You’ve Come a Long Way Baby

Are you tired of having your life dictated by a bunch of simpletons who think the Earth is 6,000 years old? Don’t you wish the Rapture would hurry up and get here so we can finally be rid of those self-righteous Biblehumps?

Don’t despair. Progress is slowly (or make that slo-o-o-o-o-wly) being made.

On this date in 1923, the U.S. Attorney General ruled that it’s now legal for women to wear pants in public. Oh. My. God!!!

Just try to imagine the hysteria — the anguish! — that must have reverberated among the Faithful. Little did these poor people know that thirty years in the future, the Devil’s Music would rear its head and enslave this great nation once and for all.

Hat Tip to the local bookstore, whose daily chalkboard message provided the above information.

Interesting - and in 1923, converse sneakers were re-named Chuck Taylor All Stars - the birth of the Chucks. Too bad now their owned by Nike and made with child slave labor in indonesia.

And in 1934 that bastard WAllace Carothers invented the nylon they make pantyhose out of.

Good to know! :)

Jeez Louise, between the "pants in public" controversy and the precursor to the dreaded pantyhose, 1923 was "we hate women" year!

Anonymous: I think that whole era was "we hate women." And other races. And people who do physical labor. And people who drink...

Lew: The first camel toe? Hey, don't get me aroused like that.
