It's really a pain in the arse that 100 years ago they made up the rule that men can not carry a bag. Well this is the year 2010 and yes, men do have things to carry, not everything can fit in the pockets of men's pants, so what else are we supposed to do???

So that is when a bag is necessary. Really, who cares what type of bag someone is carrying????? Americans have serious hangups about anything different or unique....it is actually sickening already.

Most guys at work take backpacks....so I guess guys do have stuff they want to carry around. I suppose a nice pocketbook makes some men feel more 'fancy'.

Why do you think they are gay or for female?

Have you seen Indiana Jones?
