rapey locker-room talk?

Though we tend to stay out of politics here at Hall of The Black Dragon, I found it prudent to address the brand new go-to excuse for predatory language–in regards to women–the now trending term of Locker-Room Talk. As someone that has played, fought, and bonded with other men in sports, martial arts, and lifting weights, it really annoys me that I am being generally lumped in with douchebags that think taking a kiss, or taking a grope is cool. Let’s be honest. Men of my age (GenX) have never been the pinnacle of Beta perfection that is pushed as ideal in this modern age. We objectify women unapologetically, we are crude, and we tend to be very stubborn about changing any of that. In a high school locker-room with other males, we tend to clown one another, when we weren’t clowning, or being clowned we talked about… [Read more]

There are two frequently searched terms that I see monthly coming to this website: “why are women unfriendly at the gym?” and “how to attract guys in the gym”. Isn’t it amazing that these questions—obviously from members of the opposite sex—are asking about one of the most controversial aspects of gym membership? For every ten women that are convinced that guys only go to the gym to ogle them for being fat or sexy, there is one that wants to use her gym membership to make a love connection. On the opposite side is the serious lifter who could care less about how many women are in his gym, what they look like, and whether or not they are looking at him. The irony of it all is that the person asking “how to attract guys in gym?” is probably attracted to this “serious lifter”… [Read more]

There are generally two types of women that guys will try to ignore: The beautiful and overly friendly girl and the seemingly “out of my league” hawt. With the first girl the thinking can be one of “she is getting too much attention from strange guys, so I don’t want to be lumped in with them”, or “she will notice that I am the only guy not sweating her, wonder what my deal is, and go out of her way to get me talking”. Normally when it comes to beautiful women, the reason why men ignore them is probably the latter. This line of thinking can be easily snuffed out by a master she-wolf and is sometimes played to her advantage when she pours all of her attention unto Mr. “I’m pretending not to see you” and melts his firewall. Smart women that are somewhat… [Read more]

There is an enormous difference between defending a woman and white knighting. When a person (male or female) is being bullied, or taken advantage of a good guy will speak up or step up to defend them in one way or another – this is not white knighting. When a woman is online arguing against or about men in any form, the male who champions her cause (no matter how flawed it is), has no romantic connection to her, and is doing so to appear different from other males, that man is a white knight. White knights are seen as “male feminists” most times but this is not entirely fair to male feminists. Feminist rules change based on who you talk to and some self-identified male feminists are not out to cut our balls off in lieu of defending some angry chick spazzing out on… [Read more]

I am asking this question of myself and others like me really – I, like so many others who frequent the gym find It to be a bastion of annoying, unlikable people, standing in the way of the workout. The funny thing is that most people think this way… so in essence the gym is a crazy hell that we subject ourselves to daily. The ultimate gym for the workout enthusiast is an empty, private place, frequented only by those you know, and those who are “serious”. By now you probably think I’m an asshole if you aren’t one of the people in this fellowship. It is why lifters aim at going in at 6am or 10pm when the “Regulars” are in bed. It depends on the gym Back when I was at a former small gym my attitude was very different towards members. People… [Read more]

doug and carrie

Compared to men of the 80’s and 90’s, the men we see in television shows, movies and even life have change drastically. There are subtle signs of this change which you probably haven’t noticed, but the alpha male is gone from television. Let me explain… Television’s Fat Stupid Hubby With A Pretty Hot Wife One of my favorite shows of all time is King of Queens, I think Carrie is the ultimate alpha femme – she’s beautiful, a bit bossy, knows what she wants, and can kick any chick’s ass who crosses her (I do love me some Carrie). Doug? Well he’s a lovable teddy bear; he’s a big guy but he’s all soft edges and heart. Doug is a great guy who many women would kill to have but he became the king–no pun intended–of the stereotypical Beta Male that television loves. The list… [Read more]

Competitive girls gaming

The point of this article is not to defend women per se but to plead to those who game in public, to stand up for yourselves whenever a douchebag gets brazen enough to cross the line. Too often have I seen situations like the cross assault debacle go down, where the victim smiles and takes it on the chin instead of going ape on the offender. I’ve never seen a fight break out in the arcade over a game, and I have been gaming heavily since I was about 8yrs old… up until the arcade scene died with the creation of next-gen graphical beasts like the Sega Dreamcast. The reason why I bring up the arcade is because it was as public as you will ever get and I never saw a man calling a woman the things I hear on games now that we… [Read more]

The following is a list of 20 types of drunks that can easily ruin a party; read and see if you can spot one that you remember.  Drunken People who vomit uncontrollably, missing the toilet, leaving their nasty vomit smell in the bathroom.
