"Not that there's [almost] anything wrong with that..."

It has been a long time since America has embraced the hairy chested man,
and I think that's because of the feminine ideal has not wanted such manly implications, and American men have signed onto the feminist agenda for male looks. But I think it is also because gay men have had a larger impact on standards of male beauty. -- The Truth About Hairy Chested Men - Cobb

Let's see...in the fashion world, the male designer is...gay.
Stylist on shoot? Gay.
Hair and makeup artist? Gay.
Photographer? Often gay.
Many a male model? Gay.

Just where does Cobb come off saying gays have any influence in how the 'ideal man' is portrayed??

To Obama's credit, he embraces the hairy chested man. So what if it's the First Lady.

And for the red-blooded American woman, this is a sorry state of affairs, indeed.

I suspect the proliferation of the pill probably has something to do with it, as well. Women under the influence of pregnancy hormones tend to prefer their men non-threatening.
