effeminate men are straighter than macho men:

semi-serious about this WMG. women in general prefer "softer" guys (possibly unconsciously) because they'll help raise kids better.

men who are "manly" (i.e. rough, tough, gruff type of guys) aren't so much doing this to impress women, but to intimidate other men, at least on an instinctive level.

so, in short, effeminate guys are attempting to attract the ladies. macho men are attempting to scare off guys. in terms of priorities, it seems that the effeminate ones are "straight"-er.

Isn't women prefer softer guys as dads but prefer macho men as gene spreaders? I.E. a woman will fuck a macho man for his baby and then raise it with a softie.
Your gonna go far kid...
Another theory: The more macho a man, the more he has to hide about his sexuality, yes?
^I don't think so. There have been some pretty tough gay guys.

I look tough, but I'm a big softie.

What about effiminately macho men?

I agree with you there.

It would also explain why women love Bishōnen so damn much.

^No. No it would not. But it would explain why Bishōnen are so common.
I planned that all along, Fan. -Kinkajou

Atypical masculinity.
Women on birth control (pills) prefer "softer" men compared to women not on birth control. Birth control pills simulate pregnancy. Pregnancy means a woman doesn't need a mate for genetic purposes. Think on it.

In my experience, women say they want a sensitive guy, but get with a jerk instead, then complain about it. They also tend to grow out of wanting a skinny girly-boy in girls jeans after a while (late teens usually) and suddenly start getting with larger guys that actually have body hair.

Some effeminate men are straighter than macho men. Some macho men are straighter than effeminate men.

I don't see a macho man who does macho things for fear of been seen as less straight. Sure, he may do it because he is not as straight, but he may just be straight and worried about not been seen that way. And you can pretty much invert that, flip it, rotate it or tessalate it and it'll still be true. Humans are complicated everyone is messed up in their own way.

I read something once that the reason effeminate men rake in females like candy is because of the popularity of the birth control pill and how it effects a woman's hormones.

@Sir Psycho I think women like handsome guys more than Bishonen on average.

Oh shit I just noticed how old this topic bad.
