Then there's the Double Standard: Rape, Female on Male, suggesting that if all men always want sex and would never turn it down, then they cannot be raped by a woman.
Needless to say, this is all ripe for exploitation by a Genre Savvy villain/ess.
"Do you know what would be the best way to wipe out all of humankind if you were a space alien with a special mind-ray? Cos' if they suddenly found out about the kind of stuff that goes on in our heads they'd kill us all on the spot. We are disgustoids in human form."The tendency for all men within a work of fiction to think primarily with their penises.
As such they will be constantly trying to peek up girls' skirts or into the girl's locker room, and will go out of their way (often to absurd lengths) to either catch a glimpse of something naughty, or gain a minuscule chance of doing the deed.
People love these characters.” Respectfully, I say that’s wrong. As the creators of the dominant portrayal of scientists in American culture right now, the producers of BBT can do better.
Men will become catatonic, prove unable to think straight, get massive nosebleeds, etc. If a man shows any amount of interest in a woman, it's assumed to be sexual.
This trope is so prevalent that, if a male character is being lecherous around women, he is often assumed to be either gay or a eunuch.
Another interesting trend is how men aren’t even close to reaching the upper bound of the zone of non-creepiness.
According to the Standard Creepiness Rule, it’d be perfectly fine for a 30-year-old man to date a 45-year-old woman, but apparently 30-year-old men are already struggling with the idea of dating a 37-year-old!
