    Default What makes a man?

    Anyway, what do you personally believe makes a man? Take it at face value and answer it as simply and as honestly as you can. This is open ended and vague on purpose. Whether you are a female and are thinking of the ideal man, or you are a male and thinking of what is ideal in your eyes, which is not necessarily what is ideal in the eyes of society. In essence, on a personal level, what makes a man a man in your own personal outlook?

    Thank you Erinavery for recommending this topic.

    It's mainly the penis and testicles.

    I guess I desreve that after asking it to be so literal and taken at face value.

    What about the metaphorical/metaphysical idea of a man to you?

    I'm with Magic. It's the frank and the beans. I don't see how I can get into metaphysical essences of "man" without using stereotypes and gender roles to prove it so...not sure where to go with this.

    The measure of a man (and a women also) often aligns quite evenly with the amount of influence their will has had over others, and if that influence is perceived as good or bad.

    So in this sense, Gandhi is just as much a man as Batman.
