American Crew products.
Going after lots and lots of women.
The “ideal” image of a man society projects out. Or at least in a majority of the mainstream media that promotes this kind of lifestyle. As I’ve said in the previous post, men are seen today as boys in mens bodies by the rest of society. The dummy, the mommy’s boy, the vain bro who constantly takes pictures of his abs for Twitter and Instagram.
You have to really wonder what does it really take to be a man these days. Society tries to “redefine” what it means to be a man with vanity and lust, but men were never meant to be this way. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against having sex or being independent, but far too many people including men, think that they need these things to have a “real” masculine image of themselves, only to fail epically. Let’s dissect the samples of the so called ideal “modern” man.
Ripped Abs – You can lift all you want, get huge abs, and have all the ladies look at you. But at heart, you can be as insecure as the loner in the corner. A great example of this was shown in a recent prank by Vitalyzdtv. The prankster went to a local gym, asking the athletes there if they even lifted, mocking their muscle size. They almost all felt like their manhood was insulted. This comes to show that having abs and such doesn’t make you instantly an Alpha Male. You’re merely disguising the insecurity that’s still lurking around.
Big D – Getting Axe, American Crew, and other “manly” smelling products, doesn’t mean the chicks will come to you. Sure, they may like the smell, but the overpowering aroma will probably make you a drug addict.
The Player – You may look like 007 after having sex with more than 20 women. However when it comes to settling down, you’ll have an extremely difficult time building up trust with your significant other. Think of it, will your future wife focus on you while you’re making love to her in bed? Or will she be wondering if you are having a fantasy of being with one of your previous girls? If you do engage in this kind of activity, it makes it more challenging to gain the trust of others, causing a huge amount of pain in conflicts. Products offer advice for men to become bolder, go after an abundance of women, are often playing on the insecurities of men.
Being a man really means that you have honor, values, and integrity, not depending on external validation. Being a man means you have a great personality that exudes charisma, enthusiasm, and boldness. You can have no abs and a beer gut, but be considered a man when you have all of this.
