It could get more non-PC with "bend over and take it like a man".

This is the result of the feminization of America that has been going on for 20 years.

Does it get on anyone else's nerves when guys wear skin tight jeans?

I've seen it in the guys that my granddaughters date. Not one has known how to work on a car, or even change a flat. GD #2 had a flat a while back and guess who she had to call! I asked why isn't bozo #2 helping and of course he didn't know the first thing. So yours truly off to the rescue. One guy had a miss in his engine and I was fairly sure it was a plug or wire so I asked how old were the plugs. He didn't know and didn't even know what a spark plug was. Sure enough it was his plugs.

Now I know many young men are capable but it seems my granddaughters can't find them! (And they're both pretty girls!) I do think more than ever before boys are discouraged from "acting out" and being boys.

Did skaters cause 3 dollar bill hair and skinny jeans? I'm wondering what brought on those two travesties.

It all depends on the father-figure,or lack of one.
Growing up,we HAD to learn how to fix cars,we HAD to learn to shoot and work the fields if we wanted to eat.Back then,dad took us to the barber shops,not these wimpy girly Supercuts.I still to this day remember the smell of the barber shop.It was a manly smell of cigars,Jeris hair tonic,and Clubman talc.And we had to learn to shave using them double edge razors with the disposable razor blades and splashed on Skin Bracer or Old Spice afterwards (OUCH!!)
yes,our parents were very hard on us growing up,we hated it,but today I'm very glad they were hard on us.

Bloody sad is what it is,even here in Australia a lot of the young fellas wouldn't know the difference between a handbrake and a latte coffee break and are more at home in front of a computer or going to a friends place and then going out and drinking light beer or some weird concoction.

When I was a kid a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away we spent most of our days playing cricket, Rugby League, fishing, knocking around with other mates just doing "things".
We were rarely bored and drugs were things like headache tablets that you took when sick.
Beer was something that Dad and my uncles drank at the pub and we never ever vandalised anything because after a boot up the backside off the coppers we then had to face the old man and that wasn't a real good idea.

Half the trouble now is that the parents of these kids are trying to wrap them up in cotton and save them from the nasty world and won't let them out to climb trees, ride bikes, skin their knees, stuff that kids should be doing and seeing things like how Mother Nature works for real when a fox, Coyote catches a rabbit and eats it while it's still alive.
