To the 22PlusY Homepage, the anchor of THE site with men in mind, written by men.
Why a dedicated site?
The answer is simple, women are very good at sharing… men are not.
It took me most of my 59 years to realise that we men are not really catered for when it comes to our interests and having somewhere to look for information and ideas.
Yes, there are sites that cater for men’s interests, but they are either for specific areas, such as sports etc., technology, or for the mid-twenties to late thirties group and mostly about male grooming etc.
22PlusY aims to be different. We have content about interests, but also about health and wellbeing, as well as relationships etc. Things men want to know about. Things that many men fear that they are unique for feeling a particular way, but are, in reality, very normal.
Many men isolate themselves, or their feelings, often for deeply ingrained reasons, and very often for misguided reasons.
This is not a site for porn, not a site for foul-language, not an agony aunt, and not a site for misogyny.
All articles are open for comments and for sharing, and guest writers are always welcome… just drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to contribute.
So, the name: 22PlusY
22PlusY refers to the 23rd chromosome that distinguishes between male and female. Females have an ‘X’ and males have a ‘Y’. There’s a lot of talk about gender in the press these days, and I’m not expressing an opinion one-way or another. Suffice it to say we cannot change our chromosomes. they are literally made of our unique DNA. If someone is born with the 23rd chromosome being a ‘Y’ they will always have a ‘Y’ in that position.
