2014: To prove his manhood a man must be an awesome Father.


This is a trend I've noticed since I have had my second child. I was looking around Chuck E Cheese one day with both kiddos and saw to my delight Dad's all over the place very involved. It's not cool anymore between dudes to not be involved in your children's lives... and that's great/deserves mentioning.

Sure there are exceptions but JMO.

Uh, according to these guys in the Amazon of Brazil, you have to wear Bullet Ant gloves for five minutes without crying a total of 20 times to prove you are a warrior and man, and you can't be counted on to provide for a family until you can be called a warrior. So, this is what they think it takes in 2014.



They're tougher than the average 1st World meatball ... that's for sure.


" If you live without suffering or pain, it's worth nothing"

Ok, I get that.

But all this just to marry?

I'll go the girlfriend route thank you. lol

Peace

2014- To prove he is a man, a man must; wear skinny jeans, cry during an HBO special, protest, get a piercing or three, some hoop things in his ears, a facial tattoo, wear a Che t-shirt when he visits his parents to ask for more money, and honestly complain why he can't get a job while defending the reasons why he is not working at any job.

I thought he had to wear footie pajamas and glasses and spoil everyone's Christmas by discussing Obamacare and how great it is while sipping hot chocolate as he sits Indian-style on the couch.

Oh, wait! Is that racist to say Indian-style now? Maybe I should just say sits like a Kindergartner ...

I see that not too many see the humor here as I Do.

I have been searching for this content for a year because of the humor I found in it. I couldn't find it so I finally thought to type it all.

Well....ROTFLMFAO...On My Own.

Still.

Peace

I appreciate the humor, but in a more serious vein your thread brought to mind this. . .


If—
By Rudyard Kipling
(‘Brother Square-Toes’—Rewards and Fairies)

If you can keep your head when all about you

Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,

If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,

But make allowance for their doubting too;

If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,

Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,

Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,

And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:



If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;

If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster

And treat those two impostors just the same;

If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken

Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,

Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,

And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:



If you can make one heap of all your winnings

And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,

And lose, and start again at your beginnings

And never breathe a word about your loss;

If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew

To serve your turn long after they are gone,

And so hold on when there is nothing in you

Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’



If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,

Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,

If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,

If all men count with you, but none too much;

If you can fill the unforgiving minute

With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,

Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,

And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

2014: To be a man you must pay all your bills and fees on what little income you have after taxes then spend what you don't have on the things you don't need, Obey the government, and don't make anyone feel "offended"

I'm sorry. I thought the bullet ant thing was funny compared the way your list trailed off.

2014: To be a man you must be able to name every player on every sports team, chug down 6 beers in 2.4 minutes, burp the alphabet, master the game of golf and damn well like it, work 60 hours a week to pay your taxes and your alimony and your child support and your mortgage and your car loan and your credit card bills, learn to say "yes dear" without delay, apologize profusely to your wife at least 3 times a day, and learn to sleep in a curled fetal position in order to fit inside the dog house.



... those boys didn't know how easy they had it back in 200,000 B.C.

No worries,

I'm coming to understand that not many are going to "Get it"
