    Ladies which is the kind of guy you currently have in your life????????

    Are You A Male Or A Man

    Man does not carry a grudge
    Male looks for ways to get even
    Man looks to better himself; he invests in his success
    Male complains that he has to stay where he is
    Man gives to his community
    Male takes from his community
    Man is measured by his character
    Male is measured by his sex drive
    Man is a protector of women in general and committed to one woman in particular
    Male views a woman as an object of pleasure, and isn't committed to anything!
    Man word is his bond
    Male has no word, he will tell you what you want to hear
    Man A Real man is a leader

    Male is a follower

    Man thinks with is big head
    Male thinks with his little head
    Man uses his intellect and emotions to make decisions
    Male makes emotional decisions

    Males Are Born

    Men Are Made

    imo, this subject is subjective. a man/male is different things to different people.

    Though I appreciate your opinion, we will agree to disagree. Manhood has some basic things to it's character. I think those have been outlined here

    @ kemestry

    I’m not disagreeing with you, and I respect your opinion. I’m just pointing out that these things are what “you feel” is the difference between a man and a male. It’s like defining who and what is black. Some people think you aren’t black if you don’t eat pigfeet and chittlins.

    You said “Manhood has some basic things to it's character”, but you failed to add “protector of his family” which many people will and do see as being a man.

    In some African cultures you only become a man by going through some kind of ritual ceremony, until then you are seen as a child.

    But like I said, this is subjective b\c another person’s list may be longer /shorter.

    Peace!!

    This is not my opinion, but the observations of another. I think it's quite accurate. Protection of family falls on both parents doesnt it? Moreover, we arent in Africa
