There’s new evidence’if any is needed’that manliness is back.

According to a Washington Times report on a new Harris survey, ‘ninety-two percent of women said dependability is a desirable characteristic in an ideal mate. Only 16 percent chose ‘fashionable and 62 percent chose ‘strong’ as a desirable characteristic.’

‘A slap in the face to the extreme-makeover, suave-guy crowd,’ the article reports, is the sixty-one 61 percent of the women surveyed prefer a guy with rough, work-worn hands to a metrosexual male with a manicure.

“It just shows that there are some things that you can’t change and that, while feminism for a long time has been pushing us towards androgyny with little girls with trucks and guys with dolls, women tend to have feministic traits and guys the opposite,” the IWF’s Carrie Lukas, director of policy, was quoted saying. “If anything, it shows what feminism hasn’t been able to accomplish.”

Aren’t you glad?
