The Effects Of Unemployment On Men And Their Manliness

The effects of unemployment goes way beyond just financial and emotional – it affects how men feel about being men. With unemployment at near historic highs, how do men deal with the lack of dignity and well-being?

Huge Cojones Of The Week: Governor Rod Blagojevich

This is the inaugural post of a new weekly installment here on Return To Manliness, Huge Cojones Of The Week.  The title pretty much says it all, but for our Spanish language challenged out there, cojones means balls.
Every week, I name the individual who displays amazing brass clock weights which we can all say “Wow, now that guy has some freakin stones.”  The person needs to be a guy (but not always), somewhat famous (but the 15 minute version works well too), and simply could give a crap about the …

Rod Marinelli And Rob Parker Give Us An Amazing Lesson

The NFL’s Detroit Lions are the worst team in professional history.  I can say this and not feel like I will incur the wrath of any die hard Detroit Lions fans out there, because I am a lifelong one myself.  They lost their 15th game this past Sunday and are one win away from doing what no other team has ever done in the modern era – go winless in a season.  Probably the most un-manliness thing in pro-sports.  Good times.
Rod Parker of The Detroit News and ESPN’s First Take, …

Return To Manliness Roundup: Financial Armageddon Edition

Financial Armageddon
I am a financial management consultant by trade and I have been diligently looking for work lately.  I’ve had several opportunities which were sure things that slipped away with the speed of my 401k value from September 15th – this is the day Lehman Brothers filed for BK.   That changed everything.
Everyone, and I mean everyone, is locking it down right now.  Commerce is barely moving and my line of work, like so many others, is viable only when the business is working.
This financial crisis is one for the ages.  …

Manliness I Learned This Week: Job Search Edition

This is the start of a new series which I hope to share what I learned this week concerning my own manliness or lack thereof. I am not an expert in area and I feel comfortable confessing this with my readers. My story is one of a very normal life, in my opinion, but some may say extraordinary in a few aspects.
As most who read this blog know, I am in the process of finding a new job. This fact alone is quite daunting considering the sickness …

Time Away’s Been Nice, But Gotta Get Back On The Horse

Where have you been RTM?
RTM has essentially been shut down for a month. I have been MIA and I apologize. I would love to find the perfect political excuse for why I have abandoned this effort, but there is no excuse – just reasons.
For the good folks who have supported this site in the past and want more manliness drivel, let’s get to it. For those who have relished in my inactivity and would rather see me just go away, go grab some Pepto and hunker down …

Attack Plan: American Political Parties

I think we can all agree George Washington, our first President, was a great American. If anyone disagrees with this (and the Brits don’t count) then you’re an idiot. Not to be crass, but you simply don’t get it.
GW put his life on the line and had to watch (and command) many patriots to their death for a cause – a belief – an ideal. After he helped kick British ass off our great land, he then, very reluctantly, agreed to serve as our first President. …

Interesting Reflection: Man Drought Is Fact Of Dating Life

There are some really good articles floating around in today’s ether on the lack of manliness in all men and the lack of men that possess any of it at all.  As I was reading this article from The New Zealand Herald, it made me contemplate this young woman’s dilema.  The article is titled Man drought is fact of dating life.
Here is an excerpt from that article:
Young, gorgeous, successful – and single. For Christine Kitching, 24, Auckland’s “man drought,” is not a vague concept, but a reality.
The high-flying Air New Zealand …
