The Miss Hooters contest in Toronto
After a second Miss Hooters contest I've discovered that I really like the honey garlic chicken. I think it's the fried crunchy batter. One has to notice the food while waiting for the contest to start. In Brampton tables were packed two hours before the contest. I figured I'd get to the resturant a bit early to get a seat and grab some grub.
Sure enough, by seven o'clock, it was jammed packed, standing room only, with photographers, friends, and fans. The layout of this contest compared to last weeks was a bit better. The stage for one was facing the dining area and the people watching. In Brampton the stage was tiny and for the most part the girls were facing away from the majority of the audience.
Before the show started I met Julie Hinton, a gorgeous gal who just happens to be a model. She was promoting her new calendar. Which, by the way, is available for purchase on her web site www.juliehinton.com. Technically I thought the calendar was nicely shot. Nice lighting. Nice locale. Oh yes and nice model (both in personality and looks).

It was interesting to see people's reactions at the event. Something I've noticed both during the contest and in life is that women can be pretty cruel to other women. Why is that? Do guys talk about other guys in the same way? When's the last time you heard a guy saying that another guy had fat ankles? or fake body parts?
I suppose bringing up the womens "problem features" would be the equivalent to a guy bringing up the loser factor or intelligence quotient of another guy. "Idiot", "Dumbass", "Lard butt", "Asshole", "Fu@khead" etc. These are guy sayings. Not really nice but not made up. Usually these names given are based on fact. Even if it was a fact that happened long ago.
For example if a guy does something dumb. He's called "stupid", "dullard", "fu@k head" (you get the idea). It could be something that he did a long time ago but it happened at some point. If a women has large breasts other women are the first to identify them as fake even if they are or not. I'm referring to women that are fully clothed or at least where it's not obvious that they may have implants.
In this case women go on gut reactions where as the guy goes on observation. Why is this? In the playgound did the "good looking" girl cause havoc with the balance of power in the sand box? Fast forward a couple of years and now the women are on automatic defensive mode?
I would like to see another women feel another womens breasts before they come to that conclusion or at the very least see them naked. Then again I'm sure other guys would want to see that as well.
I figured I'd write this little entry to see if we get any reaction from the peanut gallery out there. Last weeks entry seemed to be quite the gab generator.

Can you rename the blog link to something more appropriate like "bagel-porn.blogspot.com" or "porn-meister.blogspot.com"
Quotes from Naomi Wolf, born 1962. She is a bestselling American writer, known for her advocacy of feminism, progressive politics, and Zionism.
"No matter what a woman's appearance may be, it will be used to undermine what she is saying and taken to individualize - as her personal problem - observations she makes about the beauty myth in society."
"'Beauty' is a currency system like the gold standard. Like any economy, it is determined by politics, and in the modern age in the West is the last, best belief system that keeps male dominance intact."
Quotes from Gloria Steinem, born 1934. She is a US feminist and journalist and a spokeswoman for women's rights.
"We've begun to raise daughters more like sons... but few have the courage to raise our sons more like our daughters."
"A pedestal is as much a prison as any small, confined space."
This is for Cupcake...
"Set phasers on stun" Quote from Kirk. Star Trek TOS. It's great you can quote other women. I even agree with Naomi Wolf. You can replace the female gender with the male gender in those statments and it would still hold true.
There are ugly people, there are beautiful people. There's rich and poor. It may not be right but it's a reality. Echoing the anonymous person in the last blog entry Bill Gates stated to a high school during a speech "Life is not fair. Get used to it."
This is for Zee...
Considering that out of 328 pictures posted on the blog (wow I didn't think I've made that many entries)only 15 of them feature women that are half clothed and or nude. Actually the one picture where the women is nude is in a image projection behind Al.
I would hardly think this site is a porn site. At least in North America. Sure there are countries where a girl's bare ankle is considered risque.
In all fairness if I get permission to shoot a tasteful nude and post it I will.
I quote because I wanted to support myself with contemporary studies and not just appear like I'm shooting from the hip about the subject I'm talking about.
Quotes from John Berger, born 1926. He is an art historian, who wrote "Ways of Seeing".
"Men act and women appear. Men look at women. Women watch themselves being looked at."
"Nakedness reveals itself. Nudity is placed on display. The nude is condemned to never being naked. Nudity is a form of dress."
See you on Sunday for your belated birthday dinner! I've got a yummy menu planned.
I like cupcake. She seems to know stuff!
Yeah it's too bad she negates anything she's said by entering the following...
"When are you going to cover a male model contest? There are some of us who would appreciate some buff male bods, in addition to your T&A pics. If we're to objectify beautiful bodies, let's objectify them all.
Buff male bods please."
After that who can take her seriously. :->
