"Real Man" is Bullsh*t - Why That Term is Hogwash | Eric Bandholz

—Eric Bandholz

So, one of the terms that really annoys me is "real man." Like only "real men" do this or do that. I'll see the comments on this channel where some people will accuse me of being a woman because I use things like a hair dryer. They fail to recognize that a hair dryer is simply a tool to help get to a certain view.

What does it take to be a "real man." Well, to me it's just having the hardware and even then that's not a requirement (our transgender viewers can simply state that all that is required is you knowing what you are). And that's my big take away, nothing is going to make you more manly or less manly. Those things that are defined as masculine or feminine are very arbitrary.

The reality is that you should do whatever you choose to do and not let society dictate how you run your life. Focus on becoming a better man, rather than a "real" man. Because you already are a man, you can only become better or worse - not more real.

Anyways, enough of my rant. Have a great holiday season!
