Default Congrats you are a man now

For the boys....

This produced some good discussion at girls puberty so i thought i would make a boys version..... basically, question is this - at what point do you consider yourself a man? Like is it an age or maturity thing? A particular puberty milestone? What do you think?

When I can take care of myself without relying on my parents all the time, e.g. food, shelter, transport

It's a really arbitrary thing - some guys can be 16 and be supporting themselves in a loving, stable relationship. Some guys can be 40 and still living at home with their parents. I guess we attribute being a standard, self-sufficient adult to being a 'man'/'woman'.

^ this, a man takes care of himself (and his family if he has one), and a woman does the same.

Probably a bit shallow, but I feel some guys big and a bit of a stud once he's had sex.

To make a general observation, guys are less likely to be snowflakes and be upset about being told they're a man now. Or to be upset that another guy is considered a man earlier than they are. That's rather shallow.

Never thought about it. As people have said it's arbitrary. People who say there is a specific point are just wrong imo. Turning from a child to adult is not an event. It is a transition - which occurs at different times for different people and includes different milestones for different people - it's not all about one thing.

This was obviously for me because you called me snowflake in the girls thread. Why are you being so mean to me?!?

If it was for you I would have directed it to you.
And personal issues should be addressed in private, not public.

Like someone said, and it’s shallow, but getting laid pretty much definitely means you’re a man. But I don’t necessarily feel that way, just going by what most people are too afraid to admit.

Well technically, boys legally become men at 18. But I don't think that's exactly what you meant, and I certainly would question whether some 18 year olds are "men" based on their immature behavior.

I would say you're a man when you are responsible, organized, have a job and can sustain yourself hopefully, as well as when you show a certain level of maturity in your day to day life. Physical traits could include hair and size I suppose but I don't know if that's necessarily "required." And sexual experiences of any kind are not necessarily a requirement either, though for many it may be, especially once that person is in their late teens into their early/mid 20s which means they probably had certain kinds of sexual experiences anyways.

I guess the biological criteria would be that a man is a person who has finished with puberty, whose brain has finished most or all of its development (as it is often said that teenagers' brains are still developing), your body size and muscle mass and all other biological characteristics come to a standstill as far as no further growth or major changes will occur.

The first time I ejaculated (and my voice hadn't even changed yet) I sort of felt like I was now a man because "I could get a girl pregnant and father a child". (Actually, I later learned that that soon, boys are not yet producing enough healthy sperm to actually get that job done.)
I then again felt like I was finally a man after the first time I ejaculated inside a girl. (Biologically, that's what the male of the species is required to do - inseminate the female.)
I think I will really feel like a man when I'm married and supporting a family and start having kids.

I think when u take responsibility for urself and
u don't have to rely on someone else to guide u.
In some cases u can b a man at 16 cause u have
to make ur own decisions or at 21 when u reach
the age of majority.

I think manhood is more of a maturity thing than an age thing. I mean, they say that youre a man when you come of age (18), but I personally think it happens when you stop acting like you have no responsibilites and step up and begin to take care of yourself.

Even if a guy is 40+, lives with his parents and still gets allowance, it would still be weird to call him a boy, even if he still is mentally. xD

Give me pizza covered in pineapple. Give me burgers loaded with pickles. Give me a steak burned to rubber and drowned in ketchup. I'll eat it all and sing hallelujah. But I'm begging you. Please don't serve me tuna. I'm a human being, not a cat.

It is said by somebody (I forget who) that 4 things are necessary to make a man: 1. That he should plant a tree. 2. That he should write a book. 3. That he should get a child. 4. That he should build a house.
