Without getting all undergrad, I'm just going to ask exactly what you think it means for a "men to be men" and "women to be women." It would seem quite tautological to me, but I would like to hear your explanation.
If for one, as a man, prefer my men to be witty more than anything else. I like my ladies the same way.
Obviously, there is no quantifiable way to measure this, but I would say that when men start to act/dress/look more effeminate, that is typically unattractive to women. When women start to act/look/dress more masculine, that is VERY unattractive to men. I will illustrate with visuals (I'm not saying that you have to be as attractive as the two attractive people below to qualify as a man or a woman, very few people are:
Attractive male (and I know this because my mom blushes every time she sees him):
Unattractive male due to his unwillingness to be a man (my mom would be so ashamed if I dressed like this):
Attractive female (she is intelligent, successful, talented, and powerful, while at the same tim feminine:
Unattractive woman (does not want to highlight her femininity):
