Plus, as evidenced by the first article I linked to, I am in no position to criticize anyone for making endless lists. A lot of films about immature men mirror Trainspotting; a film concerning heroin users, the fact of its highs and lows was important due to its treatment of its subject matter — not glamorizing heroin but pointing out that there are obvious plus sides to taking it as well as significant downsides.
We see the characters struggle to escape from their addictions. The highs of destructive behaviour before the lows are the same as Trainspotting, yet few people talk of films glamorizing Being A Fucking Asshole. I am a fucking asshole. But this lifestyle seemed aspirational: I wanted to be Rob Gordon when I grew up.
Hulu's 'High Fidelity' Is a Show That Deserved Better
I wanted to work in a record shop and care about music way too much and compile top five lists of things and act all superior when other people enjoyed The Beta Band. I also wanted to be Tim Bisley when I grew up. I wanted to have strange little adventures, live in my own flat playing computer games all the time and build a robot for fighting. I worked in a record shop and it was disappointing. Likewise, when you meet the Tim Bisleys of fandom it can go badly.
I saw an aspirational figure in High Fidelity, and not a desperate raging manchild whose behaviour can tip over into harassment and violence. The Man is an asshole.
Kind of a funny asshole but an asshole nonetheless. Consider Knocked Up, When Harry Met Sally, and Groundhog Day. Comedies get mileage out of their lead characters acting like selfish or ignorant dicks until they learn a valuable life lesson in the finale. The same initial dynamic is part of characters like Alan Partridge, where the audience is rooting for them despite their clearly doing and saying insensitive things.
More and more fiction is dealing with established, supposedly masculine characteristics, questioning and interrogating them.
High Fidelity: When All Your Heroes Are Terrible People
Jemaine Clement, who excels at playing a variety of manchild characters both living and undead, has said he thinks being manchildren actually makes men better fathers because they can connect with their children better.
Based on that same logic the same should be true of any parent. The blurring of the line between adulthood and childish things applies to all genders. Simply put, the more people have a voice, the more information we have to understand the world with, and as a result of hearing from more voices my opinions shifted.
