The Devil Doesn't Just Wear Prada!

You're joking, right? My reaction this morning reading an email from a close friend. She indicated it shook her up so bad as she sipped her morning cup of java that she, "spit coffee through her nose ... "

Here's the link:

I can't say I blame her ... 'cause I nearly swallowed my tongue. At the risk of sounding weird, I don't think there's anything prettier than a young girl's figure in a decent bikini (not the thong thing) but a nice looking bikini.

Okay, agreed. Not everyone has my taste, and if a woman CHOOSES to wear this - then fine. She has a right to wear whatever makes her feel good about herself. But don't force her to wear it! Don't say she's going to hell if she doesn't! And you and I both know ... there's plenty of fundamentalists out there and that's exactly what they're saying!

But can you imagine lying out in 90-degree heat at the beach in one of these things? How pretty do you think her face will be then? And what great tan lines, huh? I wonder what conservative old fart dreamed up this bondage? While we're at it, let's just take away her right to vote!

Gag me. I wouldn't put one of those 70s-looking gym suites on anybody! And how dare they drag God into their sick ideas of style? "Emphasis on the face instead of the body?" Yeah, right. Can you imagine the stares, the gawking, the laughs these poor girls will endure wearing this? Talk about drawing attention!

Why is it, here we are in 2006 and continue to put up with men and a few women, (mostly from the holier-than-thou religious sects) desperate to squash the human rights of women?

Why do some zealots continue to oppress women because we have breasts and love our sexuality? We're not all hookers or call girls ... LISTEN UP, Bible thumpers! The vast majority of women in America are beautiful and hold dear the freedom to buy pretty clothes and make herself attractive. Every woman needs to feel admiration from those who love her, at least once in her life.

Otherwise, why not just walk around with black and blue sheets on our heads like the women bound by demonic men in the Middle East ... men who claim women are like children or worse ... cattle. Men who believe women were created for breeding purposes and their own pleasures.

Ever read the atrocities of these people? Can you imagine living like that? Not being able to read, speak your mind, go anywhere; look a man in the eye?

Thank you God, you allowed me to be born in the good 'ole U.S.A. AND during a time I don't have to fear the hand of any man. Politically or spiritually!

Still, women continue to battle backward ideas and notions. From the board rooms to the bed rooms. And from groups who'd rather see women look like some Mormons or Mennonites ... styles and ideas and lifestyles ... in my humble opinion ... that are but a thin line away from those in Afghanistan and other third world countries forcing women to obey sadistic laws and bear burdens animals shouldn't bear.

As for me, I like this old barn of mine PAINTED.


Blessings to you and yours.
