So.. If a man in public appears to you to have female traits, it doesn't matter about his domestic abilities or fathering abilities? He is not a real man based on appearance or 5-10 mins of casual observation? Regardless of what can actually due, like change a tire, raise a child, pay bills or milk a cow, cut the grass, rebuild a v-twin engine, use a dial caliper..

Be careful making assumptions..
First of all that's not how real Christians treat people.
Second, that's how you get made to look like an ass..
This is almost 2014, judging ppl, particularly by appearance my have been cool back in your day, but those days are beyond over.

Honestly, no matter how I or anyone feels about it, this is what old men have complained about since the beginning of time.

If it looks like a pile of sh!t,
and it smells like a pile of sh!t,
and it's covered with green headed flies,
Then..................

Well, you get the idea.

"You can see a lot by just looking." -- Yogi Berra

Ignore appearance and behavior at your peril.

Contrary to the current PC BS, you can learn a lot about people just by how they dress and how they act. Add in what they drive, what they do for a living, and who they hang around with, and you have a pretty good basis from which to build a profile. I'm given to understand Law Enforcement and intel types do that sort of thing all the time. I make no claims at being particularly expert at it, but I figure if someone is assuming a certain appearance and the accompanying mannerisms, there is typically a reason.

I'm with you on this Vikingdad, I do not like getting my feet or nails done ...I have no idea where the utensils have been before ...and they dig so deep into the cuticle it hurts....so I do it all myself...for free
If men want to have their nails done, go ahead, but it is very feminine in my opinion...

It is a side effect of gender equality. I hope it does not erode our military, but judging them is above my current pay grade. Edit. Just thought of one example. A 300 lbs football player complains openly about being "bullied" by a 400 lbs teammate. The social acceptance of this is what bothers me, not the lotion or pedicure.
Honestly, our whole society is getting weak...young people having children is the first thing, these kids are coddled....we didn't wear helmets, knee pads and such when we went out to ride our bikes...and a football player being bullied is hysterical...they are supposed to be ruff n tuff...but even the NFL is starting to go soft...
