Manliness points are subjective.
The system you have specified above, despite having some quite relevant points, is not the only system to go by. It's more realistic than idealistic, but seeing as manliness is more of an ideal than a reality, a more ideal list would suffice.
For instance, I disagree that a tea party has to deduct points. For instance, if you are sitting around a table, drinking tea, and you are with another person, that makes you a party of two enjoying tea.
And that's a tea party. Drinking tea does not make one less manly, it's the way you do it.
And, this is where the whole manliness factor comes in. Manliness is equal to badassery, and if you are drinking tea in a badass way, your manliness points would increase drastically, as, to my knowledge, there are no ways of drinking tea in a badass way, and seeing as it would be hard to pull off, you'd get more points for that. Most people stay neutral for drinking tea, but one would lose points for drinking out of a really sappy cup or drinking Unfortunate herbal tea or putting sugar in it.
Also, I disagree that being a dick = manly. You have to going about being a dick in the right way.
You can't just act like arsehole to anyone, they have to be either noticably pathetic, but not an easy target, or an arrogant arsehole who everyone hates and needs to be taken down a peg.
Most of all, you need to get away with being an arsehole. If you get punched, or the guy gets you angry, or his own back, then all of what you've done has been for nothing. And, it all needs to look effortless.
On the subject of getting punched, the best way to be manly in a fight is either just beat the crap out of the guy and make him seem as pathetic as possible, or let him have the edge, then use that edge to exploit his every weakness.
Manliness isn't about strength, it's about wit. Strength helps, but in the end, a strong quick-to-anger idiot is easily out-witted by someone with half a brain.
And that's my opinion on the subject. Bear in mind, I am probably talking about more of an ideal which you'd use for perhaps fictional characters instead of real-life people.
As manliness irl doesn't really exist.
feel free to ask me to elaborate on any of the points i have made
