Millennial Men Ditching Traditional 'Masculine' Values, More Likely To Embrace 'Emotional Strength'

VANCOUVER — As the famous Village People song declares, "Every man wants to be a macho macho man / To have the kind of body, always in demand." But are "macho macho" mindsets becoming a thing of the past? A new study finds that male millennials are drifting away from stereotypical masculine values.

The research, led by the University of British Columbia, showed that younger men tend to value selflessness, social engagement, and health over traditional male ideals like physical strength and autonomy.

Of course, physique and independence were still prominent values for the 630 Canadian men aged 15 to 29 who took part in the survey, just not as important to participants as selflessness. In fact, selflessness was by far the top-rated male value. Nine in 10 respondents said that men should should help others, and 88 percent of the respondents agreed that men should be open to new ideas, new people, and new experiences. Eight in 10 felt it imperative that a man gives back to his community.

"Young Canadian men seem to be holding masculine values that are distinctly different from those of previous generations. These values may run counter to long-standing claims that young men are typically hedonistic, hypercompetitive, and that they risk or neglect their health," notes lead author John Oliffe, nursing professor and head of the men's health program at UBC, in a news release.

Maintaining tip-top health was also important to the vast majority of men, but that didn't mean having chiseled abs and twenty-four inch biceps, or "pythons," as Hulk Hogan would often say. Three-quarters of participants did feel that physical strength was important, but that finding was still notably less than the 87 percent who agreed a man should embody intellectual strength or the 83 percent who viewed emotional strength as highly important. Similarly, only 78 percent of men listed autonomy as a defining "male" characteristic.

"As a millennial myself, I can see these values reflected in the lives of men around me," says study co-author Nick Black, managing partner at Intensions Consulting, a research firm that helped carry out the survey. "They want to be both caring and strong, both open to others and self-sufficient, and they see no contradiction in these values."

They're not drifting away from it. They're being indoctrinated and manipulated. Shamed and ridiculed about masculinity at every turn.
Selflessness is nothing new that men all of a sudden are embracing over masculinity. I argue that selflessness has always been part of masculinity. Millions of men have died selflessly throughout history, doing things like fighting tyrants, defending their homes, running into burning buildings, putting on the badge, the uniform, etc.....

That was my first thought. And also, men throughout history have been helping others and have been open to new ideas.

The problem seems to be not what men are like but how feminazis and others like them want to view us. We don’t kowtow to the AOCs and Pelosis and Hillarys - automatically selfish. We refuse to go along with socialists and third world dictators - we are unhelpful. We don’t want to try obviously failed ideas like socialism - so we are not open to new ideas (while we invent new medicines, make smart phones and learn to kill people with good rifles from a mile or more away).

Sorry, but to me this generation's conception of "selflessness" often seems to mostly consist of speaking and hashtagging about "global social justice" and feeling somehow offended on behalf of theoretical others, and then taking a bow for being so virtuous. Howzabout just quietly going about your business in the real world around you everyday so you can be in a position to move out of your parents' basements and then be able to actually, "selflessly" support real people in your life like, maybe, a wife and children for starters?

Edit to add: Given the subject, can't resist adding this photo of one of today's "selfless" and "emotionally strong":

Want proof? Look at the "men" currently used in advertising: Sub 5'10" hipster beards in skinny pants with soft shoes to go with their soft heads. Narrower shoulders than most of the women in the ads, and they're not up against butches, either.

I'm seeing the term "toxic masculinity" in the news more frequently. Up until a couple years ago I had never heard that term. I'm not sure who's behind it, but it's not much different than trying to take our guns away. From an enemy-of-the-state's perspective, it doesn't matter if guns are common when everyone is a beta male. The odds of them fighting back has been reduced.

Of course, there’s no “toxic” masculinity, unless mma or wwf or nhl qualify. They don’t abuse and blame others.

On the other hand, there definitely is “feminazism”, blaming men they can’t hook up with for being “toxic”.

The culture war marches on. It started in the higher education swamp and has spread across our entire national make up. It has to end in civil war.Arm up and keep your powder dry.

Feminists mostly started it, but it has been embraced by the leftists and globalists. Like you said, there won't be many with the will to defend against tyranny, since leftists have been working on trying to redefine courage as getting your unit removed, getting implants, shooting yourself up with estrogen, and claim you're a woman.

It's a product of over 50 years of progressivism.

Now days it's progressivism on steroids, well more like on estrogen.

Each generation down gets more pussified.

I remember this crap beginning back in the hippy days back in the 1960's.
