Humorous World War I postcard, which more than suggests that women made do quite nicely while the men were gone.

I suppose this was designed to make the soldiers feel better that other men weren't messing with their property while they were away.

Because, of course, women wouldn't want to actually be with other women - it's only a "temporary" diversion. Right?

What is that quote from Gloria Steinem, "A Woman without a Man is like a fish without a bicycle" or something.

So how many men came home from the war to find their wives and/or girlfriends marching to a different drummer?

Very provacative postcard - but the guy in the background doesn't look too upset, either.
