So while at work I was bored and I stumbled upon the following uhhh net notice, http://men.msn.com/articlemh.aspx?cp-documentid=6939112&GT1=32001.

This article is simple enough, it outlines what some idiot journalist thinks are things men should not own. Now I do not know why I read these things, probably to find a reasons to justify my hatred of humanity. Anyway that aside, I read this article and for about 70% got sick to my stomach. I mean honestly who spreads these lies? Better yet who the hell comes up with them?

I honestly do not know what the world is coming too? Do Americans have such an identity crisis that we have to make up stuff like this? Whatever happened to doing what you wanted to do, within legal reason? Whatever happened to being unique? Whatever happened to all this bullshit I was fed during my adolescent years?

Anyway thoughts?

If you have a similar article that has a similar list for females or a different list for males please feel free to message it to me and I will add it to the list of articles.

"a name for his penis"




mines name is Thor

i guess it is pretty stupid article, but its not that those things are "unmanly," they're just childish. i don't see anything wrong with having an inner child, as long as you can still handle yourself like an adult.

Apparently, then again my dad, who is 50, is not a grown man either. Stupid people and trying to make men hate life....

XD

That is why men get jobs and wives, to keep them from what they like.

5. A key chain with a bottle opener. This bauble is both a gauche reminder of your college days and proof that you don't know how to apply leverage using available, impromptu bottle openers: a lighter, the back end of a fork.

Hmmm, I had a key chain with a bottle opener during my early teen years (everyone of my friends had a bottle opener in her purse )but that was before they starting putting plastic twist off tops on pop bottles and so many guys failed to return the bottle openers they borrowed from us. Mine was a coca cola bottle opener with rhinestones,my friends had pink or mauve bottle openers yet the guys never returned what they borrowed. Can someone explain that, did they really forget to return them or scatched the paint off so they could keep them?


7. An unstamped passport.

I'm not impressed by a guy showing he is well traveled as it means he is not available since he is never in the country. I don't want to talk to an answering machine or get a call at 3am from some unheard of village because the rates are cheaper at that time. Some men and women who are well traveled tend to flaunt this as a right of passage into adulthood which I find is just arrogant. I disagree with this point.

16. A secret handshake.

Why not, if my friends and my daughter have secret messages that we send to each other in front of very confused guys who can't figure out what the eye rolling, random hand gestures, or amused look means? Girls have a secret unspoken language that most men have been trying to solve for years without sucess so how is different from the hidden meaning in your odd handshakes?

There are so many articles that tell how a girl can read a guys mind from his body language out there but half the time we don't want to know what you are thinking in case is it is something perverse. We don't want to know everything so why read an article that is not useful or important? I hate articles in womens magazines that tell how to salvage burnt toast,cook the perfect omelet,how to get him to take out the trash, how to make everyone like you, etc, and don't care for men who are touch with their feminine sides. I don't want to see a man in a skirt or a man who carrys a murse- a man purse. There is just so much garbage in those magazines and the advice is either outdated or bizarre.

Hm, I agree with most of these, except for the cheap beer one. I love cheap beer in my man's (empty) fridge.
