Un-Manly

For the first time, I think that I might disagree with Tony Woodlief. His post today called "The End Times" is insulting (I think), as I routinely groom my eyebrows (although not typically while in traffic, and usually not using the rear view mirror).

Is he implying something about "men" who trim their brows? I do; I even wax them from time to time (although I don't typically "shape" them; it's more of a rough "mow" job).

Which doesn't make me any less a man, I shouldn't think (although Tony seems to disagree).

Or does it? I, personally, have always been an advocate of wholesome grooming habits. Perhaps true manliness requires personal habits slightly more reminiscent of our neanderthal ancestors.

Or perhaps I'm just hypersensitive and grouchy. In which case, you should just ignore me.

Hmm...there are no comments on this.
Does that mean everyone thinks you are hypersensative and grouchy and they are ignoring you?? =)

Manly or UnManly? That is the question. U Should do a survey to see how people vote.

I am not sure what Tony Woodlief was implying. I know of men who trim their nose hair, and they cut/trim the hair that grows in their ears. Or what about the men who trim their beard or shave. I also know of men who shave their neck because of excess body hair. I would much rather have a man trim/shave or as you put it do a rough "mow" job, then to resemble a neanderthal.

I know of some men that SHOULD BE trimming nose and ear hairs. I definitely agree with Mom on this one!

On the "Manly" note...don't worry PJ..you are manly...I think! lol
