Thing that will have your man card revoked

Ok the other day I was talking with a co-worker about this and the two of us thought we should start a list of things that would get your man card revoked...here are a few we came up with (feel free to comment, add/subtract, debate and such...these things do piss us off big time):

1. The "bed head" look - When in the hell did this become popular? Wasn't the point of being a man to have hair that didn't need to be managed?
2. The "Brooklyn Blowout" - When did every dude think it was cool to look like the Gotti kids? Seriously, how long did you stand in front of the mirror?
3. Skin tight pants - When did it become cool to wear clothing that even a woman has trouble getting into? Ironically, this is how the mu mu started.
4. Wearing another dude's clothes - I can understand a shirt, jacket, and in some cases a hat, when did it become OK to where another dude's shoes or in the case of my brother, pants?
5. Guy playing guitar because they are good at Guitar Hero - Uhm, why didn't you just start with a real guitar...too hard?

That is a start...any takers?

1. That's the key - it doesn't need to be managed. You roll out of bed and it's done.
2. Not sure wha the Brooklyn Blowout is.
3. Punk.
4. Yeah - not cool.
5. Because us geeks learn things in different ways

Add to the list.

* Listening to Coldplay.

+ Being so insecure about your own masculinity that you have to "call out" unusual male patterns of behavior that you find threatening to your own understanding of conventional (accepted) masculine norms.

1. True, but when you have to style that look...
2. See pictures of Gotti kids from the show "Growing Up Gotti" (sorry that might be a Jersey thing)
3. That I can understand, but if you ain't punk (which no one is...more on that in a second), what is the point?
4. Figured
5. Geeks are one things, douchebags from the college quad are another.

Ok new addition:

Calling something punk rock - Talk about a phrase that has lost all meaning. Punk rock was something cool, but Blink 182 and other ruined that.

Calling Blink 182 and like wise artists punk - Sorry fellas, punk rock started in a little place called Detroit (more on that in a second) with a band called The Stooges (opinions differ which is fine, but I feel that is the exact moment). And they were awesome.

Saying Eminem is from Detroit - This one is specific for me, since my family is from Detroit (6 Mile to be exact) and I spent most of my childhood there. Eminem was born in St. Louis for starters, and he lived in a suburb called Taylor...that is not Detroit. This same law applies to any one who says they are from a big city and they live 20+ miles away. Not cool.

Getting together and making lists. That's for girls. Does that sparkle with everyone?

This is one of the best retorts I've seen here in a long time. Excellent.

And I'll defend this list as best I can:

When women started liking it. I'm not saying it's the world's best hairdo, but 80% of stupid shit guys do is for scoring with chicks (at least in the perpetrator's mind).

I'll go the other way. Sure, a lot of pants are overly tight. But baggy pants actually look worse. Hint: If you need a "relaxed" fit, it's not because you're relaxing, it is because you're overweight. You're one notch away from sitting around in sweatpants, buddy.

You seem to have an issue with your brother.

This is the lamest excuse I've ever heard. Why watch football on TV? What's the matter, can't play pro football on your own?

I should have rephrased this...

It was more or less for the guys who say (and I had this conversation the other day...and I am quoting verbatim here) "Dude, when did play a real guitar ever get you anywhere?" I was stunned to say the least. That was my intention there.

Yes there are...in droves even. Hence the point of this thread...and also for a few people to get a good laugh READ this was not to be taken too seriously.
