This thread may or may not be appreciated by people, but here it goes... I was watching a show the other day about the "playboy girls" who live at Hugh Hefner's mansion and live a life people dream of...BUT, for that, they have to go out at his "parties", wear skimpy clothes for guys they don't know and just, in my opinion, degrade themselves. I started thinking if most women are like that, and my wife and I started talking about it(luckily, she is nothing like that at all). I do know now there were and are many women we can be proud of, including alot of the women here at this site. Here are a few women I really respect: 1. Lyudmila Pavlichinko-She was a young, beautiful Russian woman during WW2 who joined the Soviet army after the Nazis invaded. She became a sniper and courageouly fought the Nazi invasion(her total kills in the war came to 309 Nazi soldiers). She was invited by Elanor Roosevelt to tour the US. She was awarded the Hero of the Soviet Union medal in 1943(their equivalent to the US's Medal of Honor). 2. Esther-She is the Esther you read of in the Bible. She, by historical accounts, was a beautiful but strong willed woman. She saved her Jewish nation from death by coming to the king and pleading for their lives(well, she and God both saved them:smile: ). 3. Gorshi-This is a woman who lives down from the base Im stationed on. Her and my wife are good friends. She was a German Jew who survived the Holocaust and came to the US alone when she was still young. She has worked hard all her life, and I respect her so much(she still has the tatto the Nazis gave to all the Jews that were sent to the camps). Those are just a few of the many. So guys, don't view women as just sex objects. Respect them.
