    If father Sergio wasn’t a widower, the mother would also have a big talk.

    I’m sure it was “very disrespectful” when those bikini models cashed their paychecks.

    Maybe they felt like pieces of meat like that Victoria Secret model who cried all the way to the bank.

    Tarp short for tarpaulin as in canvas.

    Such scantily clad young women were a distraction to seeing the cars, or the cars were a distraction to looking at the lissome forms of the women.

    That’s the only part of those magazines that’s any good!

    Well, Gracie. Those girls wanted to pose in bikini, so what can you do? At least they weren’t completely nude.

    Lysistrata offers readers several examples of different types of women through dialogue and actions. One the one hand, the main character, Lysistrata, is very powerful and an excellent, moving speaker. The other women that surround Lysistrata are rather the opposite; the don’t care to engage in politics once the possibility of sex is revoked and for the most part, many of them seem to fit to fit the mold of a stereotypical woman of the time—housebound and dutiful to her husband.


    By presenting readers with a strong central female character, Aristophanes is showing both sides of women—the influential and the subservient. While Lysistrata is unquestionably the ring-leader of the political movement, there are elements of her character that are more masculine than the other females we encounter, which serves to lend this tale some degree of credibility since male (and likely female) audiences of the time would have found the plot to be completely unbelievable if the main character that affected such change was a “typical” woman. Lysistrata breaks from the traditional role of a female in many ways, but the disturbing part about this separation is that she seems almost too masculine and removed from the world of the other women she encounters.

    Fascinating reading.

    The problem is, their “honest labor” is still built around teaching half the population to regard the other half as brainless pieces of meat, instead of actual people. When a woman gets involved in cars, as a driver or engineer, that woman is continuously faced with remarks, comments and attitudes that they are on the “wrong side of things” – that their “proper” role is only as the bikini babe decorating the car, not taking over the “man’s” side of things.


    Women in the computer and high tech industries get the same kind of backlash – we should not be programmers, we should be there as booth babes for teh menz, who are the “real” people in the field.


    Yeah, booth and bikini babes get paid for “honest labor”, but that whole “honest labor” is built on toxic assumptions of who the “real” consumer of the product is (straight males) and who the “real” players in the industry are (straight males), and what the only appropriate role for women is.


    And when the only visible women in a field are the ones who don’t have anything to say and are just there to show off their tits, how do you think girls growing up regard their chances of getting in there to do anything more interesting?

    AMEN!
    Throw in re-inforcing sterotypes for boys to brush off said girls and you’re good to go.

    Besides, it’s NOT good money. Models don’t make much, unless they make it big. Go ask a “Laker’s girl” how much she makes compared to the lowest paid basketball player and then compare their time and effort spent moving on the court. I’m willing to bet a guy on the bench is nothing compared to the dancers.

    If any women make it through school in engineering, they do fine. They will land in a spot that matches their talent. There’s lots of different levels for engineers. It can get a little uncomfortable sometimes with the men who don’t like girls, but the pay and working conditions make up for it.
