Question
 
I was having a discussion where I said that it seemed like the era of real men seems to be coming to an end. I argued that boys these days shave themselves bald, soft hands, don't like to get dirty, don't like hard work, doesn't know how to fix a loose screw and just the manner in which a man treats another man seems to be lost on the newer generations. I was wondering if anyone else thought something close to this or if you believe that real men aren't in danger of becoming the minority.

I believe your premise is flawed.

All men (and women) don't have to be a certain way to be validated. That's absurd.

Your poll should include a "Please get in your time machine and return to the 1950s" option.

I voted yes and no.

I am not really sure what a 'real' man exactly but I tend to judge men on their individual merits rather than on a perceived group of behaviours. Many changes have been for the better.

Two thoughts on this:

- No, real men aren't in danger of anything.

- Depends on how the term "real men" is defined, anyway.

Seriously. What happened to the men who could fix a sink, smoke a cigar, chop down wood to make his own furniture, wrestle a tiger, build his own car, and wasn't afraid to yell at a woman to make him a sandwich and bring him a beer?

Where have all the real men gone? And can they stay there?

Wait until the day when, after all those years of calling adults "Mr. Brown", "Mrs. Smith", and "Miss Jones", and after you become an adult yourself, pre-schoolers address you by your first name. If you're lucky.

Nobody said life was fair.

That is why I have a poll option giving you the chance to say I am crazy.

Why so? Real men don't react in violence, they talk out their problems or walk away. Real men also don't call other men bitches; also real men shouldn't be bothered by being called bitch.

Hon, we covered the fact that your definition of reality is flawed in your last thread.

I wish I was a man now so I could call J. Allen a bitch. With love of course. I might even slap his ass a little.

Re: Question
 
Y'know, some women say "I want a real man" and mean a guy who beats up a couple of guys in a bar and then fucks her brains out like an animal, and some women say "I want a real man" and mean a guy who applies cucumber masks to himself and reads poetry to her.

There's no universal definition of what a real man or what a real woman is.
