1. The holidays are upon us and after discussion among the moderators, it has been unanimously decided that we will be closing the Board on the following dates to give us the chance to enjoy the holidays with our families and so that the volunteer moderators will not have to cover for me while I am on vacation. The Board will be open to read and those who have those privileges can still send private messages and post to Profiles.

    Closing Monday, November 23 at 12:01 AM EST

    Women shouldn't allow themselves to be defined by a number.... we are infinite.

    It sounds like the guy was "trying" to give a compliment by saying that women are still desirable at older ages than they were considered to be in the past, but once again the underlying message is that we are defined by our looks and sex appeal as if that's the total package and only attributes worthy of mention.

    EXACTLY. And I'm sure he's totally clueless as to why women aren't as pleased as he expected them to be. After all, he did call us 'hot'. :hammer:

    Good afternoon.

    I had to read the article twice and look carefully to see if it was a joke or a cruddy attempt at satire.

    After doing a little research I'm going to say Mr. Junod is a washed up writer and wrote this crap to get attention.

    Oh, yeah. People, men and women, were royally PO'd.

    But he must figure better negative attention than none at all.

    42 is nothing. I feel better about myself in my 50s than ever have. I refuse to be defined by a number. Don't even think something like that is complimentary. I don't need that kind of compliment. Why is it men don't look for verification from women as they age, but there are men who think women need their verification?

    Where'd Tom Junod graduate from, the University for Schmucks in Asshatville, USA??

    I'm 49. According to Junod, I should be grateful the grocery store cashier even says "have a nice day" to me, let alone be asked out by someone. While I'm no bra-burning feminist, the notion that a "gentlemen's magazine" still objectifies women in this day and age is repugnant. I understand men are visual, but Junod missed the boat completely when he failed to cite one important aspect of 42-year-old women (or those of us who are older): we don't really care whether men think we're still hot. We know we are.
