Be a Man

It doesn't matter whether you're straight, gay, Democrat, Republican. There are some basic traits that every man should have. In this month's issue of Esquire, Tom Chiarella tells us what those traits are. Below is a quick excerpt. Man up, read the rest of the article, and see how far short you fall of being a man. "A man carries cash. A man looks out for those around him — woman, friend, stranger. A man can cook eggs. A man can always find something good to watch on television. A man makes things — a rock wall, a table, the tuition money. Or he rebuilds — engines, watches, fortunes. He passes along expertise, one man to the next. Know-how survives him. This is immortality. A man can speak to dogs. A man fantasizes that kung fu lives deep inside him somewhere. A man knows how to sneak a look at cleavage and doesn't care if he gets busted once in a while."
