I tend to agree with John Sherrill's summation: "...being a gentleman means putting the good of others before your own."
However, I also think gentlemanliness is only one facet of being a man; it pertains specifically to how a man interacts with other people, which can be somewhat superficial. While it's great to strive to be a gentleman, we should be careful to remember that this is only one aspect of manliness.
I've been thinking about this kind of group for a long time and I'd like to share my own stories along with other people's stories about their body modification experiences. Please keep it clean and use only acceptable responses.
