Chapter 11

The masculinity race in America has, unsurprisingly, produced some monumentally silly behavior. Women are flowing into previously manly trades, and men desperately try to stay ahead in the race by resorting to beards, tattoos, trucks, and general louthood.

You want to be a real man?
Open a business and put some people on your payroll. Be responsible not just for your own income and life, but for three or thirty or three hundred families. Be the guy who, if you screw up, a hundred families go hungry.

Mister motorcycle poser Real Man goober, put yourself on the line like that.
