I really don't see why TX cities are more "manly"...it's mostly people not from TX saying this.

As someone who's been EVERYWHERE I would say the rust belt cities like Detroit, Cleveland, Chicago are the "manliest' b/c they have the biggest ties to blue-collar good 'ol working class culture.

Homosexuality is not what I think of when someone describes something that is masculine or manly. I have nothing against 'alternative lifestyles', but if you all mean 'manly' in that sense, then San Francisco comes to mind...

Seriously, I can't believe only a couple people said Detroit. Its definitely the most masculine city in my eyes. When I think of Detroit I think of the Pistons, Red Wings, Tigers and Joe Louis. I think of the Motor City, America's Poorest City, hard-times and blue-collar people.

I guarantee if you say 'Detroit', people don't think of gay bars, femininity, manicures and pedicures.
Almost the same can be said for Cleveland, Buffalo, Milwaukee, Rochester, Niagara Falls, etc.

To be honest with you, I think Buffalonians are the toughest. Buffalo's a dangerous city, it may not be as dangerous as Detroit, but dangerous is dangerous. It's the 2nd poorest city in the country, I drove around 2 blocks and counted 128 houses, 117 of which looked abandoned, the only city a team went to 4 straight Super Bowls and were let down every time, home of Buffalo wings, a town where the whole hockey season is sold out before the season even begins and they can't win a Stanley Cup, a town where workers are getting laid off every day, and the snowiest and windiest municipality in the country (especially in the dead of winter). The nicest people you'll ever meet. Business after business closing down... Gas prices the highest in the nation (along with the fact that it's the 2nd poorest city in the nation). Just a blue-collar, depressed, cold, frozen industrial city. Nicknamed the City of Good Neighbors, but also nicknamed the Forgotten City...

So what I'm seeing is that a city is "manly" if it's economically depressed, formerly blue collar, up North, etc.

Why are some people mentioning the South, the region who has always had a masculine culture, as feminine?

Are you talking about the cities (likely filled with transplants from the North) or in general?

HMMM coming from someone with a screen name like PETERRABBIT, I question your opinion on that. Wasn't the rabbit Peter Rabbit rather feminine looking? I always thought so!

Not all homosexuals consider ourselves feminine. In fact, I see just as many feminine straight men as I do gay men!

Obviously I've never actually been to such an ubsurd place but I would think Fort Worth would be a manly city. The place were men's men wrestle steers just for kicks. and Kick steers just to wrestle! Mustaches flow like the plains drifting from the edipus of stoph that IS fort worth. Filled with blossom of Dallas boosom. Flossin b.
