"ok lets see if that thing with glasses chicks suddenly becoming super weird feminine when they whip off their glasses works."

If you say so, Professor.

This seems to be a neck up standard of female beauty.

OK, fecund and aroused lips with a submissive pout and big eyes are attractive to the man who wants to get laid tonight. Glasses can hide that.

But glasses are actually more attractive to the man who wants to engage a woman's mind first. It's those sexy librarians who never fail to make my heart race with their knowledge in so many areas. Their neck down becomes an extra treat.

Super weird feminine for women who didn't start out feminine at all maybe.

ricpic said...

There goes tradguy disrespecting and objectifying persons who only tangentially happen to be women.

Sexy librarians and my thoughts roam over to Mrs.Palin.

I saw that I won the heart of a young sexy librarian accidentally.

She works in the special books section at the main library a block up Broadway where you pick up books from other libraries. I go, "Do you want to hear something incredibly stupid?" She looks up at me wearily as if I'm about to deliver a complaint about someone else being stupid. I go, I was getting negative results with everything I searched online then realized I was entering the number on the Denver Art Museum Card not the library card. The Art Museum is right outside the back door. At that point she beamed because the mistake I made had to do with art and libraries and that appealed to her. So I said at least I had the sense to get the Botanical Gardens card out of the way, to press that whole 'I get confused about all the little artsy civic card things in my wallet' routine that I had going on there that seemed to be working. Nothing came of it, but still, that told me something about something. Maybe. Plus she's still there.

Now do it with black men.

I love the reverse Austin Power transformation.

Since the topic is the appearance of women, would you consider getting a different photo to place at the top of the blog? I find it off-putting that you appear to be turning your back on the commenters. Not being constrained like the Duke of Urbino, you might just use a profile from the opposite side.

That doesn't seem to work for Mary McDonnell of the TV show The Closer. She always looks better with her glasses on.

Amartel said...

Nothing to do with the glasses and everything to do with hair and makeup. Also, was that Rachel Maddow in there towards the end? The one that didn't bother to take off the glasses?

Alex said...

Mary McDonnell was hot as Laura Roslin.

I like girls in glasses because it's like you're getting a 2-for-1.

Quaestor said...

Glasses on, glasses off. Who's hot and who's not.

Freeman Hunt said...

People treat you differently depending on whether or not you're wearing your glasses. If you want better service somewhere, take off your glasses. I call it the Clark Kent Effect.

Jeffery said...

So we need one where a regular person is talking - professor or journalist - and then they take their glasses off and a raving Marxist anti-White hater is revealed. Oh well, that would be pretty much most of those professions.

gadfly said...

The lastest and greatest glasses are those designed to keep on - rather than take off. Geordi La Forge would be proud that he has wrought these Google-ly Eyes.

But you may prefer these Eyez eyeglass frames equipped with a camera, microphone and recorder for no more than you would pay for frames from Lenscrafters.

@Quaester Hilarious!

Meade and I watched the whole thing and laughed a lot in the end.

"Well, helLO!"

Quaestor said...

That's a clip from "The Big Sleep" with Bogart as Philip Marlowe and Bacall as a spoiled society dame with a gambling habit and an nympho kid sister. Interesting how Bogart can transform himself from hard boiled shamus to milquetoast bookworm and back again with just a pair of dark glasses (usually de rigueur for the "cool" look) and flip of his hat brim (and a bit of understated talent).

Popville said...

Big Sleep, my favorite movie. William Falkner was one of the screenwriters, and the screenplay was re-written so many times even director Howard Hawks exclaimed he had no clue what was actually occuring. The confusion was due to Hays Office censorship, forcing last minute changes to Chandler's plot. But more scenes between Bogart & Elisha Cook Jr. (Greenstreet's punk bitch thug in The Maltese Falcon) make it all good.
