Men--the New Women--Alert By Debbie Schlussel
On this site, we've been following--with dismay--the ever increasing feminization of men in America. Two items, this week, are part of the continuing crisis:
* USA Today's Sports Section has been running full-page ads, like the one on page 6C on Tuesday, for L'oreal's new men's beauty line, called, "Men's Expert."
The products sound like they are for women. I find it a bit odd for any man to use "Circle Eraser Anti-Dark Circle Eye Moisturizer," or "Stop Lines Anti-Lines Moisturizer," or "Vita Lift Anti-Wrinkle and Firming Moisturizer"--all of which are part of L'Oreal's new line for women . . . I mean, "men." If "Vita Lift" sounds familiar, that's because "Vita Lift" started out as a L'Oreal Women's product and still is one.
L'Oreal for "Men" Invades the Sports Pages Then, there is the "Power Buff Anti-Roughness Exfoliator." Hello . . . men are supposed to be rough. No man should ever use exfoliator--unless his favorite song is by "The Weathergirls."
They try to make this stuff sound masculine by calling it "the Winning Team." Maybe what they really mean is, "Play for the OTHER team." This goop is anything but masculine. Somebody get this stuff off my USA Today Sports section. PLEASE.
And don't go to the L'Oreal men's website, unless you want to hear bad, effeminate Yanni-style music and see gay models. It's no coincidence that L'Oreal is FRENCH.
Cole & Dylan Sprouse: New Girlie-Boy Version of the Olsen Twins * Then, there are the Olsen Twins. The greedy gazillionaire girls are not satisfied with their gazillions--which apparently are not enough. So, to make even more, the've hired a new, younger set of girl twins to replace them as the spokesmodels of their Dualstar company. Except that the girl twins are really boys. They just look like girls. And it's by design.
The Olsen Twins told the Wall Street Journal that these girlie-boy twins will be marketing male beauty products for young boys like the ones L'Oreal is shoving onto men's sports pages. The male beauty industry for girlie-men is now cradle to grave.
Somebody stop them.

No real man would ever fall for this crap. What is this world coming to?
Question. What happens when a masculine, manly man falls in love with a feminine, girly girl?
Answer. He applies to law school.
Power Buff Anti-Roughness Exfoliator
If you have even a hint of roughness left, this product will undoubtedly exfoliate it.
So do I! It's got my testicles in it!
It's called recruiting.
We used to be told to lock up our daughters.
Your daughters will love you if someone out there is still raising masculine men.
Along with any heterosexual tendencies.
"One application and guaranteed you'll be come a reciever!"
"Just not a football one."
does anyone remember a few years ago when they started talking about makeup for men?? i'm not kidding.
The only mud pack I'd consider using is the one I unintentionally got diving face first into a big patch of it while playing goal yesterday.
OK, I'm not pretty. But at least no lady will come to my loo and snicker at what I've got in the medicine cabinet.
The Plumbers' Friend.
Yeah, the same people that told me when I was 17 that at some point in my life I would be attracted to men, or that 10% of the population was homosexual.
