Found this article via today's Bleat:

As America comes to terms with our diminished omnipotence in the wake of 9/11, the Iraq War and President Bush's international unpopularity, we're growing weary of Teflon-coated John Wayne stereotypes of masculinity.

Says you, maybe. As for me, I stand by my original assessment of what is hot. And for me, it's definitely still alpha males.

John Wayne is not a stereotype; he's an archetype.
And a hot one at that.

I just read your HOT post. I just about died laughing. I definitely gotta agree with you. After long periods of separation from the husband, almost every guy has the potential to be HOT. I love it when my husband send me pics of him with his guns and gear and a cigar hanging out of his mouth. That is definitely HOT.

I SO agree with you! Dh was in the Army when we were dating, and Good Gravy did he look good in a pair of BDUs! What is it about BDUs that makes a man's butt look SO good? Give me a man swinging a hammer or shooting a gun any day of the week over some fancy-pants GQ guy.

bunchkin - "swinging a hammer" . . . you too? You think that pic of Chuck Z. (from my position . . . on the way) looks HOT swinging that hammer?!? I thought I was the only one! Well maybe his wife thinks he looks HOT there too. ;) LOL! What can I say.

And yes, my husband knows about what I think. he shakes his head and rolls his eyes (or at least I imagine he does).

We now have this running joke in our house because I just discovered John Cena. Apparently he's now my "wrestler boyfriend." And my husband was mortified last night when I didn't rush to agree with him when he said he could easily kick Sylvester Stallone's butt. He's mad I thought it might actually be a real fight! Ha.

I recently met a friend of Slyvester Stallone...I guess the dude is like my height, or shorter!!
I might be able to kick his ass.

I always said the five "C"s that women find irresistable are confidence, competence, courage, compassion, and comedy. As a man if you have these five traits, there's not a woman alive that you can't charm.
