It’s nice to hear there are other people tired of the ‘T-man’ crap. The funny thing is, as Iscariot pointed out, it seems that the original intent of the ‘T-man’ was to exemplify all of the characteristics not found in the general populace. Drive, sacrifice, work ethic, respect, compassion, open mindedness… just a few of the traits that make a ‘T-man’ - in my opinion.
The funny thing is, lately, it seems that a T-man is just another dumb, think-with-my-dick, musclehead who thinks he owns the world because he has 18 inch guns.
Steve, there are a few 'real T-men' on this forum. I'm not going to name anyone because I don't want to make a mistake and leave anyone out. The funny thing is, Demo seems to get raked over the coals frequently for 'kissing up' to the women. It seems to me that he actually has a clue, and from what he says he's got a good woman at his side... so evidently he's doing something right.
I have to agree on Avoids as well. He and I have had our share of battles, but he has yet to be rude or nasty... not that he's a push over, but holds his own in a respectful manner. In other words he says 'Shut up Michelle' in the nicest way possible. *laugh*
I don't see either of these guys as a push over, they both just choose to treat other people respectfully. Yeah, they have both gotten nasty sometimes, but often the mud slinging is started by another party and they just return in kind.
No, I don't agree with everything TC says, and I don't think that his views about women are correct all the time, but I think this thread needs to be deferred to him, so he can tell us what HE intended it to mean.
