We live in a more advanced and accepting world than before. People are allowed more freedom in terms of their sexual preferences and genders. A lot more men choose to dress and act in a more feminine manner as a reason for their sexual orientation. But if you are a straight male, and want to attract beautiful women, you cannot be doing or wearing things that make you look feminine. Women are naturally attracted to dominant and alpha males. The men that assert power and influence.
Men do feminine things without even realizing it but women do notice. If you get sharp and plucked eyebrows from the salon, women will not be sexually attracted to you but will see you more as a friend with whom they gossip about boys, nails and pretty dresses.
