Outdated Thoughts About Women’s Roles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!

If He Changed the Locks, He’s Dead

This is the story I imagined happened in this flash card….

Crap I’m late…okay we had a fight and I left to clear my head
.. oh crap is this the wrong key?
Wait a minute, no it’s the right key.
Hey, this looks like a new lock!~
If he changed the locks, he’s dead.

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.

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.
