It's in his face.


Men with highly masculine faces were judged more likely to get into physical fights, challenge their bosses, sleep with many women, cheat on their partners and knowingly hit on someone else’s girlfriend. Those with more feminine faces were judged to be more likely to be good husbands, be great with children, work hard at their jobs even though they didn’t like them, and be emotionally supportive in long-term relationships.

Feminine men versus masculine men.

So this has established that men who look manly will be more bastardly. Awesome use of the chicken and the egg there – if people have these assumptions, they will treat masculine men accordingly; do men treated this way behave this way? If someone looks at your face and decides from it that you’re going to be “trouble”, they’re going to treat you cautiously, probably not nicely, which’ll make you more likely to be trouble. Excess testosterone does cause growth of the cheek and jaw bones, but it also weakens the immune system, so only “healthy individuals with high quality immune systems can afford to produce the hormones required to produce masculine characteristics.”

Handsome individuals combine the characteristics of both feminity and masculinity – full lips and full jaws, big eyes and high cheekbones. Women tend to select masculine men at their peak fertility and feminine men at other times – so we should expect masculine men to be single as the years run on.

Actually, shit, why am I writing this? It’s bollocksing 7.30 on Friday night. Gah. Home!

There are few harder things in life than introducing yourself, especially in print where mellifluous nuance can turn to indulgent wankery. So. I am definitely a 'writer'. You could also call me an 'artist'. I could probably put the words 'designer' and 'consultant' here too, but they feel crass.
