Some may doubt the continuing progress towards equality of the sexes.<br><br>
But I have progress to report!<br><br>
After decades of women's magazines setting unrealistic expectations for women, I'm happy to report that <a href="http://uk.askmen.com/dating/curtsmith_500/561_the-six-sixes.html" target="_blank">Ask Men</a> has created unrealistic expectations for men.<br><br>
(In related news, why do half the images on Ask Men look like they could double as ads for a porn site?)

Well, that is predictable stereotyping of women's expectations isn't it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Apart from the performance thing, because even the least shallow of women are going to expect that from me unless they are looking for an asexual relationship.

ARRRGGGHHHHH. Stuff like this annoys and angers me. Subjecting men to the same bullsh*t that women are subjected to isn't progress!

I know someone from this board who I think has been basing their life on the advice in that magazine.

This sounds like the bullsh*t you'd read in Cosmo.<br><br>
Trust me guys: Any woman who is worth a damn won't care about any of those things. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I haven't picked up a woman's magazine in a while but I feel like this is even worse. It hates on women as much as men.<br><br>
I am terrified of anyone who thinks a cervix battering dick is the way to my heart.

Exactly. Does anyone actually <i>like</i> having to be incredibly careful to avoid ending up in horrible pain?<br>
And frankly, guys who are more than three or four inches taller than me make me feel like a child, and I hate that.<br><br>
The one good thing about an article like this: It's hard to keep in mind that the "what men want" stereotypes are not accurate because men vary in what they like, and this helps prove it by turning it around. I'm sure that wasn't the author's intention though.

I was flipping through one of my sister's copies, and the "advice" is very similar. It's all about impossible, shallow standards. And like this article, it's just as insulting to men as it is to women <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> It's especially terrifying to read the "what real men want" sections, because it's advice and tips for women from men who actually buy into the bullsh*t.<br><br>
And yes to the second part. I don't need a ramming rod to be "satisfied".

I find it fascinating that this was written by a woman.<br><br>
Also, bf fits into none of those categories (except one, I'll let you guess <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"> ) and we're coming up on six years; so obviously we're the exception, not the rule. Right? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:">

So the 7 billion people in the world, all of whom have fathers that apparently got laid at some point despite not meeting most of these standards, must be figments of my imagination :/

If this were legit, I'd be ****ing doomed. Except for the height.

It could be worse.<br><br>
I once got a collection of books that included some romance novels in them. Being bored, I paged through them. The mainstream ones were bad enough (<i>if I love him enough, I can change him</i>), but the historical romance ones? <a href="http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RapeIsLove" target="_blank">OMG</a>! (Warning, possibly triggering.)<br><br>
Ugh. And this was written by women for women?
