A brief
History of
The Female Form as it once was
In bold relief
writ to amuse
Not to cause
 Grief
But
Just
Relief
Once upon a time a woman’s figure
Voluptuous, yet narrow-waisted
Showed discipline and
Deference to men
Whose tastes
And needs
Required
Sacrifice
From ladies who
Expected that their lives
Would be lived to serve the desires
Of males who at that time happily ruled
The world with unquestioned authority,
But then the suffragettes appeared
To challenge and defy the sex 
Sporting mustache and beard
Phenomena no longer feared
And life became a game
A battle of the sexes
A competition ruled
By petulance and 
So up to this day 
Discord, Divorce
Discontent and
Dismay hold sway.
Which should come 
As no surprise
To tired eyes
Grown      too wise


The Feminine Mystaque


Fully liberated females today

  1. Excellent shape poem! I think that men might appreciate that shape and some of the verse more than some women, though. **wink**

    As for that first graphic, that woman would have been my mother, who always had a pit bull as a watch dog. Mom's waist wasn't that small, however. Even so, she had a voluptuous figure.

    Mom was no feminist, but she did "roar" from time to time -- in defense of hearth and home.

  2. ...and the men are more and more like women...I blame the copious amounts of estrogen in the water supply, courtesy of the birth control pill.
    Sad irony.

    Looks more like a lamp base than a woman to me.

    Keep trying. Maybe someday you'll actually make it.

    Oh, my. You bad, bad boy, Mr. FreeThinke.

    I must nod my head in agreement with Divine's sentiments. Metrosexual 'men' are proliferating, and it creeps me out.

  6. I beginning to believe that Zizek has a point in his statements that "capitalism" has had a tremendous impact upon the culture and expansion of both "feminism" and "liberalism" in general. After all, exactly who ARE the customers who are "always right"?

    Why you choose that picture of Missy Free Dan? She much worse looking than that. We have name for her in Japan. She known there as Ichibichipussi.

  9. Good HEAVENS!

    Well, I've decided that bogging is much like fishing, You cast your nets hopefully, but you never know what you might catch.

    It used to bother me that I often caught, eels, sting rays, blowfish, sand sharks and old rubber boots, instead of the hoped for sea bass or flounder, BUT I have learned to enjoy whatever comes up simply for the curious spectacle it so often presents.

    God bless, and good day!
