The hilarious part to me is that most men, while they love to look, and ogle, and even fantasize about these women, they really don't care. While it may cause most men to stop and look at the, ummm.. products.. a little longer (which is what the marketers are going for) chances are the wanna-be-barbies are flapping their botoxed lips and all the guy is hearing is "blah, blah, blah... look at this rack!... blah blah blah..."
And, while most of the girls are purported to enjoy a hunting or fishing lifestyle, I can almost guarantee that most hold to a vegan or vegetarian (or whatever the correct term is) diet, if they even eat at all. I'd love to see one of those hot mamas pull a 50# draw weight on a bow. I'd love to see them say something besides "oooo... look at the pretty deer... ooo... that one has pretty little horns." I'd love to see them without make-up... Ok, maybe not, because I'm guessing that's just plain scary. I'm also gonna bet that the botoxed flappers eventually start to sound like an obnoxious mosquito with a high-pitched buzzing sound that you just can't get away from.
Ok, that was kinda harsh. Maybe. Truth is, I really don't know. I've never been to a SHOT show and I've never met one of these beauties in person. But, from a girls perspective, I can only imagine the maintenance it takes to stay looking that beautiful. In fact, between my husband and I, I would be the one looking at the girls thinking... I wonder how many lunges she does to get legs like that? Or.. Ooooo.. Look.. that one needs to do a few more crunches!
So, basically, all of my rambling comes down to the simple fact that I don't care one way or another. I would definitely appreciate them not being in the outdoor world because then I wouldn't feel so inadequate physically. But, I also know that I've done and can do more in the outdoors, that I can do it independently, and I bet my husband thinks I look more beautiful with my camo overalls covered in blood and fur. In the meantime, all the calendars and photos just give me something more to laugh at, while, hopefully, these stuffed and implanted gals can sell more outdoor products and keep the sports of hunting and fishing alive. What's your take on it all? Like 'em? Hate 'em? Or don't care?
