(redirected from dick-measuring contest)
dick measuring contest
vulgar slang A petty competition among individuals (usually men) who are trying to prove that they are better at something than the others. You’re all good golfers, OK? Now can we please stop this ridiculous dick measuring contest? I hate how these political debates always seem to turn into a dick measuring contest, with each candidate trying to outdo the others.
