If you want advice, have a question that needs to be answered, or want to hear my views on manliness, why not leave a question in the comments section, or alternatively, leave one on my Facebook group.
footballers are often known as being quite manly, John Terry, Wayne Rooney, Steven Gerrard (and Dave Nugent if you must) etc are not exactly people you would describe as effeminate. So who is the most unmanly footballer of the present or recent past? Cristiano Ronaldo? David Ginola? Robert Pires? El Hadji Diouf? Perhaps most members of the Italian national side for the last 4 or 5 major tournaments? I’d like to hear your theory on this one”– Danny Dodd
Well, Danny, while some footballers are very concerned with their looks, there is one more so than any other, and shocks me that you have overlooked him.
This one is a joint effort…
stu this [a Facebook group] is busy! x (if you havnt already write about how men put kisses at the end of texts to eachother as being unmanly, dont say i dont ever do anything for you mate)– Ed Poulter
I’ve decided to combine both of these as Danny asked the question, but Ed originally posed this.
The big date
I was just wondering if you could help me out with some advice. I was thinking about straightening my hair, wearing manscara, listening to mcfly and on top of this, going on a date with a boy… would this be considered too unmanly??
Thank you for your question, Mr X. I’m glad there are some serious questions coming through and I hope you aren’t too nervous about your date with this boy.
Ok stu, here’s one for you.
Is it unmanly for me to like Girls aloud (here comes the controversial bit) not just because they are all fit, including the ginger one, but because i genuinely like their songs? sounds of the underground and jump for my love are particular favourites of mine. I’d love to buy an album of theirs one day, but I’m scared of the unmanly repercussions and potential backlash from my peers that may happen as a result of me doing so. – Scott Wilkins
Thanks for the question, Scott. But had you been bothered to search around my blog, you would have been able to see my views on Girls Aloud under the ‘Films/Music you shouldn’t like, but do’ section.
Stu…Is it unmanly to have man boobs?
(and I second scotts comment – me and him genuinely enjoyed watching them at V last year) – Simon Hayman
Yeah, Simon, I know you enjoyed watching Girls Aloud. Thanks for leaving me! Anyway, man boobs…
Stu, being a man of little body hair, I do not have too much of a problem in terms of needing to remove it (nether-regions aside). It would, however, interest me to know whether you consider it unmanly to remove body hair – i.e. in the case Frank Lampard. (No kisses) – James Clarke
No kisses? Harsh! Like you said, Jimothy, you’ve never been much of a hairy one. I’ve never seen you with a beard, so I don’t imagine you to have a hairy chest. As for your nether-regions… I will let you decide what you do with that hair.
“hi stu, as you may very well no, i am a huge fan of tom cruise, and rarely have a bad comment to say about him. however, i also have a certain hate for ugg boots, worn by… i would say 80% of the women and girls you see in any shopping centre. in an earlyer cruise film, (eyes wide shut) tom sports a pair of these boots…this is waay before this mad love for them. can you be unmanley for wearing something that is worn by women 10 years later?” – Thomas Winter
I do know of your love for Tom Cruise. I see you have a lot in common with him, mainly the name and the height problem… mainly the lack of it.
