I suspect it'd be harder to tie a tie "backward" as woman would have to do it facing the man.
It's not backwards if you never need to tie it forwards. It's just tieing something, which is easier to do if you can see it properly.

What is all this crap about real men fixing things? Don't you think women should be able to fix things too?

You either learn to fix things or you learn to earn enough to pay someone else to fix them. Neither is right or wrong, they are just choices you make. And none of it has anything at all to do with gender.
I haven't talked about woman, because I am not one. My post wasn't meant to insult gender.
Thank God that you're not a woman
After reading some of your posts I have come to the conclusion that 1) you're a boy and 2) you have a lot of learning to do to truly understand what it's really like to be a man. Not a "real" man, but a just man.

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 agree. I'm fed up of all these trans-men coming over to our gender, taking all our manly jobs and using our urinals. Go back to your own gender!

That's a really lame defence. If it had been your opinion that there aren't enough "real" women around these days, by which you mean women who don't work and spend most of their day making themselves look pretty for their husbands, it wouldn't matter a damn that it was just an opinion. Your opinion on what makes a "real" man is idiotic and offensive, and it has been rightly exposed as such. If you don't like that then stop creating threads about your opinions.

Say, this is a bit of a side track to the topic, but I just got to thinking. (a rarity to be sure) What's the sub-context in movies with women helping men with their ties?
Usually seems to be a mothering thing.
NO!! gah, it is about dicks. Duh.

It always is.

It is also, for storytelling purposes, obviously a more general expression of intimacy.

I have but I had to point out that he was going to extremes and putting things in there that I didn't say.
Yeah...and you completely missed the point. Have you thought about any of the questions I asked you?

I also want to add: People this is my opinion, I asked a question. I did not say this was how it had to be, this is just my opinion.

I can pretty much guarantee that no one cares at all whether or not they fall into your definition of what it means to be a man, because we all agree that your definition of what it means to be a man is extremely naive and absolutely untrue. Why post the question at all if you're not interested in reconsidering your "opinion"?

I didn't fit any of the negative (from your POV) traits you listed and didn't take it personally in the slightest. I just found your opinion to be outdated, unfounded, and insulting to others on its own. You don't have to be gay or black or a woman to disapprove of them being mistreated or stereotyped, and the same applies here.

And don't start playing the martyr. You said something people didn't like, and they called you on it. That's how discussion forums work. It's not because people are automatically coming into this dismissing your opinion out of hand without consideration first.
