Kottke.org linked to some serious link-bait in “How To Be A F%#king Man…” today, which purports to be the guide to being a “man” in today’s society. Apparently some people think you need an 85-point list to figure it all out nowadays or that things like owning a “handcrafted shotgun” or being a regular at a bar or that “piercings are liabilities in fights” are important AND make you a douche bag man. (Really glad Kottke called this out too.)
How about these “rules”:
- Be a good person.
- Forget everything anyone tells you about what “being a man” is…
- Pretty simple.
Stereotypes, expectations, and labels are tiring.
