Sometimes I just feel so sorry for our mothers and grandmothers, growing up on this kind of propaganda. Wait a minute! Some of us grew up on this too! Agh.

A doozie after the jump.

I had almost no sex ed at school, so that explains why I drink (scotch?) with a cigarette in my mouth.

Seriously, it is interesting that the propaganda was going in the other way in this period. Now the same thing can be found in abstinence-only programs and to justify them, except they say that people who know about sex become sluts and people who are "innocent" (aka ignorant) are the ones who marry and have kids, etc. Interesting how that changed.

I kinda like the look of the woman in the 2nd block with the booze and cigarette. She looks like she'd be fun. :)

Damn funny. Thanks for the laugh, Bil.
