The 70s

Started this discussion. Last reply by John Schaefer Oct 18, 2010. 15 Replies

Maybe I'm a bit nostalgic because I was only a little boy then, but it seems to me that the 70s were a time when manhood was a true societal virtue and it didn't seem so challenged by hyper-feminism,…Continue

No time to grieve.Soon after, I returned to cold, unfeeling, drab New York where 80 percent of the people don't care about your problems, and the other 20 percent are glad you have them.But with…See More

M. Gray replied to John Bravo's discussion I held out sex for love first....Why is it so hard to find a girl who's done the same?
"Dude, just seeing your reply. Don't get your shorts in a knot, man.I do realize that women are sexual beings just like us. I never said that women don't like sex  -- but it is true that there are women out there who do not enjoy sex…"

M. Gray replied to John Bravo's discussion I held out sex for love first....Why is it so hard to find a girl who's done the same?
"Well bro, this is a tough one if you ask me. You're looking to find someone who has basically kept sexual activity under the loving relationship umbrella and avoided promiscuity. Now, I see that a lot of guys here are bashing you, but I…"

M. Gray replied to Cecil's discussion AoM is "Is Poisoning The Concept Of Masculinity"

Sir replied to Mongoose's discussion Methinks "Manly" is a Misnomer?
"I am not sure they exist, but if they do: are they right? These definitions say they aren't. If people think it's honorable to lie, cheat, and steal, this doesn't redefine "honorable," but only shows their lack of it."
