The Art of Manliness
I discovered this website today, courtesy of a friend. It's full of humor, self-deprecation, instruction in lost arts and has just the right amount of prodding in the mix.
I also like the name. I've long had a sense of unease about "femininity" as a concept. Even after long discussions with girlfriends, it still rings of twinsets and pearls or gingham dresses with lace collars. I've always preferred womanliness. It seems to me to have a deeper, richer, warmer and even stronger sense to it. So here's to womanliness in response to manliness!
