dlowan - ties right in the the adage that fancy cars are compensation.
The scary thing is that I don't think that's just in the minds of the men, either!
I had always thought that that was more of a male display for other males thing....you know, like a territorial display.
However, I actually saw one of those big red dick cars the other day, parked near a coffee place.
I was passing it, kind of sniggering to myself, in a superior manner, when the owner returned.
There, right in front of my eyes, two young women who were passing stopped, and began to fawn all over the young man about the car.
I was ashamed of my half of the species.
That being said, I was also laughing at myself, and wondering what is the corollary to the big red dick car for women like me?
