    Men should carry backpacks, briefcases, or something that makes them look like they're involved in some manly profession. If it looks like a purse, honey, its a purse.

    I started carrying a messenger/courier-style bag last year. It serves a useful purpose -- it currently contains a handful of bills that I'm supposed to pay, a bass lessons book, sheet music for songs that my band is working on, a busted instrument cable that I need to return, a couple CDs, etc.

    And it doesn't look like at all a purse, looks pretty similar to this one:

    These man purses are flaming. It is NOT stylish to have a fanny pack, a murse, a high-tech messenger bag, or a "portable electronics carrier".

    The only acceptable "accessories" any man should be allowed, are either a beat-to-hell old REAL leather satchel, Indiana Jones style, or a beat-to-hell old REAL military-issue map bag or messenger satchel.

    If your sh*t has night-time reflectors for safety, YOUR MAN CARD IS REVOKED.

    If it has a D-ring clip for your Ipod, YOUR MAN CARD IS REVOKED.

    If it has an elastic mesh net on the outside for your Starbucks to slip into, YOUR MAN CARD IS REVOKED.

    Please return your Man Card to the front desk as you pick up your neon-pink PDA cover and Birkenstock sandals.

    I like turtles.
    So why exactly do you need to carry a gun around? :eyebrow:

    It's really not going to stop you being mugged. They normally steal your bag...

    Under no circumstances should you ever carry a manbag.

    I carry a leather bag. It is handmade from elk hide. It has fringe. It has cool beads hanging from the fringe, 'cause I put 'em there. It it a total hippie-chick bag. The strap broke, and I fixed it with rawhide shoelaces and an awl.

    No man would be seen in public with such a bag, I'm thinkin'.

    My husband won't even look in there. If he needs something from my hippie-chick purse, he'll come get me to go look in there.

    I don't know why any man would want to have to sit and dig through a bag. Its a pain!


  11. Excuse me Sir, but I don't recall insulting you or making orientation-degrading remarks. Yes, I am taking that as an insult...and my Wife and two kids do as well...you big burly testosterone sack.

  15. Goofy sh*t guys, just like the last thread on this...you know what is even more questionnable than a man using a bag as such? A bunch of "macho" guys starting threads on it, discussing it and making "man laws" about it. That is (ahem) gay. Oh, sweet irony.

    You all suck at life. :smug:

    this is just disturbing...

    If THAT was in it, I wouldn't call it feminine (to your face anyway):)
  18. txbasscik, I hope you never pull the "here, will hold this for me for a minute" on your husband!

    If her husband is adhering to man laws he won't hold unless it's for some guaranteed-sign-on-the-dotted-line nookie at the end of the day. I mean, just saying... :ninja: :bag:

    EDIT: For the record: This would be covered under Man Law #44 and it's subsequent clauses.

    44. You shall never spend more time than entirely necessary in any kind of store that does not sell beer, hunting/fishing equipment or car parts, etc.
    44a. When a woman needs your escorting skills at a mall, exercise caution as to the amount of time being spent in these foul places.
    44b. A man always has a plan and strategy when entering a store thus insist on the same with a woman.
    44c. Use the couches directly outside the stores in the malls to sleep while the woman you are with is taking her time in the stores. (The seats in the shoe department will suffice in a pinch).
    44d. Under no circumstances shall a man hold his wife's purse, handbag, or other shopping bags emblazened with womens' store brands while waiting for the wife to try on different clothing items...
    44e. If man finds himself forced into holding said items he shall promptly detach himself of his testicles and tuck them neatly into his wife's purse and subsequently turn in his man card.
    44f. If asked for your opinion deflect because no matter what you say your wife she will not agree with you. Recruit the hottest girl in the store to give her opinion and then while your wife is in the dressing room chat her up to anger your wife into leaving said store... which is what you wanted in the first place.
