loose terms here,
Men (guys) have somewhat of a harsh method of showing affection to one they consider a friend.
Like a punch in the arm, or a shove, and calling them a feminine term like, wussy (in keeping things clean), and then laugh or smile and get back to
playing basketball or shooting cans off a fence post and so on.
Likewise, in training a group of men, they will call them feminine names not only to make them push themselves harder but also to make sure they have
checked their ego at the door because they are not worthy of a serious compliment until they earn it by achievement.
When seriously insulting another, the feminine term insults are gauntlets thrown to insinuate that he is 'weak' and not masculine, (tough, strong
etc), enough to be given any regard as a competent 'alpha'. Insulting a man's masculinity is the quickest way to establish that if the one doing the
insulting can put his money where his mouth is should the one being insulted engage and win the confrontation verbally or physically.
It's usually not until they get drunk, and have been friends long enough, that they will say "I love you maaan".
Personally, I prefer a more refined approach
