    They're closing linked to a nice gut, but have a feminine conotation to them - the anthisis of a rugged, manly beer gut. So are they welcome here or is it a 'don't ask, don't tell' policy?

    ah the moobs... have to say they are not very flattering or very functional either :(

    I would class them under socially acceptable, but morally reprehensible.

    The medical term is called "Gynecomastia" find out more here. :o

    Gyno and "man boobs" can be two very different things.

    Some dude who is simple fat and overweigth, carrying a lot of adipose tissue ( fat cells ) can have man boobs in appearance if he is genetically inclined towards storing fat in the front of his body and particularly his chest area.

    Gyno is a different thing, normally caused by a very high test:est conversion rate within a dude and he will then proceed to develop actually female breast tissue, though on a very small scale.

    i know this is a cliché but had to post some of this from seinfeld, when kramer develops the 'bro' man bra.

    George and Kramer sit one side of a booth, facing Jerry. George is wearing a
    purple shirt. Kramer's eating a sandwich heartily. George looks as if he might
    never want to eat again.

    GEORGE: My father opened his shirt...

    JERRY: Yeah, and?

    GEORGE: (nods to Kramer) Tell him, Kramer.

    KRAMER: (matter of fact) He had breasts.

    George nods, Jerry has a confused expression. Kramer keeps on eating. Jerry
    thinks for a moment, George can't even look anyone in the eye.

    JERRY: What d'you mean, breasts?

    GEORGE: (waves his hands) Big breasts!

    JERRY: So what? A lot of older men have that.

    KRAMER: No, not these. These were real hooters.

    Jerry pulls a face at the thought.

    GEORGE: I was throwing up all night. It was like my own personal Crying Game.

    KRAMER: Well, maybe you're gonna get 'em too, George.

    GEORGE: (worried) Yeah, that's right. What if it's a genetic thing, like father
    like son?

    JERRY: But, your father's not bald.

    GEORGE: No, no no. That skips a generation. The baldness gene comes from your
    grandfather.

    JERRY: Then I suppose the bosom gene comes from your grandmother.

    George snaps his finger and points, in agreement with Jerry. He continues to
    look deeply worried.

    KRAMER: You know, Frank can't be too comfortable with those things clanging
    around. He should wear something for support.

    GEORGE: You mean like a bra?

    KRAMER: A bra is for ladies. I'm talking about a support undergarment
    specifically designed for men.

    JERRY: Boy, that brain never stops working, does it?

    KRAMER: I tell you, I'm gonna go noodle with this.
