Boy, do I feel vindicated

My sister just made my day by sharing a news story claiming that women with "large derrieres" and "pear-shaped figures" are healthier and less prone to a variety of ailments.

Great, so even though in the NYC straight dating market we apparently pale (well, maybe pale isn't the right word since many of us are women of color, LoL) in comparison to the size O bleached blonds at least we will live longer, single. 

In any event, historically, women seem to dig my bootylicious figure, so that's a plus right there.,2933,477434,00.html

Cartoon of the day

Priceless cartoon shared by a lady friend who has a fabulous blog. This is one of those, if women ran the world scenarios that I think about for example:
If women ran the world, tampons would be free (Viagra is subsidized by insurance).
If women ran the world, sexually harassing male faculty and/or male faculty dating grad students would not get tenure. (I grant that in some rare cases this does happen.)
If women ran the world lesbians in porn would not all look like Pamela Anderson.

And so on.
