this makes me think of some of the things Susan Faludi talks about in her book Stiffed, which is like ten years old now, about how men were the next great unexploited fashion/beauty market.

This does remind me of a thread i wanted to start, about how the only time I ever use the phrase "men" or "women" seems to involve marketing pitches for Boomers, or gay bars. It's like "Magazine for Men" or "Bars for Men" I automatically equate to "gay-targeted". I mean, almost all of the males I ever encountered above the age of 18 fall into the category of "dudes," "guys", "fellas", "bros", or "homies".

I worked with a guy who talked about how they'd go on a "men's retreat" every year, which was pretty much just a chance to head out to the Oregon deserts and bro down with buddies with dune buggies.

Surely if your hair is already full of manly grime and dust you would just leave it as is rather than compromise your machismo with a namby-pamby simulacrum of manliness whipped up in a lab by some Poindexter.

OUR DRIVE TO CREATE AND DESIRE TO DISRUPT ARE THE CORE OF MAN CAVE

How do I parse? Shit broetry.

Our drive to create, and our desire to disrupt, are the core of the man cave. The core of the cave. The cave’s core is creative. And destructive. Creativity on the one hand and the desire to disrupt are on the other.

Not disruption, but the desire to disrupt.

Men want to make stuff, and think about disruptive stuff and that is deep in their holes.

Cory "Sludge" Cove, one of the hosts of our local sports talk station's (KFAN) Power Trip Morning Show is a HUGE 311 fan like he travel to see them at Red Rocks and stuff and says without a doubt they are the best band ever, way better than the Beatles or anyone, he got in an argument with one of the Boomer hosts about 311 vs. the Beatles, it's almost weird

but he also famously only eats chicken strips
