Haven't heard about that. It reminds me of the "Kick a ginger day".

Idiots.

Pretty graphic, their faces were pretty messed up.

Why assume dishonesty, rather than people simply are attracted to different things?

I used to be extremely attracted to very skinny guys, including ribs, if they were showing. I don't think it had to do with society's influence, at least not any more than a normal amount. I think society influences most things, to at least some extent.

I like how you put that! It is a vicious circle.

Oh yes! Who wants rough, scratchy feet snuggling in bed with them? Manicured, well groomed nails are a good idea, too. This is not a gender issue. It's cleanliness and good grooming. Men are human beings first. Human beings need good grooming.

In addition, a pedi is very relaxing. It's a good stress reducer. Why shouldn't men enjoy being pampered, too.

See, you admit it.

"Why assume dishonesty, rather than people simply are attracted to different things? "

Why are there more people attracted to thinness than people attracted to fatness ?

I'm not saying personal preferences don't have any impact, but we are so much influenced that we can't know for sure what would our preferences be without these influences.
And if there's one thing we know for sure, it's the content of those influences.

Being attracted to something that happens to be society's convention (thinness) and which excludes natural things (rolls of fat, and feminine curves), and saying that you're not baised and influenced, is being pretentious, in my opinion.

...but VI, people are attracted to different things.

Not everyone gives a crap about what society feels, again like the men who like not fat...but morbidly obese women.

...that's why there are so many fetishes, people are into some odd stuff.

Amputees, obesity, Brunette, Blonde, tall, short, men in skirts. LOL

Obviously those attractions don't conform to societies ideas of a norm.

Yes, but people are sheep too. I don't care what people like, but at least, when they are, I want them to recognize it.

They'll just accuse one another of being part of it. >.<

Stupid parasitic hoomuns. : P

Not sure who said they weren't biased. Of course people are influenced. But I'm not interested in an uphill battle, in fighting for a guy to be attracted to me. In my early 20s, I kept gravitating towards guys who liked little boobs and brown hair. Then in my later 20s and early 30s when I was at my heaviest, I wasted so much time wailing and gnashing my teeth over society, and how shallow it was for guys to want skinny girls, yada yada. But it's not like I lost weight to get in the game. To me, that is a bit of narcissism -- expecting people to be attracted to me, that it's like some moral obligation to chubby chase or think I'm just so freaking awesome that they'll suddenly desire some DDs. I stopped doing it. Everyone has different attractions, myself included, so I enjoyed my friendships with guys who didn't find me attractive, and dated the ones who did (when it was mutual).

Hey at least you weren't chasing after gay men, trying to make them straight...though that does seem like the ultimate challenge. LOL

...I had my gay neighbor tell me he'd give me a shot though, was like ummm.

Yeah..no.

Pondered if I should be flattered for days. : P

Yeah, I was commenting on how it was nice to go out with a friend and not have any of those weirdnesses, since I wasn't his type...and then he said that.

...welcome to weirdness. >.<

Anyway, I agree with you on the fact that it's ridiculous to chase after someone for whom you clearly aren't the type and to try to change their preferences.

Or you've got to have loads of self-esteem.

Maybe the thrill of the chase.
Ultimate challenge, like Asuigeneris1 said.

Men getting mani/pedis is fantastic. (some of you can stand a little wax and tweeze too, lmao) i love manis/pedis why wouldn't a man. I define a "manly" man as confident enough to do what's right and just for them. Live and let live, and if we could all be well groomed and relaxed while living, good for us. cheers!

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 5, 2012 2:34:21 PM PST
I just got my mani/pedi done Saturday. I get one done about every three weeks and so far that keeps my nails healthy and my feet in good shape. I can wear shoes for longer than 18hrs at times and so far I haven't had to have them worked on by a Dr. As far as waxing goes my wife does that because she hates bushy brows so she grooms that part for me. Waxing and tweezing is a minor problem to look good. There should be more places that advertise for men's grooming needs. A nice facial to get rid of the black heads would be nice too.

there's nothing wrong with earrings any more. LeBron James also carries a purse and so are only athletes and rockers allowed to do what they want. I think not. that is just plain stupid.
