Cock o' The Walk

Apparently there are roosters who are getting just as lazy as some of the guys we've all known. No wining, no dining, just right to third date action. Or whatever your time frame is for this stuff. I'm going with a general punchline here.

It won't come as much of a surprise to some women that certain courtly characteristics have been bred out of the masculine beings on this planet. And while people certainly aren't birds, I think the message is getting just as skewed on our side of the equation.

Our media is saturated with sex, and subtlety and nuance can't elbow their way to the front of the line. Flirting is dead, replaced by aggression and control. Talking heads are scratching their heads over women behaving like this, and I'm confused by it too. Is flashing your breasts a symbol of your feminine power, or just easier than writing your phone number on the bathroom wall? I don't think those doing it are sure either. Probably more a symbol of consumed liquor than female solidarity.

Not sure how roosters and boobs hooked up in my brain this morning. Guess someone has to stay out in left field, just in case the batter connects.
