OneY

I made a sub-reddit on Reddit.com called OneY (short for "One Y Chromosome") that, after merely a day, has more than a thousand users. I designed it to be a place where men of all kinds could talk about being men and what it means to be a man today.

I wasn't sure if it would take off or if people would even be interested in talking about such things (there's a popular perception that Reddit is already a boy's club), but more than 1000 people have decided to join, so I guess I did something right. So far, the community has been really excited about the direction it's going in, and I'm excited about it too.

Hopefully it will become a forum for honest and open discussion about manhood and the male experience.
