Came to say that... birthing hips was the most important thing for a woman until about 40 years ago.

Nowadays, a woman with those measurements would be called a cow and told to lose 30 pounds.  Which is a pretty shiatty indictment on today's society.

...Aaaaaand gay as Paris in Springtime.  Seriously.  There are so damn many early-20th-century lesbian dog whistles in her quotes it makes my head spin.

Women should never be afraid, fresh air and tramping through the woods, "ardent" suffragette, no mention of marriage at all, wants to take over the farm...  If she were alive today, she'd be taking her degree in gay rights activism.

Wait a minute, are you shiatting me?  Thinking women shouldn't be afraid, enjoying fresh air and walking around in the sunshine, wanting women to get the vote, and not believing their identity revolved around a husband equals being a lesbian?  WTF?  She may well have been a lesbian and she may not have been, who knows.  I just don't think enjoying walks in the sunshine makes you more apt to want to eat pussy.  I like walks in the sunshine, and I'm strictly dickly.

No, I don't think I'd be surprised at the number of things that have changed in this world since the Titanic sank.  I was just taken aback at the suggestion that liking walks in fresh air meant you were secretly telling people you liked the ladies.  I would imagine that even in 1912, women enjoyed not sitting in a stuffy house all day if they could afford a few minutes out of it.

Then again, I was born 70 years after the period we're talking about, so what the hell do I know.

I used to get all bent out of shape about today's standards of beauty.

But I work out on a regular basis, eat healthy, and genuinely like my body. And I'm healthy. I got nothing to complain about!

I came out during a time (The Reagan Years) when we communicated with one another in these ways.  It's not that women back in 1912 didn't like walks - but the respectable form was walks in the park, not tramping through the woods.  Being "outdoorsy" was a euphemism even when I was coming out.  Suffragettes were of course mostly straight... but defining oneself as an ardent suffragette was akin to coming out, really.  No mention of marriage, while not necessarily a defining thing, was certainly unusual.

It's a combination of the dog whistles that does it for me.  I'd love to know what her life was like, whether she buckled to the pressure to marry and make babies, or was a "spinster" who lived with her "companion", or married an equally unusual man and were friends with another unusual couple with whom they spent ALOT of time...

All that is very valid.  I also think maybe it has to do with how and where she was raised.  If she was raised on a farm and had no mother, she was used to a different kind of life and upbringing than someone else during the same time period.  Maybe for her, women working on a farm, "tramping" around the outdoors, and being outdoorsy was all she knew.  I mean, Long Island back then was very rural compared to what it's like today.  Someone of the same age living in Manhattan would have no experience with those things, and thus wouldn't find working on a farm all that enjoyable.

Like I said, it's very possible she was a lesbian and was telling everyone in coded language that other lesbians would pick up on, or she was just a country girl who didn't have city girl ambitions.  I don't know.

r perhaps she was like I was before I came out - I sent off incredible gay signals without knowing it at all - I was unconventionl, I knew that, and I knew I liked girls, but I wasn;t consiously trying to raise a flag or anything.  And yet I did.

We will, of course, never know.  And it's really none of my business anyway, except that if I'd been at Cornell in 1912, I'd have been trying every means at my disposal to confirm so I could date her.

I'm not a big guy... 5'8", 155 lbs, and pretty fit. I've dated all sizes of women from under 5' tall and curvy, to 6'3" runway models, and I must say, I much prefer it if a woman weighs less than I do. Not that big girls are unattractive...I'm no hater. Things just seem to go more smoothly if they don't outweigh me.

But my deal-breaker: Big hands and feet. No matter how attractive, intelligent, funny etc, if her hands and feet are bigger than mine, I just can't do it. It gives me the willies for some reason.
