Gloria Steinem reputedly said that a, “woman reading Playboy feels a little like a Jew reading a Nazi manual,”
I am not arguing that the mag or the clubs were feminist approved, but I believe that parties at the mansion were, because Hef treated women as equals at the mansion, and insisted that everyone else did as well. Women were decorations? That is not the way I heard it at the time.
You actually keep a straight face and claim the mansion parties were feminist approved????? First of all, there is no such thing as "Officials Feminist Approval", this is a figment of your fevered imagination. You remind me of those creepy ass guys who seem to just know in their bones that there is an open
orgy going on every single minute of the whole god damned day, and if they keep probing with their creepy question and slimy innuendo somebody will slip up and give them the directions and magic password. Without a doubt, in matters of human sexuality you have to be the most shallow, most ill-informed and foolish males I've ever encountered. And speaking as a female linguist/analyst who began working at DOD in the late 60's, as a young woman I met many of your brethren. I met some real cretins, but skippy, you take the cake.
The few women who were employed by DOD mostly worked as secretaries and personnel administrators and were civilians. At that time in history, none of the service branches trained women in any of the technical fields. I lucked out as one of the few civilian women to work with and among WWII vets, the Korean War Vets and because Vietnam was still wild and wooly, active duty Soldiers who returned from the War zones were assigned in our offices to finish
up their 4 year tours. ASA soldiers usually didn't get to decide if they cared to go to Vietnam, unlike today, they only were compelled to go once. Additional tours were voluntary.
And since when did Hugh Hefner EVER think women were human let alone his equal. That's the largest load of bullshit you have ever hurled, I'm surprised you had the strength to lift it. You are a moron. (My apologies in advance to civilized moron)
One clarification, the majority of the men were decent men, they were incredibly bright and although there was a great deal of good natured banter, they didn't behave badly, which is probably why the ones who were diehard creeps stood out like sore thumbs.
