Fairer Sex Sells?

Just came across this article dated Feb 8 in the net that Kiera Knightley and Scarlett Johansson posed nude with a fully clothed Tom Ford on the latest cover of Vanity Fair. Why is it always the girls huh? When will I get to see butt shots of Brad Pitt and Keanu Reeves on the cover of such magazines? Sigh, if they say sex sells, why should it only be sex of the fairer kind? I figure in this day of age, women have come a long way since being the usual plain domestic housewife of yesteryears. They probably had the term housewife cos the husband had another wife someplace else! ;op Now, we have a lot more power, a lot more wealth, a lot more of errr....everything! Why isn't the print media of today, meeting the needs of the new age women? It's really no longer a men's world but a fair playing field for both sides. Of course, beautiful women on covers are always welcomed but there should be more photoshots like these of the male celebrities. When I told my friend Ryan, he suggested that I should get a copy of Playgirl! Hello???? I want photoshots that are tastefully done and of well known celebs, okay?

Even family orientated rental stores like this one (not in Malaysia, no such luck you guys!) have to join in the game. What an oxymoron!

Say whatever you want, some powerful and important men's downfall (whether directly or indirectly), have been caused by women. Think Bill Clinton and Monica, Samson and Delilah, Archilles and Briseis (or was that just in "Troy" the movie?). We are definitely a lot smarter than "they" think! Whoever coined the term "weaker sex"? In CrimeLibrary.com, there is a category on its own for Women Who Kill. Why? You mean it's something unnatural? Men who kill are more acceptable? Gees.....What does that mean? Whatever that is, I just want 1) women to be taken more seriously by men or 2) Keanu's or Brad's butt shot on the cover of Vanity Fair! Ha ha ha......

When a man talks dirty to a woman, it's sexual harassment. When a woman talks dirty to a man, it's $3.95 a minute. ~ Author Unknown

It was just in Troy. Achilleus never shagged her. That movie was such a lie it wasn't real... =\ Don't even get started on Alexander.

How dare these Hollywood types mistreat the classics...

That's why we're not married, hehe...Marriage is about compromising, give-and-take??? It's always the women's side who compromise and give more!! It's just that women are "moulded" to think that they are treated equally and are supposed to "do their job" when it comes to everything related to household chores, kids, bill paying, parenting, etc....whereas men only do the occasional changing of lightbulb!
