men who do not fit the accustomed stereotypical portrait of how a man should act. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) of California referred to the state Democrats by this moniker as a result of their stalling and refusal to pass his planned budget.
Arnold thought long and hard. He was furious with the state Democrats. How dare they not pass my budget, thought he. He looked over the varied scripts of his films to see if there was a suitable quote in Terminator 3, or Jingle All The Way, or Last Action Hero. But there wasn't. But then he had it.

"I shall call them...", he said, "girlie men!"

Originally started in 1990's, from Saturday Night Live's steroid laden Austrian team of Hans and Franz. Obviously a play on Ah-nuld's image, they would spout phrases like "Pump you up!" and call other men "Girlie Men."
FRANZ: Because if you can't, you shouldn't be laughing, you little girlie men out there, because you are so flabby, and you don't have a big gun! Get a big German gun like ours, ja, not flabby at all!

Someone who questions the masculinity of others and yet maintains their appearance in ways normally associated with women, such as removing body hair, wearing make up, dying their hair, and being excessively concerned about their appearance of physical fitness.
