Here is an interesting article from September placing Nashville as the manliest city in America.

Nashville Ousts Charlotte to Reclaim Title of 'America's Manliest City' -- HACKETTSTOWN, N.J., Sept. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

I apologize in advance if this was discussed already.
Apologies are very un-manly. NYC just went down 5 rankings.

Denver isn't any more like that from what I've seen then any other city in the West.
I actually had the displeasure of living in Oregon for a year. I went to school in Corvallis. I can tell you that Portland is nothing like Denver. Portland is much more of the San Francisco-esque sort of city--hybrids, lattes, etc, etc, etc. Denver is completely different.

Houston, Nashville, Dallas, Memphis, Pittsburgh, Philly, and Charlotte strike me as manly cities.

As far as manly states, I'd say Texas, Georgia, West Virginia, Mississippi, and Bama.

The west coast is pathetic when it comes to masculinity. Too much of a surplus of pretentious, pseudo-intellectual, passive aggressive snobs.

Same here.

Here's what I want to know... how are we defining "manly?"

Is it El Camino/not bathing/not knowing how to read "manly?"



Is it the classic gentleman who keeps the money coming in, keeps to his word, and likes a good scotch, "manly?"


Or something inbetween...?


Just sort of your average, Coors-from-the-bottle, football-on-TV guy?
