Hello to my fellow disciples of masculinity! I've been a long time reader of the site, but have only recently begun "lurking" on the forum. I'm already glad I decided to become a member.

    For the short version; I'm a college history graduate from a one horse town in northeastern Maine. I grew up on a horse farm, and am an avid outdoorsman. For the last few years since college, I've been enjoying competing in cowboy fast draw and rimfire action shooting. I'm also a voracious reader, and an amateur novelist. (I'm not published yet, but I'm hoping this is the year.) I am lucky enough to have married my college sweetheart a little under two years ago.   Right now I work an office job not worth going into detail about, but I'm trying very hard to start a career in law enforcement. 

    I really enjoy this site, because it offers a well reasoned and wholesome approach to reclaiming the virile, can-do spirit of our forefathers.  The content here within offers a little hope to the future of our collective gender, and it's reclaimation from the petulant man boys and passive aggressive yes men that befoul it's proud history.  

     In closing, it's nice to meet all of you!

Welcome to AoM, Sam.

Welcome friend! Please share your novels. Do you have a website or link where we can read them? Cheers!

Nice to meet you both, and thanks for the warm welcome! As of yet, I don't have any of my older manuscripts online, the result of institutionalized copyright paranoia that my writing department taught me. I've done some short fiction with some of the characters from my novels though, I might put some of that up if folks would enjoy reading it.

Why do American Schools tolerate this?

Recently, one of by biology professors was injured and now is out for two weeks. Now we have this other lecturer filling in for her. The woman is some nature of middle eastern, and thus has an accent, but nothing is objectionably wrong with her use of English. However, she's quiet and has a very soft spoken sort of voice. The combination of the accent and the quietness make her incomprehensible. I can't understand the lecture being delivered. In High school, I even had a substitute teacher who…See More

"Most people don't know the difference between an immigrant and a refugee, or a random refugee and a Convention refugee, so it's safe to say that there are plenty of nuances that are flying over most peoples' heads."

The Barbershop

It's just seems natural that Art of Manliness should have a barbershop group.  My intent of this group is to gather and share general thoughts and experiences concerning barbershops. Anything from a good barbershop that you have found  to pictures and stories of shops you have visited to discussing anything barbershop.  See More
