To Man bag Or Not, Your Input Needed

So I have been toying with the idea of getting some sort of "man bag" more in the lines of a messenger bag to carry all my stuff in, as I always seem to not have the items I need/want when I need/want them as inevitably they are ether siting at home because they would not fit in my pockets or in the car because they would not fit in my pockets and are thus not available.  Not to mention that my pockets have a tendency to get over stuffed with out even having the things that I need and want all being there. 

How ever I can't decide if a man bag messenger bag is to gay or not, I know strange coming from a guy who routinely wears necklaces and rings.  How ever it dose nag at me the thought that such a thing might be to gay.  How ever it would be convenient especially not to have to constantly sit on my wallet and all the bulk that is associated with it and the cards in it (license insurance, debit, credit, rewards etc) as well as to not constantly have my keys jabbing into my leg from my over stuffed key pocket. (that and ripping holes in my pockets) I have recently been toying with the idea of possibly picking up and using one of these two Dodge messenger bags, or but am not sure if the idea is any good, and I don't know any one that I can ask the idea of.  As it is my friend keeps telling me she things that I should get a man bag and that all men should have a man bag instead of just stuffing things in their pockets.

So what do you guys think, is it a good idea?  Should I take the leap, and should I pick up one of those two bags?  Thank you for your feedback it is much apretaited!


  1. All i can say about messenger bags is that many str8 guys carry them. My son used one until it literally fell apart.

    I would vote on the side of getting one. If your really have that much stuff to carry around go for it. The trick is to loop it over your chest, and carry it around your hip. Don't wear it on your shoulder cause that reads purse!

  2. Thank you for the feed back! :-) I have noticed lots of guys with messenger bags, and yeah the over the chest is the normal way that they tend to be worn. Yeah I have lots of crap that it wold be nice to have handy, plus my phone and keys are hard to fit in my pockets and get out, especially when I waer pants that fit and are not way to baggy.

Insight Into Myself From Article Together Alone: The Epidemic Of Gay Loneliness

So I recently read this article on The Huffington Post Hightline called Together Alone: The Epidemic Of Gay Loneliness this article is one that I would highly recommend reading.  It is an article that touched me in a significant way.  The article fouces on why even thought the gay community has come a long way in gaining equal rights, it still suffers from high rates of suicide, depression, anxiety and substance abuse.  The article points out that "are between 2 to 10 times more likely then straight people to take their own life. Where twice as likely to have a major depressive episode" And this pattern holds up in countries that where even early adopter to things like gay marriage.  While there virtually no study on the subject in the US in Canada it has been found that more gay men a year die from suicide them they do for HIV/AIDs if those finding are to hold true in the US suicide could be the next major epidemic with in the gay community taking countless number of lives…

When We Rise Review.

I know that I am late to the game on When We Rise on ABC, but I have just finished watching it on demand.  I would say if you have not watched it, it is a must watch.  The series is very well put together, and it gets you wrapped up in it from the very start, and you will want to binge watch the whole series in one sitting, This the cinematography in this series is first rate, and the use of music helps to increase the emotional impact of this series, I have to admit that I teared up multiple times through out the series, as you get so deeply engrossed in what is going on that emotionally you wined up placing yourself into what is going on.  While I wish that they had put in a few more things in the gay rights movement it really dose a very thorough job of showing the fight for equality.  More after the jump.

Proud To Be: why i'm proud to be the man that I am.

So You Tube has created a hash tag to help celebrate pride month (especially in the wake of Orlando), I thought that I would do a blog post in the spirit of the prompt as I have not had time to make a video, and I am not sure when or if I will.  However I still want to show my pride, not just as a gay man but as a person in general, as I think that all of myself sort of melds together.
