Men's health and welfare forum?

Wondering if there's scope for a new sub-heading under the "People" section where we can discuss health and welfare related topics specifically for us men. Themes could range from male specific conditions (prostate!) through anxiety and mental health into the realms of diversity, discrimination, equ...

Goodbye Grizzly Adams

Not quite as "big" as other recent passings, but a giant of my younger years!

The big C got him, too.

Re: Skirt wearing in 2015

I used to wear skirts openly. Not any more though. And rarely in private now either. Why? Social exclusion, prejudice, abuse. From whom? "Friends", "family" and eventually "the establishment". Net result. Not something I'll ever discuss here, or anywhere else for that matter, either in the public do...

Re: Medical Humor

but not simply to bolster somebody else's bottom line. Pun intended? Of course. How could I resist? I'd originally used the term "puff" but figured that'd be just a wee bit too obvious. I thought so, but on another site there's been a bit of a different procedure recently; a Sense of Humour Bypass....

Re: Je suis Charlie

Unfortunately, I don't think there is a simple answer. We none receive balanced news from mainstream news casts; manipulation, misdirection and supression abounds. Most caters for those unwilling or unable to seek more and leads to polarisation and division of societies from community, through natio...

Re: Any Freestylers in San Francisco?

Hi Antonetti Thank you for such a comprehensive and erudite response. I am sure that there will be many here who appreciate your input, insight and experience. I agree that our goal should be to make men in skirts or free-style, if not actually mainstream, then more widely seen. I'm not going to say...

Re: Any Freestylers in San Francisco?

I don't interact and post much here anymore, so am maybe not the best to make this comment, but make this observation: Your first two posts were made in Nov 2011 asking to meet up with people who do not know you and are, frankly, unusual. Being on the "fringe" of society where prejudices (whether re...

Re: Do folks notice or not?

I've been out and about a bit these last few days and the most remarkable thing about my outings is the lack of response to my skirts. Above knee length in all cases. I honestly think that NOBODY noticed the skirt. I called in at a bank and had to wait in a queue to pay in some cheques and again no...

Re: Sightings "in the wild"

I was at a hospital appointment in Chelmsford, Essex, England about eighteen months ago. There was a man waiting in the waiting area were I was. He was sat down reading his book. He had glasses on and a beard. I thought he was wearing shorts at first, then he and I got our number called at the same...

I used to be a member here but lost touch. Can't remember my old details so have just set myself up again.

Had been open out and about for several years until changes to circumstances. More about that later, but hi to all you guys both new and old.
