Vintage Durango: WOWEE! Staring at women

by Patty Templeton

Apparently, the Durango Herald used to run hard-nipped pics of women – because, I mean, it’s the women’s page. What else do you put on that page? Pictures of ladies, right? Women are interested in women, yeah?

Except that the intention of this photo was straight up male gaze. You have a dude staring directly at an exotic dancer’s chest saying, “WOWEE!” He’s not shamed for his actions, he’s praised by being put in the paper as some kind of flesh pioneer – the discoverer of natural wonders.

Here’s the thing, fella: Princess Tanya may be an exotic dancer in a local club, but she is off the clock. So quit your gawking and go back to your dominoes. Some might say, “Well, if she doesn’t want to be looked at, she should put a bra on.” I can guaran-dang-tee that Princess Tanya got unwanted attention no matter what she was wearing, so shut up about the bra. Don’t blame a woman for a man not able to control himself.

Also, the “Women’s Page?” Seriously? Women have a nice little section dedicated to their pretty little heads? Because why would women be interested in the whole paper – you know, local and world news – when they could read about food prices, men liking breasts, and how to make bacon and cheese popcorn?
