Well, it's usually mostly about those male characters having a very misguided idea of what masculinity is, trying to be more "manly" through raw strength and brutish behaviour.

Depends on the circumstance, but overall it is a valid message: trying too hard to fulfull societal standards will only end in failure.

because usually when this happens they turn into complete assholes thinking that only raw strength makes you manly. You can become masculine without being a piece of shit.

I think the question OP is trying to raise is why the message of "be a man" is never portrayed in a positive light in cartoons. Like why is the moral of the episode "get a part-time job so you can save your own money and buy a used car, maybe help around the house a bit more"?

Gran Torino did a fucking awesome job with that. Why don't cartoons try it sometime?

Let me guess: You used to be one of those obnoxious liberals who never shut up about how much they hated religion or whatever. Then, at some point, you decided to switch sides and now you still do the same shit, except you go around making sure everyone knows how much you hate liberals instead of conservatives. Something like that?

Similar example.

Gravity Falls season 2, ep 16.

Dipper tries to get over Wendy by flirting with girls he meets at tourist attractions all over the state. Candy develops a crush on him (because of the newfound confidence he got by chatting up strangers) and contrives to get Dipper to ask her on a date(?). Suddenly all the other girls Dipper has been flirting with show up and demand to know why he's been flirting with all of them ("I thought what we had was special!", "You said you really liked me!", etc). Candy gets her feelings royally hurt and basically calls Dipper an asshole before storming off. After they defeat the monster with "GRL POWR", Dipper gives Candy an apology note saying he was stupid and he's really sorry.

SORRY FOR WHAT?! What the fuck did Dipper do?! He TALKED to girls?! He SAID he was going to call them?! Jesus fucking Christ, kids, don't even think about striking up a friendly conversation with a woman unless you're ready to forsake all further contact with females for the rest of your week. What the hell is this episode teaching young boys about interacting with women?

That's an euphemistic way of confessing you're an awful person

Generally the moral of those stories is that there's more to being a man than superficial shit like working out. Confidence and strength of character are both more what makes someone a man. While the two can overlap, simply working out doesn't excuse someone for having a poor character. You can be a regular /fit/izen and still be a fucking pussy.

>>77750681

>>77750888

I'm using Dipper as the example because he's who the younger, more impressionable boys watching will emulate.

I'm also using him because FUCKING WHAT DID HE DO THAT WAS WRONG? Stan's motives were kinda tainted by skeeze.

>>77751058
You shouldn't play around with people's feelings like that in order to boost your own confidence.
>>
>>77750352
It's just a variation on the "just bee urself" storyline. You see it with other kinds as well, like trying to become popular, becoming girlier, joining a frat/club, trying to be a suave lady's man, devoting all your time into being the best at some game, etc.
>>
>>77751091
How did he ever play with their feelings? He was just talking to them about stuff he thought was cool, places he'd been to, stuff the girls were into, you know human stuff. Candy got her expectations all out of whack. If you swapped the genders, Candy would be a "nice guy" and Dipper would be a "strong, independent female who's confident enough to play the field."
>>
>>77751122
Getting phone numbers/emails without ever actually intending on contacting them again is a dick move that gets their hopes up. Candy was being a crazy bitch, though, but Dipper didn't help by just not saying no to the "date."

Bullshit. He wasn't under any serious obligation to reach out to them via email or phone ever again. If you think otherwise, you're thinking like a nice guy. "H-HEY I WENT OUT OF MY WAY TO CHAT WITH YOU IN LINE AT THE BANK SO WHY AREN'T YOU AGREEING TO BE MY GIRLFRIEND HUH OH I GET IT IT'S BECAUSE YOU LIKE ASSHOLES HUH."

Plus it's not like those girls were losing out in that interaction. They were also learning how to talk to strangers and make connections. But again, if Dipper had given any of them HIS contact info and they didn't follow through, we wouldn't be talking about this. Why is the male obligated to resign himself to monogamous social interactions?
>>
>>77751170
>but Dipper didn't help by just not saying no to the "date."
So you're saying that Candy isn't responsible for her own emotions and that she needs a man to take that into account before interacting with her?

Why can't women take responsibility for their own emotional reactions?
>>
>>77751291
>Why is the male obligated to resign himself to monogamous social interactions?
Because males cannot give birth, so females are the more valuable and worth supporting. Same why it's lions who have big fancy manes and male birds who have the colorful plummage.

>>77751354
>dragging it out
No idea why you're describing it that way. Dipper is a young man, eager for life experience so when an opportunity for social interaction presented itself, yeah he wanted to see how things would play out. Is that so wrong? Is he an asshole for wanting to live his own life? Candy was wrong to get assblasted over...over...wait what the hell was she even upset over again? That Dipper was "talking" to other girls? That's insane. It would be insane even if they were dating.
>>
>>77751355
Just chat and leave, no one gets pissy over that. You don't have to raise anyone's hopes for future interaction by asking for contact info if you don't want to talk to them later, that's always been a way of saying "I'll contact you later to set up date."
>>
>>77751355
It's not hard to be social and friendly with girls without playing with their emotions. Dipper played their emotions, knew it, but didn't stop. Ask out the girl you like on a date and friend zone the rest. It's not hard.

Sometimes men should be allowed to be men. As barbaric and primal as it sounds it's as necessary as masturbating. Men need to be who they are by nature, not by going out and trying to fuck anything with a hole but reassuring their ego and releasing their aggression.

I have to wonder why working out is considered superficial? Has anyone who has ever made these shitty 'lessons' ever stopped to consider that saying enjoying sports and being in shape actively destroys lives?

How DARE you care about your physical health and have confidence! You should be lazy and let yourself slowly decline in to heavy depression as your body stops being able to operate at peak condition. How dare you form healthy habits early in life rather than waiting till you are an adult to regret being lazy when it's too late to do anything about it?

If you are in shape then you are one of those EVIL WHITE GUY MEAT HEADS!

I mean holy shit. Way to sabotage someone's fucking future because you needed to feel good about yourself by tearing someone down who was trying to improve their lot. That's what's superficial here.

I agree with this. As much as I like the push to release genders of their stereotypes, I think it's gone the other way where people who like and identify with those stereotypes are demonized and shunned. If a girl wants to be a girly-girl, fucking let her. If a guy wants to be a manly-man, fucking let him. The whole idea is to let people be who they want to be, right? Not to shift the paradigm to make a different part of society feel uncomfortable and disillusioned.

Okay fine. I've just grown tired of people subtly tearing me down lately. I've recently realized how many of these 'beautiful ideals' are really just methods of telling you not to strive or achieve or make yourself in to someone you could be happy looking in the mirror at.

If that's what she wants, then let her. Like I said, the point is to let people be whoever they want to be, because it doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things. If you want to date a manly-man woman, then you can date her. If not, she'll find somebody else.

/co/, we really need to have a talk about the importance of 'small talk' one of these days. This kind of sedate, mid-level interaction may seem petty, but it's rather important for deeper underlying social reasons. Truly caring about the other person isn't what it's about.

Isn't that a catch 22 you've built yourself there, champ?

But from what you've said, this seems like every conversation is that way to you.

Thus I say catch 22. There's no way for anyone to win in your book. You've built a situation where the only way to successfully socialize with you is to ignore you in all circumstances. Meaning you might as well not exist and it wouldn't make a difference.

>>77752949
That's the problem though, isn't it? Everything is centered around you and you only. Only you have value, according to you. So everyone should only talk about what interests you.

I admit, you were right. The 'be yourself' advice really didn't work out for you because you're just an asshole.

That said, BE YOURSELF and YOUR FRIENDS SHOULD ACCEPT YOU FOR YOU is horse shit in a general sense. Society is built on a foundation of giving a little ground till everyone has a little space of their own. People compromise a bit for you and you do the same in return. Everyone gets a turn and a chance to do what they like most. I could also throw in some shit about broadening horizons and enjoying mutual company for the sake of it, but you get the point.
>>
>>77753010
And some people fly into blind rages. You make it sound as if autistic reactions are the worst thing a neurotypical person would have to deal with.

The idea that everyone should always treat you with 100% perfect consideration even if they're literally incapable of reading your body language is toxic as fuck. It's not actually a good reason to treat someone as subhuman and I wish people with that expectation were called out more often.
>>
>>77753124
You don't deny it, then?
>>
>>77753155
When they're talking to me? Yes, they should talking about something that's interesting to me. Same as if I wanted to talk to them, I'd talk about something they find interesting instead of trying to bore them to death. That's common courtesy.

>>77753183
Except the situation is more complicated than you're trying to make it. Sometimes you have to put up with what they want to chat about. Sometimes they should put up with what you want to chat about. Your way has no way of deciding when the topic should be about what, and frankly you don't sound like the type of person who would initiate a conversation either. So the scenario becomes..

They have to come up and chat to you about what you like chatting about. You will then go to chat to them about what they like, but you won't do that regardless. Meaning the only conversation that happens is one you personally deign acceptable.

You're a shitbag, but I'm not telling you anything you don't already know.

Not really. Most people are perfectly fine with who they are and don't have a mental illness that makes them want to go against their nature.

The problem is that these shows never show any sort of happy balance or compromise.

If a wimpy character becomes TOO BURLY and learns that there's more to life than leaving humanity behind, he goes back to being wimpy and nothing else. No lifting weights, no picking up sports, no going for jogs or whatever.

Yeah, you could say that stuff falls outside the scope of the story, but at the end of the day, it leaves it looking like a black-and-white dichotomy.

No it's not. There's literally nothing dickish about that in the real world.

You're not obligated to a date or a relationship just because of some flirting or an exchange of numbers, and that goes for girls and guys.

Any show starring a woman or is basically sold to women and has a lot of women on the cast.
I mean, name a series.

Being traditionally male, finding women attractive and taking steps to talk to them and not being down when they blow us off or being a thirsty pussy who'll eternally pine after her, being confident and not an easily manipulated punching bag.
That's bad.
Being a "nice guy" and easily manipulated wimp that they women choose is putting women in a position of power and men at a disadvantage. It's also leaving the vast majority of traditionally feminine women and men out in the cold in terms of stories.
Why? Cause creepy ass manipulative weird fucks snuck into that media and started brainfucking everyone.

Look at AT.
Little boys don't like that shit and little girls are skeeved out by it. That's all adults.

I wonder if it's a "men aren't all fun and games and they have a dark side" kind of deal?
Why not have a real treatment of how a boy would want to do something traditional masculine that she honestly doesn't understand and have her be supportive, or try to join him but screws up and he helps her or they come to an understanding and it's left at that.
Like..what if the geeky male friend actually wants to go out for the football team and he stops hanging out for a while and actually DOES make it. What if he actually starts talking to girls too?
Will the show take steps to enforce the status quo and demonize this change or will they create a new status quo.
Or will they push this story off on some character who's like the geeky male cast member.

When Aang was taught fire by that master fire bender in the swamps. They not only demonized his EBUL masculine behavior but, made sokka, you know the slightly traditionally male character the "hero" in that and said fire master lionized katarra the water bender for her healing and wanted that power.
Best part?
The show itself SPAT on that power and that whole message by turning it into an innately female thing and thus bad thing for a cheap gurl powah moment later.

It had nothing to do with gender, just fire as a destruction force and water as a life source.

Stop projecting.
