Who are these Very Sissy Men?

Throughout the history of motion pictures and television, and continuing to this day, there is a certain type of man who is neither the strong man nor the everyman, but the type of man for whom the sight of a pretty woman brings to mind the thought; “Where’d she get those shoes?” This man is the Sissy Man. No more is he assigned to the land of supporting players as the best friend or unctuous authority figure, in this blog, he is put up front and center where he belongs. You will see a number at the bottom of every Very Sissy Man. This is our very own “Sissy scale.” We rate the selected “Sissies,” from zero to ten. (Zero being John Wayne, a Sissy Man only because he walked sprightly in his spurs; and ten being a man who undoubtedly continues to live the life of a sissy long after the camera has stopped rolling-- think Liberace.) In addition to the Sissy rating, each entry contains a brief, humorous biography, along with a picture that conveys the very essence of the actor’s sissiness. Enjoy!

Jim J Bullock AKA Jm J Bullock

February 9, 1955

                  You can try to ignore Jim J Bullock, but we guarantee you won’t be able to do it. The tall, annoying, flamboyant yet strangely likeable force that is Jim J is one of those TV stars you either love or hate, but you certainly can’t ignore.  Born in Casper, Wyoming, this fantasy offspring of Paul Lynde and Martha Raye came to fame in the late ‘80s on the television series, Too Close for Comfort.  In the ‘90s, he briefly inherited the center square on The New Hollywood Squares.  Then, late in the decade, the planets aligned and paired Jim J with the equally annoying yet strangely likable Tammy Faye Baker to create the afternoon talk show/train wreck known as The Jim J and Tammy Faye Show.  It lasted barely a year. Apparently, you can only take the annoying aspect for so long.
