A cutecel is someone who is cute looking, but cannot find a partner. Male cutecels sometimes had positive female attention in their teenage years, but women found them too feminine after around age 18. A cutecel tends to be near the bottom of male social hierarchies.
Male cutecels are usually unintentionally androgynous, angry, and sad. Their hyper-feminine appearance is often a turn-off to women after their teenage years. Some cutecels are also short, just shy, have autism, or body image issues. Even beautiful mid-20s cutecels may only rarely get attention on dating apps. Cutecels have faces so feminine their ranking on the decile chart may not necessarily reflect their social and romantic success. People generally treat them like unimportant males.
Male cutecels are thought to be by-products of non dominant and or non aggressive looking men reproducing with conventionally/objectively beautiful women. A study on parental facial masculinity and femininity has shown masculinity of the father's face is extremely heritable for both sons and daughters, in that low masculinity faced fathers have both low masculinity faced sons and daughters, also hi masculinity faced fathers have both hi masculinity faced sons and daughters. Facial masculinity and facial femininity are two seperate scales. Meaning low facial masculinity does not automatically mean hi facial femininity. A person's face can be low in both facial masculinity as well as facial femininity. The facial masculinity of moms have no affect on the facial masculinity of offspring. masculinity is correlated with beauty but to a much lesser extent than femininity is correlated with beauty. Meaning that a guy with a hyper masculine face could still be considered ugly or unattractive. Male cutecels are indeed primarily caused by non dominant and or non aggressive looking men reproducing. The sons cuteness is exacerbated if the mom has a face hi in femininity (highly correlated with beauty). Male cutecels look like they have a hormonal profile of high estrogen but normal to low testosterone during prenatal development and or puberty. Some cutecel exacerbating factors are environmental pollutants like synthetic estrogens found in plastic softeners, unnatural diet, the mother having excessively high estrogen levels while pregnant, mutational load (inbreeding), fraternal birth order, natural genetics, autism or any combinations of the above. A cutecel can also be short in stature due to low amounts of Human Growth Hormone, secreted by his pituitary gland. This is called a cutelet. A short man with an ugly, normal, or handsome face is called a manlet.
Another exacerbating factor is a constant depressed mood, producing higher levels of cortisol and the subsequent lowering of testosterone that results from high cortisol levels, leading to a higher Cortisol/T ratio, which results in a incomplete level of masculinization of the face and body during puberty. This is why sadboys, and emo guys are always feminine/androgynous looking. For example, there are no cases of emo bodybuilders, because lifting weights elevates one's mood, raises self esteem, and has anti-depressant effects.
The results of the parental facial masculinity and femininity study also show that since masculine facial features are only inherited from paternal DNA, a man cannot reproduce a massively more masculine faced son from mating with a masculine faced woman. Thus even if male cutecels and or cutelets ascend, no matter what the girls they reproduce with look like, their sons will still have to deal with being overly cute. A man's facial masculinity comes from secondary, indirect factors such as regression toward the mean, genetic mutations, inbreeding depression, outbreeding depression, atavisms and any other currently unknown factors as well. Essentially through the primary, direct factor of male choice, sexual selection. The best men can do is reliably reproduce pretty boys/chadlites and Stacys, as well as Gigastacys. On the other hand again, because masculine facial features are only inherited from paternal DNA, women can select men that have both masculine and or beautiful faces. Thus under female mate choice, women can reliably reproduce any form of Chads(lite,gigga,pretty) as well as any form of Stacys(lite,gigga).
The male cutecel often has a feminine "cute" childish face with large round eyes (not hunter-eyes), and often has a high voice. Sometimes, a cutecel's subconscious behavior is also feminized. Male cutecels often times have "Gay Face", a condition where the midface's, geometric proportions are equal to a beautiful woman's instead of a handsome man's. This means an expanded instead of compact midface, and or a vertically long nose. (Bulldogs and Sean O' Pry, have compact midfaces, and vertically short noses.) Gigachad Wannabe has an expanded midface and a vertically long nose. https://www.reddit.com/r/Justfuckmyshitup/comments/asd0wq/gigachad_wannabe/
Thus, he looks gay. cutecels tend to look gay based on face alone, even when they are straight.
