OLD SCHOOL MAN: Taking it Outside

Raging bull
Raging bull

At one time when a Man had a problem with another Man they would take it outside and settle it like gentlemen. Whoever was left standing was the winner and neither Man held a grudge, as far as they were concerned their disagreement was now over.

After the fight both Men would shake each others hand and have a beer, for many Old School Men this is how they first met some of their lifelong friends. Back then their wasn’t a more honest way to truly know what another man was made of than slugging it out in an Old School fight.

But now if an Old School Man even suggested to some kuala and coke sipping metrosexual ‘man’ that they take their disagreement outside he is branded “uncivilized” or “low-class”. Or even more likely metro-man will call the police on his pink Motorola razor.

This is just another example of how doing anything masculine these days is considered bad or even criminal.
