I agree with nothing on this list. It's nothing but some idiot who tried to make his opinion look like fact.

I could go on, but I have to get ready - my (male) friend is taking me out to dinner (his treat, his ride, his money) and I can’t wait for him to see my short, unfeminine-yet-oh-so-womanly, close-cropped hair. Short hair isn't for the boys anymore

Smoking - used to be bad-ass. Now it’s bad for you and people are trying to outlaw it. Oh well.

Drinking - used to be bad-ass. Now anyone who can hold their liquor is called an alcoholic. Who would have thought?

It used to be manly to be successful in a corporate or commercial setting. Now it’s all about the pretty people, or the ones with the most savvy. Cowboys used to be manly. Being gangster (not gangsta, I’m talking Old Mob Gangster - 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s - Al Capone and Lupkey and Dopey) used to be manly. Now you have these posers from New York who think that wearing G-Unit and busting a rhyme on the sidewalk means you’re rough. Government agents (of the .007 variety) used to be manly - the James Bond men once ruled supreme in the field of masculinity. Now we’re suspicious of them tapping our phones and reading our e-mails.

Shooting people? That’s the pussy’s way out, these days. You don’t have to get close to your opponent, you’re not looking in the eye, and unless he has an Uzi, he definitely has less of a chance of killing you. Guns are the woman’s method of choice too. Try googling Margret Rudin. She’s just one example.

What about stabbing people? Nicking someone’s finger with a penknife is not manly. Waving a machete at someone is just plain insane. A perfectly good rumble is still manly. Switchblades are still tokens of manhood, and fathers still give their sons knives when they come of age.

Leather. Leather is still manly. It’s rugged, very sexual, and daring. What is unmanly is pleather, or PVC. Need I say more?

You forgot the muscle cars. One upon a time, the Mustang and the Jaguar were symbols of prosperity, masculinity, and the American Dream. Now, you still find them in possession of America’s Golden Boys, but they’re the children of the people who chased the American Dream, the ones who were born with a silver foot in their mouths. The wusses who wouldn’t last more than two minutes in an actual street fight.

Moving on. Now we come to motorcycles. No, a Yamaha is not manly - it’s a Japanese brand, no way in hell it’d be manly. The Japanese have always had an association with androgyny (kabuki theatre, anyone?) A Harley can still be manly, depends on how it’s ridden and who is doing the riding. Just because the man in the seat is not manly, does not make the muscle-bike any less a man symbol. You see a Harley, you still expect to see a grizzled old biker there.

Now, about Chivalry - speaking as a woman (for I am female) I understand that many women these days would rather be seen as one of the guys - except prettier and with big boobs. But by all means, this does not account for a majority of the population. Just because we don’t respond like Snow White did to Prince Charming in the Disney animated moving picture, does not mean we’re not looking for honor and loyalty. However, we’re wise enough these days to know that being “courted” is a means to an end. Few men are chivalrous for chivalry’s sake - or even know what chivalry means. Chivalry was the idea of valuing a woman’s virtue, purity and loveliness - this means, if a man was chivalrous, he’d never think of spoiling her with untoward advances, or even impure thoughts. So Chivalry is not a means to sex, love, and happily ever after. Chivalry is the art of restraint. A chivalrous man would protect his chosen woman, but never think of marrying

You can tell the difference between a “manly” tattoo and a “non-manly tattoo” I am pretty sure. At least I hope you can. If you can’t, at least keep your mouth shut.
Multiple piercings - it was never about the amount of the piercings involved. It was how obviously they opposed whatever was generally accepted. Now people are stretching out their earlobes and studding up their faces to garner attention. That’s not manly. But like the tattoo, it’s easy to tell the difference between a manly piercing and a non-manly piercing.

Okay, that’s really wrong. That’s very wrong.

"I agree about chivalry.
Reason I took a vow of celibacy."

That and no one will sleep with you, right?
j/k, don't take that seriously.

Anyways, here’s what I think:

Tattoos: Nothing wrong with them unless you’re some dope who just picks a design from the wall. Getting something unique that means something to you is the whole point.

Piercing: I always thought they looked fem.

Stabbing: Something being phallic makes it less manly? I thought the idea of sticking something in someone until they die was the epitome of the male ego.

Motorcycles: They’re still manly if you work on them yourself.

Leather: Only non-manly if you wear the Mr. Slave outfit or something.

Chivalry: Only non-manly if you’re in high school. More mature women appreciate a decent charming guy. Plus it can get you laid and what’s manlier than that?

lol I am so not manly... that's all the things I love, but then again, I come from another country, those things are still not uncool... plus, it all depends who, how, and whatever... like, some tatoos can still be cool if well... the tattoo has some meaning... bikes now require speed to be manly... and stabing (one of my favorite past times) is cool if you do it in a cool way (is pretty much the KNIFE itself had become uncool, not so much the stabing... with a samurai sword, in an awsome sword fight or something... still cool... but not if you use it in a pussy kind of way, like "crap, I can't take this guy- stab- job's done" no no no... stabing can be cool... ninjas (and snake) stabing people is still cool, but using a sword makes it much better)

this is so true, it's actually kind of sad. the thing is there are two people who are into stuff like this, the people who really know it, and people who see the first type and say, 'wow he's cool imma be like him'.

eg. stabbing - originally psycho masterminds, now 14 year old gangstas.
same sort of thing with bikes, piercings, tattoos... not chivalry, it's dead guys, sorry. best way to get a girl = don't be a weightlifting douchebag, don't be a romantic douchebag, be normal. care but don't worship.

Chivalry is the new counter culture.
