Thankfully the U.S. doesn't still follow L.A.,Chicago and NYC "trends".
I don't live in Chicago, either, but people of both genders where I am carry messenger bags all the time. It never occurred to me to bat an eye at it.

I wasn't playing a game, or trying to be amusing. That might be YOUR purpose on this site, but not mine.

I carried a messenger bag for years. I used mass transit to get to work and trying to carry keys, cellphone, newspaper etc was to much of a hassle without it. I also wear pink dress shirts and really don't GARA what others think.

My husband carries one, and actually asked me to find him a new one

He is a physician, and carries his laptop, stethoscope, cellphone, day planner, etc.
Why are they called murses? Basically just briefcases, etc

I carry a backpack to work, it contains thermos of coffee, multi-tool, pad and pen, wallet, keys, cell phone, thumb drives, flashlight, gum and lip balm. Most of that stuff gets used on a daily basis at work and I don't like having a bunch of bulky items jammed in my pockets. Outside of work I toss my wallet and cell phone in the console of the car and travel light. I couldn't see myself walking around with a pack or murse all day. The messenger bag types are a little fruity to me, they look like over-sized purses, but to each.

The larger Timbuk2 style messenger bags are cool and functional, but the smaller purse-like messenger style bags with thin straps do not look masculine at all. Just my .03 cents.

Here's are some picks of various male celebs and every day guys carrying them:

I too, automatically question a guy's sexuality when I see them carrying a purse.

There is a very distinct difference between a briefcase, backpack, and a purse.

Guys that carry either of the first two, no questions; but a purse?
