"Dumb Things Men Say to Successful Women"

Especially those women who are successfully married:

"What's a beautiful woman like you as you doing in a place like this?

"Well, this is a hospital"

"Yeah..."

"Uh, I'm in labor for my first child."

"Are you fully dilated?"

"Uggh. Almost"

"So meeting me for a cocktail later this evening is probably out of the question, huh?"

I once dated a blonde just so I could park in the handicapped zones at the local supermarket.

Nice article but as I got to the bottom it dawned on me that all the pictured woman were fairly attractive. It seemed almost like all the shots were "glamor" shots. It made me wonder if this was an article about men would they have needed photographs of the men?

Thus, this made me wonder if the article itself was complicit in the point the article was trying to make.

Of course, we are talking about a web article, and modern attention spans do necessitate pictures. So there's that.

They say that you're better at sex than anyone, Pegasus.

Now all you need is a partner.

This isn't anything this guy said directly to these women, he said it about them though.

Not all that long ago I trained a coupla NPF players for a few months out of the year. They played in Japan and in some other places when their season was over in the US.

There was this fat bastard who had a son who he brought to me twice a week, he wanted him to be a thrower.

One day I had a few of the ladies coming in and Tubby's son was wrapping up. I told the boy he should hang around and watch their session to see how quick, athletic, powerful, and fluid their movements were. Ole Tubby got curious.

He told me he had never heard of the NPF before, I let him know that know there is a team right here in Ohio. He said something about how they can't make any money. I told him they certainly do make money and that most of them either coach at a college or play in other countries when the season is over.

Then this morbidly obese pile of **** says:

"That sounds like a job that maybe a young mom could have while her kids are still little. Something for her to do to make a little bit of money for her family in the summer time while the kids are out of school and she doesn't have so much to do.."

They are so extremely primitive.

Maybe they will evolve into men eventually. But right now ... extremely primitive.

Any human in the corporate world for longer than a year has heard a lot of quotes that are ridiculous and/or absurd, regardless of race/gender/sexuality, etc. Yes, there are those who are just stupid and will say things they shouldn't. But I've seen girls telling guys many bad things over the years, as well, especially about looks or income. And most times in the professional world, it's just an association thing. For instance, many ignorant women get mad when they are called a ---- because they associate it with sexism because no one would talk to a man like that. Yet it happens all the time. Except for men they are called ------ and I have been called that as a boss and I have called other bosses that. Multiple times. I've heard guys call many other guys in a professional setting that word. It has nothing to do with gender, it's just that many words are associated with one or the other...and that's not sexist at all. Unless women really want to argue about the merits of using those words in gender discussions instead of just trying to get people not to use those derogatory words at all.

For me, success is hot in it's own right. Maybe more than anything else.

Years ago, I remember there was a piece on NPR regarding what each sex viewed as being attractive. Males tended to favor traditionally beautiful women, despite the clothes they wore or their surroundings, while Females preferred men who looked the part of being successful.
