What does it mean to be a manly man in today’s world? The definition may vary from person to person, but certain professions have long been associated with masculinity. From the rugged and physically demanding to the nurturing and selfless, these professions embody qualities that members of an online community deem traditionally masculine. Check out these 12 masculine jobs for men.
1. Raising Champions: Being a Good Father
The top-voted profession was being a good father. One user mentions that being a real man means raising your children well and respecting your wife. It doesn’t get any more masculine than this!
2. Caped Crusader: The Brooding Hero
Batman is a popular choice for many members but not for the reasons you think. As one person points out, anything which includes being broody and emotionally withdrawn is just manly! Why be vulnerable when you can be mysterious and broody?
3. Domestic Dynamo: Tackling Chores with Masculine Grace
In addition to being a great dad, nothing can beat a husband who helps his wife with chores and caretaking. A woman admits she finds it incredibly cute when she sees a guy cook and take care of his space.
4. Power and Grit in the Workforce
Underground miners, linemen, smelters, welders, you name it! These workers are the most hardcore laborers that help us access resources from the comfort of our homes.
5. From Arena to Legend: Gladiatorial Masculinity
Men fighting other men for entertainment is perhaps the most quintessentially masculine thing one can do. At least, that’s what the Romans thought. However, I am unsure if the gladiators were actually glad about it.
6. Braving the Flames: Why Women Love Firemen
Who doesn’t love a good firefighter? The work is essential, crucial, and selfless. And as one person mentions, women love these guys.
7. The Maritime Man: Winter Storms and Bearded Tales
Fishermen are incredibly resilient and steadfast in what they can do. One member envisions a fisherman in the Bering Sea during winter. Experiencing a winter storm miles from anyone with a deep black ocean beneath you will make anyone grow a beard!
8. Lessons in Masculinity: The Male Kindergarten Teacher
Now, this one’s my favorite. One person aptly states that you’re unstoppable if you can retain your masculinity after acting like Miss Rachel for twenty kids all day. Another person mentions how they knew a male kindergarten teacher who would bag the attention of all the single moms because of his charm and gentleness with children.
9. The Daring Rescuer: Masculinity Soaring High
We’re not just talking about any helicopter rescuer. We’re talking about one who drinks scotch in a cardigan, pens down yearning poetry about nature, volunteers at a pet shelter on the weekends, and still finds time to be good to his family. At least, that’s the vision one member gives us. Needless to say, a second user finds this description to be suspiciously specific.
10. Warriors of Valor: Military Special Operations
The military sector is incredibly male-dominated due to the heavy masculine association with roles such as navy seals, army rangers, and green berets, to name a few!
11. Rigorous Pioneers: Oil Rig Workers and Their Masculine Valor
Oil rig workers are also a popular job for men among forum members because of their intense work. A member in the construction sector admits nothing comes close to these guys!
12. Finding Masculinity in Following Your Dreams
To conclude our list, here’s the most masculine profession: doing what you like and doing it with honesty and diligence, says one. It ain’t much, but it’s honest work!
