As part of my research requirements for psychology, I've been spending many hours writing up a meta analysis (study of past compiled research) on the nice guy stereotype, and I thought this would be…Continue
"Crap. I just went back and re-read your original comment. I must have glanced over it *very* quickly because I misread the first words as "female alphas" instead of "false alphas". Well, that's your explanation why I jumped…"
"No, the criticism is fine. I'll look over the studies you sent me and adjust accordingly.
The reason is the inevitable antagonistic and personal insults that are without need, ultimately acting as a general environment of hostility rather than…"
"Natural inclination? Really? The notion that human females can't effectively be an alpha figure because they don't have the ingrained skill sets has no basis in scientific reality. As a matter of fact, the only significant reasons for…"
"Just to point out, you began your dismissal of labeling with an act of labeling and casting blanket assumptions. I don't qualify as a liberal in many regards, but such assertions needn't enter this particular conversation."
""A man who... ...should he desire." I think there is even more going on there. A man who seems smitten over a woman can make the woman feel good about herself. So good in fact, she get's the feeling she can do better than this…"
As part of my research requirements for psychology, I've been spending many hours writing up a meta analysis (study of past compiled research) on the nice guy stereotype, and I thought this would be a good place to share it. I'll briefly summarize the validity of certain cultural stigmas as well as clarify what the science on the matter actually is. Keep in mind, what I am presenting is not opinion-based nor opinion-oriented, it is a citation and explanation of various research conducted under…See More
Here is a list of some time period themed parties I would rather go to.
Dark Ages - Everyone and everything will be covered in feces/mud, most of the food will be rotten and some guests will be infected with the Black Death as a…"

"What makes a man, Mr. Lebowski?
'I don't know... sir.'
'Is it being prepared to do the right thing? No matter what the cost. Isn't that what makes a man?
'er... sure. That and a pair of testicles."
"If only political matters were unimportant enough to be ignored, and we could just go about our lives without the actions of the politicians impacting us in any real way. But, that is a pipe dream. What politicians and leaders do matters…"
The definition of universe of course is open to your interpretation; could be your god, the physical universe, or maybe just your immediate environment/sphere of influence. I'm 27 and nearly 2 years into my career. I'm not happy. In fact I think I'm starting to loose my mind. A windlowless basement, unreliable car, no friends, no relatives around, and no woman isn't helping. I'm in no less financial debt than I was before I took this job. I'm no healthier. I've been called dumb too many times…See More
Any opinions on whether a man should just not give a seconds thought about todays politics?In my opinion, politics are for the privileged, educated people. My mother and father don't have the luxury of politics. And neither do I. When I wake up and come home from work I'm trying to make myself better. That last thing on my mind is poll numbers.Instead of people taking hard-lines on politics can't they just step back and work hard and be good honest people with integrity?An example would be my…See More
"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More
