I would define it as being strong (not just physically, but overall as a person), confident and comfortable in your own skin.
I’ve never thought about it, but I don’t think it does at all.
That’s funny, because a lot of people close to me would consider me as not as masculine as other men they know. I used to think of it as an insult, but thinking about it now, I think they were comparing to the stereotype of a masculine man. My definition of that is the macho acting douchebags I see in the gym everyday and the guys that go out of there way to not be sweet, caring, thoughtful or even chivalrous because they think it makes them look weak.
Someone that doesn’t have to flash their masculinity, it just comes off of them automatically. Like I said, comfortable in their own skin without a worry about what any one else thinks. Not cocky, just being themselves. Celebrity that comes to mind would be Jason Statham. Fictional character would have to be Archer, but he is definitely the stereotypical masculine person, still awesome though.
I have always been self-conscious about my body for as long as I can remember. I work out 5 days a week and am probably the most comfortable with my body now than I have ever been right at this moment, but I don’t think it is or will ever be good enough.
So many to choose from…just kidding. If I had to pick anything, I think it would be my stomach.
More often than not, my eyes are what get the most attention.
I am most comfortable with my chest and shoulders, just because they stand out more than anything else on my body. I do appreciate everything about myself though.
I am most insecure about my legs. As much as I try to work them out, they seem to stay the same. Even in the summer time, I rarely wear shorts.
I really don’t pay attention to any one about how I should look, act, etc. Love it or hate it, I am and will always be me and how I want to be. But of course, when you look any where, it’s all about how you look first, before any one gets to know anything about you. I don’t think that’s right, but that is the world we live in today.
I don’t think any one should be gifted with any thing special just because of their gender or race or anything else. Everyone should be judged by their actions and on the person they are on the inside, not out. But again, that is not the world we live in.
