DIS-MISSed!



DIS-MISSed!, originally uploaded by The Single Rider.


I’m reading a magazine called MORE which I do not remember ordering. The magazine is aimed toward "cougar-aged" women. Yes, it is age-appropriate for me, which could explain why I do not remember ordering it. ha haha ;o)

Anyhow, I came across this tidbitabout Disney. Apparently, in 1938 creativity resided exclusively in the domain of men. Young ones at that! I bet this woman who was rejected by Disney was better educated than some of these guys and probably a better artist.

She might have been young but alas! What she made up for in talent she lacked in errectile tissue.

  1. I like your post and the way you made your point.

    In 1938, Disney’s attitude towards women was the prevailing one. Sometimes people forget that up until the 60’s, even married women were asked to leave their jobs if they were visibly pregnant!

    To ignore all the gains that have been made since the 30’s is to do a service to all those who worked hard to change society’s attitudes towards these issues.

  2. Damn…no edit!

    …the above is supposed to say:

    “To ignore all the gains that have been made since the 30’s is to do a DIS-service to all those who worked hard to change society’s attitudes towards these issues.”

  3. Hi Mari. Yep, we’ve “come a long way” and I’ll leave out the “baby” because I think Madison Avenue decided to stick it in there as irony 😉

    Hope to be posting a lot more to this blog now that I have enabled MOBILE!
