Masculinity theory, also known as Colez' masculinity theory, is a theory of physical attractiveness that regards a masculine appearance—in both face and body—as the most important quality to a man's attractiveness. This "masculinity" usually refers to the robust bone structure and muscle mass. According to the masculinity crew, the ideal man is tall, big-framed and muscular, with prominent brow ridges, a wide jaw and a broad face. Another ideal is the mascthetic look which emphasizes both a masculine appearance along with facial aesthetics.
Proponents of masculinity theory include the masculinity crew, also called Colez masculinity crew or the Colez biker gang. There are some subtleties within the masculinity crew. Some, like the member CruiseControl, asserts that a relatively short midface is masculine and therefore attractive. Others within the masculinity crew assert that the overall broadness of the face is what matters, regardless of midface length. CruiseControl also states that a long chin is unattractive, while some others within the masculinity crew disagree.
The general male population believes in some sort of "masculinity theory" in regards to looks. Men tend to believe that body matters as much as face, and that facial dimorphism matters to a significant extent, just like how it matters in women. Thus they will deem "pretty boys" as unattractive because of their short height, small frame or relatively feminine faces.
The masculinity crew member CruiseControl states that individuals should not be too tall because taller men look lanky. Also taller men tend have "elongated" faces with long noses, which are deemed to be unattractive by some men. According to CruiseControl, the ideal height is between 5'11"-6'2".
Indeed, scientists have shown that taller people have elongated faces, as shown in the diagram below:
Pretty boy bashing
The masculinity crew is known for bashing the so-called "pretty boys" like Justin Bieber (2009), Hayes Grier (2014) and Francisco Lachowski (2010).

Views on sex
Taller, larger-framed men are not just more attractive but they're being perceived to have higher status.
They're being perceived to be more dominant.
Being dominant in all areas, including sex.
Being more forceful when trusting his penis in and out, WITHOUT EFFORT.
Being able to throw a female around, WITHOUT EFFORT.
Having more stamina, WITHOUT EFFORT.
While the short male has to make an effort during sex.
Having a weak trust.
Getting tired easily.
Not pounding as hard in result.
Sure, a short male could throw a female around and "dominate" her all he wants just like a tall man.
But it isn't the same.
The short guy has to go through GREAT EFFORT to do this.
Sure, the manlet could be as forceful when trusting his penis in and out, but WITH GREAT EFFORT.
Sure, the manlet could throw a female around, but WITH GREAT EFFORT.
Sure, the manlet could have more stamina, but WITH GREAT EFFORT.
But too much effort is a turnoff.
Like how being a try-hard is a turnoff.
Women are attracted to bullies because they're dominant.
But it's not just dominance, but EFFORTLESSNESS.
Knocking someone out is attractive.
But being able to EFFORTLESSLY knock someone out is even more attractive.
Far more attractive than the manlet who has to go through great lengths to win a fight.
The EFFORTLESS man is more attractive, even if both men will win.
The KEY to being perceived as EFFORTLESS during sex is being a tall, big-framed man.
