Friday Fun: I am Three-Quarters Man

Esquire asks the very important question: “Are you a man?” It’s “a good thing to be, mostly,” they say. “Even, of course, if you’re a woman.” To find out if you’re lucky enough to be a man, you can take this handy-dandy — and pretty funny — quiz. I took it and it turns out I am 3/4 man. Drew is going to be … surprised when I tell him the news. I guess that goes for my OB, too.

So, how manly are you??

    I’m going to credit your little Wendrew for pumping up your man score.

    My results were the less exciting “Not Quite a Man”, which I already knew. 😉

    More or less I am 3/4 man….fortunately I don’t place my manhood on naked women mud flaps or “bedding a woman.” I wanted an all of the above answer for which picture of that creepy dude made me most angry…I couldn’t decide which one infuriated me more.

    I, too, am 3/4 of a man. I can’t wait to make silver_dragon_boy take this to see if he can take back the pants in our relationship!

      I’m 3/4 too, and I don’t think my boyfriend would score quite as high, lol!

      Same here. I am willing to bet my dear boyfriend is half man at most. He wears corduroy pants and doesn’t have a gun. Not manly at all. 😉

      I think the time I wore corduroy pants, a cardigan, and striped socks on the same day really put me over the edge.

        I do that atleast weekly

  • MsBorgia June 10, 2011, 2:30 pm

    I’m also 3/4 man. This test is suspect.

    I got that I have 3/4 of a man inside me, too! I’m not complaining, though.

    If there were questions like, “Do you run and scream when you see a spider?” or “Do you like to shop for shoes?”, I’m sure that my results would have been significantly different.

    More or less, I am apparently three-quarters of a man. Although those quarters are probably automatically void since I took the quiz while a Sex and the City rerun was playing on the E! channel in the background. Therefore, I am an enigma – otherwise known as “woman”.

    3/4ths here as well – I am making the husband take it tonight to see who is manlier. I think the humane traps made my feminine while he believes chipmunks and squirrels are in the Varmint Cong.

    3/4 of a man! I figured that though- I’m not a really girly girl–Aside from my love of cats, E! and white wine 🙂

    I’m not quite a man – a bit disappointing, was hoping for something more interesting. I think I’ll go back and try to be total man.

      Now I got ”
      Fully man
      There are men and there are men. You belong in both groups.”
      Still kind of boring, but what do you expect from a men’s magazine, lol.

    As long as that remaining 25% covers the boobage and tailage sectors, I don’t see a problem.

    I got 3/4 of a man,too.


    I’ll definitely have the boy take it tonight. All he needs to get is 1/4 and we can be a full man…

    3/4 Man here too! I think it’s skewed. My bet is the long hair and not being Samoan.

      Yet another reason to bemoan not being samoan

    3/4 of a man.

    probably because I’m an engineer and I work at a steel mill with all dudes.

    ever noticed how dudes have pms?

    Hmm I got more or less I’m 3/4 of a man. I’m blaming not being all man on this website, and the The Frisky from when I used to read that! How am I going to explain this to my girlfriend!

    3/4 too. Although I just picked some random answers for the ones that didn’t translate to us Brits!

    Obviously EVERYBODY is rated 3/4 male by this hoax. Of course I took it and, you guessed it 75% so maybe the point is we’re all in the same gene pool with only small differences. I very glad to be male because I have no clue about how to be otherwise. The idea of having to squat to pee is beyond my comprehension, ditto the visit from Aunt Flow. Imagining giving birth is worse then all the horror movies combined with dental surgery scan Novocain. Boobs on the other hand might be fun but what do I know. Earrings, especially being pierced, are a pass as are high heels and hairdos. Painted nails are interesting as is fashion. Raising a boy child is easily done by men or women. All you have to do keep him alive until puberty then hormones do 90% of the work. A girl child is way more complex and very few if any men are capable of it.
