I woke up this morning and did my normal routine, just like every other Groundhog Day I go through. While in the shower I realized that I have not touched a bar of soap in about ten years and we only own a few washcloths, all of which have either Spiderman, The Avengers or Mickey Mouse on them.
Toweling off with my purple towel, I started thinking about what else I do that make me less manly. Yes, you read that right I said purple towel. I have a two towels I use because they are scratchy, I do not like fluffy towels, I like scratchy towels when you dry off it scratches your back. Anyway, I started thinking about what else I do that could make me less of a man in some eyes.
Besides the purple towel, the floofy and body wash, there isn't much else in the bathroom that I do to demasculinize (is that a word? Fuck it, it is now, call me Webster bitch), I don't spray (we all know that), I don't go near the B & B Works stash, I stopped using gel and mousse in my hair a while ago, I trim my nails...ah shit, I take care of my cuticles. Does that make me less masculine? Oh well, it feels good so I will continue to do it and yes I do trim...um, down there. I said trim, not shave, make sure you get it straight. The Trophy does it so it's only fair that I do...

On the same aspect, I don't hunt. It's not that I believe I am holier than thou and people shouldn't kill animals for food, that's not it, it's just boring. I will leave it to the Elmer Fudds of the world to allow me to enjoy some venison. I am complete meatatarian (yup another addition into my dictionary), I don't believe in killing plants for food. Ron White hit the nail on the head when he said, "...it's really early in the morning, it's really cold outside and I don't wanna fucking go." I'll eat it if you kill it.

My taste in music is eclectic. If you check my iPod you will find anything from Megadeth to Brittany Spears. Yes, Brittany Spears, Madonna, Cher, Barbara Streisand, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and P!nk just to name a few female artists that I listen to. I am comfortable with my masculinity to admit that I have some artists that would be considered gay genre or feminine genre. I like Culture Club, Duran Duran and even Bryan Adams. Don't look at me like that, you can't tell me you don't start belting out "If I could turn back time, if I could find a way..." when Cher comes on the radio.
Lastly, I have in fact had a pedicure. If you have never had a pedicure, go and get one, it is freaking awesome. In my defense though it was part of the massage package I opted for in the Dominican Republic but I would definitely do it again if the opportunity was presented to me.
Think what you will, but I do in fact do things that would be considered manly. I like to build things, in fact I just built a pantry in the garage and you should see my Lego Star Wars collection. I love hiking and camping and not the "Oh, let me hook up my three bedroom condo" camping, I'm talking about grabbing the tent, sleeping bags and heading out to the lake. There's my piece and quiet. I enjoy drinking beer, scratching myself and farting (oh do I love to fart). There are many other things that I enjoy doing that would outweigh the non-masculine things...at least that is what I am telling myself.
Remember, before you decide to cut corners off my man card, judge not, lest thee be judged thyself.
