J. D. replied to Shmueley's discussion Men & Disability
"FWIW, I have a disability as well, though admittedly, not nearly as debilitating as yours.  I lost most of my vision shortly before I turned two years old, and medical science is unable to restore any of it and likely never will.  My…"

"I don't really have anything new to add.  I just wanted to add my voice of support and encouragement. Part of manliness is doing what you can with what you have.  Your "resources" are much more limited than any would want,…"

"One would imagine that you have accumulated something of knowledge via chronology. Perchance you could proffer something of such to the sons of aforemention. Examples of perseverance would likely also to possess worth.  The actions of a father…"

Forge replied to Shmueley's discussion Men & Disability
"I think there is inherently a sign that the link to the nobility of the concept of "being a man" has not left you in that you feel the urgency of trying to continue or redefine what it means to you. Perhaps a good project would be to put…"

Milo Morris replied to Shmueley's discussion Men & Disability
"My partner had to stop working and go on disability in 2010. He is slowly losing a number of his faculties. The way he puts it, when a man is young, his body is his tool-kit. He uses it to get stuff done. When we get old, its as if the body is…"

Banya Men!

Though they aren't common in the United States, Jjimjilbangs, Banyas, Onsens, and Hamams are a great places to hang out.  This is a group for men comfortable in their own skin and appreciate the eastern ideas of public bath houses.See More
