    The need for what you guys are calling a "man-purse". I use one and totally condone it.

    The satchel has organized my life. So how do you guys actually tote stuff around that you're using? Plastic shopping bags?

    Atoz is my hero.

    When I need to carry extra stuff, this is what I use:


    Mine is Vietnam-era, actually used in combat, found at a swap meet. NOT Staples.

    It is actually a laptop bag, big enough to house a 17" monitor too. With padded pockets. So, a camera/ipod/phone won't get crushed; or fall around loose in a briefcase.
  7. Naw DOOD, stolen milk crates from the local grocer, because it's cool to steal too! AND< everyone will know you're a man if you walk in yer gear in a milk crate. :rollno:

    This place has gotten ridiculous.
  8. Nice compartmented purse.

    Man this thread delivers!!!

    And by the way, if it can't fit in my pockets for every day normal trips into town, then I don't need it. End of discussion.
  11. Actually, Mon Rominee . . . that was not directed at you or anyone else in particular, but rather to whomever . . . just a take-off on the old expression "if the shoe fits . . ."

    Personally, methinks thou protests too much . . . a little too touchy - touchy, aren't we? . . . latent tendencies, perhaps??? :eyebrow:

    Sorry, didn't mean to step on your tender toes :rolleyes:

    I think the man law should be amended to include messenger/courier bags.

    Backpacks just SCREAM "tourist" around here. Students aside, the only people I see wearing backpacks are the people who wear socks with their sandles and carry a map and bottle of water everywhere. Messenger bags don't carry that same stigma, at least around these parts.
  15. Not at all, I just don't like "old expressions" that are meant to be derogatory for no good reason only than to offend /jocular humor... it gets old quick...and I didn't think we fostered this type of stuff here...hence the rules. And maybe I "protest" so much because this exact thread came up before, and was just as rediculous. You know how it goes, one idea, a couple yahoos, a thousand mee-too's, and the whole thing gets to be a bit much.

    As for the "latent tendencies" quip, ask yourself the same thing, using them homophobic phrases, newbie. I'm secure in my sexuality, as much as I am with using a damn bag if I like.

    A) You are dead-on balls accurate in your assessment of derogatory terms used on TB, for any purpose. It's not appropriate and such activity should not be engaged in.

    B) This thread was created as a result of two other threads that were running yesterday, one about men's hair styles and another about men's shoes. Somebody said, "All we need now is a thread about men's purses!" and I obliged by creating this thread. It was a joke playing off two other jokes. It should be funny and lighthearted, but NOT used as an excuse to bash anybody.

    See, now if I wanted to bash *you*, I'd be much more inclined to make fun of your French-sounding user name. :eek: Being French is so much more of an offense against manhood than carrying a purse. ;) Of course, if you're French, you probably not only carry a purse, but eat cheese and delicate sauces while sitting around in your favorite panty hose!

    But, I am not here to bash the French. It's no fun, anyway -- They just surrender and then there's nothing left to do but eat some snails and wear a beret. :p

    (Oh, where's morf when you need him?????)

    I would never claim to be the equal of the Qintar. I bow down before him and stand in awe of the greatness that is he...
