Monday Meme

Next to obviously wrong political memes (yes, they are all wrong), I really hate inspirational memes...especially the ones that have a profound quote that is falsely attributed to a B list celebrity along with dramatic lighting and a thoughtful pose.  Along that line are empowerment memes for women.  As far as I can tell, this one only empowers prostitutes and opthamologists.  67,74,54,0,W

I see tattooed guys grinding without eye protection all the time.

ya.. not getting John's point... lots of gals like to do jobs that don't fit the older stereotypes... so those "memes" are really quite dated stereotypes..

these days - to each his own... do your thing...

I remember not so long ago-maybe 30 years ago when I would go in a restaurant in Texas (say Jims or Denny's in San Antonio) and sit for an hour with no service because my man had not arrived yet. So I would leave. Now they ask if I am alone and then I get service. So what were you talking about?

Oh John, now now. Just because she is in a corset and bra (plus tattoos) does not make her a prostitute. I agree she might need goggles but to call her a prostitute is a scathing insult.
I would bet you wander around in your underwear at times, are you a prostitute? No, ok then my point is made.

Kind of reminds me of the girl (said lovingly) on the History Channel's "American Pickers". Well rounded in all respects.

Larry G said...

that woman on the pickers looks to have led a hard life . run hard and put up wet...

;-)

but now , she's found her place... and happy... and wanted..

such is life...

but yes - I do not find tattoos attractive when they dominate the body - but apparent some folks do including some women.

lots more things to worry about........

American Pickers is one of the few shows that feature strong American women that have kids, actually eat, while accomplishing much.

Danielle from American Pickers

"A mother of three, Danielle is always working on a new creative project, whether it’s painting, designing clothes or selling vintage-inspired gifts online. She feels extremely proud of the “boys” and fortunate to work with such a talented pair."

By the way, the male costar Frank Fritz also has a little weight and tattoos.

Tsk tsk!! Sounds a bit misogynistic. I once read about a prostitute who wore a nun's habit. You just can't tell, John.

Do what you want to do, be who you are, just wear eye protection when you're using a grinder.
(Not referring to you, "grinder").

Well, clearly you don't get out much anymore. There are thousands of non-prostitute women with tats. This was one of your more mean spirited posts.
