On the heels of the news that Robert Redford probably had plastic surgery (Joan Rivers thinks so, anyway), Im wondering what makes a man, you know, manly. Re: plastic surgery, I sort of figure that a manly man grows old, you know? Like “hell with it, I am who I am, love it or hate it.” Metro guys get pedicures, manly-men get corns. Eew.

Maybe Im disillusioned, so tell me what you think. What does it take to be a “real” guy? Change your own oil? Johnnie Walker? A dismissive attitude towards women? Guns? Are manly-men being phased out by a kinder, gentler society?
