Another example of what women used to look like

I don’t have too many details on this image. As I recall, it is a fairly old photo. An Australian girl I think. Nicely dressed. Probably a stay-at-home mum. Pretty enough. Well fed, but not overweight. Most or all of her sexual history probably involved her husband.

… before too many women became fat and tarty and feminist.

    There are all the feminine virtues in that picture. The baby’s legging got my attention. They are hand knitted. While you are probably right about being Australian, this could be the American rural West from the sixties.

      I have a feeling that it was an Australian picture. They look Australian too and the strong sun suggests Queensland. I seem to recall it was there.

      Yes. Women really do need masculine authority. The last fifty years have demonstrated that. (Something the Catholic Church has always known.)

    Julian, woman from that time period have that sort of “look” about them (i.e., happy in their femininity). Now most of them can look anywhere from a slut bitch with attitude to miserable fat ass land whale. Very disgusting creatures.

      I am old enough to remember women in the Sixties in Australia. Like the Fifties, it is a much-maligned time. But I do remember women as generally contented in the Sixties.

      It is possible to be “spoiled for choice”. In those days, the expectations of women were narrower but probably, for most women, not all, they were healthy and sensible expectations.

      And yes, they did have a certain look. More modest and sane.

      Mind you, such women still exist. I saw a young mum at the shops just now. She was no “hottie” but perfectly pleasant looking and dressed in a fetching dress of a nice length. She was doing some shopping and had a child in her arms. And she was safe, not least because men like me respect her and her role.

      Here is something I wrote about dressing your role a while back. This sort of thing shouldn’t need saying; it is just common sense really:
