Real Men

What is a man? If you answered ‘a miserable pile of secrets,’ then you are a bigger geek than we are and you need to get out of 1994.

Alucard. Not a real man.

Alucard. Not a real man.

But if you have been following the drama over at Tunay na Lalake, you’ll know it takes all sorts to make a real man.

The drama is believed to have started over at facebook, where men who like men accused the ‘real’ men of sexist macho shit.

The ‘real’ men retaliated by claiming that men who like men simply do not understand real men.

This, of course, is like waving a red flag in front of an angry bull. Or waving a [insert sex organ] in front of [insert gender demographic corresponding to the aforementioned sex organ for maximum sexist joke].

Meanwhile, women, real or otherwise, remain unimpressed.

  1. i thought ang tunay na lalake was one of those satirical things that pokes fun at stereotypes. i didn’t notice that different people get to post there… now i really don’t get what that blog is about. =|

  2. Actually, my answer would be \"a miserable <i>little</i> pile of secrets\". 😉

    I wouldn\’t know about men liking men being the culprits, though. There truly is no merit in the insult of gay and women in an attempt to define oneself as a real man; it does the opposite, in fact. It only proves that they are immature.

    What they\’re doing here is not satire, but a blatant and obvious use of ad hominems to justify their lack of understanding for gay people and women.
