I reckon men are slowing turning into the weaker gender .... all too often you can't get into the bathroom these days because your man has already been in there for hours pampering himself .. moisturisers, mascaras, hair gels .. whatever next ... waxing their legs, shaving their underarms ... ohh sorry I forgot .. men already do all that don't they ... Is you man becoming a softee???

OMG Toots, I had to weep at the thought of actually doing this to myself, I mean waxing? Shaving parts of my anatomy that would be totally sacriledge to my hard to keep up macho image! The bathroom is one place I don't like to linger in, apart from when I have a bath. I certainly don't use mascara, do men really use mascara? I probably don't pamper myself enough. I've got bitten nails, my hair is kept short so I don't have to spend hours trying to shape it or comb it in the right direction. I use deodorant and my trusty scent but that's it. In and out in five minutes. Come round here and you'll have the bathroom to yourself for ages! I've gone all funny now thinking about shaving my underarms and waxing my hairy chest, enough to bring tears to me eyes!

Men who do all that kind of stuff are definite weaklings. I think it is fine if they just shave a few key spots, but waxing legs and using hair product and face stuff is ridiculous. Men are getting pampered as kids and grow up weak. If things don't change soon, the whole world will be metrosexual. I hate it.

I'm guilty of Gelling my hair, but thats it. The most time I spend in the bathroom it to shave and shower. I do my hair really quick but thats it. Its not our fault. In the animal kingdom me have to not onbly be the big mach ones, but also have to be the pretty ones to attract a mate. Since the feminist movement there is a fine line between chivalry and chauvanism, so we decided it might just be safer to try and look pretty to attract a mate. Personally I want to go back to chivalry, I dont do the look pretty thing very well.

That's a well thought out statement .. thank you .. you are quite right about males having to be the pretty show offs in nature .. and often wonder why the roles are reversed with humans ... And if your avatar is your own picture then you look perfectly presentable to me ;o)
