THOUGHTS ON MANLINESS FROM Jeff Goldstein.
OK, stop laughing.
Really, that's pretty much all that needs to be said about this, given
People who are in fact masculine (or feminine!) don’t maintain a checklist: Well, I need to demonstrate that I’m masculine, therefore I shall buy a gun/cheer a sports team/ogle nubile teenagers/ride a motorcycle. Instead they do those things and others automatically, without thinking or any specific intent, because they are expressions of the underlying characteristic.So building go-carts and treehouses and playing outside and reading Army counterinsurgency manuals while studiously avoiding doing the dishes and taking care of your kids will not, in any way, shape, or form, make you more of a man.
So Dr. Mr. Putz is, once again, proven to be totally full of shit.
