Read this,

Every time my TV is on, all that can be seen is effeminate men prancing about, redecorating houses and talking about foreign concepts like "style" and "feng shui." Heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, transsexual, metrosexual, non-sexual; blue, green, and purple-sexual -- bogus definitions have taken over the urban and suburban world!

Real men of the world, stand up, scratch, belch, and yell "ENOUGH!" I hereby announce the start of a new offensive in the culture Wars, the "Retrosexual" movement.

The Code:

A Retrosexual man, no matter what the woman insists, PAYS FOR THE DATE.

A Retrosexual man opens doors for a lady. Even for the ones that only loosely fit that term because they are biologically female.

A Retrosexual DEALS with IT. Be it a flat tire, break-in into your home, or a natural disaster, you DEAL WITH IT.

A Retrosexual not only eats red meat; he often kills it himself.

A Retrosexual doesn't worry about living to be 90. It's not how long you live, but how well. If you're 90 years old and still reading,learning, growing and can manage a drink now and again, I salute you. If you are still having sex with your wife, you are a legend.

A Retrosexual does not use more hair or skin products than a woman. Women have several supermarket aisles of stuff. Retrosexuals need an endcap (possibly two endcaps if you include shaving goods.)

A Retrosexual does not dress in clothes from Hot Topic or Abercrombie when he's 30 years old.

A Retrosexual should know how to properly kill stuff (or people) if need be. This falls under the "Dealing with IT" portion of The Code.

A Retrosexual watches no TV show with "Queer" or "Queen" in the title.

A Retrosexual does not let neighbors screw up rooms in his house on national TV.

A Retrosexual should not give up excessive amounts of manliness for women. Some is inevitable, but major reinvention of yourself will only lead to you becoming a frou-frou, and in the long run, she ain't worth it.

A Retrosexual is allowed to seek professional help for major mental stress such as drug/alcohol addiction, death of your entire family in a freak tree chipper accident, favorite sports team being moved to a different city, favorite bird dog expiring, etc. You are NOT allowed to see a shrink because Daddy didn't pay you enough attention. Daddy was busy DEALING WITH IT, and, when you screwed up, he DEALT with you.

A Retrosexual will have at least one outfit in his wardrobe designed to conceal himself from prey.

A Retrosexual knows how to tie a Windsor or half Windsor knot when wearing a tie -- and ONLY a Windsor style knot.

A Retrosexual should have at least one good wound that he can brag about.

A Retrosexual knows how to use a basic set of tools. If you can't hammer a nail, or drill a hole straight, practice in secret until you can -- or be rightfully ridiculed for the wuss you be.

A Retrosexual knows that owning a gun is not a sign that you are riddled with fear, guns are TOOLS and are often essential to DEAL WITH IT. Plus, it's just plain fun to fire one off in the direction of those people or things that just need a little "wakin' up."

Crying: There are very few reasons that a Retrosexual may cry, and none of them have to do with TV commercials, movies, or soap operas. Sports teams are sometimes a reason to cry, but the preferred method of release is swearing or throwing the remote control. Some reasons a Retrosexual can cry include (but are not limited to) death of a loved one, death of a good bird dog, loss of a major body part, or loss of major body part on your truck or Jeep.

When a Retrosexual is on a crowded bus and or a commuter train, and a pregnant woman, heck, any woman gets on, that Retrosexual stands up and offers his seat to that woman, then looks around at the other so-called men still in their seats with a disgusted "you low-life" look on his face.

A Retrosexual knows how to say the Pledge properly, and with the correct emphasis and pronunciation. He also knows the words to the Star Spangled Banner

A Retrosexual will have hobbies and habits his wife and mother do not understand, but that are essential to his manliness, in that they offset the acceptable manliness decline he suffers when married, engaged or in a serious healthy relationship, e.g., hunting, fishing, boxing, shot putting, shooting, cigars, car maintenance, or occasional drink.

A Retrosexual knows how to sharpen his own knives and kitchen utensils.

A Retrosexual man can drive in snow (heck, a blizzard) without sliding all over or driving under 20 mph, without anxiety, and without high-centering his vehicle in a snow bank.

A Retrosexual man can chop down a tree and make it land where he wants. Wherever it lands is where he darned well wanted it to land. Except on his truck --that would happen only because of a "force of nature," and then the retrosexual man's options are to Cry, or to DEAL WITH IT, or do both.

A Retrosexual will give up his seat on a bus to not only any woman but any elderly person or person in military dress. NOTE: The person in military dress may turn down the offer but the Retrosexual man will ALWAYS make the offer to them and thank them for serving their country.

A Retrosexual man doesn't need a contract -- a handshake is good enough. He will always stand by his word even if circumstances change or the other person deceived him.

A Retrosexual man doesn't immediately look to sue someone when he does something stupid and hurts himself. We understand that sometimes in the process of doing things we get hurt and we just DEAL WITH IT!

This is the code of ethics for the Retrosexual man.

(Code is taken from original Retrosexual group, Texas A&M chapter)

Damn straight, I'm retrosexual...Actually, most of that stuff is pretty much common sense that the media f*cked up lol...

This one I kinda disagree with...Does the show "King of Queens" count? That show's pretty funny lol.

posted by  chris_knows

Yes it does count.
It isnt funny.
You arent allowed to call yourself retrosexual and watch it.
Deal with it.

posted by  skeetin870

Dammit man, I will deal with it! I vow to never watch that show again! It makes me sick :cussing: lol...Arlight, not watching that show again lol :cool2:.

Wait, if I'm gay, then what the hell do I do with all of that porn on my computer? :laughing: JP

posted by  chris_knows

Are you talking about your massive collection of gay porn?

posted by  dodgerforlife

That was just ONE magazine of Muscle and Fitness because I wanted to learn how to make my biceps 1" bigger in 24 hours :laughing:...I never followed through with it lol...Other than that, I mean stuff like this: Almost innaporpriate ( stuff...Just without the shrink wrap :hi: :laughing:

posted by  chris_knows

That is the least retro-sexual thing you could do.

Also, King of Queens is pretty good, especially for a sitcom. Plus Leah Rehmani (sp?) is just plain smokin'.

Well I'd say I follow most of that "code" out of common sense, but it seems to imply that getting yourself involved with a girl makes you less of a man. I disagree.

If he is elderly you respect him.

And the fan club will spread the word on Retrosexuality

So I'm a retrosexual and I didn't even know it. :doh:

A real retrosexual male would never use the lame title of "retrosexual" to sdescribe himself.

A real retrosexual man wouldn't have to worry about his sexuality or avoid non-manly things in FEAR of becoming gay, as he would fear nothing, not even the ridicule of narrow minded men.
