Until young people work out their own identity the often copy what they see on TV/film or stage.

Or else you have an engineer with a real sense of humor who knows how to bug the older staff.:tongueout:

Guys are [kittens] these days, man. No kidding. I've alienated quite a few people at work with my jokes. Apparently, it's not 'nice' to rip on another dude for acting or dressing like a girl and drinking wine coolers.

I've been wondering if men now have [female genitalia] or something? I pretty much avoid talking to people now unless it's about something work-related 'cause if I bring up guns or electric guitars and blues music the conversation just dies immediately. You have to talk about your "feelings" and your last period and the brand of tampons that you wear to stay interesting, it seems.

That's probably number 2 on the list of reasons to have a lady in your life, right after physical affection. When you're with a girl you can drink all her girly drinks that are too embarrassing to order on your own. :supergrin:

I guess I don't get out much. Awesome appeared in common usage in the 80's. I think the the high pitched twiterpated version probably started off as a gay thing.

However, the OP is comming off a bit like Dana Carvey from Saturday Night Live. " In my day, we ate wood chips for cereal with turpintine, and we liked we loved it!"

Relax. The younger generation will always annoy, that the is pretty much how the generational gap works.

You hit the nail on the head! I remember when I learned to not be a ***** and it was a3-4 year period that involved football coaches making me run bleachers, getting licks from the couches instead of detention, and having to fight my way out of the trouble my mouth got me into.

They were pretty close minded. Didn't like the cloths,music,the slang,could history be repeating itself?

One thing for sure,they sure ain't as physical as my generation.
Instead of fist-i-cufs , they just blow you away.

Nobody is talking about baggy pants, etc. We're talking about guys that run around acting like girls - saying "awesome" in a high pitched girl voice, adopting feminine mannerisms, etc. When I went to high school, there would be line of guys waiting for their turn to knock the crap out someone that adopted such behavior. Now I guess it's called bullying.

Have you ever been in western Europe? The male handbag fad developed when the studs would not fit anything into their pockets.

I have not been there in many years so maybe their tastes have changed. I found a link to a recent Huffington post on the subject. It's fluff, but the beat goes on.

Not an issue for me I'm fat and don't like constricting clothes.

What you need to do is to teach girlfriend to like watching you drinking scotch.

My girlfriend waits at a restaurant that's closing down:she's got me dibs on the Glenlivet,Maker's Mark,Beam,Dewar's,Crown and Jameson.If you happen to be in Chapel Hill NC,PM me.

My daughter is 14 years old. Last Friday when I picked her up from school for our weekend visit, while we were in the car, she asked me, why do boys her age act so girly. I told her, these are the results of having a liberal upbringing. They don’t want their daughters to be submissive and they don’t want their sons to act masculine. Liberals want both sexes to act the same.

Skinny Jeans should be only worn by females. I have no idea how a another mans junk can handle those kind of jeans.

Just a question with no ill intent towards anybody , but has any body considered parenting ? There's many old sayings and one that comes to mind is that my father was no man to be toyed with , no mercy , over kill at times but I did learn morality , responsibility , and whether you like it or not , do it and be done with it or else.And that saying , like father , like son !:tongueout:
Just maybe we didn't spend enough time with our children.
