Fraternity Guidelines

This is a guy's only forum. No girls allowed. Male bonding time.

In here we can leave the seat up, drink from the carton and talk about manly things without fear of the ladies butting in. You know how they can be.

But remember, always play by the rules: here

    Being yourself works great for most males. Obviously there are no other options beyond faking it and being yourself. Like, say, self-improvement.
    "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:12

    There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

      Being perfect myself I failed to consider self improvement.
      Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

        I can't wait to look in the mirror.
        The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

          That's nuthin' -- on a good day I can give you ten answers just by myself!

          Of course no one thinks of me as an expert. Well, other than the voices in my head... They're convinced I'm the greatest! ['cept for the guy I ignore, I think he hates me.]
          No Silicon Heaven? Preposterous! Where would all the calculators go?

            If you gotta try to look manly you have already failed.

                I'll happily take your opinion, backed up by prejudice and anecdote, over that of someone with doctorate in psychology and studies by numerous other psychologists to back up his assertions.

                Need I point out the pitfalls involved in deriving conclusions from self-reports?

                  If the evidence provided by the author of the post holds no more (social) scientific authority than that of the anecdotal evidence of his critics, his explanation of the information is nonetheless more coherent and compelling.
                  Don't call it a comeback. It's a riposte.

                    • Psychology

                    • Psychiatry

                    • Sociology

                    • Economics

                    • Political Science
                    I would amend that to say more art than science. Success seems to depend on the individual.

                      I would be more persuaded if the author could provide reliable evidence: ie observations of what types of men women gravitate towards for various purposes.
