The first sign of a "pussified" male is if he is wearing pink. Guys who wear pink have issues.

I think that many American & Euro males have lost any semblance of what manhood involves. Look at the proliferation of the homosexuals. Then, during the terrorist strike of the Taj Mahal Hotel, two men "snuck" out while being forced upstairs. Why didn't those cowards look out for the women ?? (Of course, they were English) ::) No, instead, THEY snuck out and ran like a couple of pussies. The we have "men" that just don't have any balls any more, thanks to our Leftist Teachers. ****in' boys can't even be boys any more. Throw an eight year old back some 40 years and they would be called "sissies", "wimps" and all other sorts of effeminate names.

That they never progressed past the 1980's in terms of fashion.

Sorry, but I'll never become a metrosexual.  I believe in hygiene, but not primping.

--I do not tweeze my eyebrows, and as such, look much like Brezhnev.
--I put shampoo in my hair, not "product".  I do not have sufficient hair to justify conditioner.
--I go to a barber and pay $9 for a haircut, not a stylist who charges $50.
--I do not get manicures or pedicures.  I use nail trimmers, or if particularly stubborn, pliers.
--I do not use body sprays or washes.  These are not sufficient to remove dirt, grease, and God only knows what else I came in contact with that day.  Soap works, or Goop.  Sometimes, Lava soap is necessary.
--I do not need a floor length coat every time the temperature outside drops below 40 degrees.  Usually, a sweatshirt is sufficient, and sometimes that comes off because I'm breaking a sweat from WORKING.  Heavy coats become necessary when temperatures are expressed in single syllables or wind chills begin with the word "Minus" or "Negative" or end with "Below".
--I do use moisturizer lotion in the winter, because when there is NO moisture in the house and it's a bit raw outside, keeping from bleeding from chapped skin isn't sissy, it sucks.

Case in point--I do take my car to the local Jiffy Lube to do oil changes, only because it's faster and more convenient.  I saw an issue of GQ on the shelf featuring the "Maine Man".  Out of curiosity, I went to the first page where the wee-bit too old to be an Abercrombie model was sitting in a rustic setting on the back of a boat wearing (and I found this online, I'll post the link later:)

Jacket, $1,685, by Michael Bastian. Hoodie, $208, by Engineered Garments. T-shirt, $30 (for three), by Calvin Klein Underwear. Pants, $289, by Woolrich Woolen Mills. Boots, $79, by L.L.Bean.

$1700 for a jacket.  Oh, HELL NO! 
$200 for a sweatshirt?  Are you out of your ****ing minds?

I know people who haven't spent that much on clothing IN THEIR ENTIRE LIVES.  I asked the guy who had just finished working on my car if he had seen this article and when I showed him metrosexual number one, we both got a good laugh out of it as we shook our heads.

Oh, and for those curious...LINK

I felt compelled to write on this because living near Maine, as I do, more than a few of us follow similar habits.

Does that mean I come out looking/smelling/talking like a caveman?  Hardly.  Just making the point that one CAN retain one's masculinity without being a total primitive.  Then again, if I went to NYC, etc., I'd probably be regarded as such.  Their loss.

Primping consists of brushing my hair.....if I'm not wearing a cap or hat.

--I do not tweeze my eyebrows, and as such, look much like Brezhnev.

What eyebrows...got 6 hairs on one side and 7 on the other.

--I put shampoo in my hair, not "product".  I do not have sufficient hair to justify conditioner.

Ivory soap.....it's good enough for the hair on my a$$....head hair is similar.


--I go to a barber and pay $9 for a haircut, not a stylist who charges $50.

Same here.....I must be paying to much.

--I do not get manicures or pedicures.  I use nail trimmers, or if particularly stubborn, pliers.

I thought that's what pocket knives were for?

--I do not use body sprays or washes.  These are not sufficient to remove dirt, grease, and God only knows what else I came in contact with that day.  Soap works, or Goop.  Sometimes, Lava soap is necessary.

A pre-soak in diesel fuel helps if you're in a hurry.

--I do not need a floor length coat every time the temperature outside drops below 40 degrees.  Usually, a sweatshirt is sufficient, and sometimes that comes off because I'm breaking a sweat from WORKING.  Heavy coats become necessary when temperatures are expressed in single syllables or wind chills begin with the word "Minus" or "Negative" or end with "Below".

40 degrees outside...hell that's the inside temperture in this "*" economy.....enjoy it while you can.......Obama's coming, you know.
 
--I do use moisturizer lotion in the winter, because when there is NO moisture in the house and it's a bit raw outside, keeping from bleeding from chapped skin isn't sissy, it sucks.

Udder Creme is good for body flaking....and may be tax deductable if you own a farm.

I do the Jiffy Lube things too.

$1700 for a jacket.  Oh, HELL NO!

My mother would come back from her grave just to kick my ass for that.  
$200 for a sweatshirt?  Are you out of your ******* minds?

I would think so.

I know people who haven't spent that much on clothing IN THEIR ENTIRE LIVES.  I asked the guy who had just finished working on my car if he had seen this article and when I showed him metrosexual number one, we both got a good laugh out of it as we shook our heads.

Yeah...I'd shake my head too.....but I wouldn't shake the models hand.

'Bout the same down south.

Swore up and down I'd never be caught in NYC, ever again.....I believe I'll be able to keep that promise.

I found a barber that only charges $6 for a haircut. It ain't a real nice place, but they do the job.

I use a pair of dykes to trim my fingernails... (no, that's NOT a sexually oriented reference!!)

I did buy one long coat when I was up in MN. I spent WAY too much on it, but it'll last me the rest of my life.

I think the Governator is partially responsible for this "metrosexual" bullshit.

(Mrs. E had to explain "metrosexual" to me a couple of years ago. I was appalled. WTF is it with guys who wear scarves INDOORS?)

Actually, this is a trend that is characteristic of the times. A lotta guys just don't do the kind of work that most men have done in the past. Let's consider these questions:

1.  How many guys in Manhattan have mixed a wheelbarrow of concrete EVER?
2.  How many guys in Miami have actually dug a post hole? Properly? And not fallen in it?
3.  How many guys in Duluth have rotated a set of tires? Without a lift? And an impact tool?

It's not for swimmers so much as divers and surfers.

I know that some swimmers do it to gain the tiny fraction of a second better time.  But anyone who wears a wetsuit has a more practical reason - it's a pain in the ass (and the legs, and the chest, and the arms...) to put on a wetsuit when you've got a substantial amount of body hair.

Plus, when it comes to wetsuits, shaving is most certainly not the most sissified method of making things easier.  There are some guys, or so I've been told, who wear pantyhose under their wetsuits to escape the leg-hair problem.

As for me, I just deal with it - ain't that bad, and I don't dive very often at all anymore.  But I don't begrudge anyone who wants to make slipping into their wetsuit easier - especially if they're rescue divers or something like that.
