“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms… And the impervious shelter, beneath which it has prospered.”

Friday T&A: Pin-Up Girl Edition

by | Nov 16, 2018 | fat girl jihad, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Every now and then I like to go back in time a little, to the good old days when women managed to look gorgeous yet curvy without Instagram filters and Photoshop. Unfortunately, those good old days have long since gone to where all such times go to die. And nowadays all you get is a constant parade of thots who are surgically enhanced, cosmetically altered, and artificially filtered to the point where you can’t even tell that they’re quite real anymore.

And, hey, I am just as guilty as anyone else in giving these women the validation that they so obviously desire. The weekly Friday T&A segment is pretty much everybody’s favourite part of this blog, more or less by popular acclaim. I guess that most of my readers tend to have the same low tastes that I do – which, of course, is a very Good Thing, since as we all know my taste is exquisite.

This time, the retro girl of the moment is, of course, the legendary pin-up queen Bettie Page.

She died about ten years ago, and it seems that she had a very interesting life story. She was a country gal from Nashville, TN, and then became a born-again evangelical Christian, working for Rev. Billy Graham. Later in her life, she suffered from a severe nervous breakdown due to acute schizophrenia and placed under state supervision.

Let’s just say that her life was not an easy one.

As is so often the way of such things, interest in her career picked up considerably after her death. And it’s not difficult to see why. Back in her prime, she was quite the knockout, and her signature style has been hugely influential – in both good and bad ways – on pop culture ever since.

So enjoy this little throwback to better days, when women actually looked like women. Most modern Instathots simply would not be able to compete with Ms. Page in her prime, mostly because they look fake and insincere, but she looked real and alive.

As always, enjoy the weekend, take it easy, get some rest, and be ready for the trials of the week ahead.
