Erinis quotes

“It is not possible for a man to be elegant without a touch of femininity.”-  Vivienne Westwood.

「一絲陰柔氣息都沒有的男人,是不可能優雅的。」-薇薇安魏斯伍德

When I was younger, I admired guys who appeared tall, masculine, broad-  shouldered, self-confident and tough. I adored athletes who had my ideal of all  that was manly.

    For 40 % you are: You are mostly masculine. You like monster trucks, loud music, lots of growling, and muscle shirts. You refuse to show emotion, because that would entail weakness. You resort to force when someone insults your massive ego. You fear homosexuals and go to great lengths to let everyone know that you would never do something so gross. You refuse to go to the ballet with your girlfriend because you fear men in tight pants.

    For 40 % you are: You are a blend of both the masculine and the feminine, yet you tend to be more manly most of the time. You know how to get in fist fights and keep a woman in her rightful place. You probably eat a lot of meat and try to grow a beard. You watch wrestling on T.V. without even stopping to consider its emotional ramifications.

    For 50 % you are: You are oh-so-obviously a woman (or at least a woman at heart). You weep during romantic movies, want to have lots of babies, upset your boyfriend with lots of emotional outbursts, and love to cook and clean while your man is at work. Yes, all women love to cook and clean. That is just how they were made.

      I think that men who are masculine, humorous, positive and good at sports are really attractive for me, and I can depend on him whenever I face challenges.

    For 40 % you are: You are a blend of masculine and feminine, yet you lean more toward the girly side. You probably weep bullets during romantic movies, but you’re not afraid to be confrontational or to join the workforce! You are probably a modern woman, and believe that woman should be able to have such privileges as working outside the home and being able to commit adultery without receiving a punishment of forty lashes from the government. You renegade, you!

    I think the result is odd…………I never watch wrestling on TV because i think it’s violent and it even makes me feel disgusting ==
    And i prefer eating vegetable to eating meat, lol

    I think the result is weird because I don’t love to cook and I am not that girlish. Getting this result maybe is because I am emotional and I cry often :目

    Yes, I love eating beef! But, I don’t like watching wrestling on TV. Truely, I think I have racial and sensitive traits.
