How can one preserve the concept of manliness in this modern age of liberal views and cultural influences?
In ancient times, man is known for his masculinity, superiority towards his race. His decision is always final and no doubt about it, can be the law. When we read books about man during ancient times, they look pretty dirty as if they do take a bath once in a blue moon (I take a bath twice a day at the most). Their faces are filled with facial hair (mustache and beard) as well as they sport a long hair which looked good on them but during their time. If women of today would be asked if they wanted to go out with a guy like that, In a flash, they'll say no.
However, in the 21st century where women wanted to be treated equally with men, I'd say these kind of looks (ancient times) won't look good especially women prefer a clean, shaved man over anyone else. Also women preferred men with moral values over barbaric ones. Given that most men have these good traits and values (both from old and modern times), women would still pick again, a clean, shaved man over a dirty-looking one.
If you ask me, one should be more conscious on how they look and how would they present themselves with women. Before, it doesn't matter how I look as long as I take a bath once a day. But taking a bath isn't enough. We should also take care of our face and body and prevent any unnecessary odor.
Then I recall a song from a local band with a title of "Mr. Suabe". If you look at him, he looks pretty neat and clean that's why girls do chase after him. Who wouldn't want to get chased by girls right? Probably Mr. Suabe uses Kojie San for men that's why women swoon over him.
Anyway, you could check Kojie San Men's Club at http://www.facebook.com/KojiesanMensClub to know more how to preserve mankind and be the Mr. Suabe women would kill for.
Come next payday, I'll get my own set of Kojie San for men and start to look good, feel good and live up to reloading swabeh back.
