Quote
"It is difficult to associate these horrors with the proud civilizations that created them: Sparta, Rome, The Knights of Europe, the Samurai...

- Han, Enter the Dragon

“The cynicism that regards hero worship as comical is always shadowed by a sense of physical inferiority.”

- Yukio Mishima, Sun and Steel

http://www.the-spearhead.com/



There may be some crossover with interests of some of the posters here, though I doubt it will appeal to everyone. It tends to be both anti-feminist and focuses often on "game," which is, as far as I can gather, what one poster called "successful masculinity."

"It doesn't have to be so heavy. Just two folks having orgasms. The only baggage that comes with it is baggage you already carry. And of course watch out for AIDS and babies, but you know that."
