I've never particularly cared for men who had to defend their manliness. I am naturally conditioned to like my build and my proclivities but it doesn't go much beyond that. Why blokes have to retreat to their sheds muttering into their mo about getting away from the missus for a bit is not a question that gets to the heart of maleness for me.
Neither do I think that we've shown evidence of all being athletic or sedentary. Many of us are a little of each.
Some of the coolest guys I know are not obsessed with their sexuality or their masculinity. There's too many other diversions.
