草食系男子

What is your image about Japanese men?

Japanese men are manly?

Japanese men are bossy?

Japanese men are active and aggressive?

Yes, maybe like my father’s generation, you still can see  very manly and bossy men, but not anymore in young generation.

Such men are called “草食系男子(そうしょくけいだんし = soushokukeidanshi)  “

草食系男子 is friendly, home-oriented, likes to go out with his parents, not aggressive toward women, love and marriage  and well-groomed looks.

草食系男子 is likely to be in his 20s to 30s, favors cosmetics over deluxe cars and enjoys eating sweets with his parents at home rather than treating his girlfriend to fancy eateries.

On the other hand, women who are more aggressive at work, in the marriage, and when having a relationship are called “肉食系女子”
