    The Code

    I have had this saved on my computer for a long time and thought I would share it with all of you.



    OK folks, I have had it. I've taken all I can stand and I can't stand no more. Every time my TV is on, all that can be seen is effeminate men prancing about redecorating houses and talking about foreign concepts like "style" and "feng shui". Heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, trans-sexual, metrosexual, non-sexual; blue, green, and purple-sexual - bogus definitions have taken over the urban and suburban world!

    Real men of the world, stand up, scratch your butt, belch, and yell
    "ENOUGH!" I hereby announce the start of a new offensive in the culture wars: the Retrosexual movement.

    The Code:

    A Retrosexual, no matter what the women insists, PAYS FOR THE DATE.

    A Retrosexual opens doors for a lady. Even for the ones that fit that
    term only because they are female.

    A Retrosexual DEALS with IT. Be it a flat tire, break-in into your home, or a natural disaster, you DEAL WITH IT.

    A Retrosexual not only eats red meat, he often kills it himself.

    A Retrosexual doesn't worry about living to be 90. It's not how long you live, but how well. If you're 90 years old and still smoking cigars and drinking, I salute you.

    A Retrosexual does not use more hair or skin products than a woman. Women have several supermarket aisles of stuff. Retrosexuals need an endcap (possibly 2 endcaps if you include shaving goods.)

    A Retrosexual does not dress in clothes from Hot Topic when he's 30
    years old.

    A Retrosexual should know how to properly kill stuff (or people) if need be. This falls under the "Dealing with IT" portion of The Code.

    A Retrosexual watches no TV show with "Queer" in the title.

    A Retrosexual does not let neighbors screw up rooms in his house on
    national TV.

    A Retrosexual should not give up excessive amounts of manliness for women. Some is inevitable, but major re-invention of yourself will only lead to you becoming a froo-froo little wuss, and in the long run, she ain't worth it.

    A Retrosexual is allowed to seek professional help for major mental
    stress such as drug/alcohol addiction, death of your entire family in a freak treechipper accident, favorite sports team being moved to a
    different city, favorite bird dog expiring, etc. You are NOT allowed to
    see a shrink because Daddy didn't pay you enough attention. Daddy was busy DEALING WITH IT. When you screwed up, he DEALT with you.

    A Retrosexual knows how to tie a Windsor knot when wearing a tie - and ONLY a Windsor knot.

    A Retrosexual should have at least one good wound he can brag about getting.

    A Retrosexual knows how to use a basic set of tools. If you can't hammer a nail, or drill a straight hole, practice in secret until you can - or be rightfully ridiculed for the wuss you be.

    A Retrosexual knows that owning a gun is not a sign that your are
    riddled with fear, guns are TOOLS and are often essential to DEAL WITH IT. Plus it's just plain fun to shoot.

    Crying. There are very few reasons that a retrosexual may cry, and none of them have to do with TV commercials, or soap operas. *Sports teams are sometimes a reason to cry, but the preferred method of release is swearing or throwing the remote control. Some reasons a retrosexual can cry include (but are not limited to) death of a loved one, death of a pet (fish do NOT count as pets in this case), loss of a major body part.

    A retrosexual man's favorite movie isn't "Maid in Manhattan" (unless
    that refers to some foxy French maid sitting in a huge tub of brandy or whiskey), or "Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood”. Acceptable ones may include any of the Dirty Harry or Nameless Drifter movies (Clint in
    his better days), Rambo I or II, the Dirty Dozen, The Godfather trilogy, Scarface, The Road Warrior, Die Hard (the first one only), Caddyshack, Rocky I, II, or III, Full Metal Jacket, any James Bond Movie, Raging Bull, Bullitt, any Bruce Lee movie, Apocalypse Now, Goodfellas, Reservoir Dogs, Fight Club, Cool Hand Luke,...and you darn sure better be able to quote at least two lines from Patton!

    When a retrosexual is on a crowded bus and or a commuter train, and a pregnant woman, hell, any woman gets on, that retrosexual stands up and offers his seat to that woman, then looks around at the other so called men still in their seats with a disgusted "you punks" look on his face.

    A retrosexual knows how to say the Pledge properly, and with the correct emphasis and pronunciation. He also knows the words to the Star Spangled Banner.

    A retrosexual will have hobbies and habits his wife and mother do not understand, but that are essential to his manliness, in that they offset the acceptable manliness decline he suffers when married/engaged in a serious healthy relationship - I.E. hunting,
    boxing, shot putting, shooting, cigars, car maintenance.

    A retrosexual knows how to sharpen his own knives and kitchen utensils.

    A Retrosexual man can drive in snow (hell, a blizzard) without
    sliding all over or driving under 20 mph, without anxiety, and
    without high-centering his ride on a plow berm.

    A retrosexual man can chop down a tree and make it land where he wants.

    A retrosexual will give up his seat on a bus to not only any women but any elderly person or person in military dress (except officers above 2nd Lt .) NOTE: The person in military dress may turn down the offer but the retrosexual man will ALWAYS make the offer to them and thank them for serving their country.

    A retrosexual man doesn't need a contract, a handshake is good
    enough. He will always stand by his word even if circumstances change or the other person deceived him.

    A retrosexual man doesn't immediately look to sue someone when he does something stupid and hurts himself. We understand that sometimes in the process of doing things we get hurt and we just DEAL WITH IT.

    I thouht that wa just normal, It's called being a self-suffcient gentleman.
    "These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier
    and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the
    service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the
    love and thanks of man and woman."

    have to agree with that
    Calling an illegal alien an 'undocumented immigrant' is like calling a drug dealer an 'unlicensed pharmacist'

    Love this web definition:

    The opposite of metrosexual. Basically, any typical male who dosen't have a hissy fit over their own image like a shallow ****.

    I pretty sure any John Wayne except "The Quiet Man" should also be on the list of acceptable retrosexual movies.
