As we want to attract, retain and entertain all our Gentlemen friends here, I really want some ideas about what you need/want/wish for in this area.

While I realize that all the General discussions are open to all, we have some sections for the Ladies and want to offer the same courtesy to the Gents.

So let's have it.

Battle of the Pin Ups

The Barbecue Pit

Where'd you get that hat?

The Barbershop (they also need to discuss haircuts, dressings, MANicures, etc)

Lincoln Logs (or: I Built it Myself!)

I used to work at an art museum, which was in a complex with a natural history museum and library. There was this creepy curator in Nat. History who used to hit on girls with "Want to see my fossils"? SERIOUSLY. He was the sort who gave you the feeling that he might be a serial killer on the side. My boss went out with him for awhile. ICK.

My husband suggests we call it "The Rat Pack" and make it male-exclusive. I think that's a good idea.

Hi all!

I've got some topic ideas, but didn't know where they belonged....example is I stumbled across this wonderful site:

http://www.vintageprojects.com/site-map.html

But I wasn't sure it was appropriate for the section.

Any ideas?

They're the guys who take modern equipment and trick it out so it looks like something made by Jules Verne. Lots of brass and wood. Very pretty.

"The Rat Pack" = great, but do you mean lock the section/topics/threads/whatever to us girls? That doesn't seem fair. What if we gals have something to contribute? Plus, the chaps can throw their two cents in on the other topics, so...

And even The Actual Rat Pack hung out with some pretty swell dames as honorary members.

I'm okay with the guys having their own exclusive section as long as a trusted guy like Librarian is moderating to make sure there's no scary stuff.

No need to exclude the womenfolk. I like them visiting just fine. I do think it would be nice when visiting the menfolk area to remember swingers, with a cocktail in one hand, a cigarette in the other...and free-form jazz on the reel-to-reel, might not meet the modern standard of "politically correct". As long as all you swinging dolls are good with that, you're welcome in my book. Very Happy

In other words, if you ARE asked to come look at some etchings, a polite no thank you would be fine. I know what to do when told no...call Butterfield 8. affraid

I'd say that you won't have to worry about the "modern" standards of PC around here. It just doesn't fly, for the most part.

While we do believe that the Past was just better, obviously there are some things better left there...like racism and homophobia, that type of garbage. That's about the only thing not tolerated--intolerance.

apart from that, offend at will!
