Cartoon from Sunday paper
« on: August 22, 2016, 02:41:02 PM »
This was in the newspaper, and it's also available online. I think it would have been better (but not understood by everyone) if the last caption had been "Well, I was intending to put this up on Facebook".

I agree JohnP. That would reinforce that point of the comic. Here is a man with nudity issues in an art studio painting a "not nude" portrait of a real nude sitting 10 ft. away. Is that kinda messed up or what?

Of course if you looked at as a type of therapy, that would be a completely different comic.

I do not have a facebook account. My wife started one when our son enlisted in the Navy so we could keep in touch. The ship has a facebook account where official information was posted so we would know somewhat where they were. I do not know much about how it works.

With all the drama that swirls around that activity I have wondered, on occasion, how facebook can make such a claim to it's significance as a means of free and open communication when they openly restrict certain and arbitrary types of communication.

I've haven't figured out how you would work around that.

The symbol in the top right hand corner hit me as silly. What if we had placed that on that voyager space vehicle and sent it off instead of the anatomically correct figures? What would they think of us?

I know, it isn't the voyager thing. It is supposed to be that that is a take on Michelangelo's stuff. 'Jus' sayin'

Leonardo's stuff, actually. (And don't call him "Da Vinci").

It's a stock subject for humour.
There was a pre and post war music hall artist called Eddie Grey.  He would appear in a sketch as an artist in a long white smock and beret with easel, brushes and pallette, apparently oil painting a pretty girl who lay on a divan a few feet away.  After a few run up lines where the girl asks the price of the painting and was surprised by the expense, the girl asks, seductively, "Would it be cheaper to paint me in the nude?"
"No!" says Eddie, throwing off the smock revealing his naked body (actually in those days a body stocking) "Same Price!" as the blackout switch is pulled! 

British broad comedy at it's finest, eh what? (No)

Oh dear! No, actually. Just an innocent use of a common turn of phrase - in UK English when a joke is risqué or 'down to earth' we say it is broad.  Broad meaning young lady is only really US parlance hence you get an extra double entendre for the same price!  Gosh, I'm a multilingual punster without realising!!! :D :D :D

per The Urban Dictionary, broad is:
     Word for a woman. Less respectable than lady but much more respectable than bitch.

Not specifically a young lady.
In America, broad refers to a woman of age that is ummmm . . . how shall I say, . . experienced and enjoying the liberation.

My experience has been the use of the word has been curtailed, except to use with a New York or jersey accent and describe as a pre-women's lib sort of misogynistic kinda guys interpretation of women. It's kinda harsh. Jack Lemmon sitting in a grey flannel corporate suit in 1962 drinking a Martini in Manhattan. The construction worker sitting on scaffolding outside making cracks and whistling at passing pedestrian women in bullet bras, "Wow, check out that broad's cabezzas!"

It has been used been used like, "She is quite a broad." This is a complement of respect, but she is still being encased in the notion of just a broad.

Broads are usually strangers. The wives are not referred to by the husbands as "the broads" when they are split up, say, men at barbecue, "girls" in the kitchen.

I'm not familiar with the more narrowly defined term as Eyesup refers. This surprised me.

Not being an expert on misogynistic practices I think you are right. The term has always bothered me as it clearly sets a double standard between men and women engaged in the same activities.

You know, having a good time.  I'm not aware of a comparable term for men. I know bounder, cad and others that clearly are insulting to a man but not one for men that has the same meaning as broad.

Broad has never meant anything positive with regard to women. It was a way for men to identify certain characteristics they found useful in areas of sex appeal.

Probably there is no comproable term is because the term came out of a male dominated society...and/or maybe the women just have too much class to generalize. Another implication might be the chauvinistic attitude that is attached to it.

The term "broad" always meant that sex with wide hips for making babies.   And, that is a biological truth that anthropologists use to determine the sex of found skeletal remains.  It wasn't chauvinistic as much as it was descriptive.  However in the last few decades the feminists have made it non-PC to use any kind of descriptor for females.  Now we aren't even supposed to call them female without asking them first if they "feel like a woman" today. 

I'm not PC.  I don't do gender bending or any of that other "inoffensive" foolishness.

I've often wondered if that were the case, Bob.
Apparently I'm not the only one.
