Notions of Manliness.
Today in the lunch room a coworker described a colour as chartreuse. A lot of guys I know would describe chartreuse as,”one of those names women have for a certain shade of a colour,” with a tone bordering on contemptuous. My coworkers are different.
Most of the men I eat lunch with are fly fishermen and most of them tie their own flies…very manly stuff. To do this they need to know their colours so you can tell one of these guys that something is fuchsia and they simply know….No bad jokes with touches of misogyny or homophobia. Simple understanding. It’s nice.
