Who ISN'T A real man...

Jude Law, he is an over grown boy because he cheated on his wife with the baby sitter.

What IS a Real man is..
A Man that can fight (Even if he loses every time).
...that takes care of his family
...atleast pays his bills (maybe not always on time)
...takes responsiblity for his actions
...shows patiences, kindness and discipline
...Gives Respect
...Is Respected
...Has Command Presence, A force to be reckoned

What ISN'T A Real man, makes him a mere male, A LOSER.
A guy.....
...that cheats on his wife or girlfriend
...has other people fight his battles for him
...Avoids responbsilibilty
...Doesn't respect people in general his kids, slaps his wife/girlfriend around
...getting drunk or doped-up instead of taking care of his family. IE Spending his family's last $100 on liquar, meth or weed
...Gets thrown in jail for stupid bar fights, when his family needs him
...His presence is feared, not respected. By everyone, especially his family
...Doesn't protect his family or children.

These lists don't apply to most teenage boys. Because they are still growing and learning.

Think about what makes a real man..
Is it when he becomes a father? What if he is only 16 or 50?
When he graduates from College? What if he never goes to college?
If he joins the military? What if he can't join the military?
Fights? What if his spiritual guidance teach him differently?
What if he is Gay or Bisexual? does that make him less of a man?

All these questions and no answers. There is no set guidelines on what makes a Male into a MAN.

We know that any idiot can father a child...
Not everyone goes to college, but can and do still become successful
Some men can't join the military due to disabilities.
Not everyone is a fighter, nor a lover. They choose with live without violent conflict.

What are your thoughts on what makes a real man or atleast a man?

For a "real man" he's certainly insecure about what gays do.

Not to mention spends a lot of time on "what's wrong with women today." Misogynistic baptist bastard.

I hate that jackass. My grandfather listens to that Repuli-Christ garbage he spews.

But yeah, that's a "real man" to some. And cartoon cowboys and cartoon soldiers and cartoon presidents. All that juvenile machismo crap.

I think what you wrote made the most sense. The caricatures just don't cut it.

Them Ultimate Fighters are real men! I couldn't find the right photos of all the Services other than some burial. I was looking for a Color Guard or MWR photos, couldn't find any.

Wait do we mean real as in "I don't care if your t*ts are silicone, if I can touch em they are real." or as in real real like John Wayne?

"Take em both out I don't need them, I'll grow gills and breath like a fish."

Or Bruce Campbell?

"Good, Bad, I'm the guy with the gun."

Or Hulk(Terry) Hogan?

"Eat you vegetables and take your vitamins all you little hulksters!"

Or Lance Armstrong? What is your definition of a real man?
