"Yes, unless that baby is actually suckling off of your breast you are very much a man! If not then even manlier that you are gardening with your baby attached."

"     Exactly.      Like anything else, it's a time money trade-off. Once you get beyond a certain size, you'd better rent or own a tractor. After all, doesn't matter how much of a hammer swingin'…"

"I think so; I enjoy the whole package, agriculture, herbalism and botany. As Karl said, self-sufficiency is manly."

"Fair enough.  I was thinking more "pruning with a chainsaw" or "tilling with a backhoe".  But, I'm not much of a gardener, anyway. JB"

"Heading out in the morning. Hoping to get to the Saltlick by 11, fill up on BBQ, then go backroads up to Fredericksburg, get some wine, then meander slowly on home looking at the flowers."

"Gardening is also a part of farming. There's alot of edible plants and flowers. So gardening is in my opinion manly because it could help you become self-sustained or survive in the wild."

""... though power tools can make most anything manlier.  Garden with horsepower.  Overkill is underrated." Rototillers are for pussies afraid of hard work, sweat and blisters. Pick, shovel and spade all the way, say I."

""Possibly" on the gardening -- though power tools can make most anything manlier.   I'm going to go with "no" on the breastfeeding baby sling, though.  No way I'd've worn one of those.   JB"

Young guys

hey guys, I have been interested in the MKP for a few years now and even began pursuing my dream of attending a weekend. After many emails back and forth as well as a few phone calls with an influential guy there (who was very nice) I was politely told that the weekend is more for older guys and while there are annual meetings in my area, in which guys get together at a local church and further share and bond, because of the nature of these meetings (they discuss feelings and their deepest…See More

"I have instructed my wife that my body is to be donated to a local science program, so that I may forever be fondled by young coeds. Okay, cut the fondling part. My body is to be donated to a school for up and coming students, though."
