    I've always liked that term. I get a little mind-boner every time I hear it. What is your interpretation of what that means, and would you describe yourself as a man's man, and why?

    Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. V

    gidopey saidThere was an Egyptian Pharaoh who was described as: Every Woman's man and every Man's woman.

    Actually it was the Roman Julius Caesar. Or perhaps both of them, but definitely Caesar.

    Gaius Suetonius Tranquillus (aka Suetonius), "Twelve Caesars," speaking of Julius Caesar: "But to remove all doubt that he had an evil reputation both for shameless vice and for adultery (impudicitae et adulteriorum), I have only to add that the elder Curio in one of his speeches calls him "every woman's man and every man's woman"

    A man's man is one that doesn't make an issue out of things, doesn't fuss over appearance or manners (not to say that they don't have manners or good hygiene), don't mind farts or BO, don't worry about getting hurt when horsing around (physically confident), not afraid of fights, generally into sports, tools, outdoor stuff, barbecue.

    I'm a man's man most of the time. Almost nothing riles me up or gets me upset, and I'm set on doing what I like, never mind what others think. But I do watch my diet or appearance and care a little bit about manners.

    I think that a man's man is supposed to mean a guy who is masculine. But, of course, in the gay community, it can have all sorts of positive connotations.

    gidopey said I also have been accused of being a Lesbian since I dress in jeans and plaid shirts a lot.


    mmm I love plaid. Being a man's man depends on the man your with.

    I don't really know what the term means.. Back in the day it may have been considered a term to represent people who stand true to their word, men of integrity and chivalry.

    it doesn't mean that any more,and not necessarily because men have changed (which they have, nothing is spared from change), but because the term is obsolete and irrelevant.

    Were it to ever be used to refer to Macho men. Then i am not a big fan of that at all. But that's just me.

    On the list of things I'd write about myself on the bathroom wall, "man's man" is right up there with "vers." and "...is a cocksucker; call..."

    I guess I could be considered a Man's man. Im not afraid of gettin dirty (though cleaning up after is so very awesome too). Masculine enough to fool people to think I am straight, in gay bars too. Never really thought about it that way. Im glad Im not flamboyant (nothing at all against anyone who is, but I prefer the masculine side over the effeminate.). The personality trait of said description is very attractive. A tall, dark and handsome man's-man. icon_razz.gif

    I am a cougar's cougar. I am passionate about & on my man, if that makes any sense.
    I like masculine man with communication skills , not into wooden or the one's that are made from cement that can not vocalize themselves . Makes you feel like dealing with Ice Age Homo Erectus or Homo Neanderthalis.

    Not racist against these two, though. Just a preference!

    Look up the term or definition of Stromo and you have me. My picture is there.

    I'm not a flamer, my voice isn't high pitched, I can't decorate a room and I have no fashion sense.

    The fact I don't have gaydar and can't dance doesn't play into it, but I thought I would point out I'm screwed all the way around. LOL

    I almost don't consider myself gay, but homosexual. I love sex with men, always have, always will and my family and friends accept that fact.

    HEY, I DO LOVE CHIC FLIX. SOOOO WHO KNOWS....

    I too would raise my thumbs up but they are kinda of sore from my knuckles dragging on the ground. And I thought all gay men were Homo Erect? icon_razz.gif


    Why are you straining your precious knuckles on the ground? There are other useful things to use them for. icon_smile.gif

    All people are " Homo "s in latin language, meaning " humans " in Anglo-saxon language. Lol. Almost all men are homos with an erection, but some of us do belong to the group of our extinct brethren " Homo Erectus "icon_sad.gif

    I've always thought of the phrase "a man's man" to mean someone that can relate well with other men, a man that other men can share things with, someone you'd like to be brother buddies with. Almost like a bromance. And I guess masculinity plays a part in it.

    But then again, my mind-boner comes from thinking deeper into it. Like a man that knows and wants to fulfill another man's needs.

    One of my straight friends calls me a man's man. I think it's hilarious but it's probably because I dress casual, love football and baseball, I kick ass in fantasy football every year, I talk butch and I don't mind getting my hands dirty and stuff like that.

    I'm curious to know how many Gay men find a man's man attractive.

    A man's man is the kind of guy who has manners, assertivness, courage and respect for people. He's the kind of guy that doesn't laugh at idiotic jokes and avoids loudmouths. He gets that title not from lifting a million pounds at the gym, but rather lifting the spirits of the people around him......men, women and children.

    He doesn't get offended easily by the negative comments of the insecure and he probably laughs at the description " a man's man". While most people need to blab on and on in order to say something, he simply makes a gesture, or a look, and gets his point across.

    He's the perfect guy to go fishing with.

    Now I've been told I'm a mans man, from about 21, and your still a boy at 21. But I've never called myself one.

    But If I go by your definition, then hell yer I'm a mans man, and proud of it too.icon_wink.gif

    Best definition I've ever heard. It's amusing how half the guys on here are listing qualities about being "butch" or "not gay". If you feel the need to brag out how macho you are, chances are you're not a man's man.
