Of all the four archetypes laid out in the humor piece (Real Men, Real Roleplayers, Loonies, and Munchkins) Real Men are the ones I identify with least. Yes, being a bad ass is cool. But for some reason this means playing the BSF. Of course you can screw around with roleplaying yourself as a great warrior leader, but the fact that you have no social skills (or skills period really) tends to put a damper on that. I came to D&D during the 3.5 edition. You know, the edition where fighters end up as little more than pack mules after a few levels. This has quite colored my experience of D&D. So not a huge fan of the Real Man archetype.
