Outdated Thoughts About Women’s Roles

I found this excerpt in a book for 1950’s school counselors to control the teens.
It read, “Until women acquired their present rights and freedoms, their feminine roles were well defined.”
Let’s hear it for not defining feminine roles!

    Wait a minute, no it’s the right key.

    If he changed the locks, he’s dead.

      Manipulator or How I Turned Someone Into a Lying Alcoholic

      Don’t you detest people who can’t take responsibility for their own choices?
      Okay you love to get drunk – own it.
      Getting plastered is not my cup of coffee but whatever, don’t blame other people “making” you do it.
      And definitely, don’t blame me for the bad choices you make and continue to make.

        I Would Have Liked Her Better – Acrylic on Canvas

        And so I was trapped in my seat on an airplane.
        Full flight, couldn’t get someone else to trade with me.
        One of those nice, quieter jets where the engines don’t drown out the super annoying person next to you.
        I was stuck next to this overly nervous, non-stop talking woman who did nothing but spew the most judgmental, rude crap.
        Pretty soon it became a game, look at my watch and then count how many times she said “I”.
        Over an hour of this, I had learned she thought everyone that didn’t put their hands over their hearts should be shipped out of ‘Merica and thought Fox News was the ONLY true news.
        I also learned she had some pretty extreme views on women’s rights (they didn’t need them, they had it good before and really if we loved a man enough to marry him, he could make our decisions for us as god intended) and most importantly, I learned that cable was just a way to show our people soft porno and corrupt us all!
        She was making me tired.
        Finally when she asked me what I did, I told I wrote musical scores for porn movies.
        She turned away and said nothing more. 🙂
        Best, last hour of a flight to Toledo, Ohio – EVER.

          I think everyone has potential to be amazing.
          It’s just a matter of finding the star you want to chase and making a commitment to grasping at it. 🙂

            Never Cut Her Hair Acrylic on Canvas

            I met someone ages ago either on a lay over or at a party – I can’t remember which.
            She had the bar-none most gorgeous hair I’ve ever seen.
            it was incredibly long and just beautiful.
            We were chit chatting and was telling me how envious she was of any woman with short hair.
            So I asked why and she told me she promised her father she would never cut her hair and he had passed on when she was young.
            It was the promise of a child to a dying father.
            She wanted to cut her hair badly but felt she could never break her promise.

              Sarah Always Cut Her Own Hair Acrylic on Canvas

              I once knew this girl named Sarah.
              She was the funkiest person I’d ever met in my young life.
              And she always cut her own hair. Said she’d never stop cutting her own hair and couldn’t understand why ANYONE would pay someone else to cut their hair.
              I ran into her years later – she was a dog groomer and still very funky.

                The Lonely Sheep

                Imagine a pasture with a lot of sheep, doing different things 🙂
                This sheep is alone. He doesn’t hang out with other sheep – he’s very shy.

                  The Complainer

                   


                  Don’t you hate people that complain constantly?
                  I consider baseless complaining a huge sign of laziness.
                  I mean if you’re too hot or too cold, you take off or put on more clothes appropriately, you don’t stand around whining about it, at least I hope you don’t.
                  When someone complains, I ask them what their solution is.
                  Usually they have no answer which is a huge red flag that whoever was listening to the complaining (usually ME) was also expected to fix it.

                  Tallulah Bankhead had a great quote – “Never complain, never explain…”

                  😀 This complainer has an endlessly complaining mouth.
                  Eyes that see no solution you offer.
