I've seen this word in some descriptive texts of gender identity and it interests me a lot. I take it to mean how so many 100% straight guys really prefer being with other men in their social lives: playing and watching sports, group activities like poker/card games, guys' night out, collecting and working on cars, other all male activities. With most of the guys I know who identify as straight, they really spend most of their time with other guys rather than women. I wonder if this is because straight guys mainly see women as sexual objects and not really a part of their tribe? Are women not cool to be around in certain ways, including social activities? Do you think this activity is more a middle class or a working class thing? I'd be interested in how the 100% straight men on this site feel about women as friends. Thanks.
