Machismo

Any (every) man can brag about his conquests, the notches in his belt little rungs on a ladder baptized in bullshit. Any (every) man can regale you with stories of their swordsmanship or cunning linguistics. Any (let's just be honest and say all) man can try to hold a woman down while pretending to hold her hand. But it takes a REAL man to look a beautiful woman in her emerald moth eyes and say; "Will you teach me how to fish? "
