During the past decade, young urban men susceptible to Pop Culture’s influence (based in part on most women’s romanticized images of such) have both aspired and claim to be “thugs,” then “soldiers,” and now must possess the latest culturally-inspired attribute about themselves—a “swagger”—in order to be considered either a real man or to be a complete and socially-accepted person.
As a man, I am personally sick of being sacked with the burden of having to rise to the expectations of someone’s image of what they feel a “real man” to be.

Oh just pass me some raw meat and let me belch and scratch in peace.

i only swagger when I've had too many beers... then i puke in the parking lot and drive 20 miles an hour down the highway home.
If you're worried about people wanting you to swagger, just punch those people in the face.
It boils down to the "bad boy' image .apparently some women flock to these types...
