Penis-touching was heavily weighted, allowing the top states you see listed.

It is a near-perfect list of cities I would not want to live to those I would.
 
2012-07-15 12:26:48 PM  
Most of the cities at the top of the list also have a high number of violent crimes.
Coincidence?
 
2012-07-15 12:34:49 PM  
Is this BadAssery or FatAssery?

One may never know.
 
2012-07-15 12:47:08 PM  
Ohio sounds fat.

I'd like to see a list of American's Most Feminine Cities but people might scream "sexism" or "homophobia".
 
2012-07-15 12:58:55 PM  
The cities at the bottom of the list are the ones I'd most likely visit or live in.
 
2012-07-15 01:08:54 PM  
17. New Orleans, LA (▲ 5 spots)

Huh? New Olreans is one of the gayest cities in America. Maybe next to San Francisco, the most gay friendly city out there (don't get me wrong, this is a good thing.)

We're a party city for sure. A gay city for sure. Manly? no.

Some gay men are quite butch.

Why are these studies not done on a per capita basis?

GAT_00: Why are these studies not done on a per capita basis?


From RTFA:

The rankings were determined using 50 of the largest metropolitan areas as defined by the United States Census Bureau, which includes a central city and the surrounding county (or counties). All data was adjusted by the current population to arrive at 'per capita' figures, providing an accurate comparison between cities of varying sizes

Well, I missed that. Lots of times these aren't done per capita.

The amount of whining and moaning that comes from some guys regarding eating raw fish.

Man up pansies.

I've seen people I know bit the head off a live perch(stupid ice fishing tradition) that refused to even consider eating sushi
 
2012-07-15 02:02:12 PM  
Is it bad that I'm glad my city isn't in the top 40?

And is #2 for "unmanliness?"

Seriously, another example of insecure straight dudes making themselves a laughingstock.

thamike: Only real men eat Combos?


There was a time when I LOVED Combos.

In school, some nights -- usually after a midterm -- I'd just pig out on Combos and beer.

Charlotte, #2 has at least one murder a day.
 
2012-07-15 02:47:36 PM  
No way can this list be considered legitimate with San Francisco on it. There isn't a single farking gun shop in that city.
 
2012-07-15 02:48:32 PM  
How the f*ck was Portland listed above Seattle?
 
2012-07-15 02:51:22 PM  
What if I like BBQ AND sushi?
 
2012-07-15 02:52:21 PM  
I feel dumber now.
 
2012-07-15 02:52:40 PM  
I am to believe that San Antonio doesn't have enough BBQ or rodeos to make this list? Someone has pants that are on fire!
 
2012-07-15 02:54:37 PM  
Wow, I remember hearing about this a couple months ago on the radio show that notoriously would rehash every interesting bit of news that was on FARK the night before. So I assume that this was submitted already.
 
2012-07-15 02:55:15 PM  
Yeah, I would prefer to live in the lower reaches of the list too. Even if not in the abstract, specifically because of rankings like this. I do not respond well to talk about 'man cards' or whatever the fark.
 
2012-07-15 02:56:53 PM  

DarkPascual: What if I like BBQ AND sushi?


Then you're inherently unhappy and are not allowed to adopt, I think.
 
2012-07-15 02:57:07 PM  
Lists like this always remind me of a list of photos my buddy and I came up with as a joke to this sort of 'manliness' . It's some dude party of d-bags or frat members of some kind (no girls). The first one is them just hanging out drinking beer talking, the next one is them smiling, telling jokes, laughing. The next one is them woooing, getting kinda drunk, shoving each other, dancing around. The last one is just them rolling around the floor, drunk, with their shirts off, some of their pants are coming off. nttawwt, it's just kinda funny when it's douchey closet types that declare to be so manly.
/glad to see my area is low on the lists

The Combos® brand understands that Americans take great pride in their hometowns. The Combos® brand believes that Real Manly Americans should eat nothing but Combos® brand snacks and baked goods. Therefore, the Combos® brand is taking steps to build walls around the Top Ten Manliest Cities, filling those cities with Combos® brand snacks and baked goods, and filming the resulting Manly Shenanigans as different factions of Manly Men band together to hoard the dwindling supplies of Combos® brand snacks and baked goods. The Combos® brand will reward the last Manly City left with a living population a Manly Prize of a free BBQ Rodeo, including grilled Combos® brand snacks and baked goods, Combos® brand-themed trucks and motorcycles, and guns that shoot Combos® brand snacks and baked goods.

Tune in to the Combos® brand Manly Shenanigans Reality Show today!

I think it's the top 50 metro areas based on population, but hey I read TFA.
 
2012-07-15 02:58:01 PM  
Once again, Americans confuse "manliness" with "being a dudebro moron". Ya know what's manly? Reading, thinking, handling your responsibilities, being an adult, attempting to contribute something positive. Ya know what's not manly? Sitting on your fat ass all day shoveling pork rinds and hot wings into your gaping maw while watching a bunch of overpaid jocks throw a ball around.
 
2012-07-15 02:59:42 PM  
Dallas used to be higher on this list until we had a shiatload of refugees from California come here. Now there's sushi, wine bars and acupuncture every couple of miles.

Although I do appreciate that they've raised the bar on seafood joints.

Maul555: I am to believe that San Antonio doesn't have enough BBQ or rodeos to make this list? Someone has pants that are on fire!


Manliness, not a measure of Hombría.

The_Sponge: How the f*ck was Portland listed above Seattle?


I was wondering how it beat the hell out of San Diego so much with their massive military presence. Maybe they counted all the sailors against SD?

Maybe they figured in the people from Chalmette.
 
2012-07-15 03:01:03 PM  
So "manly" means obese and braindead now. Good to know.

Maul555: I am to believe that San Antonio doesn't have enough BBQ or rodeos to make this list? Someone has pants that are on fire!


San Antonio doesn't have sports other than the NBA team. Not even any decent college sports. And San Antonio, of course, is awesome.

That website needs to look up the definition of "best." All of those cities in the top 10, with the possible exception of Nashville (college town, state capital, so plenty of intellectuals and artists) are just awful.
 
2012-07-15 03:02:39 PM  
The top ten reads like a "Who's Who Among Welfare Cheats, Wife Beaters, and Wingnuts":

1.Nashville, TN (▲ 3 spots)
2.Charlotte, NC (▼ 1 spot)
3.Oklahoma City, OK (▲ 22 spots)
4.Memphis, TN (▲ 24 spots)
5.Columbia, SC (▲ 8 spots)
6.Cleveland, OH (▲ 9 spots)
7.Birmingham, AL (▲ 11 spots)
8.Milwaukee, WI (▼ 2 spots)
9.Houston, TX (▲ 15 spots)
10.St. Louis, MO (▲ 2 spots)

Did they count the number of clogged toilets and cases of megacolon?

Whoo! We're #10!
 
2012-07-15 03:04:11 PM  
Just because it's not stereotypically "manly" doesn't mean it's emasculating.

There may be some larger issues going on here independent of the article.
 
2012-07-15 03:04:29 PM  
Survival skills and ability to shoot back not on the list? I guess bestplaces.net isn't manly enough to go to Stockton, CA.
 
2012-07-15 03:04:30 PM  
I noticed that lists like this always define manliness as "things American white guys like". Apparently brown people and foreigners are incapable of manliness.
 
2012-07-15 03:04:41 PM  
YAY! We (Buffalo) are still on a list of the top 50 largest metropolitan areas! YAY!
/76th largest US city, according to census.
 
2012-07-15 03:04:42 PM  
I'm ashamed that Milwaukee achieved #8.
 
2012-07-15 03:05:00 PM  
I am offically dumber for having read that. Thanks for nothing, subby/Combos advocate!
 
2012-07-15 03:06:17 PM  
Wait - this was done at the request of a snack manufacturer? Really?

Combos® is a product in this business category.

And, arguably, one of the nastier snacks in the category.

Fark you, Combos®. Seriously, fark you. It's moron marketing stunts like this that make folks like me stop buying shiat.

If that were the case though Nashville and Memphis would be flipped.
