Bill Stevens replied to Kurt Swanson's discussion Pin-up girls? in the group Tattoos
"It's an iconic image, that I think was originally a "naughty" tongue-in-cheek assertion of masculine status in the days of military and naval hell-raising circa 1900-1960. The flash that went along with the pinup girls revolved around…"

Saxon replied to Kurt Swanson's discussion We need a profile picture... in the group Libertarian Men

Hi there Kurt. 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.
