Geeze I played so many songs on this topic this morning it set my mind wondering. What is a man according to a man? Or what is a man according to a woman? Joe Jackson once asked in his song “Real Men” is he “rough or is he rugged is he cultural and clean?”. I always liked that song but am not sure I want to follow Joe Jackson’s advice on the subject. The cultural and clean thing translates to”metrosexual” (Frasier Crane). Some women will tell a man that’s the way a man ought to be. I don’t think I’m buying it. I think you as a man will have that certain better ” luck” if you talk about a rick of firewood you split than where you got your manicure.
To add to the confusion there’s that Bonnie Raitt song “Love Me Like A Man” Does she want to be loved like she’s a man?
Is this what they want me to blog about?
