Rebuttal to NYT’s ridiculous “27 Ways to Be a Modern Man”

Some bright light at the New York Times deigned to tell us 27 signs of a “modern man”. Heh…..I think he meant ‘metro’…..

Mike Rowe responds in kind, with 27 signs of a man’s man. For brevity’s sake….read it here.

My personal favorite:

NYT: The modern man has no use for a gun. He doesn’t own one, and he never will.

MR: A Man’s Man owns at least one firearm. He knows how to use it, clean it, and store it properly. He understands it’s importance, and sees it for what it is – a tool that can protect him and his family.

  1. The modern man uses the proper names for things. For example, he’ll say “helicopter,” not “chopper” like some gauche simpleton.

    I use “‘copter” but I think I will say “chopper” more often, just because of this.

    The modern man listens to Wu-Tang at least once a week.

    Once a headbanger, always a headbanger.

    The modern man has no use for a gun. He doesn’t own one, and he never will.

    My favorite one too. Only in a bizarro world does being at the mercy of criminals equate to being a “real man.” i won’t say “feminized” because more and more women are arming themselves, and have more balls than the man who wrote that.
