That`s bollocks. You`ve taken men from different walks of life. For a fair comparison it should`ve been soldiers then and now and fags then and now.

The spiked helmets are ww1 era, and yeah its (the post) about right. Each of the epochs has its men and those that are `men` like. War and strife causes the ones on the left, ease and boredom, the right side.
Don`t worry fellas, your time is close. Think Vienna 1920s.......it ends and starts over again.

This is a pictoral version of when granpa gets into the gin and starts on the whole "what we need is another war" rant.

"toughen `em up, make men outta them" he says.
"give `em some direction" he drawls.
"short hair cuts and discipline, that`s what society needs" he slurs.
"why isn`t anyone listening?" he moans.

Nostalgia tainted hindsight has a lot to answer for...
Besides.
Theres not much that would look tough standing next to a mob of hardened soldiers from various world wars.
Well, cavemen obviously, but not much else.

Hey guess what, in the 20`s drag acts were one of the most popular forms of entertainment. Male performers, as most of the "men now" are, were commonly in makeup, just like they are now.

To say that the "men now" is representative in comparison to the "men then" is an insult to the soldiers of our generation.

The men on the left are called `the greatest generation` for a reason. They built this country. We`ve all helped squander what they built for us.

There were nancy boy little waifs back then, too. Nobody wanted to take their picture. Cameras weren`t as readily available, and people had the decency to be ashamed to act bizarre in public.

There are still soldiers now. I was one. They aren`t very far removed, as a group, from what soldiers back then were. Compare apples to apples, not to oranges. Otherwise, you are full of fail and destined for ridicule.

This is stupid. Soldiers vs. people who follow slightly outlandish fashion trends. Hmmm... Nothing to do with "Then" or "Now" - might as well use modern soldiers and some 1940s cross dressers and you could make the same claim in reverse.

I agree with comparing soldiers to soldiers and pansies to pansies. Though, if you were to compare jocks to jocks, you`d get the douches up top on the current side.

The men on the left are all military soldiers. We have military soldiers today. They are very manly.

In World War II times, there was also plenty of limp wristed sissy boys. They were called "pansies" and they stayed home from the war because, even today, they are not allowed to serve in the armed forces.
How about comparing soldiers to soldiers, or pansies to pansies?

Everyone knows that the roles of Male and Female were well defined when we were hunter/gatherers. This image lends credence to my observation of the continual pussification of human kind.

Me thinks the `Men Then` CAUSED the `Men Now`. Think about it, all that time spent in the trenches with nothing but your fellow man. I reckon a few of em just said "drat it, I love you man. When this is over, let`s wear pastels."

Back then the men that were not manly were simply forced to pretend they were. How is that better? I for one and glad we`re not so strict about the definition of manly anymore. And what, you think there was no such thing as a guy dressed as a woman back then? You`ve a lot to learn.

I`ve seen this before. This is comparing soldiers to hipster non-nice individuals. If you want to be fair compare like to like... aka soldiers to soldiers.

Its not the image of Men then and the image of Men now. Men now cant take any hardship from life, and just break over the tiniest of things. The men of old were men because they had to do what they did. Life wasn`t good enough to go around fussing and whimpering about their self definition. It was: Fight for your country as a soldier for patriotic -not financial necessity. A lot has changed since; feminism, equal opportunities, conscription, you name it. A man isn`t allowed to be a man anymore in this day and age because of special interest groups. Thus we live in a hypocritical society.

Oh man this picture which is clearly intended to be a joke and not actually totally serious is offensive to me because I can point out the major flaw that it`s comparing soldiers to mac geeks. I`m offended because I can`t find any humor in this picture I better explain why the picture is incorrect even though everyone before me already did because it`s really obvious!

guess what? There have been effeminate men since the dawn of time, they just chose to portray them less often in the media... and until recently they weren`t welcome to die for their country in the military. dumb post.

Easy case to make. Try comparing soldiers to soldiers or throw a few flagrant pop stars from the 60`s in the left picture

for anyone who`s interested, the guy in the bottom left of the "men then" section, is Major Richard Winters, who was the CO of Easy company during the war, whose exploits are dramatised in `Band of Brothers`

I Love how users on Iambored like to point out the ""minority"" of a group (in this case men). On top of that, they completely (and intentionally) not post something that goes against their theory.

The thing of it is is that the men "then" really wanted to look like the men "now", but were afraid to do so.
