Real Men (pronouns He, Him, Zer)
Aug 29th, 2021 at 7:05am
 
Ok, have I offended anyone with the pronouns? No? Ill have to try harder.

Guys, relax for a second...I am talking about Real Men. Please dont let my toxic masculinity offend anyone.

My question is this. Name a famous person who strikes you as just a "real man".

10 years ago I wouldve said Bruce Jenner but damnit things change so she will be far up on my list of women instead.

I have to go with the quintessential man's man. Tom "the mustache" Selleck. That guy has been one of my favorite famous people forever.

I remember watching Magnum P.I. as a kid when I was too "sick" to go to school. Quigley Down Under is an awesome movie and that cemented him as my celebrity hero. And over all he seems like such a chill dude.

What do you think?

How about the late, great Charles Bronson?  He flew on B-29s in WWII and was awarded the Purple Heart so he was a pretty tough guy in real  life too.

Charles Bronson is one I always forget even though I grew up watching him. He definitely belongs on the list.  Cheesy

Great choice Slingbadger. More so than anyone I had on my list. The guy was shot before a speech in an assassination attempt and still spoke for 90 mins bleeding the whole time. Whens the last time we had a president that tough?

Something to be said for the characters that John Wayne and Charleston Heston portrayed. They were both more often than not portraying the same stock character  Grin

   John Wayne is like McDonalds.  For better or worse you always know exactly what you're going to get. That said, I do enjoy a John Wayne movie every now and then. 
    In that Jackie Chan did almost all of his own stunts I'd include him on this list.

John Wayne is a classic. How about Clint Eastwood. That guy is still going strong.

Luke stoltman
He's the current Europe's strongest Man and his younger  brother Tom, is the current worlds strongest Man

Luke used to work on the oil rigs and improvised training equipment while out there.
Tom has Asperger's, and it was as a way of helping him that Luke took him down the gym with him.

I've seen Luke in competition a few times at the world's strongest team events and probably at a British strongest Man comp in his youth.

He never comes across as anything but a thoroughly likeable and stand up gentleman.

When Tom won the world's luke was bawling his eyes out with emotion.
Luke narrowly missed out on a podium position himself.

Watch some of their YouTube channel.
Luke just comes across as a truly honourable and thoroughly likeable man.
The sort of bloke who'd help a puppy across the street and rip your head off if you were stupid enough to threaten his family.

If you want an exemplary example of a real man, I give you:
Luke 'The Highland oak' Stoltman

How has the thread gone so long without mentioning Chuck Norris?

Apart from his martial arts and acting, no clue what he's like as a man.

Always seems to be a stand up bloke, and can't recall any negative press.
So why not Thumbs Up

    Lewis and Clark.  If you read about their expedition you have to be impressed.  Men like these no longer exist.  They truly had brass balls.

When little kids go to sleep they wear Superman pajamas. When Superman goes to sleep he wears Chuck Norris pajamas.

Anyways, as a child of the 80s and 90s I grew up in the testosterone drenched decades of action heros. So Arnold Schwarzenegger. Though I know nothing about him outside movies I love his work inside the movies.

Conan the Barbarian- Awesone
Conan the Destroyer- Eh but awesomeish
Terminator- Hell yeah
Terminator 2- one of the greatest action flicks ever
True Lies- A very competent movie..
Predator- Great movie.
Etc.
