This bit of defamation showed up today on an email list to which I subscribe. As must be clear to readers by now, this is par for the course on the Web.
“GEOGRAPHY OF WOMEN
Between 18 and 22, a woman is like Africa, half discovered, half wild,naturally beautiful with fertile soil.
Between 23 and 33, a woman is like Canada, well developed and open to trade, especially for someone with cash.
Between 33 and 43, a woman is like India; very hot, relaxed, and convinced of her own beauty.
Between 43 and 50, a woman is like France, gently aging but still warm and a desirable place to visit.
Between 51 and 59, a woman is like Great Britain, with a glorious and all-conquering past.
Between 60 and 65, a woman is like Yugoslavia, lost the war and haunted by past mistakes.
Between 66 and 70, a woman is like Russia, very wide and borders are now unpatrolled.
After 70, she becomes Tibet. A mysterious past and the wisdom of the ages.... only those with an adventurous spirit and a thirst for spiritual knowledge visit there.
GEOGRAPHY OF MEN
Between 1 and 80, a man is like America - ruled by a dick.”
So all women are beautiful in youth and wise in age. But men are no more than animals, operating at the instinctual level.
Imagine this one with “whites” and “blacks” replacing “women” and “men.” It’s not hard, really, because most of the prejudices against men today are the same prejudices used against blacks fifty years ago.
