"Well John some men do and some men don't Quite a few gay men do, by the way. I've been around big time intellect and sports discussions go on all the time in the lab. Some men don't care about any of it.
"I'm not sure exactly what "normal" guys talk about at all times and places. I've been around predominately straight men most of my life, and they don't sit around pontificating much about anything. Right now I…"
"No John, I've always been curious to see how others think about cultural stuff, that's all. Actually much of what is said around the site is interesting to me, and even useful (pragmatic stuff like "how to", parenting…"
"Well if you put it like that sounds kind of forced. like a cult.
Comment about CA a bit of a joke, but if you take it that seriously you sound pretty provincial all and all.
No, i don't think i'm more enlightened, just find the all day…"
"I'm all grown up and am around people on a daily basis with world views different than my own. And the majority of people I speak to daily would probably find a site devoted to "manliness" simply comical, as do I."
"Well it might "seem " like the wee brat but appearances can be REAL misleading on the internet. On the topic of sexual preference I'd refer you to E.J. Graff. She's on faculty at Brandeis and has even more…"
hey Walter, its SpaceRacer. Im living here in REALITY, Were even the dailykos, cnn, & Washington Post say that the wage gap is a myth and that when you compare men and women working the same job, with the same experience, and same level of work, the "wage gap" is 7% or less.
Here in REALITY, the market isnt "magic" its as entirely predictable and easily studied as natural selection.
You see, the market DOES make a determination as to what women and men get paid, even when they have the same job,
like Basketball player.
Did you know that the highest paid WNBA player makes less than league minimum for her male counterpart?
Straight basketball salary, not including endorsements.
What's it called when the price/value of something goes up because of demand and the price/value does the opposite?
......of yeah, Market Response.
and Yes, I know Steinbeck was left of center,
so was Oscar Wilde and so is Chuck Palahniuk, although his work doesnt reflect it.
Saw a short video about San Luis Obispo, recently. Two men, one who lived there, and the other who had, in the past, but was back, for a visit, called it one of the greatest places on earth. They were on their way to a beach, for some surfing. One of the men owned a surf shop. The scenery was awesome!
I think clicking "leave Art of Manliness" at the bottom of the "Settings" page will delete the entire profile. If you don't want to do that ... just quit using one or the other at let it fade into obscurity.
Advice taken Jack. Got rid of all my posts in sex group on one page. Have brought it up at least a month ago with Mc Kay-hasn't responded to the fact that I have two profiles. I'll accept responsibility for the separate profiles somewhere back a couple months ago but I have never been able to get rid of one of them. If there a way to just delete one profile?
Well, many of Atticus Finch's attributes resonate deeply with me a a Southerner and as a military mam. His discipline and self-control, his defense of the outcast, his gentle manners. Atticus is the ideal example of the gentleman southern mothers raise their children to be..
I won't take the time to give my opinion of what the south has stood for, and what our values are, for you and I probably have different opinions on the subject. I will suffice it to say, there have been southern bigots who have given us a bad name, but my mother sure didn't raise me to be that kind of man.
As for Rand, I don't agree with all of her philosophy or blindly follow her, but I am a staunch libertarian and laissez faire capitalist, and I find some of her thoughts very influencial in the formation of my own opinions.
Not necessarily. Plenty of people cohabitate without sex... in fact i know several married couple who never have sex... with each other. While it may be the normal thing, it isn't necessarily required to make a marriage work.
"Not winter: Bike to work almost every day

"This conversation may be dysfunctional, but it's been one of the more interesting, stimulating ones here in a very long time.
You would never hear this level of dialogue unless you want to a specific forum for this.
No doubt this has been asked before, but since I'm new, I thought I'd toss it out anyway. I'm curious how others stay in shape, in part because I'm always looking for new things to try.I'm 53, 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds. I'd consider myself to be in decent shape. My typical workout is sort of CrossFit-esque, along with some fairly standard free-weight stuff (used to do "real" CrossFit a few years ago but stopped because of joint issues). I'd be interested in details of what others do. For…See More
"Based on the map from the OP, I've culturally and geographically got one foot in The Midlands and the other in New France (the northern one).
I'd add the caveat that the liberalism of (northern) New France differs greatly from the…"
