Why We Don’t Want Men to Vote
- Because man’s place is in the army.
- Because no really manly man wants to settle any question otherwise than by fighting about it.
- Because if men should adopt peaceable methods women will no longer look up to them.
- Because men will lose their charm if they step out of their natural sphere and interest themselves in other matters than feats of arms, uniforms, and drums.
- Because men are too emotional to vote. Their conduct at baseball games and political conventions shows this, while their innate tendency to appeal to force renders them unfit for government.
In 1915 the writer Alice Duer Miller penned this response to a growing anti-suffrage movement which argued that women didn’t really want the vote anyway. She also wrote a regular column on women’s rights in the New York Tribune titled “Are Women People?”.
Nobody does side part like Meryl
I love Meryl Streep. She is one of the most dynamic actresses in the history of cinema, she is extraordinarily beautiful and this lady rocks a side part like no other.
“Hello, pleased to meet you.” (curtsy)

“Seriously?” (for the love of…)
“No, it can’t be” (slap!)
“Hi…” (can someone take that light out of my face? thanks)
Attack of the ankle floufs
Remember how a flash of ankle was once the equivalent of today’s tramp stamp? How times have changed. Now the ankle has unabashedly ascended to center stage in the fashion arena and it demands your attention! I mean, really, have you ever seen so much ankle-centric embellishment in one season? (Ok, you probably have, but just go with it)
An ankleside potpourri sachet in black mesh at Rick Owens (the scent? anything that can confuse and confound enough for a high heel-wearing goth designer from Los Angeles to somehow amass a cult following and show to consistent critical acclaim in Paris…possibly ether?)
More saffron threads at Sacai than you can shake a bowl of mulligatawny at
M-I-C…I see your little rodent ears at Carven
Corsages on the down low at D&G
The French are notorious for elevating scarf tying to an artform. The Italians…well the Italians also wear scarves. See Missoni.
