  •  You saw the picture of gun-toting mama too? (11+ / 0-)

    I maintain the peroxide blonde needs a bunch of Glocks because she has one each in pink, blue, purple, green, red, yellow, orange, silver, gold...

    Gotta be color coordinated ya know.

    Gun, power, rape, power. Further empowered by the justice system, Madison Ave, entertainment, sports, Tiaras for Tots, religion, cars.  What did I forget? Personal teasing or ridicule for being unmanly, wimpy, low testosterone.

    It's still built into the culture. What amazes me, and I am very grateful for, are the guys who reject it. Maybe we need to find a way to lift them up.

    Empower them.

      I'm empowering one man because my husband finds this propaganda as repulsive as I do, and he knows how much I appreciate that.

    •  You're making a joke (0+ / 0-)

      But there was an ad here on Kos just yesterday that led to a website that sells "women's" gun accessories. Things like black lace and leather shooting gloves, leopard print earphones for the range, shocking pink gun carrying cases...

      It was bizarre. Apparently men who shoot want their women to dress like hookers who shoot.

      •  while shopping for a new handbag (0+ / 0-)

        last year, many had side zipper compartments that I thought were a bit odd.  Turns out these handbags were designed to accommodate your Glock, and maybe an extra clip.  

        Just a few of the product descriptions 'fessed up to the reason for the unusual side zipper pockets.  I guess the vendors assume everybody knows the purpose.  

        I teach, so I guess I am expected to carry now.
