MACHEESMO Factor[edit]

0. I don't eat hot dogs. Tyrannis (talk) 14:39, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

0. I cook dinner and clean the house even though I'm married. Bondurant (talk) 15:49, 17 June 2010 (UTC)


I can't help but notice the large number of Americans and the suspiciously low number of Europeans in this list. Is this because being European is by itself a symptom of low machismo?

To balance things could I ask that an M rating be given to the following: Mr A Hitler, Attila the Hun (OK - maybe not European exactly) Alexander the Great, Mr C Darwin and Caligula. On the other hand is being dead by itself an indication of low machismo? In which case are these excluded on the basis of simultaneously dead and European?--BobSpring is sprung! 19:45, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Europeans, by default, have a rating of O. You have to be American to have Machismo. Ex-Troll Cheerleader (talk) 20:42, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Actually it's interesting that you should ask about them. The word "machismo" comes from Spanish and its meaning in peninsular Spanish (I don't know about South American) is something close to "sexism" or "male chauvinism". A definition here reads:
  • Actitud y comportamiento de quien discrimina o minusvalora a las mujeres por considerarlas inferiores respecto de los hombres.
Which I would translate as: "Attitude and actions of those who discriminate against and underestimate (or perhaps "look down on") women because they consider women to be inferior to men."
Our friends at CP are probably correct when they say that they have a substantial quantity of this attribute.--BobSpring is sprung! 18:13, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

Using Linux makes one lack Machismo?[edit]

If so, then is there any way to tell what OS (or range of OSes) these guys are using from here? K61824Monitoring virgin birth experiment 06:51, 19 October 2010 (UTC)

Windows ME. Apple is hippies(and is not very good for servers anyway, Apple uses RedHat) of course, OSS OSs are Communism! so no.The site itself may be on an OSS. Hold on... Yup, they are on either a Linux or BSD server. I wonder if they know? The domain was registered 28/8/06 and expires in 2015. Also, his name adress and email are given... as is the mans phone number. Tyrannis (talk) 17:30, 19 October 2010 (UTC)
Man, if you can put up where can one look up such info (as in which OS they use to host CP) it would almost surely break irony meter everywhere. ThiehWhat is going on? 05:07, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

Machismo as a bad thing according to latinamerican fundagelicals[edit]

I find it strange that conservative leader ass schlafly uses machismo as a good term. I am latino (colombian, more exactly) and I've listened 2 or 3 times the latinamerican sucursals of Focus on the Family criticizing machismo (at least its most exagerated version: beating your wife and the like) while also defending more "accepted" sexist attitudes, like the ones prescribed by Paulus of Tarsus.

Now, it is very clear (at least for me) that many "machismo" attitudes would be unacceptable for Ass Schlafly. Moreover, I think this guy doesn't have the guts to be a real latinamerican "macho". Heck... even I (a pussy mennonite peacemonger) could be 1788888 points above Sclafly level of "machismo" (though not as Chuck Norris; we know that is imposible)

It's wrong[edit]

According to my calculations, my Machismo level should be zero, but it says one. — Unsigned, by: Mectrixctic / talk / contribs 03:51, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

You're misusing this word[edit]

Why are you using a spanish word? it makes no sense, I've never seen anyone using this word before, anyway Machismo means sexism, I think the word that you wanted is Masculinity or Manliness, I know that spanish speakers use the word "macho" meaning 'manly' or simply 'man', but for manliness it would be masculinidad, not machismo, Machismo would be a more radical approach of "masculinity" resulting in misogyny. Someone correct me please if I'm wrong, I'm not an expert in spanish language or latinamerican culture. Lalumierebleue (talk) 03:22, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

No, you are wrong. It means "exhilarating sense of power or strength". Stop being such a liberal panty-waist. Acei9 03:32, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

Go read the dictionary again, it may be a sense of power, but this sense leads to male dominance over females, female submission, which is but misogyny, manliness has nothing to do with misogyny, I don't know if it's normal among hispanic people but where I come from sexism is a serious and repulsive issue. If You knew me You would know that I'm not liberal in the least Lalumierebleue (talk) 04:07, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

Have you debated ShockofGod on the 15 Questions for evolutionists yet? Acei9 04:08, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
Blue Light, Try this from Random House
a strong or exaggerated sense of manliness; an assumptive attitude that virility, courage, strength, and entitlement to dominate are attributes or concomitants of masculinity.

How did this happen?[edit]

I was reading the page, and I noticed MY OWN username "machismo level 1" header. I mean, I'm fine with that, but why was I, of all people, singled out for this? Is this some sort of initiation for new editors? Because if so, I'm okay with that. But still! Alright, I see what this is. Never mind!

About the meaning of "Hembrismo"[edit]

As a latino american, I spend a portion of my time sepeaking spanish. I want to point that you got the meaning and use of "Hembrismo" wrong, mainly because the paragraph derives it's meaning from the particular meaning of "Machismo" that conservapedia seems to use. "Hembrismo" isn't about having feminine characteristics. It's misandry, in the same way that we say "Machismo" to refer to misogyny. A common chat between a feminist and a person who doesnt know about the movement, at least in Argentina, goes like this "I'm not a Feminist, because it's like Machismo but for women" "No, mom, that's Hembrismo, Feminism is about equality. Because patriarchy opresses both sexes and so on, and so on..." So "Hembrismo", has a lot of implications, and it is comonly used in the spanish language, to difrentiate feminism from a stereotype.
