Nobody tells you when you're 28 that when you reach 38 you should be trying to prep yourself for 40.   That whole nubile body thing where you can jump up from the bed at a moments notice needs to be reinforced when you're 37 so when you reach 38 its not a surprise to your older less mobile...

Although we may not always admit it, most of us experience it in one way or another.  What I am referring to is the feeling of embarrassment, or even shame, while watching a  loved one in public: it could be a family member (especially parents), a partner or even a close friend. In...

Apparently short hair is not sexy. Victoria's Secret, who I guess are the protectors of sexy these days, aired an ad in which one of the models had chin length hair.  She was obviously a beautiful woman, half dressed and by all other standards would be deemed sexy, but her hair was to her...

The lady of the castle was a general manager of sorts. She supervised the growing of food in the castle orchard and garden, oversaw the cooking, the spinning and dying of wool and the sewing of clothes for her family and servants. M'Lady also had the responsibility for seeing that the sick were...

If you don’t believe Dylan Farrow, that’s fine.   Totally fine. If you don’t believe her--even though she is now a 28 year old young lady, and is trying to tell you of her own accord, that her stepfather, Woody Allen, molested her at age 7—that’s completely up to you. If you choose to...

My wife and I shared the reading of a blog today, by a woman, advising women what men want in a woman.  It's not a new subject and offered us no revelations.  What became most revealing were the comments.  Especially the men's comments. According to these men, men don't want strong,...

I go to a day spa type of place for my…maintenance. Let's call it that because Maggie is always telling me, "Keep it rated G, Mom.  Let's keep it G." Anyway, a girl needs things done, so I go.  The other day I noticed there's a Menu of Services, so while I was waiting I had a looksy....

Why can't they just leave women's body hair alone? From Cameron Diaz to American Apparel, they are being intrusive.  To think that the Hollywood star has discovered feminism via down under is a bit much. She is selling her book, and just like propping up the smooth skin is a big ticket there is a...

So I'm still on a woman kick. Yep, women. Or as Crow from MST3K once said "Women, women, women, women, women, women, women..."  Why, you might ask? Besides the fact that I am a woman? Well, here's the deal. Women have been scapegoats lately. Silly girls are being blamed for everything. So let'...

"Out with stereotypes, feminism proclaims. But stereotypes are the west's stunning sexual personae, the vehicles of art's assault against nature. The moment there is imagination, there is myth." — Camille Paglia "Do not put garbage in our mind." This graffiti on the wall outside Tunis City Hall...
