It's a joke thread simply to see what comments we would give. I highly doubt that people with true "class" go to wiki, about, or how dot com to learn how to become as such.

good question.. no its not just for females, nice manners, being smart, looking cool.. to me is classy .. eg.. Cary Grant had it... Gene Kelly had it in a casual way, so did dancer Fred Astaire, maybe you can come up with some more modern men who have it.....This man had it in bucketloads... http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/person/1535...idney-Poitier/

Unless you wrote the article, no need to be offended


But that article sounds a lot like how I was raised...a girl has to smile no matter what, a girl should not argue when she doesn't get her way, don't ever raise your voice in public, etc. etc. etc. It left me totally unprepared for life as a functioning adult. Fortunately I have freed myself from that subjugation and learned to assert myself. I don't even get migraines from smiling all day long anymore...my face is allowed to actually express my feelings. Go me!

Just stay on the other side of vulgar - that's all. Until you get behind closed doors, haha!
