I find it amusing that some people are actually serious about the idea that there is a right way and wrong way to "be a man". Or even that the word "man" actually means anything in reality. It's like saying there is a "right" way to be short, or young, or blond, or a science fiction fan.
But some people like making rules up, I suppose, so do what you want, as long as it makes you happy.
Steve, do these guidelines you wrote make you happy?
Peace, Love, and Bicycles,
P.S. I find it even more amusing, given the stereotype that men are loathe to ask for or read directions, that Steve is giving men directions on how to be a man. :-)
