This is the fifth or sixth time I’ve received this ‘joke’ email in as many months. I finally started objecting to its senders, although I’ll admit that I let the first few pass.
The misogyny of this just jumps out at you. Add to this racism and ageism and we have the perfect triumvirate of offence. This ticks all the boxes; it’s revolting. I wish people would just think before they send things like this around, and realise that they’re achieving nothing more than the perpetuation of contempt towards women.
So very frustrating.
GEOGRAPHY OF A WOMAN:
Between 18 and 20 a woman is like Africa, half discovered, half wild, naturally beautiful with fertile deltas.
Between 21 and 30 a woman is like America, well-developed and open to trade especially for someone with cash.
Between 31 and 35 she is like India, very hot, relaxed and convinced of her own beauty.
Between 36 and 40 a woman is like France, gently ageing but still a warm and desirable place to visit.
Between 41 and 50 she is like Yugoslavia, lost the war – haunted by past mistakes. Massive reconstruction is now necessary.
Between 51 and 60, she is like Russia, very wide and borders are un-patrolled. The frigid climate keeps people away.
Between 61 and 70, a woman is like Mongolia, with a glorious and all conquering past but alas, no future.
After 70, they become Afghanistan. Almost everyone knows where it is, but no one wants to go there.
GEOGRAPHY OF A MAN:
Between 15 and 70 a man is like Iran – ruled by a dick.
SEND THIS TO A SMART WOMAN WHO NEEDS A LAUGH AND TO MEN YOU THINK CAN HANDLE IT.
If there was mood meter here, it would read: very, very annoyed.
