Well, Damn. Muscular Men Make Bad Boyfriends?

This just in, apparently muscular men make bad boyfriends. Hot off the press from the University of Westminster, the study’s found the more muscular the man, the more likely he is to be sexist and even hostile to women.

Maybe if we just don’t talk? I could live with that arrangement.

The reasoning for it (researcher’s words here, not mine, don’t shoot the messenger) is apparently men who are sexist also work on being muscly, because it fits their idea of what a “real man” looks like.

Now, they only surveyed 327 British men, so I’m hopeful it’s all a big misunderstanding. And I, for one, am not going to stop daydreaming about muscular men.

Besides, this is what we have book boyfriends for. So they can be the perfect man, reality be damned 😉

Anyone else come across this problem with muscular but sexist men? I’ve never noticed, but maybe I was too busy staring…

  1. Thank you. A smile to start my day. Never dated a man like that so no experience. Maybe it’s self centred rather than sexist as you need a lot of dedication to achieve a body like that. The me is more Importent than the you perhaps. Intriguing to unpick the issues. More interesting to be sexist and leer at that body!

      1. Ha, I wish! You’d be surprised how quickly some of those non-muscular, nerdy, “nice” guys turn out to be…jerks. I guess they’re still just men 🙂
