    Oh, I don’t know. Perfume seems to get the boys to fight over you. That seems a little bit like ammunition.

    I don’t understand the description “Marty Links was a pioneer— a woman cartoonist at a time when the cartoon business was really a boy’s club” when there were women cartoonists from at least the 1700s to now, as well as writers, artists, scientists, etc. Some used nom-de-plumes (I use two of them, one for fiction, one for non-fiction), or their own names.
    There’s a tendency toward revisionist history about what roles women had by feminists. Take Fanny Crosby. She wrote over 8000 hymns. By feminist dogma, she must not have existed because women supposedly didn’t do things like get published back then. Clara Barton, the “angel of the battlefield” who started the Red Cross after the Civil War, was one of many women who organized relief during the Civil War. There have always been women like that. (Sherman said of Bickerdyke, who while a moral reprobate, still did some incredible things for the troops, “she ranks me.”)
    Josephus mentions a female physician in his writings almost 2000 years ago, and he just mentions it defacto— nothing unusual about it.
    In researching voting rights, I found that the 13 colonies originally had rights to vote for women. New Jersey had a 20 year minimum age, but anyone 20 and over could vote. Pennsylvania had the right to vote for landowners, but at 2 pennies an acre or so, not surprisingly, there was a large number of women landowners and they voted.
    Feminism will have much to answer for, just in rewriting history, at the White Throne Judgement.

    When you’re as allergic to perfume as I am, it definitely SHOULD be under ammunition.

    Marty son-in -law here. As much as I respect your individual opinion, I politely disagree.

    Marty never considered herself a “pioneer” in her professional field. She was termed that by her cartoonist colleagues and her many Emmy Lou/Bobby Sox fans. And… those same colleagues, Charles Schulz, Mort Walker, Hank Ketcham , etc voted her the 1972 cartoonist of the year not only for her comic strip Emmy Lou but also for the path she laid for other female cartoonists to follow. These men respected her and loved her and she to them as well.

    On top of that, “Emmy Lou” promoted kindness to others, respect for parents, friendship and good humor between boys, girls and parents without the violence, sex and vulgarity we see today in entertainment. She promoted nothing else.

    As my mother would say to me, " Be it not for women you wouldn’t be here". You know what? I tend to agree with her on that one!!! Have a great day!

    A typical misread of feminism which is quite old. There were a few that made it but it was always a few not like now when most of the higher education is dominated by women including the Ph D.‘s. Wasn’t so in the past.
    The point wasn’t that they were nonexistent, we know that to be untrue, but that it was rare in the first place. How could you miss that unless your ideology blinds you?

    Emmy Lou, not quite what I grew up with, but still I recall elements of it. And it is nice to encounter them again.

    Most perfume makes me gag, and it is put on too liberally. The same goes for the men’s version. I try to only use a little of it or none at all.
