    The point is, Jay, that you're perceiving that these things make you a target. They don't. But, in your thinking like this, and possibly reacting to other people on the street - you perpetuate it.

    I agree that a man with a small handbag does look unusual - as in the main male clothing is loose enough to get the small items into pockets - unusual however does not mean you need to label them with a sexual preference.

    If I perceive it, whats stopping everyone else? to my knowledge, gay men aren't bothered what people think about them anyways, they just do/wear what they want.

    If only I could pull of skinny jeans... but then I couldn't fit my keys and phone in them lol

    You and I both know the human race as a collective group doesn't have an ounce of common sense (August 2011 Riots) just look at chavs, If I was to walk round Meadowhall wearing a "man bag" I would pretty much expect to get jumped by some chavs.

    EDIT: maybe it's just Sheffield that has this problem lol

    Theres nothing wrong with manbags. The size of smartphones and tablets, with wallets and bottle of water etc hard to fit into pockets.

    The rest of the world use them no problems. Its just when you get to the mindless childish British adults who come out with, gay, homo, just for girls etc.

    Its the 21st Century, not the 1800's. If a guy wants to wear a stylish shoulder bag to carry his belongings, then so be it. Deal with it and carry on with your life.

    I don't think I've ever seen anyone agree with you about anything. You're very odd.

    There have been rare occasions, the existance of the Walking Dead season 3 thread proved that, and Nexus seems to agree with me a lot of the time too

    I wouldn't call it odd, I'd call it "individual"

    We should put together a guide on Mansbags for future generations guidance. I shall start off with the right and wrong way to hold a bag.

    ^^^ Right because it's Indiana Jones, wrong because it's an empty bag, in my opinion men should not carry empty bags. If they need to carry an empty bag they should put the bag inside another bag so they then have no empty bag.

    Right use for a man bag - Practicality, you have stuff to carry that either won't fit in your pockets or it's not safe to do so.

    ^^^^ I've cut my nutsack before by carrying a screwdriver in my pocket

    Wrong use for a man bag - Decorative/fashion accessory.

    Revenge of the manbag... I am now being Google-stalked by bag adverts after clicking some of the links in the thread.

    I need to go click on a few axe adverts quickly.
