    Man Repelling:

    I can see it as a hobby…

    But why do so many women seem to choose it as a lifestyle, and then whine endlessly about the results?

    It's like wondering why your dog won't come near you after chasing him around the apartment with the vacuum cleaner for a couple of hours.

    Nothing wrong with the styles, they are cute and less revealing. Men just like too much skin and pretend that they don't. I love it.

  • Anonymous

    I don't get it. Women have so many cute choices when it comes with what to wear, why are you wearing fugly clothes.

    If this is man repelling…what would be man attracting? hmmm?

    I just found your blog through a link a commentor left on jezebel and I FREAKING LOVE IT.

    Dear Man Repeller girls

    Just thought I'd drop a line to let you know that thanks to stumbling across your blog all my coworkers think I'm a lunatic after I was left paralysed in fits of laughter for an entire day.

    I shared the love with my fellow man-repeller friend and this only further dwindled my concentration levels as I proceded to spend the entire day discussing our man repellent tendencies that explain why most likely, we're both still single.

    I was evidently fired.

    Not really, but I do have some catching up to do tomorrow.

    At the end of the day we came to one conclusion, articulated perfectly by my man repellent accomplice; "I'd rather trade my reproductive and codependant potential for a pair of those mui mui clogs anyday… so *sticks tongue out and blows* to all boys who have a problem with it!"

    Omg I totally understand this term. My boyfriend hates it when I wear harem pants and other types of clothes that I find fashionable. I still wear them when I'm not with him though :P or sometimes I just tell him to suck it up and let me have my style!

    I gone through the entire blog, and like half the clothes and hate half the clothes. I understand that clothes are a form of Art and that's cool. I also understand the marketing strategy for this blog(its working). Just don't ask me to pay for any of these fashions!

    Ps. I'm a hard core lone wolf biker, and one of the refreshing trends have been Safe motorcycle gear for women. Strong, well fitting, waterproof, colorful and comfortable. Can I even say 'inexpensive'.

    you are hilarious! i am coming back every day – love your blog and have an insight why my gold clogs went missing a couple of years ago

    • Bando

      Oh my gosh, you had gold clogs!  I am a man and I find that INCREDIBLY hot on a woman!

  • Greenwithgratitude

    Fabulous site! My second husband, god rest his soul, loved my wacky getups. He found me entertaining. I bought a jacket made from an afghan printed with huge yellow daisies and he proudly took a picture of me in it. Another man was so offended by just seeing me walk by that he sneered “Don’t tell me, your name is Daisy.” I just laughed at him. What a dink.

    • HusbandNo325Maybe

      Husbands by numbers? Guess that will help you keep track further down the line of husbands.

    • Martine

      I guess we know you aren’t repelling too successfully if you have numbered husbands…

      • Play Nice

        ahem, did you not read the “god rest his soul” It sounds like Green is a widow and her husband was a open-minded guy.

  • sonya

    A critical part of your man repelling is definitely wearing all those heels in your fantastic collection. Would love to know how you deal with the discomfort of shoes!! You have so many beautiful pairs and I can only imagine what kind of pangs your ankles, heels, and toes go through on the daily. Do you truck through the pain, use dr. scholl inserts, etc… tell me please!

  • Sufiya

    Puh-leazzze, anyone who REALLY, SERIOUSLY  wanted to ‘repel men” would wear BIRKENSTOCKS. Just google “Birkenstock fetish” and then “high heel fetish” and compare the numbers! See what I mean?

        But it’s true, women dressing wacky DOES put guys off quite a bit…funny how MEN dressing wacky doesn’t do the same for women! Else how would all those hip hoppers with those idiot getups of theirs (enormous pants falling down, crotches hanging around their knees, HUGE t shirts and hoodies) have all those women hanging around?

    Leah,

    My name is Beatriz Velasco and I work in publishing house call Plan B, in Mexico City. We do a publication named El Libro Amarillo, a style guide book (soytotalmentepalacio.com.mx/publicaciones), it has two editions every year, with 100,000 copies each.

    For our next edition, Fall/Winter 2012-13, we will publish an article about the most important blogs of fashion (according to MyHabit.com awards). So we want to talk about you.

    I was wondering if you could answer me some questions about your work. Also, sending a portrait to illustrate the report. The images must be in high resolution.

    We are really interested in publishing this. I hope you can help us.

    If you have any doubt, don’t hesitate to contact me. I’ll be glad to help.

    Regards,
    Beatriz

    I dont understand this. I’m a man and I thought a lot of this stuff was really cool and stylish. I would be more attracted to girls who wore this stuff, shows they have an individual personality. Shows she is engaging ans passionate. Not just mindlessly buying out the clearance rack at Macy’s or copying styles in red book. You guys should consider doing a fashion blog for men too, unique edgy cloth for men is even harder to find.

    Be careful, dont become too popular…guys might find this blog and specifically hit on girls that are wearing these clothes.

  • Susan

    What happens when men become attracted to “man repelling” fashions, sensing the repellant as a form of attraction? Would this “avant-garde revelation” become irrelevant?

  • Mimi McLeod

    Every now and again we need a bit of man-repelling. God bless my ‘hammer’ trousers, trainers, boyfriend blazers, oversized t-shirts etc etc. Don’t get me wrong, I do wear dresses and heels but I love to mix it up.

  • jiangyingzi

    As a man, the only things here that I find repellant are the bony-ass fashion models littering up the pages. Somebody give those girls a few plates of pasta and maybe some bacon double cheeseburgers.

    I hope nobody who comes to this site actually thinks men are worried about this kind of stuff. If you think this scene has ever occurred…

    (Two young DUDES are at a cocktail party at a trendy Manhattan loft. The first DUDE spots a beautiful YOUNG WOMAN sighing wistfully as she fails to eat anything from the hors d’oeuvre tray. He looks interested, but then his eyes pan down to her shoes and he shrieks in ghastly apoplexy.)

    DUDE 1: “Oh my GOD, I cannot BELIEVE that girl is wearing those fake fur lace-up mules! I was about to go talk to her until I saw…THAT.”

    DUDE 2: “How utterly horrid! But take heart! You may note, there in the corner, a winsome young lass wearing open toed Gina boots — Angelica if I’m not mistaken — and they match her tasteful Louis Vuitton bag! Paydirt, dude!”

    (The DUDES high five.)

    …you have been living in Wonderbread Land for entirely too long. It’s a scientific fact that 98% of the people who care about what you’re wearing are other women.

    • Dan

      Lol that made me laugh far more than it should have. however I fully agree. the outfits themselves arnt all that bad. in fact, I rather like that neon green thing on the top of the page. But the models who look skinnier than a microphone and the horsefaced creature that created this site? Yea, I’m sure they are quite skilled at repelling men.

      • El

        Wow, your hypocrisy is astounding.

    • Kirsten

      “I hope nobody who comes to this site actually thinks men are worried about this kind of stuff”–it’s cool that you’re standing up for non-shallowness of men (although nobody, male or female, would talk the way you described in your hypothetical convo) but I think the point of this site is that the people who come here don’t give a f*** what men think of their clothes. Just sayin’

      • jiangyingzi

        That’s the whole point of my hypothetical convo.

      • http://booradley2011.myopenid.com/ BooRadley

        Aw, you totally missed the point, Kirsten.

    • Martine

      I have to tell you that plenty of men like girls that look like fashion models just fine. I have several really thin, leggy friends, some of them actually are models. They don’t exactly repel when you go out with them. I actually see people staring at them in awe.

  • Jacob

    I feel that the writer of this blog is confused about what repels or attracts men.

  • girl1

    ahhahahhahaha I agree. Thank you for the early morning laughs.

  • Jim

    I just watched the video on Yahoo about this blog. There is only one piece of advice I could give. Wear what is you!

    However along with that statement you have to take the consequences of your actions. If you wear “Man Repellent clothes” then expect nothing more than 1 night stands (even if they last a couple months). When it comes to a lasting relationship (maybe marriage) men are still old fashion. They want their significant other to look appealing. The significant other does not have to be the best looking fashion model of the century but they do have to look as if they belong together. Who knows? Maybe the guy will join you in wearing Women Repellent clothes.

  • Trendwhorespotter

    Just another sheep-minded slave of gay fashion designers in denial, spinning it as “we’re such rebels.” all you have to do is look at any fashion rag and see the trend-whoriness of this mindset. Not an individualist in sight! Not to mention that men don’t care what you wear since they just want to take it off!

    I have one item of clothing that actually upsets my boyfriend: red, gold, silver, green and blue snakeskin flat boots from Irregular Choice. Most people stare at them with confused wonder, but he actually just can’t look at them. Haven’t worn them too much in the last three years…
    Funnily enough I wrote about how much he hates them a while back: http://mutatedmusings.wordpress.com/2011/06/09/why-i-love-ebay-more-than-my-boyfriend/

    • The Selk

      Honor, I fear most people – and you boyfriend – have a point. I can’t even follow the link to read your blog entry and see a picture of The Boot/s writ large as this tiny thumbnail causes me actual pain. I know it’s wrong but I fear & hate your boots, and I want to make them go away. Thanks for sharing though. Elk

  • Simon

    A question if I may…… what occurs when your repellent actions actually work in reverse? I mean, I’m completed taken by all of the above said garments.

  • George Eager

    I guess it all depends what the man is looking for, which usually is not involved with clothing, though I must admit to love at first sight with a girl in camo shorts and tank top at the demolition derby. But then, I knew she owned a bass boat which she’d gotten in her divorce settlement. Whoa, says I, she’s got it all!

  • AprilShowerz

    Ahahaha! I love this website, keep on keepin on. <3

  • Fancy Pants

    That’s hysterical. I totally agree… to all the women out there moaning and complaining about why they can’t find a man because you insist on those horrible crotch drops (among MANY other things), all I can say is: can’t help you if you can’t help yourself! Great blog, though.

    • http://booradley2011.myopenid.com/ BooRadley

      Unless you live in a fundamentalist Mormon community, are there really that many women out there “moaning and complaining” that they “can’t find a man?”

      • teagra ki

        Don’t think so, or at least if I have, they’re not wearing crotch drop pants or ‘man repelling’ garments, quite the opposite actually. I noticed the ones who have admirers and haters from both sexes are the ones who dress and act for themselves. How dare they ignore status quo? ;)

        • sueweil

          Agreed.

      • Kay kay

        Yes there are.

      • BaddaboomBaddabing

        Of course not, that’s why books like “He’s Just Not That Into You” were written.

      • George

        OF COURSE YES. About 43.3% of all women in the U.S. are single. Just looking at my friends and my colleagues (I work in the luxury fashion industry) and more than half of the them are single. They are all pretty and earn decent money though. Once they pass the page of 30 they complain more and more as it gets harder to get a man (to have a serious relationship with not just a one-night stand) with age.

        • Martine

          More men then women are trying to hook up and find partners any day of the week. When women say they can’t find a guy what they REALLY mean is they can’t find a gorgeous, wealthy, pleasant and obliging guy willing to marry them as soon as they decide to keep him.

          • shortJ

            I have no idea if there are that many women who can’t find a man, but I am certainly one who can’t; can’t get any male to glance at me sideways. Even an ugly, poor, miserable, un-obliging commitmentphobe, Martine. Believe it or not, it does happen. Don’t believe the hype that any woman can get a man. Lies!! :-(

      Hmmm, I’d rather “repel” the ones who don’t appreciate my sense of style. It filters out the ones who are not worth my time. It filters out the ones who only see your worth if you look the way you’re “supposed to” look in that acceptable article of clothing and run away if you wear anything out of the norm. They’re probably only complaining that there are so many people who see their unique style as a stumbling block rather than seeing the value, and embracing how they’ve owned it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Erica-Moret/796149478 Erica Moret

    Is this website for like.. chicks who were molested or something? Let’s cover ourselves up and try to look as unattractive as possible for fear of being looked at in a sexual way? I don’t know.. freaking weird… I’m glad I don’t have to put that much thought into my jeans and a t-shirt.

  • Thamanyah

    LMAO ! I had to see what it meant ! It wouldn’t repel me at all. I would think * Wow ! She’s somebody I could talk to. ” I do drop crotch, just no Cuban heels, for me. FYI, men could care less .

  • Jeff Cullen

    My girlfriend just alerted me to this blog today. I suppose now that I understand the definition, she is a bit of a “man repeller” herself. She was photographing my band during a show when I first laid eyes on her. It was instantaneously crystal clear that I must get to know this woman who possesses such a cool sense of style. I think how a woman dresses says far more about her than how her body looks in a tank top and yoga pants. Women able to avoid giving away how they look naked while still looking stylish and cool is pretty rare in my neck of the woods. First impressions are first impressions, and I find I’m far more likely to find someone who dresses interestingly to be… well, interesting–i.e. worth getting to know (in this case, I’m still with her 3 years later).

    I can only hope that I don’t represent the only heterosexual male out there who is immune to the “man repeller”, or we are well and truly doomed………………

  • Alisonic

    It must feel empowering, believing that you have all these love-interests but choose not to pursue them. Such posturing is almost exclusively a defense mechanism — and an obvious one. I hope it works out for you. Having spent most of my life shuttling between Manhattan and Hell A, I have known many women similar to yourself — I can say that statistically it does not go well. Unless of course it is the emasculated, ball-less variety of beta-man that you prefer. They can take a bit of your man-repellent and still manage to work up a tongue-lather on your favorite shoes. Enjoy it, sister. Don’t forget it’s all an act though. The real men will in fact, be repelled and stay repelled. As I imagine any casual reader of your blog would be.

  • kfmissrabbit

    My daughter just turned 14. While her friends are sexing it up as their twinkling hormones get the best of them, not to mention media pressure, shes become annoyed with the new burdens that seem to go hand in hand with womanhood and has decided to become a Man Repeller. She tutors math and makes sure that her fashion choices are forward and off-putting. No pole dancer fashion for her! FREEDOM at last for women is as simple as fashion choices that don’t giva for the constraints of “chic”. Mind over mincing. On your knees boys… there is nothing here for you.

    Unearthed your bloggy treasure from a web wasteland, and love it. I never realized the manner in which I’ve dressed since I can remember (over 50 years ago!) had a style category of any sort. Delighted to find my personal expressions of creativity validated. My style managed to repel the very worst sorts- those interested in outward appearance, and attracted the very best- one interested in who I am. As my mom told me years ago, you get what you advertise for, whether you mean to advertise or not.

    I’m a little late to the party but I just wanted to chime in because I think a lot of interesting things are happening in the comments;

    -why would anyone dress this way for more than a couple hours
    -men don’t care about how you dress anyway
    -were these women abused, thusly dressing in this manner to protect themselves?
    -i dress like this and it was fun to watch people totally repulsed

    I was kind of disheartened to not find anyone who really sympathized with my reaction. This style is EXTREMELY attractive to me. Whether you care about clothes or not you’ve made a decision about what to wear and it’s broadcasting a message. Fashion is a conversation you’re having with the world every time you leave the house. I’m a slob so I rarely dress up, people see my oversized milsurp coat draped on my small frame with my dumb stubble and uncombed hair popping out the top of this giant camo box and they know that “i don’t give a fuck about what i look like today”. When a girl pursues the MR style I’m totally captured, think of it as a conversation, this is interesting! Anyone dressed like this would kill any room they walked into, well, at least just me and I would assume everyone around me would be admiring her as well, too entranced to see anyone other than the prettiest princess at the ball.

    Just my 0.02

    Saw this “man repeller” blogger Leandra Medine. What was she doing on project runway? No sense of style, stupid ugly clothes… I guess you succeeded because you are really ugly and distasteful. Are you some chick that because you can’t attract a man says ok, the. I’m going to make a career of being undesirable?

    man repelling has become and hopefully will continue to be somewhat of a family hobby. One morning after getting dressed for school my mom asked “do people ever give you weird looks?” thanks mom love ya too! but even if they, do i cant help it. My mom was once told in high school that “if you dressed normally you would be reasonably attractive!” well isnt that dandy! oh well man repellers have more fun anyway im sure

  • Martine

    Actually never noticed that men dislike any of that stuff. I love high rise jeans, and I like harem pants too. And guys love it. It accentuates your waist and makes your legs look long. Hey I wore low rise jeans when they were new, and it was fun. Got compliments on them too at the time. Men don’t get repelled by your clothing style. Its how you wear it, and how confident you are. And its not just me. Do you really think all those cute tall college age dolls that buy that stuff at places they can afford like Urban Outfitters are all going home alone?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=637220180 Rivka Divorah

      COMPLETELY TRUE. it’s not like everybody looks good in skinny jeans and booty shorts. everyone should dress to their natural beauty and attributes. and if all else fails you can pile on the blue eyeshadow and hope for the best.

      • James Synkgar

        It doesn’t matter if men know woman’s fashion what matter (and arguably why fashion exists) is what men find appealing.
        Any woman who says I don’t care if men find it attractive or not should never be surprised if less men approach her

    • SydneyP

      I agree. Most guys don’t even care. And for those who do, what do they know about women’s fashion? I have to say that some styles are a little out there, but women should wear what they feel comfortable and confident in. As long as you feel great you’ll look great!

      No, guys do not love high rise jeans. Or high rise shorts, or high rise anything. I’ve actually had that specific conversation with my man clan, and none of us like high-waisted anything.

      Wearing high-waist clothing makes even supermodels look unattractive. It does NOT accentuate your waist, Here is why you should not wear them, and this is coming from a man:

      1)It draws attention to your crotch-meets-thigh area, not your waist.
      2)A lot of them, especially jeans, bunch up in the tummy area, making the pants look like some weird diaper with legs. Not cute.
      3)It makes you look unbalanced, like part of your torso suddenly transitioned downward, so you look out of proportion.
      4)Women with large hips look like they have even larger hips thanks to the high waist. Nothing wrong with big hips, until they get blown out of proportion by high waist clothing.
      5)Women with curvier tummies inevitably bulge out above and below the waist band, making a weird double muffin

      I could go on, but seriously, guys don’t love it. We hate it. Start asking your guy friends and make them give you their actual honest opinions, not just what we’ll tell you to avoid making you feel uncomfortable or hurting your feelings. There might be the occasional guy out there who likes them, but I suspect they’re few and far between.

      So if you’re man repelling, go for it. If you wanna be man attracting, stay the heck away.

      • Bink

        1) Wrong.
        2) Only if they’re poor quality. Even “more acceptable” styles of clothing can bunch up and look shitty.
        3) UH NO. Yes, there are certain women that do not look good in high waisted bottoms, but there are also women who DO. Know why? ‘Cause every women is shaped differently. For instance, a short waisted woman with a tummy will not look good in the same type of clothing that a long waisted woman will. Everyone is different.
        4) High waisted bottoms do have this affect. Refer to the above point.
        5) ACTUALLY, as a woman with a ‘curvier tummy’, high waisted bottoms HELP HOLD IT IN. Low waisted pants/bottoms accentuate my tummy, and depending on how tight the pants are, can make it look hella worse than it actually is.

        Sincerely,
        A woman, who wears clothing.

      • Martine

        Perhaps you aren’t the man I am trying to attract? Different kind of men like different kind of things. Do you honestly think you can speak for all men? I KNOW guys are not running from me, because…well because they are approaching me.I never ask people for their opinion, so NO, I am not about to start, but I do get compliments when I wear them, yes, from guys. They generally don’t even know I AM wearing high rise pants, actually, when I tell them, they seem to be in shock. I think they don’t get that high rise doesn’t mean above the belly button. Its still bellow, just not down on your arse.

      • Just a regular guy

        Anyone who uses the phrase “man clan” represents my opinion on nothing. Ladies, rock what you got. Any idiot who judges you on your high-waisted clothes is a waste of time. I love my lady no matter what she wears.

    What an interesting blog! Kudos to you. I think this man repeller idea is easy to understand (but correct me if I’m wrong). To dress like a “man getter”, you dress for what you imagine a man wants to see, involving the predictable tight fittings, short hemlines, low bust lines, high heels conformist scenario, with minor unique flourishes. If you embrace the man repeller idea, you aren’t really dressing to repel but instead, are feeling free to express yourself without fear of disapproval, even if that means repelling someone. You are truly dressing for yourself, your comfort, and individual sense of style. Most men dress in what we can fairly call “women repeller” clothes and we think that’s normal – they’re comfortable and “that’s how guys are”. Finally, women are saying, this is how we are so deal with it. Stop trying to please men. Please yourself and in the process, the right man will be attracted to the real, individual and interesting you. That’s the kind of man worth having and keeping.

    Heavy makeup is a repellent, especially multicolor.

    High heels (over 4 in) or 2 inch soles are a repellent.

    Clue 1: Dress for the man you want, just like a job, don’t want that particular man/job then don’t dress like you want it. Want that “Old Money” or “Wall Street” man/job then dress for it.

    Clue 2: Men are never repelled, clothes, jewelry, makeup, shoes, smokes, non smoker, drugs, non user, alcoholic, doesn’t drink, goes to church, has kids, etc even by a butherface, as long as the body is there, tits look great, works hard at head down ass up, it’s all good.

    Please analyse and argue this and you wonder why you’re still single.

      “The thing is, it’s patriarchy that says men are stupid and monolithic and unchanging and incapable. It’s patriarchy that says men have animalistic instincts and just can’t stop themselves from harassing and assaulting. It’s patriarchy that says men can only be attracted by certain qualities, can only have particular kinds of responses, can only experience the world in narrow ways. Feminism holds that men are capable of more – are more than that. Feminism says that men are better than that, can change, are capable of learning, and have the capacity to be decent and wonderful people.”

      (Read the full article here: https://zeroatthebone.wordpress.com/2011/11/22/on-claiming-to-be-a-stupid-man-who-doesnt-know-anything/)

      1) The idea that you dress for a man (or his money!) in the same the way you dress for a job is so incredibly sad. We don’t live in the 1960s anymore. Also, why would you judge a man based on his money? That’s like judging a woman by how well she cooks.

      2) You are so much more that your “great tits”. I hope when you say it’s enough that your body is there, you mean that every body is beautiful, and not just because it is the vessel of a miraculous being.

      And no, I’m not single. I’ve been in a committed relationship for over 3 years. For a college student, that’s not too bad.

I blame us (the men); if we wandered down the Street with our minds on our objectives (instead of the opposite sex) then there would be no need for girls/women/females to repel anything. Conversly, they’d be trying to find ways to attract our attention. Hang on!…isn’t that the point of repelling a man? smile*

    I’m completely disturbed by the fact that anyone would buy into this mentality (despite the admittedly lovely imagery used). #1 Women should not dress to men’s perceived tastes. It lacks self-worth. #2 Some men actually *like* the “man repellant” style. (I know because I am married to one.) “Man repelling” is funny, because the men it repels think that women should dress for them rather than for themselves.

    ‘pears i missed the boat on what i’m supposed to like as a man…probably has somethin to do with living here in NM where we don’t give a rat’s ass about how much money you make, what clothes you wear or what kind of car you drive or where you went to school. only whether or no you’re a cool, kind, decent person. call us freaks if you wanna….

    Lol love this concept! It antagonizes the patriarchy into thinking we give a crap about what they want women to be. It should be followed by a subtitle: as if women dress for men! Lol be a repellent of narrow minded dumb asses & be yourself….with flair if you like.

    The fact that women would go to such lengths as to dress in a fashion that conveys a disdain for men, actually proves that they can’t get men off of their minds! If they truly didn’t care what men think, men would be totally off of their minds. But the fact that they have to come up with an entire style trend to convey disdain for guys, proves that they are preoccupied with them.

    • augustpaldalecki

      You’d have a point there, except “manrepeller” is a name that was given to [an] already preexisting style[s] as a joke, because people started saying a gal could never get a guy dressing like that. So not only did you show us that you do not have a point, but also that you don’t have a sense of humor. Fail.

  • Kayla

    What’s hilarious about this is the number of men commenting that actually think we care if our clothes “repel” them or not. No man is ever factored into the equation when I choose an outfit. If women dress for anyone but themselves, it’s to impress or make other women feel like crap because of how up-to-date with women’s fashion trends they are. Women don’t do everything to impress men. Get over it. You’re clearly not that important to us as you think you are.

    i love you. and just FYI, i am someone who always wears makeup, and i ENVY women like you who are so comfortable in their own skin and can feel confident being BARE (or themselves). i sometimes try to not wear makeup, and i always end up putting some on…it’s an addiction! i love the bare look, but it scares me…props to you. and you are absolutely beautiful. people who don’t think so have bad taste.

  • linda da lawyer

    I am a 52 year old lawyer, married with young adult children. I have never worn “war paint.” I work with Ph.Ds and have found that successful, educated women don’t give a shit about makeup. They want to look okay but are not willing to worry about touching their face or rubbing their eyes and having to repair during work. Their hours are long and they do good work (make good money) and their self worth does not live or die on what anyone else thinks of their appearance. My guess is that the sooner some young ladies not in an industry that demand face paint give it up, the sooner they will be taken seriously in their job.

  • Arosha Ibizenca

    well I currently live in Dubai and I can assure you it’s really hard to find a decent man here, be it hot drop dead gorgeous and successful or ugly and still successful, they all seem to be players because of all the fake, gold digging girls here…it’s such a fake and transitory place Dubai is viewed as a holiday/business place for everyone and no one really wants to settle here…people are classified and stereotyped a lot and working for an airline it doesn’t really help either lol ;) I am hoping to move to a less fake city and start a new life from scratch this year and hope it all goes according to my plans :) ooh and btw I know man repelling is related to fashion topic, but here in Dubai you will attract more men if you show more skin ;) but obviously it’s only for short term purposes haha..Louboutin heels and Chanel and Prada are more than welcome here lol xx

  • lachlan

    I just stumbled across this page through facebook… and i’m confused. It seems to be a slightly feminist page about… fashion? And also a major ad revenue earner for the host. Fans be suckers.

  • Ugg with a Shrug

    Yep, first date a with a musician guy, he wanted a female to exert his manliness on at his 30th birthday. I didn’t put out, even though I thought I really liked him. 2nd date I wore a free top which doesn’t suit women with big hips and he had the instant turn off, “You look pregnant in that.” I never had to bother fighting off his intentions again. He only got amorous under the influence. It was my new fave top, I’d bought it especially for our next outing. I liked it, even if he didn’t. So, fashion as a man repellant worked well, even though it wasn’t my intention. I still was left feeling deflated that he was so totally shallow. That, and being employed ‘because I was ugly’ due to a boss who says his girlfriend was the jealous type, were definitely my two lowest points. You Rock, Leandra. Congratulations on your marriage.

    You wanna know why they’re fucking “whining endlessly?” Because apparently the only way you can avoid “repelling men” is to dress the way men want you to. Yep, you have to have a uniform to be in a relationship.
    Women are not choosing “man repelling” as a lifestyle by wearing the clothes they enjoy. They are being labeled for being themselves. It’s an extremely sexist way to think.

    I have a man that does not try anymore – so this site is perfect for me and it makes me laugh……. About the vacume monster, I have 1 big dog & 1 small dog. The big dog attacks the monster vacume while the small dog bites my feet & ankles. It’s a circus when I clean my floors. They do the same tactic when I mop or sweep. They are my fur babies, so I put up with cuts on my ankles.

    I have been told that Birkenstocks are hated by men but they are comfortable so I am wearing them anyway. So suck it Birky haters.

  • weasel5i2

    Make no mistake about it, some of us men actually *do* look beyond the clothes and make-up. I hope my philosophy doesn’t foil anyone’s man-repelling plans too much, however, I can assure you that there ARE other men out there who also share this view. :)

    And you’re quite beautiful, Leandra. If anyone else tells you otherwise, they are clearly smoking the crack rocks.

    I think people are reading too much concrete seriousness into the concept here. I’m getting a lot more of a sense of humor here. I think Manrepelling is the embodiment of the idea and concept of owning your own sense of style no matter if society tells you it’s acceptable and will ultimately “attract the sex of whom you are attracted to”.

    I’d rather “repel” the ones who don’t appreciate my sense of style. It filters out the ones who are not worth my time. It filters out the ones who only see your worth if you look the way you’re supposed to look in that acceptable article of clothing.
    Sometimes it even makes you feel like you’ve safeguarded yourself against street harassers, (although we know that would happen regardless).

    You know, for those who complain, they’re probably fed up with having to choose between their own personal style–an embodiment of their personal individuality, and having someone around to care for them. I think most Manrepellers are waiting for the Dean to their Maya (Jack’s wife Freda reference) and vice versa. Maybe more people should look at the value of the person, including their unique sense of style into that equation.

    I for one, love that it’s THAT easy to repel those who can’t get past such a stumbling block as the fabric on my body. :)
