It's nothing short of tragic that an adult male is so deeply doubtful of his own masculinity that all it takes is a Brussels sprout to destroy his ability to think of himself as a real man. What a terribly sad and confused life he must live, every single day.

I can't help feeling sorry for his poor girlfriend, too. is it OK for him to buy her flowers, or is he worried someone might see him and get... well, you know... the wrong idea?

Well, Pilgrim, where I come from we call that "concern-trolling."

Any guy that considers veggies unmanly is a complete moron. Some of the most beautiful veggie gardens I've ever seen were taken care of by old retired men. Many times I won't even eat meat at all for lunch and will just have a salad, fruit, and maybe a small portion of nuts.

Today during lunch, I had a coworker comment that I "always eat so healthy." She went on to say that she wished that she could convince her boyfriend to eat vegetables. Apparently, he doesn't like to eat vegetables and considers them "unmanly." I guess that I have never considered healthy eating to belong to one particular gender, but if you think about it, most food commercials targeted to men are more centered around meat (think... buffalo wings, bacon, BBQ). It makes you wonder if some men are afraid to incorporate vegetables into their diet because they fear that it makes them appear feminine (quite strange if you ask me).

Do you consider eating vegetables to be "unmanly?"
Any dude who cares that much about what other's think about his manliness clearly has some insecurities...

That's kind of annoying too, people who think they can only eat chicken breast and vegetables. That's for another thread but with so many healthy options why only eat those two things?

you're not unmanly because you are eating healthy.
