Christina Majaski at askmen.com reports on a survey that shows that 81 percent of men think Ian Fleming’s iconic character James Bond is a good role model.
Bond. James Bond. Those few words can stir up a wide array of emotions for audiences of all ages, calling to mind the immortal Sean Connery, fast cars, femme fatales, gunfights, and fistfights. While some might have called the character’s character (or behavior) into question, according to recent survey results, a lot of guys actually approve (and would like to keep him that way.)
In celebration of the upcoming release of Bond 25, MyLotto24 conducted an in-depth survey on the British spy, and the results just might surprise you. Not only do guys still have a resoundingly positive opinion regarding James Bond, but both men and women seem to share these views of his controversial character.
As it turns out, while feminist critics have often pointed out elements of sexism and misogyny in Ian Fleming's creation, even the most modernized viewers don't seem to have too much of a problem with the British man's man.
