Blackheart, sometimes you just have to cowboy up and put on the "not so masculine" pants. After all, it's not how the world sees you that should matter, but, rather, how you see yourself. The foolhardy feel the helmet isn't "cool" and don't wear them either; natural selection at work. In the end, no one forces anybody else to be comfortable and safe. And FYI, bicycle saddles only hurt if you don't use them regularly. The cartoon was funny, nonetheless.
