    I cannot change a tire, I hate doing DIY,I love getting a manicure and I am sure other guys of my generation would agree.

    OP your reference to "real male" triggers me as a self identifying attack helicopter

    You can enjoy a manicure and have the skill required to change a tyre or knock up a shelving unit. They aren't mutually exclusive.

    It's easy to blame changing concepts of masculinity, but the reality is anyone, regardless of gender/self-indentifying/whatever, who can't change a tyre or do a bit of DIY is just incompetent.
