    To Smart to Be Macho

    I do not like guns, or killing things.  I am not interested in sports, cars, or drink beer.  I do not care who can spit the farthest or fart the loudest or smell the worst.  I would much rather walk away from a fight and lose face than stay and fight and lose the...

    Too Bad

    I am not a Macho Man. Couldn't even pretend to be one. I don't think that's a bad thing... until it comes to trying to make new friends--especially online. I can't seem to be able to attract the attention of anyone unless I pretend to be someone I'm not. Of course, this makes the...

    As Aretha once sang about women, that is, that they want respect, I think the same is true for some of us men too.I don't have to be macho to be respected.

    Hardly

    Hardly! I`m the one that cooks, cleans and looks after our son while my wife earns the $$$$. I don`t follow sport, never been in a fight, I`m non-competetive and cry easily.

    Nah, Not Me!

    I'm just your average guy trying to survive in this crazy world. It's amazing how having feelings makes a man seem "feminine" in the eyes of others.

    No, I Am Not a Macho Man Or...

    No, I am not a macho man or woman. I seem to think that I am at times, like when I am in a bad mood and want to kick everyones but cause they wont quit messing with me. I figure that it will get me into trouble one of these days, or maybe not.

    I Know I'm Not Macho Man

    A Macho Man wouldn't be caught dead in a skirt or dress. I like wearing dresses or skirts so that's proof enough that I'm not Macho
