    Do they issue 'women cards' as well?

    So I was thinking about this for a bit today. Is there such a thing as a "Woman card"? If so, what would qualify and disqualify one for it. And perhaps more importantly, does Ursus have one?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    It looks like this.



    Seriously, there's no such thing as a woman card. It's implied by the lack of a man card. Gender binaries, you know.

    Assuming any watching of either the "O" Network/Lifetime/Oxygen/Style networks also solidifies the woman card. These are blackholes in CPSUraf's television universe.

    Yuppers. If you're a man living by yourself, and you don't have those channels deleted from your television or cable box lineup ... turn it in, and here you go.



    If you actually watch those channels ...



    Got any radio station named "Kiss" or "Hot" programmed on your car stereo? How about something that promotes itself as "the listen at work station?"



    Go ahead. I dare you.



    Did you do it?

    ...

    A few thoughts on the "woman card":
    1. Few women I know would feel the need to carry one. We exist, therefore we are.
    2. Women have worked extremely hard to liberate ourselves from the stereotypes that historically have typified "womanhood".
    3. Most women I know are extremely comfortable with the range and diversity with which other women feel comfortable expressing their gender/sex/lifestyle.
    4. We can wear both pants and skirts, heels or sneakers, work any and every job available in the marketplace, sling pancakes and/or guns, have short or long hair, and participate in a range of behaviors that the male gender has yet to liberate itself from the confines of, and still be considered women!
    5. We have achieved these accomplishments in leaps and bounds within the last century or so, and have done it all while embracing the full range of possibilities that life has to offer all human beings who do not feel the compulsion to limit their possibilities based on their genitalia.

    6. It looks like the male gender has a lot of catching up to do

    TS said a lot of it. I just don't think women feel as judged by their peers as men do (except when young, in an upscale bar/restaurant, where all the bimbos check out the competition). Or maybe men feel they have to present a certain front so their peers won't judge them wrongly (even if their peers would never notice...).

    BTW Dan,what the hell is DSW?

    Not that one. I want Dan to tell us what he knows about women's fashion. And I really did not know what that was, even though I love shoes! (Limited knowlege about shoe stores from living in lower Alabama...)

    Big box shoe store chain. They're even in Buffalo, where so many chains normally steer clear from. Runway fashion show-type music would be played on a loop throughout the entire store. The ex used to drag me there all the time. As to not give up my man card, I stuck to the two men's aisles (as opposed to the eight women's aisles) and the clearance area, where I once found a decent pair of Merrill hiking boots for $45.

    There's only a few shoe stores that pass muster among the Brotherhood of Men. This is one of them.

    I had no clue what DSW was, either.

    This may be somewhat off-topic, but I hate the implication that women love to buy shoes and/or love to shop in general. Does this mean I lose my "woman card" if I don't?!

    Women can do whatever they want, whenever they want. They don't have to follow rules or expectations.

    I love this and hate this at the same time.

    Acknowledging and accepting this will probably make you lose points on the man card front, but I think most of us girls will think it's awesome!

    I love DSW! Any kind of shoe from a strappy black heel to a pair of retro-looking saucony running shoes is available and everything in between. I really can't say it better than TS, but from my growing up post women's lib perspective, I think women have done a better job than men in not stereotyping themselves and are more accepting of one another.

    What the hell, I'll just say it....

    Women are better than men.

    Take my card if you want. I really don't care.

    Dandy,

    I just spewed coffee over my keyboard laughing at that fix. I was definitely not expecting that.

    Thanks, my day just got better
