The Photo Every Man Fears

This was quite an interesting picture to put in the National Museum of Women in the Arts. 


That is one mighty large scissors that lady is holding.  


Uh, she looks a little commando-ish with the jump suit, cap, and sunglasses. 


Is she ready for war or for punishing some bad men?  


I don’t believe there is a man out there that isn’t spooked by this lady.  


My *** hurts just looking at this. 😉

Sexual Acting Out

There is now a seemingly endless slate of sexual harassment allegations against some of the biggest shots from Hollywood to Washington, D.C. 


From the longest-serving Congressmen to the biggest star of morning television news, it seems that no one is sacrosanct.


Is it just that “absolute power corrupts absolutely”?


Or maybe it’s more broadly to be stated, as the Rabbi noted on Shabbat, that: 

“G-d created man perfectly imperfect!”

Men and women are created with sexual urges to procreate, bond emotionally and physically, and enjoy each other. 


Men tend to be the stronger than women and are able to have children into old age, and perhaps, it can be said, have the bigger “urge to merge.


Sure, there are women who are normally sexually active, and also those who are perhaps hypersexual (nympomaniac, “cougars,” etc.) and who commit sexual abuse too.


In fact, it was interesting that Wikipedia actually breaks rape down into 4 gender on gender categories:


– Rape of females by males

– Rape of females by females

– Rape of males by females

– Rape of males by males


Issues with physical intimacy and sexual harassment and violence span both sexes, however, it is also clear that:

“Rape affects women disproportionately, with the majority of people convicted being men.”


In the U.S., the statistics show gross levels of sexual violence to women:


– 1 in 5 women will be raped in their lifetime (vs 1 in 71 men).


– 91% of victims of rape and sexual assault are female.


Also, particularly disturbing is the number of girls and boys targeted:


– 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused before age 18. 


What type of society have we created, where women and children are not generally safe?


It’s interesting to me in Judaism that there is a recognition of sexual impulse, and that some Hasidim actually wear a “gartel” belt when praying to physically and spiritually separate the upper half of the body with the head and heart, from the lower half with the more animal instincts.


In short, the head and heart need to control the animal part of people. 


Unfortunately, this doesn’t seem to be happening in so many cases. 


Stunned from the outpouring of sexual allegations nearly everyday now, I said to my wife: 

“What is wrong with these people? They have it all: position, power, and wealth; and yet, they throw it all away –including their integrity and reputations–for a five minute lay in the hay!”


Is the animal instinct too strong for the person to control? That just isn’t going to cut it.


As a functioning society, it’s got be completely unacceptable for people to act out sexually or otherwise violently hurt their neighbors. 


It’s time for social reform and for the animals to be controlled by the people. 😉

Wonder Woman Vs. Hezbollah

Wonder Woman.jpeg

So get how hateful they are behaving in Lebanon…


They have actually banned the movie, Wonder Woman.


Hezbollah is afraid of Wonder Woman!


Gal Gadot, an awesome Israeli actress and model, who plays Wonder Woman is too much for them to handle.


Hezbollah, the terrorist organization in Lebanon–and the proxy for Axis of Evil Iran–has 150,000 missiles aimed at The State of Israel, but is threatened by a pop movie and superhero.


If the culture of democracy, freedom, human rights and peace-loving could overcome the radical Islamists and their terrorism then Wonder Women could become a beloved hero to them too rather than a threat to put in the dustbin along with women’s rights and freedom of religion and expression. 


Wonder Woman block those bullets and missiles and teach those terrorist bad boys a lesson they’ll never forget. 😉

Fighting Domestic Abuse

Domestic Abuse.jpegNonviolence.jpeg

I came across these excellent graphics used to educate and prevent against domestic dominance and abuse.


The first wheel shows how “power and control” are used to instill fear and dominate domestic partners as well as in an overall pattern of relationships with physical and sexual violence:


– Intimidation

– Emotional Abuse

– Isolation

– Minimizing, Denying, and Blaming

– Using Children

– Male Privilege

– Economic Abuse

– Coercion and Threats


In contrast, the second wheel displays positive patterns of “equality” in relationships and nonviolence and are marked by the following attributes:


– Non-threatening behavior

– Respect

– Trust and Support

– Honesty and Accountability

– Responsible Parenting

– Shared Responsibility

– Economic Partnership

– Negotiation and Fairness


Have you ever noticed a pattern of domestic abuse behaviors that include the following?


– Constantly lecturing on political views the other person should hold.

– Keeping them away from their family and friends.

– Controlling the major life decisions.

– Hiding money and accounts.

– Demanding the partner stay home with the kids indefinitely.

– Using emotional withdrawal and/or passive aggressiveness to control.

– Requiring the other person to be available whenever they want.


Spouses and partners should be your best friend and not your servant or dog to kick when you get home.


Watch out for those who exhibit the bad behaviors and patterns of abuse and violence…and stay safe in good and healthy relationships! 😉

Bad Boyz

Sword.jpeg

Bad boyz, bad boyz what you gonna do?


When the bad boyz come to hurt the girls.


The bad boyz better watch out. 


Feminism is alive and well. 


Women are individuals full of rights and fights. 


No one will take away what is theirs by G-d given creation of their soul and body. 


Whoever tries to is destined to the dustbins of history. 


Bad boyz, bad boyz…better recognize that women are people too.


And they are smart, resourceful, powerful, and good. 


Sugar and spice and everything naughty and nice. 


911, 911, 911…take this bad boyz away.  😉

People Nutrition

Nutrition.jpeg

This is an risque t-shirt this lady is wearing.


It’s a big nutrition label. 


And she’s wrapped in it!


I’m not sure if this is a gag or fashion statement or even a sexual thing.


Is she advertising that she’s like the food?


What was really funny though is by her butt…it says 


“Moschino chocolate tastes good.”


Maybe that should be a black box warning!


Uh, this is way too much information for me. 😉

I Love A Strong Woman, But…

Sickle Knife.jpeg

Ok, admit it or not.


This is certainly something that every man fears: ~Castration Phobia~


Of course, I don’t know what she’s planning, but with that huge sickle-shaped knife and that big disarming smile, I definitely don’t want to find out. 😉
