    I have had this discussion before, but some people tend to define man as someone who sleeps with girls and makes babies, which to me sounds like a macho. I'm having a hard time defining man. Any help?

    Thanks

    It's unique to each guy what he decides is manly or mannish in another guy.

    There is no formula. icon_wink.gif

    Well, it depends.

    You could say anything with a dick is man or will be once he's over 18. Or you could say a man is a responsible, adult human being. Or you could say a man is anyone who farts, drinks beer, eats pussy (sorry, guys, just had to say that), and butts heads with his bros. Or, perhaps a real man is an extremely rare creature who embodies all the superhuman qualities the rest of us are capable of but seldom manifest. True Compassion, Conscience, Consciousness, Love, Wisdom, the ability to Be Present in the moment in any circumstance and never loose himself to the chaos of the world around him. We're talking Christs and Buddhas, etc. Very rare, indeed.

    So, it depends.

    There's one sure fire way to tell if you're dealing with a man. He can admit he's wrong and genuinely be apologetic.

    a man has a dick. a woman has a vajay-jay.

    Now lets move onto something a little more difficult, like solving world hunger.

    I look at his driver's license. If it says he's a man, then he's a man (and that includes female-to-male pre-operative and post-operative transgenders and transsexuals).

    An adult male that acts like an adult, regardless of our perception of their gender identity.

    Alright, seriously:


    A Man does not store his testicles in his wife's purse . . .

    A Man has full control over his phallus; rather than, the reverse . . .

    A Man has full cognizance of the severe-damage done to his being, upon the slightest prevarication.

    A "Real" Man takes responsibility for his actions, denying / excusing nothing; and has unwavering ability, to Conform-His-Cognition-to-Reality !

    With that definition, Mother Theresa, Rigoberta Menchu and Golda Meir would fit too. You can suck off Jesus and Buddha all you like.

    Thanks but no thanks. I'll stick to MMA fighters. .

    Everyone's definition is different.

    Mine is, a person born with male genitals, who identifies as male, and fits societies standards of male in appearance and acting for the most part. There is some wiggle room there for some gay attributes. As long as he doesn't dress like a woman and pretend/try to be a woman.

    As for masculine, I would say confidence, but that's a whole other story.

    I know it's not perfect, but it does separate from woman, and transgender.

    I think even the most feminine man is still a man. All males with a penis and balls pretty much. Now a masculine man is another conversation.
