Do I Have To Do That To be a Gentleman?

Do I have to wear well ironed suit, ties and clean black shoes to be a gentlemen? Hell no! Am not among those who wear suits and ties, who keep their hair well combed and who speaks softly. If according to you, that’s what makes me a gentleman, then, am so sorry, I better not be a gentleman. I have never considered suits, ties, well combed hair, soft vocals, and sentences full of thank you, necessary to make me a gentleman.

I don’t deny that am not a gentleman. I am a gentleman, I care for other fellow humans and try my best to do good thing to other fellow human beings. But I have never considered suits, ties and so on to make me look like a gentleman. Many of you would not agree with me, but why I hate suited people is, they try to hide their imperfections by wear suits and ties.

To me a real gentleman is one who is being himself, not trying to hide who he is and being helpful to people around him. I have seen many so-called gentlemen at the best behavior and manner while he is with the world, but a disgusting devil inside. Unfortunately, these kinds of people are tagged by the world as the real example of gentlemen that we all should follow.

I love wearing black t-shirts with pictures of my favorite bands (I have only t-shirts with my favorite bands) and torn jeans. I don’t like to comb my hair, but I try my best to keep it as clean as I can. I talk very straight forward on what I believe, not diplomatic like those suited gentlemen. If I don’t like something I say it straight away. I also treat women with respect, unlike those many suited gentlemen who keep chains of mistress who are old enough to be their grand daughters. I never feel the need to open doors for the female gender because I don’t find it necessary. Because we are all blessed with two hands to do our own work. But if someone has his/hers hands full, I don’t mind opening the door for them plus giving them a hand. I also don’t mind giving up my seat to seniors and women when am in a bus or in a train.

Even though I have stated being yourself, but this does not includes farting and Burping in public. I love to fart and burp, but I enjoy it when am alone. It’s an entertainment that I don’t want to share when am in public. But whenever am alone, I take full advantage of it. Am sure none can deny that they don’t enjoy this.

I like heavy metal, black band t-shirts, torn jeans and long hair, if it does not makes me a gentleman then I don’t want to be a part of that! You can happily get lost in your world of hypocrisy!


  1. Suits are out of style anyway. You fit in with most of the rest of the population. These days we wear jeans to work, and that's at a law firm. Times have changed.
