So, I'm typing out the list of 100 Books Every Man Should Read into Microsoft OneNote on my phone. Some of them I've already read, but basically I'm going to read them all and as I read them, check…Continue
"Seven Daughters and Seven Sons by Barbara Cohen and Bahija Lovejoy is a great book for a young girl (or boy, but really great for a girl). This is probably where I got my first taste of a strong girl/woman character in fiction when I was younger,…"
"The path I take is to try and inspire interest in things that will help them down the line and let them naturally gravitate toward reading/movies/media material that reinforces because they want to. The problem I have with "assigning"…"
I think it's good to promote reading right away. Just getting a child to love reading in the first place is a wonderful thing. Many kids first get hooked on young adult fiction because it's written for them and they can relate to…"
"One of the reasons I'm poorly read by Brett's standards is that I read more "college-level" material when "normal" kids read the novels Brett recommends. I had the chance to re-read those works in college, and read a…"
"What reality? Of the books I've read from Brett's lists, over half I've read or re-read without the task being assigned to me, but voluntarily. That includes the Iliad in particular.
And I've actually never met a boy who loved…"
"Speaking personally - I'm not a fan of redacting historical documents just because some teenagers might be uncomfortable. Honestly, I don't even recall those sections of the book, despite reading it several times - that wasn't even on…"
"Privacy issues might be different depending on the readers' gender. There's wisdom in the TSA's gender and pat-down policies. I fault the father for not redacting the portions of the Diary that concern me. Even the old, common…"
"A desire for preservation of something is not a good indicator of its necessity.
Nor is an authoritative approach to teaching, a good indicator of either actual authority, or correctness.
But ultimately - I use this to illustrate that I think you…"
"I think I see what you mean.
A good reason not to teach children about religion either then, lest they gain a false familiarity with radical and complicated theologies. Wouldn't want them to think their thoughts for them... "
"Okay Shane I suppose I can start with light weights and go for endurance in the first weeks for gettin accustomed and building basic condition. I will just take my chance of
dysbalance and injury. There is not much i can do wrong with that approach."
You have gotten some fantastic advice so far. Almost to the point that I feel like I don't have too much to add (almost!).
WEIGHT LOSS GOAL
If you are really serious about losing weight, I recommend putting together a…"
"Not really. Sandbags fall into the odd shaped object category. Like kegs, logs, atlas stones, lawn mowers. Your dead lifting skills aren't going to be a lot of help. Continental lift and overhead press with a sandbag is nothing like a clean and…"
This is a GSRM (Gender Sexual Romantic Minorities or LGBTQ+) group. But And straight men and cis-men are encouraged to join as well.However, unlike the already established AoM group "Gay and Bisexual Men", this group is wide open, no privacy settings enabled. The overall purpose of the group is to encourage conversations between the straight and non-straight communities. This already happens in AoM, but it is scattered. And it can't happen in the private "Gay and Bisexual Men" group.Debate…See More
"Talk to a therapist.
I can pretty much check everything on your list off for myself. I started therapy but unforuntially had to stop after two sessions because of a change in insurance. I'm currently looking for someone new.
There are lots of…"
"As for your comment about bulking and having a "coat of fat" I seriously wouldn't worry about that, unless you are specifically cutting for a bodybuilding show :D
How are you trying to improve? Simply get stronger? Get a better…"
