Saw this, not even sure if Gwen realises the article is out there.

So funny! Myself?

Even if she had noticeable boobs, they would still be attached to a gray-haired, sixty-something woman with unwarranted confidence and brains to match, so . . . invisible. Not that she cared. She looked me up and down, and then moved on to a slightly balding man, completely missing that I am the total package. What a loser!

the article caused a sh** of a S-Storm on a group I'm part of when a guy thought he'd make an off colour retort to the article and a bunch of feminists called him on it.  but I do love the article.

     As I stepped off the airport shuttlebus, I caught sight of her -- her long brown hair lifting from her back like the delicate wing of a beautiful butterfly. She was tiny, no more than five feet, tuckable under my arm, her slim, strong legs surely able to keep pace as I'd lead the way to my favorite hiking path some sunny afternoon. I panted after her lovely hourglass shape accentuated by her form-fitting dress. God! How I wish my wife still looked like that! Pursuing that beautiful form with my roll-along trunk, I wanted to scoop her up and place her on top of it, rescue her from the din of the city and roll her into the hotel elevator to my carpeted room.

    Now within arm's length, I said in my rolling baritone voice that's made millions of women literally melt, "Miss? Excuse me. Miss?"

    As she turned, tough-skinned crow's feet puffed up above the high cheekbones that must have launched a thousand ships in her gorgeous prime. But now those chiseled bones could barely hang onto her sagging skin. What a cheat! That fraud, out and about, parading down the street with the body and walk of a teenage queen when she had to be at least sixty! How many other men had she tricked into huffing two blocks after her? There ought to be a law against bitches like her. How dare they!

Thanks, NextChapter.

Doing this post has inspired me to post a profile pic of me in my sixties. For some reason, my hair doesn't turn gray, except for a few strands along my temples, and I do tend to look like a teenager -- from a distance.

I have to say there have been fantastic male writers over the ages who have realistically portrayed woman: Flaubert, Maupassant, Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, others. The puffed-head who insisted on his web page a man could write realistically about women (only to prove with his novel that he didn't manage to), well, he reminds me of those  old  novels, where all the "dames" exist only for men to feast their eyes on and get into the sack. I don't think that guy could write well about anyone, anywhere. Unfortunately, he's not the only one out there. My sample is meant only to guess what guys like him would write -- guys who have no time to waste on women who have never been, or are no longer, lust-worthy (by his standards). Kudos to the men who pay deeper attention to the rest of humankind.

I've changed my avatar too. Thanks, Munley, for inspiring me to do so.
