only the effeminate fops of the true blue bloods that ever gave British masculinity a black eye. Today's British emasculation most likely began with Thatcher's ascension and the modern era's saturation of Social Marxists values which permeate most of the West. At one time even the British aristocracy had many esteemed masculine gentlemen. May I give you the Marquis of Queensbury:

As has been previously stated, 'masculinity' to many is now a dirty word, so younger men are keen to disassociate themselves from it. No doubt that men are less masculine than they were, but perhaps the word itself has something to do with it.

Well, that in itself would be a travesty and even worse than the poll results.

I spent half an hour talking about superhero movies with a friend yesterday, I wouldn't call that masculine. I wouldn't call being wordy on a message board (even this one) to be particularly masculine.

The lower numbers for the under 25 crowd could be due to old fashioned rebellion against parents. "Dad's a dick, I don't want to be like him." Then, when you have your own family, realizing that he wasn't a dick, he was making tough choices for his kids...often without cooperation from a modernist wife. You start to appreciate, even admire, the masculinity that you resented. I suspect that, if you made the age grouping 16-19, 19-22 and 22-25, you'd see a steady decline in the disapproval of masculinity as these kids enter the workforce and start their own family.

I dunno man - it's one thing to rebel against your dad (justifiably so or not) - it's quite another to not consider yourself 100% masculine if you've got massive amounts of testosterone flowing through your veins. As a matter of fact - that would be the counter argument: Young bucks should feel even MORE masculine than fellows with dropping test levels and a lack of libido. How are those kids going to see themselves when they reach fifty??

Maybe it's all the fucking soy in today's diet. Maybe it's part brain washing. Whatever it is - it's scary as hell in the face of an Islamic invasion. Don't expect those chaps to jump at the chance to defend Britain or to make a stand against the increasing Muslim take over of their country.

I get that, but the dramatic drop in the number after 25 is suspicious. What would account for that? A modern 25 year old was raised with the same diet and programming a 23 year old was, yet there's such a drop in the number. The cause is most likely the stern realities of entering the workforce and starting their own families.

Look brother - I appreciate your desire for answers but I doubt that our group here will be able to nail it down to one definite reason. The Millennials may be pecking away at mobile phones and hedge doubts about their masculinity, but genetically they do not differ from our forefathers who themselves had to face highly stressful scenarios at every single stage of history.

Now I get that today's generation is facing a unique mix of issues past generations didn't have to deal with. But at the same time - they're not exactly being asked to step into an LCVP and storm the shores of the Normandy either, are they? How much stress and frustration do you think those poor bastards were exposed to? Did any of them consider themselves anything less than 100% masculine? I highly doubt it.

Honestly though when this is being held up as an example of how an "ideal man" should be it's no wonder more and more young men are going nationalist:

In fairness the in the Victorian era there was a big influx of sexual prudery, to the point that a lot of men had to see psychiatrists to treat sexual repression.

I've heard that a lot of the typical "white knight" rhetoric, such as "real men never hit women!", or "a gentlemen always defends the honor of a lady!" date back to this era.

Hence why in some ways there's a crossover between social conservatism and sex-negative feminism; some social conservatives today still insist on maintaining a prudish image of every woman as a "proper lady" even when she's more akin to Jezebel in the Bible.

You may want to do a bit more reading up on British political history with a statement like that.

It has nothing to do with Thatcher who is arguably the most conservative prime minster in modern British history. It was the next Labour government post 97 that had an a much more open door policy. That was Tony Blair and Gordon Brown Labour governments and then continued with the current Conservative administration.

The emasculation likely occurred during Tony Blair first premiership.

The Left - Right paradigm represents two flabby liberal butt cheeks of the same ass (liberal economics and liberal social mores).

Blair followed Bill Clinton in adopting the neo-liberal free trade which had been adopted by Labour's and the Democrat's apparent political rivals. The conservative parties in the west have adopted liberal social mores in return.

Thatcher destroyed the miner's unions which was the last militant group left of the Old Left. The heavy industrial economy in general was replaced by a consumer-driven service economy which suits the demographic group which used to buy things for and run the home.

Blair followed the same pattern but pumped up fake house prices and immigration. New Labour actually went out into the Third World to look for immigrants to bring in.

^^^^ Just to be clear, the Labour govt before Thatcher closed way more mines etc.

Heavy industry was on the way out. Totally destroyed. Thatcher just put it out of its misery.

Amazing woman.
