Bare breasts vs. neighbour's ATV - Canada - Canoe.ca

TORONTO - Marika De Florio is using bare breasts to win a feud with her neighbours.

The 56-year-old says she is sick and tired of her neighbours' five-year-old grandson driving a loud all-terrain vehicle for hours on her quiet street in Seeley's Bay, near Kingston. So she found a solution under her shirt.

De Florio has discovered that if she goes out topless, the boy's horrified grandparents rush the child into the house.

And she said she will continue to go topless every time the child rides the ATV.

"It is maddening," she said of the noise.

"I'm going mental. I can't breathe and I'm not moving, but I need some peace. I can't believe I did this, but they pulled the kid inside and then called police because of their small-town mentality."


De Florio says the problems with her neighbours, Mike and Nancy Berry, started two years ago when she moved to the area.

Leeds OPP, which covers Seeley's Bay, have received complaint calls from both De Florio and the Berrys.

She is not breaking the law, because in Canada women are allowed to be topless.

"There is not a criminal charge for that ... not since 1996," said Toronto Police Const. Isabelle Cotton.

De Florio says she decided to go topless to solve the problem because police wouldn't do anything about the ATV noise. She said it's the bravest thing she has ever done.

"I'll do what I have to to eradicate this problem," she said.

Mike Berry says he is also at the end of his rope.

"I'm not happy with what has been going on," he said. "We need a little give and take. It isn't right to go around topless in front of kids."

Bare-breasted protesting has gained notoriety and popularity over the past decade.

Former University of Guelph student Gwen Jacobs caused an uproar when she strolled topless down the street on a hot summer day in July 1991.

She fought all the way to the Ontario Court of Appeal and won the right for women in the province to go shirtless in public, so long as they are not seeking commercial gain or displaying overt sexuality.

Protest groups, such as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, have grabbed media attention around the world by protesting activities ranging from bullfighting to wearing fur with staged PR stunts using topless women.

And women across North America have engaged in a number of topless protests over the right to breastfeed in public.

Older women are generally not intimidated. Rather than tune them out, consider it no-risk friendly flirting practice to build up confidence?

That way you can branch out beyond the "safe" conversations with the undatable, no-risk-of-rejection junkie. Or at least you'll be more likle to project an open vibe that's inviting to the younger, attractive, assertive women.
Thank you for the advice, AliEnvy and it all makes sense.

Its strange, some attractive women my age, I can talk to with no problem, but it probably has much more to do with their personalities putting me at ease than any confidence I have.

I am reasonably confident in most areas, but when it comes to women, I just don't have the slightest clue. Thats why it is difficult to accept for me(even though its probably true) that they are somehow intimidated by me. Me? The kid the girls walk right by to get all over a beer bellied douchebag at a party?

Anyways, thanks, and sorry to derail the thread.

Cougars and sugar daddies, continue........

I just had to post this because I love "Canadian Cougar Convention". Who knew they had conventions?


Vancouver Sun June 28

In nature, cougars aren't prone to eating crow.

For organizers of the inaugural Canadian Cougar Convention, it may be a different story.

Claiming there's life in the label yet -- "cougar" is slang for an older woman who dates younger men -- event coordinators predict a big turnout for the July 9 festivities, which will include the crowning of Miss Cougar Canada. But a backlash is brewing, with marketing overload seeing one-time champions of the term starting to distance themselves from what they say it's become: A meaningless catch-all for any female who owns wrinkle cream.

Even Valerie Gibson, the Canadian author who pioneered the cougar craze in 2001, says she's stopped using the sobriquet to self-identify -- though in support of May-December lifestyles, she's agreed to be a keynote speaker at the Toronto convention.

"What's important in this, to me, is the sociological phenomenon of it: Women taking control of their sexual lives," says Gibson, who continues to date much younger men. "But I no longer stand up and say, 'I'm a cougar, I'm a cougar.' The word has drifted into incredibly different areas since I started it."

Though intended by Gibson as a term of "empowerment for the 40-plus" single female, cougar has been erroneously used to describe everyone from Claire Danes, 31, to Michelle Pfeiffer, who's been married to the same man since 1993. Add in sleazy dating sites, reality TV shows, exploitative advertisements, radio contests and all manner of other cougar-centric marketing efforts and it's easy to see why some believe the trope has reached its tipping point.

" 'Cougar' has long passed the point of having any real cachet and is now being milked for all its worth by people with products to sell," says lexicographer Grant Barrett, editor of The Official Dictionary of Unofficial English. "It's been absolutely pummelled with overuse."

Barrett, who tracks the life cycles of slang, says cougar will never fully disappear from the vernacular, continuing to be used by "people who have only the flimsiest grasp of the zeitgeist." But like bling-bling and metro-sexual before it, he says the word has definitely lost its juice.

Producers of ABC's Cougar Town, for example, are weighing a name change for the hit Courteney Cox comedy. Google has stopped running cougar advertisements on its content network. And Carnival, host of the "world's first cougar cruise" in 2009, has chosen not to accept any future group bookings under that theme.

But Jennifer Pozner, executive director of Women In Media & News, fears the word will enjoy a robust second life in the headlines, "especially as it has been widened to apply to nearly any woman who dates a man a few years younger."

"Such sexist tropes, regardless of their inaccuracy, tend to live out long media lives," says Pozner, author of the forthcoming book Reality Bites Back: The Troubling Truth About Guilty Pleasure TV.

"We're still dealing with the cultural baggage of that completely inaccurate, infamous Newsweek cover story from the '80s that claimed that single women over 40 were more likely to get killed by a terrorist than they were to get married."

Rich Gosse, executive producer of cougarevents. com, sees things differently.

" 'Cougar' has legitimized something that's been going on for thousands of years," says Gosse, whose company is behind the Canadian convention. "Frankly, we'd love it if the word became boring and people started saying, 'This is so commonplace, why even talk about it?' But it hasn't gotten to that point yet."

Cougar Capitalism - Economix Blog - NYTimes.com

Quote:
The cougars are a relatively new feature of our economic ecology. But it’s not too early to ponder the contrasts between cougar capitalism and the more purely masculine cowboy capitalism of an earlier era.

Has anyone ever seen the show Strange Sex on TLC? They had this 73 year old woman who dates only younger men-she was divorced at 48 and was doing that long before it became more accepted. On the episode she arranged a date with this 33 year old guy through her web site and she has no trouble getting dates. I thought she said how old she was but he said she was "a bit" older than he expected when they met. She's very openly sexual and likes hot young guys.

He used to be married to someone his age and they had two kids-but other than that he likes older women and he was going to see her again. If you want to catch it On Demand it's the first episode.

They also had one about balloon fetishes-that was, um, interesting.
