this article is as anti-male as it gets[edit]

having a penis is not a crime... —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 4.152.105.16 (talkcontribs) 30 July 2006 (UTC)

Indeed , It's a good thing nowdays more people respond to biased information and can see the source , the context and find out who was the author. Instead of take it as fact from nowhere and follow it blindly.

Umm, what about creativity??[edit]

Does anyone reading this article wonder why there are so few female software engineers, composers, sculpters, musicians, etc?

Yeah, this article really IS about as anti-male as you can get. Most of these traits discussed in this article are shared with baboons and gorillas. Big deal.

This article is the same as having femininity be described as "estrogen poisoned" over concerned about physical appearance women who can not introduce anything new to scociety and can't park a car '

or something of this sort , but it would never be like that cause its tagged sexist , but not the other way around. (it still is if it's the only kind of description of femininity , but I hope you get it)

this article almost reads like propaganda.

The reason why masculinety exist[edit]

People have written here what masculinety is, but still not why it exist. Why there is a difference betwen male and female behavior. It is quite logical that it exist because some characteristics are beneficial for a male and makes his life better, or better for the society as a whole. Do anyone have a reference for this, because it is most probably the case. Olehal09 (talk) 16:04, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

As noted on my talk page, but intially not in a friendly fashion, I reverted you because your addition is not only unsourced, but has grammar/language barrier issues. It is like someone inserted rambling thoughts about masculinity into the lead. There is clearly a language barrier regarding what you intend to get across in the lead, and I'm not entirely sure what you are proposing. Flyer22 (talk) 19:43, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

If so, you need to write that after editing. Try to be decent. As I have written over, we need to write why masculinity exist, not just what some sociologists believe it to be. Why do men feel the need to behave a surtan way. Olehal09 (talk) 20:41, 25 December 2014 (UTC)
