Lumberjack ARE pretty manly
I'm a lumberjack and I'm OK
I sleep all night and I work all day.
I cut down trees, I eat my lunch
I go to the lavatory.
On Wednesdays I go shopping and have buttered scones for tea
I cut down trees, I skip and jump
I like to press wild flowers.
I put on women's clothing and hang around in bars.
I cut down trees, I wear high heels
Suspendies and a bra.
I wish I'd been a girlie, just like my dear pappa.
I was just having a conversation with someone I traditionally classify as an alpha male. Military-based, womanizer, physically well-built, heavy drinker/socializer.
We were having a chat about his latest conquests and mentioned she was a sex toy salesperson (or something like that). I jokingly suggested she try a strap on on him. I think that's only fair because if he expects to penetrate her rectum, she should be able to return the favor. This, however, sparked the phrase "I am a man, I will not bend over, I won't be taken".
That got me thinking (and very mad as a consequence), am I any less of a man because I bottom/take it? Needless to say I couldn't humor his stories of "conquering" another woman (which I normally find riveting) anymore so I just politely bagged out of the conversation.
What characteristics do you define "masculine" as having?
