USC Men Wanting Quality Pie

USC Frat Boy Launches ‘Gullet Report’ for Expert Cocksmen Getting Quality Pie AOC Sensual Rebel 3/9/2011

There are days when smart women just shouldn’t get up in the morning. I’m waiting for Phyllis Schlafly’s new diatribe against American feminists to hit Amazon on March 15. Schlafly’s view of women like me is:

I submit to you that the feminist movement is the most dangerous, destructive force in our society today. […] My analysis is that the gays are about 5% of the attack on marriage in this country, and the feminists are about 95%. […] I’m talking about drugs, sex, illegitimacy, drop outs, poor grades, run away, suicide, you name it, every social ill comes out of the fatherless home. ~Phyllis Schlafly

After all, we ladies should just suck it in and understand that boys will be boys. Schlafly refuses to hold men responsible for any ills in American society. In fact, smart women have totally emasculated men in her playbook.

A degrading email — allegedly from a Kappa Sigma frat boy at USC — supports my argument that American men aren’t dead doormats yet.  What’s tough for a woman like myself is that as an ardent feminist, I never fought against men, even though I am blamed for it. Anne

The December 2011 issue of Fast Company has a lot to say about girls. We share Louis C.K. writing: The Next Steve Jobs Will Be A Chick.

Overall, I think it’s a good time to have a girl in the 21st century because things are changing, with more opportunities for women. But girls are still the underdog, which means they’ll work harder, and everybody loves an underdog. The next Steve Jobs will totally be a chick, because girls are No. 2—and No. 2 always wins in America. Apple was a No. 2 company for years, and Apple embodies a lot of what have been defined as feminine traits: an emphasis on intuitive design, intellect, a strong sense of creativity, and that striving to always make the greatest version of something. Traditionally, men are more like Microsoft, where they’ll just make a fake version of what that chick made, then beat the shit out of her and try to intimidate everybody into using their product.

Mario Philippona’s Female Form Furniture AOC Sensual Rebel 3/20/2010

Seeing is believing. Men are not “cads” in the fact that they are more interested in and responsive to visual sexually arousing stimuli than are women. They can’t help themselves. Men are captive to visual imagery … not merely below the waist … but in  the core of their brain being.

Makeup Defines Woman's Perceived Character | Women Faking Orgasms | Kanye West Debuts in Paris 

Judging Women & Makeup

Women’s Competency & Trustworthiness Tied to Makeup Choices AOC Private Studio

Are women perceived as being more competent, attractive, likable and even trustworthy, if we wear makeup? At least in America, the answer appears to be ‘yes’.

A collective group of researchers at Procter & Gamble, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston University and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute showed study participants photos of 25 women, aged 25-50. either wearing no makeup or wearing one of three contrasting cosmetic looks — natural, professional or glamorous… .

When the study participants had time to review the images more carefully, dramatic makeup was no longer as positive. People saw the dramatic makeup women as equally likeable and much more attractive and competent. In an interesting twist, the dramatic makeup women were perceived as less trustworthy.

Natural makeup women were perceived to be the most trustworthy.

Women Faking Orgasms

Male Ego, Women Faking Orgasms & Sensual Chaos in Our Bedrooms Anne’s Sensually Yours

Ali’s passionate defense of female sexual pleasure and the daily sensual dynamic between couples is the second — count them TWO — vigorous articulations of the female perspective and our competency in 24 hours. I must be dreaming because both men left me speechless with their words.

The earlier defense of female competency in investing and managing financial markets — coupled with tough talk about the male ego in Wall Street — came last night on Charlie Rose’s Bloomberg broadcast with ex-Solomon ‘Liar’s Poker writer Michael Lewis , interviewed about his new book ‘Boomerang: Travels in the New Third World.’

Egg Collective designer Hillary Petrie has lived in this charming New Orleans apartment with her roommate, architect John Kleinschmidt, for nearly four years. Design Sponge has lots of pictures of the apartment in an editorial meaningfully titled ‘What I Love Most About My Home Is the Light’.

The images reinforce the fact that when you have great architectural details and amazing light, minimalism is often the best design approach. Silly us worrying about where the technology cords go in that lovely ‘think tank room’.
