Attack of the 50-foot MILF - Page 2

But we could put "quit that" on our New Year's resolution lists.
This whole subject reminds me of the time the first friend of ours to get pregnant (we are late bloomers) found herself wailing, hormonally, something like "I don't want to be attractive just to the sort of people who would want you to know that they find pregnant women attractive!" Likewise, many an older woman could find herself lamenting being attractive only to the sort of men who would want you to know that they find older women attractive. One wants to be found attractive. One does not wish to be exoticized or, God forbid, humored.
I appreciate your spin on the phrase, and am glad you had the enviable experience of being found sexy for being exactly who you are. I don't think MILF can be redeemed, though.
I recently read on one of the feminist blogs a post attempting to reframe the misogynist use of "douche" as invective ("Ew! It's for vaginas!"). "Douches are bad for your ladybits," reasoned the writer (more or less), "so it's not anti-woman to call a smarmy, self-satisfied jerk a 'douche.' It's pro-woman! Because douches are bad!"
Nice try, I thought. But calling a dude a douche is still pretty sexist. As for the fact that I also think it's hilarious, well, please don't be outraged!
Love,
Andrea
