I agree with Andy, public spitting is rude and anti-social.
Where is it in the man-ual that being a man meant being rude and boorish?
And the roads are full of men driving spanking clean, huge trucks, to make up for deficiencies they have obviously elsewhere.
Don't buy that one either.
IMHO man-ness comes not from what one wears, does or drives, but the manner in which one goes about his life.
Anyone can buy a truck, but say you had to buy a truck because you got some city kids together and started a community garden, and all of a sudden you needed a truck to regularly bring in manure from a farmer you've made acquaintance with; I would say that's manly.
Much prefer that list.
I agree with your list as well A.C, I believe more could be added also.
I like your list A.C.. All good goals!
1 - yes
2 - definitely
3 - maybe?
4 - no. Ball caps look childish, and white trash, I think.
5 - See number 4.
6 - No. No no nonono.
7 - Yes
8 - See 4.
9 - Four
10 - Four
I do not see these "habits" as masculine. Why? Are you from the South? It seems like a very stereotypical image of a Southerner.
I would say a man should be put together, and dressed in his best for society. In addition, he drives a car suited to himself, not necessarily because "men" buy it.
And spitting is just rude. If you are a baseball player in a dugout, or perhaps a 10-year old boy, but a grown adult man? No thank you.
