Absolute shock stepping off of the airplane and into a Midwestern American Airport; it seems that each time I come back to America, the people get bigger and bigger.
Fast forward 3 or 4 days – I went to the mall to drop my watch off at the jewelry store for repairs and I saw this creature near the center plaza. At first I couldn’t make out its sex. Surely it is a man.
Or is it?
It has breasts, but then again, some large men do have breasts. It has tattoos & piercings, but does that define sex any more? I looked again, I studied for some time and I really couldn’t determine if it was man or woman. Very sad indeed.
I watched for a bit longer and then I heard it speak, sure enough, it was a woman.
No doubt, another victory for feminism.
You know, the Spiderman camouflage was almost effective; my eyes were pulled to the red and blue and web design and I almost didn’t see overhanging gut… yeah, right.
Where in the world has our society come to where this is acceptable for a woman to dress like this in public? Sure, we have occasional oddballs, and I suppose it is cool for some men and women to be different, but as I look around, this has become the “new normal.”
Sad state of affairs indeed.
As I’ve said in the past, American (and Canadian, Brit & Australian) men are every bit as feminist as the women. Well, perhaps the Aussie Men get some points for machismo, but politically they’re every bit as feminist as the average veggie eating-pot smoking-tree hugger in Portland.
And its not just that we (as men) are feminists, many of you have become metro-sexuals too. It was a new term for me; while I’ve been out of the country, the term metro-sexual has become en vogue and from what I’ve heard it describes a heterosexual man who tends to his appearance more than the average woman. In other words, a man that spends waaaaay too much time in the bathroom, shopping for clothes, getting his hair done, etc. Or, a guy who acts gay even though he is straight. I don’t think I know any metro-sexuals.
And then, as I passed the “What is it?” creature, I saw these young men sitting in barbers chairs.
But the lady wasn’t giving them a shave, or a hair cut, or even a massage. She was holding a piece of string in each hand and in her mouth. She formed a triangle between her mouth and hands and pulled the thread so that it made a rolling motion.
I’ve seen this in India; the women get their eyebrows plucked using string in this manner; as it pulls the hair out by the root it does not grow back as fast.
But no, these men can’t be getting their eyebrows done, can they?
And then I saw the business name:
Lovely eyebrows! Can you believe it!? I couldn’t. Actually, I still can’t believe it. What has our society come to? Men should be out mowing the lawn, drinking beer, not getting their eyebrows threaded! That this business has enough customers to stay in business should tell you something about our society.
Men, if you do this. Stop immediately. Go and drink a beer, watch some sports, and on your next holiday, get over to Ukraine!
Just a few days ago as I found my transfer flight to Moscow, I happened to be standing next to a young couple. We started chatting and I came to learn that he is from Connecticut and she is from Russia. They did the “long distance relationship” for about a year and then they both applied for residency visas. His Russian visa was issued almost immediately, her green card is still “in process” after many months. She still has a tourist visa for the US and they come back and forth to visit friends and family when they aren’t working. They both work in the cruise-line industry and have a good deal of flexibility in deciding where to make residence and for now, they keep an apartment in Moscow.
He was (to my eye) an “average looking” fellow who looked like he was from a Puerto Rican family, he had some acne scars on his face and a little bit of a beer gut. In the US, this guy is probably lucky to date a fat girl with a bad attitude. His bride? She was quite pretty, blue-green eyes, long straight brown hair, and a body from a woman who looks like she does cross-training 5 days a week. And of course, she was wearing skin-tight black stretch pants that left little to the imagination.
As we waited for luggage, I saw another woman from my flight in similar pants – equally good looking and I couldn’t help but thinking how much hotter Russian Women are than American women.
As I think about it, a few flights back I saw another gorgeous woman at the airport in Moscow, let me see if I can find her pic(s). Yes, here we are. Now, do realize, this woman is quite “average” in Moscow. Not only are the women beautiful, but they are in wonderful physical shape and they dress very elegantly:
When you first come to Russia or Ukraine, you will probably have a sore neck after the first day because your head will be on a swivel – the hot women are so numerous. I hear this from (Western) guys that I meet over here all the time. They just can’t believe how many beautiful women there are here.
Before I resized this photo for the website, I pulled crop of her face – you’ll notice that her hair and makeup are done impeccably. Now, scroll back up to the top of this post and compare with the Spiderman-she-thing. Really, there is no comparison.
