Once in a while even sexist images can have a humorous twist.

I don't have a particular interest in men's rights activism, but I know I've seen complaints about men's accustomed, god-given privilege being called into question.

I've found make up disgusting for years, as a way looking male defined, being inauthentic. But this slideshow of women with and without make up sure makes it look effective. One sample...

Thanks Joan, that is fascinating, I'd never read about that before. I'll be looking into this :)

TNT666, I am surprised I am writing this, however, I agree with you. Life is so much happier, for me, when I don't live with a man living  in the house. I love men and want them in my life but not as a house partner. Just too many things about men drive me crazy.

A tour of Ireland with a group of feminists with Padregin McGillicuddy as our guide revealed some interesting things about pre-Christian Ireland that you may enjoy reading. Reading this script of one of her radio shows makes me feel like Pady is right beside me telling me this story in person. 

The Pat' Ri-Arch Revealed: A Feminist View of St. Patrick
by Padraigin McGillicuddy


"Under the Brehon Laws, marriage was a wonderfully flexible institution. Not a hint of the sacrosanct, it was a contract only, and the laws were quite specific on who could enter into such a contract. Excluded were men who were barren, impotent, property-less, very fat (being too obese to do IT) and indiscreet men who babbled the secrets of the woman's bed. Now you know women had a hand in devising that list! Very similar to one I'd propose in the wisdom of my forty years.

"The fundamental concept was that fluctuations occurred in sexual affections (nothing novel there), but rather than make them illegal or pretend they didn't happen, it was better to legislate for them (and there's where their sensibleness outshines us).

"Therefore they compiled no less than ten different contracts for marriage for:
- unions of equal rank
- women supported by the man
- men supported by women
- a concubine or "loved one" as the Gaelic would have it
- women and men keeping company, but not living together permanently and neither wholly supporting the other
- the abducted woman (she and her child had legal rights)
- the wandering soldier and his spouse
- forced or deceitful unions
- union between the insane"

Padraigin McGillicuddy on her celtic music show on radio station KPFA in northern California in the 1980s.
