Exactly! I put my make-up on backstage, before I enter the theatre! I wonder how it affects my performance in public

Real men may eat quiche but they don't wear make-up!!


No, no, no, no, real men don't even eat quiche...

Wearing make-up? Not in this lifetime!!!!

Hmmm. I used to LOVE men who wore make up...but that was in my youth (punk rocker). I now don't mind a few hair products...but no make up nowadays. I would find myself wanting to scrub his face.

I don't know much about trends but I see quite a few murky teenage guys wearing dark eye makeup nowdays, even lipstic on a couple occasions.
I think it looks cute.

eyeliner, a little mascara, nails painted black...mmmm gotta love that punk/goth look on a man. ROWR! ; )

i'd have to pass on a man wearing rouge or foundation tho...considering neither are part of my own make-up routine, and i tend to find that much makeup can look pretty cakey and fake on either gender.

OOH, thats a fine line to tread on. Pete Wentz works it, Billy Joel works it. Foundation and blush, is a no go, however, im sure there are a few around that could rock the eyeliner.

I have to say, as a man who wears makeup (80's Rocker) I am attractive either way. And I have had good girlfriends. If you cant get over a little touching up with face paint/lip crap, then boo on you. Like the commercial says "you've come a long way girl"

BTW...I really look/feel/act the 80's part. It's genuine, and fits with me perfectly...dont all try it, you'll look like a fag (Like your an actual fag, seriously. Not just doing it for fun)

Rigid stereotypes. Hillbilly responses. Annie get yer gun! I hate faggots! Any man with makeup is not real man! All men eat steak and potatoes. All men like baseball.


Tell me Chris Angel Mindfreak doesnt look cool with eyeliner.
Explain to me why so many politicians and actors use makeup on stage and on camera.
Explain why its wrong to cover ugly zigs and under eye circles with concealer.

I dont wear makeup, I am a makeup artist though and I can see where it has its place.

But what bothers me is the astounding number of women who go on and on about manly men. What, pray tell is a manly man?

a. a dude who hunts?
b. a dude who likes to work on engines?
c. a dude who mostly likes sports?

What is a manly man? Brad Pitt sure doesnt qualify. Hes too busy helping starving kids. Thats not a manly thing to do. Neither is Obama. Hes not manly. Hes educated, erudite and compassionate. Real men dont do compassion, they strut around full of CONFIDENCE, wowing all before them.

Get real, ladies.

Ahh, I see. Its your STEREOTYPE of what your DADDY was. Now it makes sense. Thanks for clearing that up.

Girls: You strut around in track pants, slacks, with short hair styles, you play hockey, you take boxing classes and you own your own businesses.

But somehow thats ok. Double standard.

No "man" should wear make-up in my opinion. Every man I've been with or known has had too much testosterone in their body to want to do that. Some men are into and it's there thing which is fine but not my thing.

Meh, I do it from time to time. Not on a regular basis. Just whenever I feel like doing something a little out there that I know is going to grab people's attention at a show or a party or something.

I'm all for people embracing their natural gender roles. I've addressed that plenty of times on here, but wearing makeup in and of itself doesn't really emasculate a guy (well, not in the way that I do it anyway.... I'm not pulling a Davey Havok or anything). Masculinity generally comes more from how you carry yourself than what you wear. Look at guys like Jerry Only and Mike Ness. They're about as manly as they come. They lose nothing by adding a little bit of eye makeup. They'll stomp your ass and look good doing it.

Most of your typical metro/emo/whatever types aren't wusses because they wear makeup. They were already wusses and started wearing makeup after the fact.

OK,
Here's my 2 cents worth. I am the woman, therefore I wear the makeup, the nail polish, color my hair, wear earrings ( I can accept small diamond studs or tasteful rings on guys) and any man who usurps my position as the great painted lady will be subject to ridicule and perpetual laughter.
I want my man to be a man, smell like a really nice cologne (but not bathe in it), wear deodorant, keep a check on the unibrow if necessary, but not overdo it, and I swear to high heaven if I catch him flexing naked in the mirror at himself, I will never let him live it down.

I dig a lot of guys in black eyeliner, or with black nail polish.

It's a personal preference thing, IMO. But I think people who don't adhere to rigid gender roles tend to be more fun and interesting -usually pretty smart too...

Ah, message 53. The first intelligent thing that's been said here yet.

Masculinity and femininity are nebulous concepts, hard to pin down. And they change over time. Look at portraits from the past. The idea that a man's clothes had to be dark and plain is a relatively modern concept. Henry VIII certainly didn't dress like that.

A personal preference is a personal preference. If you don't feel attracted to guys who wear make-up, that's fine. But there's no need to demean them. I don't wear makup myself, and don't imagine myself doing so in the future. It's not an image that attracts me. But if I ever did, would that make me worth any less as a person?

And the guy who said that such men should be beaten to death is revealing his own insecurities. That line might be amusing, if such things didn't actually happen in real life, which they do. In that context, the line is disgusting. The person who posted it and the people who laughed at it should be ashamed of themselves. It's horrible.
