  1. If they are adults and identify as male, they are men IMO.
    I do think it’s cool that that guy is still a blacksmith in his 80s, though probably not for the reasons you do. I like old people who keep doing what they want to do even at an age when many people would begin to consider them “too old.”

    1. You have just proven that your opinion is of no worth, a man is by his actions and by being a man is an adult.

  2. So… it’s obvious you don’t consider the guy in that first picture to be “a man.” I have to laugh when people try to draw distinctions like that for other people. What are you going to do, revoke his penis? Send a repo company for his beard, maybe?

    1. Having a dick dosn’t make one a man, all male children are born with dick’s, you prick.

        Fixed it for ya.

        1. ech.
          meant to say:
          Having a dick dosn’t make one a man, all male children are born with dick’s, you prick cunt.
          Fixed it for me!

  3. Repo his moustache at the very least. Floo, manhood, and being a man, isn’t about having a penis and wearing pants. It’s something far deeper than that, something instinctual that has been around since men hunted for survival, since legions of men fought in boxes on the open plain with nothing but thin iron for protection against other men.
    The fact that you say “if they are adults and identify as male” just shows the point. Manhood in the modern day is a novelty, a desired one but still a novelty.

    1. Hey, where did I ever say being a man was about having a penis and wearing pants? I’d consider a female-to-male transsexual a man even if he doesn’t have a penis. And a man who isn’t wearing pants is still a man, unless you stop being one whenever you take your clothes off! Not to mention bathing suits, Scottish men in kilts, and cross-dressers.

  4. It takes more then a penis to be a man; having one merely makes you male. Women are, men must become.

    1. I don’t know if I completely agree with Roosh on this. But I do agree with the main idea.
      The fighter and the hunter have both put in tremendous focused effort to achieve mastery of important skills. Hunting is easily an important skill as is the ability to beat the crap out of someone else. To achieve mastery as a fighter is something that takes immense discipline and heart. No matter how much effort is put in, the fighter is going up against what may very well be a better, or just plain luckier opponent. At that point all he has to thank for his pains is a great deal of humiliation and physical damage. That takes a lot of heart.
      On the other hand, let’s face it. The blacksmith is by far more of a man.

  5. I see you are starting this new venture by drawing upon your strongest form of argument: drawing false dichotomies.

  6. The competent man:
    A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects

  7. The problem with this is that it supposes these snapshots are representative of the individuals, which isn’t necessarily true. That guy up top who seems apt to court bare penis, which obviously means he’s not a man, might spend other moments doing something manly, like hunting. And, since homosexuality is a disqualifier for manhood, is there any reason to assume the mma dude or the hunter don’t love cock? These little snippets don’t prove anything, unless being gay means not a man, in which case only one fate is determined.
