Default Why can't guys admit when other guys are sexy?

When other guys are secksy?

I, and bunch of friends I know accept when there are sexy guys.

But almost every other guy I know will only go as far as handsome. And only the old guys go that far.

For example I think that Bruce Campbell is secksay guy. I would love to have his voice.

Am I sexually aroused on by him? No.

But he is a sexy guy.

Thoughts?

Hahahaha.

Well so much for intellegent answers
Thanks for proving my point. :

As I said I don't 'like' them. But I can admit when a guy is sexy.

I think it's a combo of
A) Men not wanting to seem homosexual

B) The natural male instinct to not admit a man is more attractive to the opposite sex. Instincts tell us that we are admiting defeat if we do, and that we aren't the top of the pack, so to speak.

I can admit other men are sexy, not to me, I dont find them sexy, but I know that females will, and so I know thta he must be sexy... IMO I dont think Id thik another guy was sexy without seeing some form of proof...

Its because a GIANT stigma with Homosexuality has come about now, the Gays try and be more gay, and the straights try to abolish all forms of evidence to suggest they may not be pure straight (that is, not like anotehr guy, even as a friend becasue it MAY be seen as gay)

Easy. Because no other men are sexy. Only Khanaris.


In all seriousness, I think it is something deeply rooted in our psychology. Men have to compete with each other for women for reproduction. Women technically don't, since one male may share his genetic material with many females in a short span of time. Polygamy can be stable, but polyandry is very difficult to maintain. So for a man to recognize another man as sexually attractive, he has to consider a fairly fundamental question about his own worth as a member of the species. It isn't "Is that man sexy?", but rather "Is that man sexier than me?". "Is that man a threat to my reproductive options?". Coupled with the tacit homophobia present in most men (some of which is cultural, some of which may be instinctive), you end up with guys who are not willing to judge other men based on their attractiveness.

Yay! I've crossed the instinctive barrier then!

Although, still when I talk to guys about it they give me strange looks. :P

I can admit men are attractive... but I'm guessing you're referring to purely straight people, so I don't count. :

The one thing I can't do, however, is admit women are right.

Could it not also illustrate that straight men have a narrower spectrum of what is acceptable social behavior, then straight women do?

Don't tell me that you fell for the MTV lie?
The MTV lie is that people who rebel against tradition are thnking for themselves, while those who follow tradition are just sheep who do not think.
It is, of course, completely untrue. The decision to follow tradition is just as much an exercize of free will as is the decision to depart from it.

That is correct, but the question related to why our spectrum might be narrower. You are describing the issue itself, not its causes.
