Manliness

Manliness, assertiveness, power, control. It means different things to different people, but, like the men that lust after it, it's ultimately pretty simple. Cracked analyzes what it means to be a REAL man using a simple game

Just The Facts

  1. If you unironically refer to the room you relax in as your "man-cave", you are a rock man
  2. If you refer to the room you relax in as your "AV hub/setup", you are a scissors man
  3. If you refer to the room you relax in as "the command center", you are a paper man

A note on manliness

Don't be fooled into thinking that one type of manliness is inherently better than the next! It's true that in high school the rock men are the ones who claim the title of "real men", with the others being suspiciously feminine, but the tables will turn after high school. Try impressing a girl with just a huge bicep, when the scissors man is making money hand over fist as a trained professional and the paper man manages dozens of men just like rocky there.
