    Lightbulb On a Positive Note

    This is a thread for positive stories, quotes, observations, etc...and can be spiritual in nature, or not. Whatever you like, it just needs to be positive. There's a lot of ugliness in the world, but we shouldn't lose sight of the beauty all around us.

    I like this article, and while 40% say ''no,'' 60% still say ''yes.'' We're going in the right direction.

    Great topic, Deidre!

    Although it's an improvement, and a step toward further protection of all forms of life, the rest of the news got me depressed due to its anti-male attitude.

    A bill proposed in Oklahoma that demands giving fathers of an unborn child the legal right to their opinion by signing their approval on abortion forms.

    Now, that is positive news. I can only imagine though that feminists will want that overturned, but it's a great start. It has always amazed me how men are not even considered if they want the child or not, when it comes to abortion, but it only seems to matter what the woman wants. Takes two to make a baby, hello.

    August Løvenskiolds' main site article Do men make better CEOs than women? a classic. Really good read.

    Beards, Game of Thrones and Alaska!

    Beards: I actually think masculinity is making a comeback - sure Raymond on Everyone Loves Raymond is still getting kicked around in the reruns... but I'm seeing lots and lots of guys sporting beards lately. I like to think its a bit of cultural correction for the past decade or so of metrosexuality and manscaping.

    Game of Thrones and Vikings: Who doesn't love good ole' fashion sex and violence, apparently lots of people do!

    Alaska: Every other show on the Discovery or Learning Channel Network is about rugged men homesteading in Alaska. I like to think its tapping into people's need to sort of return to some basics and away from the technology - a primitive drive in people.

    I think the popularity of all these things is a good sign... (though I still cannot explain the man bun).

    LOVE beards. My fiance can't have one because he's a cop and has to be clean shaven. When he has a few days off in a row, it's like a tease, because he doesn't shave then. lol

    Love GoT!

    True. I think that our culture is looking towards a minimalist way of life. Alaska seems so beautiful!

    lol

    And you. You are a very positive addition to this site.
