Five Things That Make Me Feel Like A Fraud Calling Myself A Real Man

I’m aware the title sounds a little strange, but I really feel like a fraud when someone says i’m a real man. Yes in all the anatomical way, I am. There’s always a few things that a man is just supposed to do, and feel, that I just don’t, and I thought I would tell you what they are.

  1. I Don’t Like Sport.

Every man is supposed to like some kind of sport, wether it be, Football, Rugby, Cricket, Boxing, etc, and I just don’t. I couldn’t think of anything worse to do than sit and watch people play sport. Football may be interesting to some people, but to me it’s just a load of guys kicking a ball around a massive patch of grass, and boxing is just two men hitting each other. To be quite honest, I would rather watch paint dry. I find it much more interesting.

2. I Don’t Like Beer.

Every man has that signature Beer that everyone just knows is their drink, and they love nothing more than to sit and watch Football with a can of their favourite Beer. I’m sorry, but it tastes disgusting. It tastes like someone has mixed together about twenty different drinks, and tried calling it a drink. I know it sounds unmanly, but I much prefer either a nice Vodka and Coke, or some kind of cocktail.

3. I Can’t Change A Fuse, Plug, or Socket.

Every man is just supposed to instinctively be able to change a fuse, plug, socket, or fix anything electrical, but I just can’t. I would like to say it’s got something to do with the fact that i’m visually impaired, but it isn’t. If you gave me a plug and a screwdriver, and asked me to change a plug. I would probably think you were asking me to tight rope walk. It’s just alien to me.

4. I Have Absolutely No Interest In Cars.

Every man loves his car, but I have absolutely no interest what so ever in cars. I don’t even know where the keys go in a car, that’s how disinterested I am. I would love to be able to drive one day, but even if I can,I think i’ll only be interested in where they can get me, and not what’s under the bonet.

5. I Love Beauty Products.

Every man is supposed to look rough and ready, and that they’ve done a hard days work, but I prefer to have a more put together look. I like my face, hands, and basically my entire body, to be soft and smooth, and not rough .

That’s just a few things that make me feel like a little bit of a fraud calling myself a real man. I am extremely aware that these are very generalised steriotypes, but this is just a little bit of tongue in cheek fun, so please don’t take it too seriously.

  1. I’ve got to admit I’m rather partial to watching football but I too can’t change fuses, have no interest in cars, prefer rum to beer and have an interest in beauty products as well.
    (I’d probably fail the stereotype “man” test too because I love Ugly Betty, musicals and Katy Perry).
    If that makes us both frauds so be it!
    But, to me, a real man isn’t so much measured on the things he likes or doesn’t like but on how he treats others. I don’t think there’s any problem with not filling stereotypes on how “real men” are supposed to be.
    Being yourself is much more important than trying to be someone else’s idea of what a man should be.
