The Unicorn

Posted on January 13, 2010 at 12:30pm 5 Comments



Today's Unicorn



For most people, when someone mentions a unicorn, images of rainbows and big eyed, one-horned ponies come to mind. I'm not sure exactly when this started but it probably resulted from the peace and love craze of the 60's along with marketing strategies targeting little girls with cute art. Go figure, you put hippies and capitalists together and they butcher a powerful creature's manliness. Today you won't find… Continue

Ode to a great man...

Posted on January 9, 2010 at 3:24pm 2 Comments

Everyone has a man in their life that they hold with reverence. Mine happens to be my grandfather. I would write of my father but he's still live and well so I'll hold out on writing a dedication to him.



My grandfather, Harry was an outstanding man and a mountain of manliness. He held himself to personally study current scientific theories and discoveries, kept an exquisite rock collection, read through books on various birds, and tending his own yard and garden with finesse. When I… Continue

Becoming a man

Posted on January 7, 2010 at 12:00pm 1 Comment

I am now 23 years old and until I stumbled upon this site I never really sat down to think about what being a man is really about. Not that I wasn't a man, I have lived my live with conviction and virtue and often felt incompatible with the depraved culture around me. I've always idealized the past, the books I read gave me a yearning for a world with purity, chivalry, and danger. I wanted a world polarized, good versus evil, where discipline was valued but instead I lived in a world of gray… Continue

Hi there Eric. Welcome to AoM. Also, thought I'd give you a friendly invite to check out my new group The Great Debate. Just click on "Groups." It's the one with the colorful galaxy picture. It's also one of the most active groups on AoM. In any case, great to have you aboard.

Endless Forms Most Beautiful

“Thus, from the war of nature, from famine and death, the most exalted object which we are capable of conceiving, namely, the production of the higher animals, directly follows. There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being,…See More

Jack Bauer replied to Ameretta's discussion Should I kill Myself Because I am a black woman?
"Ideally not. Best I can tell, your complaint is that men -- particularly Asian or Korean men -- aren't into dark-skinned women. You say your parents immigrated to the U.S., so it doesn't sound like you live in Asia. You call yourself a…"

Apollyon replied to Ameretta's discussion Should I kill Myself Because I am a black woman?
"Nope. 1. You seem to have self-loathing, low self esteem, and bad self image. 2. You live in Korea? Asian countries can be tough to deal with if you are not Asian. However, I can tell you many other countries in the world DO in fact like black…"
