Re: Real men don't ____ ?

I used to wax... probably once a month.

Shame tho as I've gotten older I don't do it so often and when I do I generally have someone do it for me.

Re: Real men don't ____ ?

Real men don't:

-sit on their butt and let a woman stand to give her seat to an elderly, pregnant woman, young child, injured person. He will stand right away and offer his immediately.

-pass a woman in the stairs trying to bring a stroller down with difficulties. He will offer his help right away.

-sit on a seat in a busy public transportation without offering the seat to his girlfriend/wife/partner/other.

-will not let his girlfriend/wife/partner/other help the mother to bring the stroller down the stair while looking at his finger nails.

-will hold the door to other people coming in a building or elevator.

The most expensive suits in the world won't make someone look like a man, his actions will.

Unless she's physically challenged, I don't understand why she wouldn't be able to stand as well?

oh yes it does... it goes back to the medieval code of gallantry and chivalry.
It's all about slaying dragons for a lady, troubadours, white sails and enchanted legends.

Re: Real men don't ____ ?

Oh yes, times have changed.. but have women ?

Back on topic.. actually the point brought up is part of the topic, because it relates to what the other gender expects/hopes for.

Real men won't:
- let a woman cry. Usually a guy with a heart will try and comfort her
- compete with a woman
- destabilize

These are really old traditional ideas of chivalry.
Though we have gender equality now, basic human nature still rejects education to come back to the essentials that we are equal.... but different
Regardless of the era, princes and princesses and fairy tales still remain.

Re: Real men don't ____ ?

Real men dont describe stories with personal feelings but rather with statements and facts (who, what, when, where, how)

Oh and real men dont drive themselves in cars...they are chauffered - dnt think that was spelled right

Hear hear. Tradition like this shouldn't be lost.

Now, traditional women, it's time to do your part.

That's true, if they did, they would cry. And real men don't cry so they'd better not wax either.
