What image? The phallic symbols on the tower in the left background?

FreshPondIndians | December 24, 2013 at 7:37 am

I’d like to live in a world where passing gas in public after eating a huge burrito isn’t considered offensive, but guess what? Society frowns on that sort of thing. So I have to suffer through holding it in until I get to the car, just like this lady has to suffer the indignity of shaving her armpits once a week.

When she leaves School, she’ll learn that personal grooming and good hygiene will never go out of style. Until then, keep buyin’ that Patchouli child, it’ll TOTALLY mask the smell.

Wonder what adaptive advantage armpit hair provided in an evolutionary sense?

    The loss of body hair is actually an adaptive advantage, as it allows us to better regulate our body temperature (by sweating). This allows humans to run longer, which is how early humans hunted- using their significant advantage in distance running to chase and tire out animals before killing them.

    Common sense suggests that armpit hair and pubic hair serve a sanitary purpose. The mechanism (if it exists) is unknown. But what is mostly unknown is that sweating under the arms is the body’s method of cleansing the lymph system. Using antiperspirants keeps those waste contaminants inside the body and more than a few researchers think it is a contributing factor to general malaise and even breast cancer.

    So it isn’t too much of a stretch to assume that armpit hair serves a related function.

…to which I respond with this video of James Brown and Luciano Pavarotti singing It’s a Man’s World.

The only potentially offensive thing about that photo is that it can increase the likelihood of body odor that folks find nasty. It’s not “offensive” if you have poor oral hygiene that results in tooth decay, but you can bet that if your teeth are visibly rotting out of your head, people will not want to be around you either.

    Poor oral hygiene means your breath stinks. It’s a monster problem in Asia where talking to someone close up can be an adventure in self-control.

      The main reason a person’s breath stinks is due to a gum infection. Tooth decay is not primarily due to poor hygiene habits; rather it is due to mouth breathing (caused by sinus impediments) which dries out the teeth (especially at night).

      Dry teeth are a bacterium’s dream landscape. Decay and tooth loss is virtually guaranteed. If a person snores, he/she is mouth breathing and causes the same results.

      Our bodies are wonderful self-repairing creations and we should really stay in awe over that.

Well, I need masculinism because apparently some women find ugly bearded men offensive.

Limbaugh’s Undeniable Truth of Life #24: feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society.

I had to read the comments to see she was talking about her armpit hair. Apparently we “need” the feminist movement to tell us what we are offended about.

But now that I know, her insistence on prominently exposing her armpit hair to me, and demanding I find that rude pose attractive, or she’ll call me a pig … is a little offensive. But I wasn’t offended till I knew her intent was to provoke offense, and it’s not the armpit that is offensive … it’s her hairy pit in your face rudeness.

Is her feminist movement also responsible for Miley’s twerking? I don’t find that offensive either, unless maybe it was at my family Christmas party, and she was twerking old uncle Joe. ho ho ho …

I suspect that if she tried to walk across Tahrir Square in Egypt she would quickly learn a lesson about being offensive. These people are sad, really.
It’s as if they got sent to Middle Earth and decided the Big Problem was those annoying Hobbits who smoke, eat to much and are insufficiently socialist.

Go ahead, knock yourself out, girl!

Don’t shave, don’t shower, don’t brush your teeth, don’t wipe after going number two, don’t wash your clothes, don’t brush your hair … and while you’re at it, swear like a muddafuddah, get a few tattoos and body piercings, dress like a slob, forgo all manners, join BDS …

… save the world from hygienic, civilized society!

You go, Girl! Whoops, I’m sorry. I mean, you go, smelly, obnoxious animal!

Stanley Ann – is that you?

And what’s with the rainbow fingernails, anyhow?

Progressive feminism isn’t about appreciating what being a woman is all about, it’s removing the feminine (because that is now somehow bad) and making us more like men. The ideal woman is the hairy, smelly, sailor-talking barbarian that – rather than killing our meat for food like early man- kill our own unborn children and call it “liberation” and “progress”. Women’s lib makes women more fit to be in a zoo than the board room (despite the movement’s narrative to the contrary). Disgusting, really.

    Ever wonder about flashers?

    It seems that male chimps try to put the make on female chimps by showing an erection, or flashing. So for a human male to flash a human woman, he is demonstrating pre sapient behavior, or “courting like a chimp”.

    “Feminism”? Well, maybe it’s related to Neanderthal ancestory (seems all whites have a touch of it). Phys Anthro types (stones and bones) say that male and female Neanderthals have the same type of muscle attachment points and the same pattern of breaks, meaning there was no difference in what the men and the women did for a living, (thump on cave bear until tender). Sex roles had to wait for the arrival of the H sap. If this is true, then feminists are cave women yearning for the “good old days” when “dinner club” had a very different meaning than it does today.

Not offensive. Unattractive, probably smelly, but not offensive.

Her idiocy however is very offensive.

White shoes after Labor Day?

Won’t shave her pits, but paints each of her fingernails a different color?

Is it a rainbow, sweetie? Is that what you were trying to do? You’re almost cute – now shut up and get me a beer!

“I need feminism so people will stop criticizing me when I make absolutely no sense at all”

A school of fish just ditched their bicycles in the background!

heh- I bet they won’t get far.

(see where I made a pithy joke using part of the picture and some dumb feminist phrase I heard in a U2 song?)

Why is everyone offended, supposedly because of the smell of unshaven armpits.

Maybe we should campaign to have all men, particularly construction workers shave their arm pits too.

The catch phrase is sexual equality.

Is she standing in front of the Bodleian? I hear they keep it clean in there.

I don’t mind a little armpit foliage but I don’t much care for a girl with Duck Dynasty in her drawers.

What a first world problem…

wouldn’t she be a perfect match for PAJAMA BOY?
A couple match made in progressive heaven:
Armpit Girl and Pajama Boy.

And, speaking of shaving this from Bloomberg news:

Pubic lice, the crab-shaped insects that have dwelled in human groins since the beginning of history, are disappearing. Doctors say bikini waxing may be the reason.

Waning infestations of the bloodsuckers have been linked by doctors to pubic depilation, especially a technique popularized in the 1990s by a Manhattan salon run by seven Brazilian sisters. More than 80 percent of college students in the U.S. remove all or some of their pubic hair — part of a trend that’s increasing in western countries. In Australia, Sydney’s main sexual health clinic hasn’t seen a woman with pubic lice since 2008 and male cases have fallen 80 percent from about 100 a decade ago.
