The Definition of the Man: His iPod

“The way a man wears his earbuds. The way he carries it in his pocket. The way he navigates the scroll wheel. These are the nuances that separate the punks from the stiffs. The dorks from the losers. The mere mortals from the god.”

« Refurbished iPod 20GB $279, 30GB $319, 40GB $379

most of you scare me.  what a pointless article to get worked in to homophobia, sexism and the entire “holier than thou” attitude.

folks, it plays music, is well designed and exceeds in both respects.  thats it. its not a sign of who i am or who i want to be.

I think you’re the guy who asked me out last week… I said ‘no’ then… I’m saying ‘no’ now.

No means ‘no’.

I like my iPod too but these kind of articles are sad. It is just a F**KIN MP3 player, why does it matter how one uses the wheel etc? Stupid people who write this crap.

The stereotypes from the ridicule too.

People need to realize it plays music, it isnt the meaning of life. Like seriously, give it up, you like a piece of plastic and metal, you dont have to bash other people in the process.

Im glad that women dont use ipods.  they would fill it up with stupid shit like mariah carrey or jewel and crap like that.  besides women shouldnt be listening to music anyway, they might get uppity and want to listen to something other than what I am playing and think they can change it.  bullshit!  obviously the only reason there is a pink ipod is for gay men.  The ipod i own is the Man that I am.  oh how proud that makes me.

Your right Wes, I think the pink ipod mini should come pre-loaded with 800 different versions of “It’s Raining Men”.

What, are we now in middle school again?

Get over yourself. If you’re confident in your straight-ness, you won’t have to go to extreme lengths to ‘prove yourself.’ I’m not gay, but I’m definitely not a ‘phobe, nor do I go around iPod threads saying, “Look at me! I’m straight! Nope, definitely not gay!”

LOL, no one really cares.
