 'real' men is not enough, you need other flavours e.g.

natural, integer, rational, irrational, complex, hypercomplex, irreducible, ideal, (trans)finite, transcendental, tropical (new breed)
(trans)finite -> transvestite?
I can imagine the qualities of most of your suggestions, but integer men?  
Have to think about that one on my way to the farm stand.  :)
There could be combinations too - complex ideal transcendental, all together, for example.

'integer' in Dutch would correspond to 'integer'
Also
Boolean men :D

Haha. I see.

Boolean men would have a certain logic.

If they exist then we might also see Bayesian men and Gaussian ones too.

Knightian men are gallant and courageous, but uncertain on some level.

Karma-men are a greater concern.  
Hope the Gods are kind in that case!  The subtitles won't matter if they are not.  :D

More ideas: 

Fractal-men aka Julia-set men (do you recall Tilda Swinton in Orlando?

Bucky ball men (No, I am not being rude! They have a wonderful structured way about them.)

Fractal-men would be Man del Brot, what?

Those poor Bucky ball men have nanotubes!

Ah, very clever on Man del Brot.  But I am surprised at your second comment.
You do realize how stable and robust the Bucky ball is?  Carbon, diamonds, charcoal - what more could you want?
They have unique chemistry too.
However, you may enjoy this: Nanotubular Bells

Ah, and if diamonds are a girl's best friend then where does that leave our poor buckyball man?

Will he be forced to say carbonvoyage when his girl goes off with some Rock?

The Rock is ok, but I think a torsion-free Abelian man would be more interesting in conversation.
