Masculinity Tropes
One of many reasons that fiction thinks "Testosterone" means "Awesome".

"Iím not on board with this modern trend of telling men that they should act less like men. I dream of a world where the beer is cheap and plentiful, violence can still be an acceptable solution to lifeís problems"

Tropes about what is "macho", being a "real man", and the various cultural expectations of what is and isn't masculine, and even things that are considered emasculating.

Compare Tomboy.

Contrast Bishōnen, Femininity Tropes.

Not to be confused with The Real Man.
