I think the time is ripe for an open and honest discussion about the state of men in the civilized world. This thread is open to men and women, and posts will be carefully scrutinized to ensure they conform to TB rules - no politics or mention of laws whether you perceive them to be fair or unfair. The term "The Manosphere" was promoted in a book of the same name by Ian Ironwood. The work collected ideas that have been floating around since the first days of the BBS. I included a poll to cover some of the major descriptions that have been associated with this environment. Keep it respectful and thoughtful. Of course, women are welcome and encouraged to participate in a topic in which most have more than a passing interest. Any posts remotely political will be addressed appropriately under the aforementioned TB rules.
