I did actually query the OP regarding what they regard as masculine, but they didn't respond (as far as I can see, may have missed it).

We're basically going on convention, of course. Leather and brass tradition, or racing-cars and girls, pirates and vikings, whatever is the opposite of pink and soft and sweet and cute. (insert Judith Butler quote of your choosing).

LOL. I may have meant that for the 'guy' deck thread, in hindsight

Well, I think we all have an instinctive feeling about what it means. But it is harder to put into words.

What is usually associated with the sacred male? The sacred male is willpower, action and controlled but very compassionate emotions.

So the color of decks that are balanced, not too feminine and not too masculine, are preferred. Pictorial depictions of the minors that are not passive are preferred. Also the message can't be wishy-washy, either or, but have definite clear answers.

Those are qualities that I think decks should have in order to communicate easily with men.
