← Real men find Church too girly

I'm with Saerain on this, I hate the term "Real men" because it implies that gay men or metrosexual men are counterfeit men somehow, like we're made out of paper mache or wool.
It's a phrase used by the type of guy who thinks Jim Davidson is funny and that being a boorish wife abusing, beer swilling, football chanting philistine is the proof of your manhood rather than say a pair of testicles.
As for why the church hasn't already adopted this, it's hard to say, as the sexism and homophobia in the clergy is already well catered for, so what's with the guys in frocks?
