    "Poetry offends masculinity"

I want this on my guitar, a la "This Machine Kills Facists"

Bomber jacket. Across the back. Surely by now you've gotten some 2nd-hand superduper embroidery machine.

No? Here's your excuse.

There isn't anything inherently non-masculine about poetry, though, is there?. Whitman, Frost, Kipling, etc. I feel like the person who said that probably equates "masculinity" with "not feeling any emotions whatsoever" and interprets "not having emotions" as "being reactionary and fearful of everything and calling that rationality" which is certainly an antithesis to poetry but I don't think it has much to do with masculinity.
