The bluffing and nothingness of mascularity......no more PRACTICAL than other phoney things. :)The reason why I say i'm "uncultured" or "anti-intellectual" probably goes all the way back to the time when I was in high school. I was always worried about being a sissy; I didn't want to be too delicate. To me, no real man ever paid any attention to poetry and such things. How poetry ever got written -- that never struck me! So I developed a negative attitude toward the guy who studies French literature, or studies too much music or poetry --- all those "fancy" things. I admired better the steel-worker, the shop and welder, or the machine shop man. I always thought the guy who worked in the machine shop and could make things, now he was a real guy! That was my attitude. To be a practical man was, to me, always somehow a positive virtue, and to be "uncultured" or "intellectual" was not. The first was right, of course, but he second was crazy.
