    I once was a male stuck inside a female's body,

    then I was born. LOL Luckily I grew to be a man, not an overgrown boy. Or it could be looked at as unluckily, with so many overgrown boys doing stupid ****, real men have it rough trying to straighten everything out, especially between men and women.

    I am definitely a man. But how manly I am depends on you. I would never intone to be a man's man.  I wouldn't want to be.  No, I prefer to be a ladies man. Now, if it's based on the old saying, you are what you eat, it's a whole different perspective. If it's based...

    Ok, I'm not wearing tights, but I am a man.  I enjoy being a man.  It gives me an excuse not to have the answers to everything, not to have to listen to everything that's said to me, and not to remember every single birthday of every friend I ever had.  Of course I...

    What Does It Mean To Be A Man ??

    Every once in a while I receive an e-mail that is quirky and laced with hidden truths. Obviously it is tongue-in-cheek but this one is wonderfully written. I did try looking up "Lebowski" and quotes by him and only found the last one. I am therefore unable to rightfully credit...

    The difference between dating a boy

    and a man. 1) A man knows what he wants, and goes for it. A boy may have somewhat of an idea, but not really. He doesn’t think too much about it, and even if he does, doesn’t exert much effort to get it. A boy is passive, a man is assertive. 2) A man plans for his future...

    In no way am I saying that I'm perfect or that I meet everything I'm about to say, but this is something that every man should aspire to. I know that as I grow I'm finding that all these things are true. A Man is the following: He has integrity, he is tough, he is compassionate...

    As a young black man I feel like it's my responsibility to share this young brothers story to as many people as possible. We all have this concept of what's "manly", but can men care for once and really sympathize with someone? Here's what I have to say. On a recent trip...

    Sometimes I Hate Being A Man.

    I am a man, a middle aged man, at one of the worst times, in Amarican history, to be a man. I am 47, overweight, and male. I love breasts too. At the moment it is illegal where I work and go to school-the same place-to undress someone with your eyes. I am damned fortunate...

    I'm a Man. I've heard

    so many people say that gays aren't "real" men, well I say I am. I work as Woodsman, I am tough and I am honest and I am brave and I am kind. I try to live every day of my life with integrity. I am gay, and I am a man in every way I feel counts.

    honestly I think being a man is

    so much easier because we have all heard about girls on their period, birth, vagina diseases, fungus etc. Of course we can get basically the same thing but women have a higher chance than us men.
