how stupid can you get?
2001-10-12 10:22:38 AM  
For all men everywhere... cool.

Let's all go eat raw meat and shoot things.

I find all of today's sexist articles to be pretty offensive. And so freakin' stupid.
2001-10-12 10:28:49 AM  
I didn't even get to read about manly men... all the god crap at the beginning made me sick.
2001-10-12 10:30:44 AM  
This article is right on the money. It's not sexist, it's a recognition of a certain kind of man being appreciated again. And it's true. If you're a fire-fighter in New York right now, women are THROWING themselves at you. We all know this. We've all read the article.

I, for one, applaud this article, largely because I've noticed it's true. Women today notice and appreciate "gentlemanly" behaviour, and tend to go more for "masculine" guys. Expressing your feelings with a woman is a great way to get a best friend, but a terrible way to find a mate.

Anyway, school calls. I'm going to go flirt by taking off my shirt, rippling my huge muscles, and moving some debris. Ciao.
2001-10-12 10:30:51 AM  
I am soo manly, I likes my womens manly too....
2001-10-12 10:32:17 AM  
Let that be a lesson to those of you who HIDE behind a computer monitor, and call that work.............
2001-10-12 10:32:20 AM  
Still doesn't change the fact that Drudge is tabloid radio at best. Ugh.
2001-10-12 10:34:41 AM  
Radio? Drudge has a radio site? And this isn't even on Drudge's site, I linked to it off of his site.

Oh, this is my first article submitted.
2001-10-12 10:34:59 AM  
I find the link between macho and homo-eroticism inherently amusing.
2001-10-12 10:35:35 AM  
That was fine.
2001-10-12 10:37:13 AM  
I find it very amusing when people denouce drudge when over 90% of the time he just links to other articles much like fark.

silly liberals
2001-10-12 10:37:59 AM  
Goat, if you see a fireman and think homo-erotic thoughts, it's less likely a link with machismo and more likely that you're gay.
2001-10-12 10:38:43 AM  
Oh, this is so sickening. So scarey. By the way, I farked God last night and she came three times!
2001-10-12 10:41:37 AM  
A real woman will appreciate "gentlemanly" behavior, as my wife did. From the day I met her, I always opened her car door, along with any other door she may run into. She has always appreciated it, and her friends are constantly telling her how jealous they are of her "manly man". Oh, and she's also glad that I don't wear "sissy boy" (her words) clothes, and I don't put gel in my hair.
I shoot guns, drive a truck, spit when I need to (not in the presence of women), stand when a woman enters a room, treat women with the utmost respect, say "Yes Ma'am", and open doors for them. That's what being a Gentleman is all about. I do it not because it's manly, but because it's the right thing to do.
2001-10-12 10:43:18 AM  
I want to go eat grunt, sweat and eat some potted beef products...
2001-10-12 10:43:48 AM  
Holy crap that article was long. So i'll do what everyone else does and read the comments and base my opinion on them (Dont say you've never do that.)

Bah this woman is on crack. She is so sexist. And Drudge is such a BS website/radio/etc.
2001-10-12 10:44:07 AM  
or maybe not eat grunt, just grunt, unless grunt is some form of potted beef product
2001-10-12 10:46:10 AM  
Bejamin: It's not the thinking of homo-erotic thoughts I'm talking about, it's the fact that the image of "Real Men" is often used in a homo-erotic manner, eg WWF, Wham!, Village People etc.

Especially WWF - I like watching the fans trying to be all cool and hard, completely oblivious of how camp the whole thing is. It's even better when they start slagging off "fags"
2001-10-12 10:46:45 AM  
Is this man now the King of Style ?
[image from too old to be available]
2001-10-12 10:48:36 AM  

If your wife keeps runnig into doors, you might want to take her to get her depth perception checked, she could be a serious hazard on the road...
2001-10-12 10:50:26 AM  
Ms. Noonan is a raving psychopath... with statements like "Good vs. Evil" and "God is Back" and trying to draw conclusive evidence from the devil-face and the cross... I want to send her the complete "God-man" series by Ruben Bolling.

damnit, link

How glorious to see you feminists and wussy boys all get your collective panties into a big vagina-flavored bundle because an article dared sing the virtues of tough men!

2001-10-12 10:53:13 AM  
I am a fool, someone delete this crap please
2001-10-12 10:54:33 AM  
doesn't that just make your testicles swell with pride?
2001-10-12 10:55:06 AM  
This article's author must have been on drugs! I've seen better written articles by high-school kids.
2001-10-12 10:55:14 AM  
I agree with LUPA. "Raving psychopath" is a bit strong, but what can you say about a mother who tells her children that there was a devil's face in the smoke of the rubble? Sheesh, whatever happened to looking for duckies and sailboats in the clouds? This woman scares me.
2001-10-12 10:55:16 AM  
sissy boys can open doors and stuff too.. why does a man have to be all rough and gruff to be polite?
2001-10-12 10:57:01 AM  
"feminists and wussy boys all get your collective panties into a big vagina-flavored bundle..." Ohh yum, sounds like a party to me.
2001-10-12 10:58:08 AM  
Manly men are back in style? Ok somebody tell me when short skinny men had all the women going nuts, because I missed out!
2001-10-12 10:58:14 AM  
And you say FEMINIST like it's a bad word! The whole thing behind being a feminist is that you want women to be equal to men. Yes, I know there are differences between men and women but there are some places that women should be equal. Like getting equal pay for equal work.
2001-10-12 11:01:24 AM  
I must say, I think that that is also one of the most pretentious articles I've read on Fark. Business classes gaining respect for the working classes for fvcks' sake...
2001-10-12 11:01:48 AM  
She maybe slightly "Special" But don't you think she kinda has a point? I mean it is true the guys that are fighting for and protecting our country are the blue collar type of guys. Men whose hands have seen Manual labor and like it. We need more people like this in our country not a bunch of pansy ass lawyers who are useless for anything but suing the enemy. Fark Lawyers, White Collar Pansies and Chicken shiat assholes who won't lift a finger to help.
2001-10-12 11:03:03 AM  
Fuzzy-- LOL!
Thirdrail-- you have a point there...
Vilainefemme-- don't go getting your panties in a bunch! ;) :p
2001-10-12 11:05:32 AM  
FishBulb watches as this thread tears down in flames with all the 'liberal' name calling and 'feminist' rhetoric spewing. JOY!
2001-10-12 11:06:36 AM  
I embarrassed a nice man who was attempting to help a lady. I wasn't lady enough to let him. I bet he never offered to help a lady again. I bet he became an intellectual, or a writer, and not a good man like a fireman or a businessman who says, "Let's roll."

As much as I appreciate the gist of the message she's trying to convey, I'll have to agree with LUPA: This woman is quite clearly insane.

So men, if you're ever hanging out and some shark tries to munch on your woman, be sure to kick its ass.

And a m00se 0nce bit my sister...
2001-10-12 11:08:51 AM  
This broad's on the heavy juice. Nice to see the intellientsia get their faces slapped by reality, and awaken to what everybody else already knows. Still, she disparages 'them' as grunts. So now they're good enough to eat, huh? What a hypocrite.

Having said that, I wanna go and smake a Marlboro while I take my mighty steed out and ride the fence line.

Who says you can't be an educated, highly paid professional, and simultaneously laugh at GQ and get sweaty and muddy and grunt?

These people need to get out of the ivory tower more often.
2001-10-12 11:08:56 AM  
List of guys who are 'Manly men':
Soldiers & Marines
(Grudgingly - heh heh): Sailors, Airmen, & Coasties
Construction Workers
Truck Drivers
Professional Sports (not the thugs who get arrested every other week, but the ones who do their job and quietly support charities, do community service, etc) Athletes
and catch-all:
guys who are "quiet heroes" who go to work every day, (help) provide for their families, (help) with child-rearing, housework, etc., are polite to ladies, children & the elderly and never expect any special recognition for it because that's the way things should be.
[the reason for "(help)" is because women work, too, and men should not expect women to do all the household stuff -
This is as close to PC as you will ever see me get.]

I think real men know it and consequently don't feel the need to bolster their insecurities or massage their egos.

But I also think she's right. Time to get naked and punch something.
2001-10-12 11:10:13 AM  
She completely has a point. hasn't anyone heard the stories about firefighters being the easiest lay in NYC now?

as for the religious crap, she was pointing out that reliogious people were seeing the symbolism in those things - as they are wont to do. No biggie.

Geez, people. i like arguing as much as rhe next medium-sized city of guys does, but really.....
2001-10-12 11:12:44 AM  
I'm really glad that her kids are growin up sane, because she certainly isn't. And what's wrong with intellectuals? They're the ones that made the materials that keep the "Good Men" from killing themselves when they run into a fire to save people. They are also the people who invented the firetruck.

If the entire world was made of "Good Men" we would still be running around in manly loinclothes killing animals.
2001-10-12 11:17:39 AM  
The "manly man" has never gone out of style in the world, as far as I know.

Otherwise I'd not be getting laid.
2001-10-12 11:18:20 AM  
How do you know I'm even wearing any? :)

Sorry for ranting, I'm in a crabby mood. I don't have the patience to clean off old computers without using the mouse.
2001-10-12 11:20:59 AM  
Yeah, but it's even more in style now than it was.

'Manly men' aren't just in style at the moment, they're uber-men!
2001-10-12 11:22:11 AM  
Vilainefemme-- :o

2001-10-12 11:22:46 AM  
Good point Statusquo- and while we're at it, let's remember, boys or girls-- we're all hunched over a computer somewhere, typing away--real tough. The ppl here that really want to be 'manly men' can go off pounding their chests into the woods for all I care. In fact, I really wish they would. There are all types of 'real men' and like someone said above, they don't nead to be reminded all the time. They do their thing, and don't sit around biatching about how they are the victims of feminism and shiat.
2001-10-12 11:22:57 AM  
"So the shark let go of his wife and went straight for him. And it killed him. The wife survived to tell the story of what her husband had done. He had tried to deck the shark. I told my friends: That's what a wonderful man is, a man who will try to deck the shark."

Remember, a gentleman always sacrifices his life for a lady.
Anyone else notice that her sources were tabloids?
2001-10-12 11:24:47 AM  
Drudge *IS* a tabloid.
