But I can assure you most men in a show of disrespect for women, using the terms combined with the pictures, have no doubt about the meaning of the words.
ANY 12 year old could log into this forum and read what you just posted which has your name on it.

Eight years ago when our grandchildren were teens they logged in to this forum to see just what The Villages were all about when we said we were moving here and read my posts.

Kids know a LOT about US. Yes they do. There is also an Urban Dictionary readily available on the net.

What is the Average Age That a Teen Starts Sexting?

I'll risk a chance on a kid seeing those fishing pictures, especially when compared to the Bratz dolls five and six year old girls play with today. I'm attaching a picture of one. Frankly, I think these should be taken off the market, along with thong panties for pre-teen girls. Yes, those are available at all department stores. But those are MY boundaries. We all have different ones.

Our kids are already so overloaded on a daily basis with the likes of Miley, the Kardashians, and any "Housewives" franchise that I think a couple of retro girlie posters should be the least of a parent's worries.

However, for those of you that still think it is inappropriate, let me ask you this. How far are you willing to go? We can politically correct ourselves right into a society that accepts nothing less than the most conservative of ideology where no one talks about sex, no one drinks alcohol, women are seen fully clothed at all times when in public . . . oh, wait, some countries are already doing that.

Some of us dislike girlie posters and some of us dislike Bratz dolls and some of us dislike seeing older women in skimpy get-ups having a little too much to drink down there at the square. The good news is that we live in a country where we get to freely vocalize our likes and dislikes. Not everyone will agree with us and the change we seek may or may not happen.

I know a lot of you are not going to agree with my post. And that's okay.
Excellent post.

I reread your first post and then reread this one above ........... and it occurs to me that you had to explain in more detail just how "dirty" these pin-up posters were.

I have been married for many years, have raised two sons, worked and traveled and yet you had to take apart the posters to explain to us all in detail that the words bush and rod are indecent! I have never before thought of the words bush and rod as being erotica, but then I guess I don't go through life looking for the double entendre in everything. Your thinking reminds me of the censors who used to go through all the movies looking for imagined filth.

It's not fair to say that all the posters on this board are mean to women.

I am so tired of politically correct thinking and attacks on the developer.

No wonder people can't communicate on a message board.

The big problem lies in where does it stop. Now it's a petition for pictures on a rec center wall. Then it will go to the movies at the squares, then the books in the library, etc..... The world is a big place filled with all kinds of life. Some is awesome, some is not. But it's a good thing that someone isn't censoring everything and controlling all that we are allowed to see & do.

FunTrivia a very heavily used trivia web-site is very family friendly and will boot people who use foul language and post r and/or x rated kind of language. That's in the public section of it though. I have had some particularly foul attacks on me when I am in a private group challenging one another to get the most questions right and fastest in a Tournament. And if someone really starts complaining then the culprit in the private Tournament gets banned for whatever time the moderator deems appropriate. http://www.funtrivia.com/?ref=Taltarzac

My point is context in important.

If you hell "God is great" during a showing of American Sniper you might have a half dozen guys and gals tackling you. And, this might be in the Villages even if most of these six would be over 65.

The pool room posters just show me that there is life here in some in the Villages. And life with all its foibles.

I love the whole pin up genre of art. It is a real kind of art from the era of the forties. It includes the artist Varga and also encompasses all of the the nose cone art from the second world war pilots airplanes. It was not demeaning to women unless you have that mind set. We were all young and better looking than we are now, and most of us have pictures of us snapped in our bathing suits.

I am offended by people offended by the fact that was included in the art hung on the wall of that rec center because it absolutely fit in with a fish camp pool room of that era's dcor. I don't have stuff like that in my house because that is not the kind of dcor I have, but it is part and parcel of the art of that era. Including the double entendres.

GOOD GRIEF. Do we have any body who is old enough to post on a senior forum. I was a small child in the forties and I saw this kind of pin up art as a child and I am still kicking. Nose cone art below. Disclaimer, don't open if you will be offended by what our pilots put on their airplanes back then.

Let me explain it to you.. I am a man and have heard these words and many more, used in a show of disrespect for women. When one adds the words bush and rod to the photos, posed by women, here is no doubt of the meaning conveyed. Many responses seem to have no problem with these two pictures, If the photos were of scantily clothed men with similar suggestive words, would they feel the same. And to portray this as art or erotica is hogwash.
