[FONT=Verdana]So the passionate discussion about women in the "depressed about your collection" thread got me thinking about those moments as a boy were women “accelerated” your ascension into manhood.....[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]*Keeping in the spirit of forum decorum, and without detailing gratuitous personal information better suited for other forums, or Fark.com articles.....[/FONT][FONT=Verdana]what fictional women (characters), played key roles in your transition from boy to man? Maybe a brief explanation too….[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]My selected short list would be:[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Leia in Jabba slave gear: enough said[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Elvira: femme fatal has never looked....ahem....fuller.....[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Wilma Deering from Buck Rodgers….the episode with those telekinetic-powered midgets….[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Catwoman, Batman Returns: see comment on Leia above[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]The women from Dickens’ Great Expectations: can’t really explain that one, except to say that Pip’s draw to Estella vs. the better, obvious choice, Biddy, had a lot to say to me about unrequited desire for the wrong types of women….sadly I made the same mistakes as Pip in college![/FONT]
Juliet, of the Shakespeare fame: a lot to say about passion and the tragedy that often is love.
Princes Buttercup: the virtue of true love....and great filmmaking!
Ripley: Aliens 2 made me rethink women as heroes.
Wonder Woman: Thank you Linda Carter. God loves you.
The Barronness: Is that why Sarah Palin is so popular right now?
