"Manly (straight) display of affection = one upmanship. A good ribbing. Light joking at a character flaw. My uncle (that I lost in December) used to give me shit about drinking watermelon gatorade. My Uncle: "That pink shit you're drinking…"

Sir replied to Mongoose's discussion Methinks "Manly" is a Misnomer?
"I am not sure they exist, but if they do: are they right? These definitions say they aren't. If people think it's honorable to lie, cheat, and steal, this doesn't redefine "honorable," but only shows their lack of it."
