I'm not sure what you mean exactly, but if you mean male protagonists that show their feminine side, I can list many sensitive male protagonists dating back 50 years or more. Holden Caulfield, call your office.

Lol. Holden was absolutely not a role model, and the whole point of the book was to show he was kind of shit and needed to grow up.

Lest anyone try to read between the lines and attribute all kinds of crap to me, I believe all people should be treated with respect. I don't care for exploitive media, but i also think we can easily err in over emphasizing its effect on behavior. I don't think most media makes us shoot or rape each other, and I think most of us can tell the difference between fantasy and reality.

It's more subtle than that. It's the accumulation of cultural ideas and attitudes expressed in media that get reinforced. And yes, over time this does affect you.
