    Someone who is able to be themselves without giving a fuck what anybody else thinks of them is truly a strong person.
    For all intents and purposes, anybody who displays the courage required to be oneself is a real man, regardless of gender.


    If you want the dick answer - being a real man means you're sloppy and disgusting and don't care about clothes or hygiene and need your mommy to do your laundry.

    This is a three-parter:

    1. Bears: ability to kill a wild bear charging at you with your bare hands;
    2. Beets: ability to both grow beets and harvest them for eating; and
    3. Battlestar Galactica: ability to pay the utilities so Battlestar Galactica may be watched in the comfort of the home after all that bear-killing and beet-harvesting.

    I think it would depend on each individual's definition of what a man is.. there isnt and absolute quality of what a "real man" is..

    but my idea of a real man, would be someone that is supportive, he is someone people can rely on. especially when it comes to things like family..

    I go along with "Timbales" and "Ariodante" and as the "theantijock" shows anything else is optional.

    Serious response tiiiiiiiime..as much as I hate to do so.

    The prompt is inherently flawed in a couple ways. When talking about "Man" you could either be talking about sex or gender, though the term leans closer to be referring to sex ("Male" could more equally be referring to sex or gender).

    The word "Real" in the prompt is the one that presents the larger dilemma, however. It implies there are only two absolute extremes to the answer, and no gray area.

    "Real Man", sexually, is a bit more straight forward than gender wise, which is ridden with conflict, for it refers to physical properties. Ovaries, vagina, breasts et al = Sexually female. Testicles, penis et al = Sexually male.

    But what about that person with a penis and breasts!? Slight gray area! However leaning more towards the male sexual spectrum due to the fact breasts are secondary to the penis and testicles in determining male sexuality. Hermaphrodites? Gray area in the middle!

    Then you have male gender and what that is determined by. And guess what, I'm not even touching that fucking subject on this message board with a 10 foot goddamn pole. If you've been around this site long enough you know why. Goodnight folks!
