So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys - to woo women - and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do.
Via, um Playboy
I love how astonished people are that this came from Playboy when Hugh Hefner has been a pretty solid feminist throughout his entire life.
While objectification comes straight to mind, Hefner believes playmates are “glorified” as a “friend and equal.” And, to his credit, they’re far from wanton libertines or nameless nudes: Through interviews, the playmates are often presented as educated, assertive, hard-working and individualist (also presented, however, are their measurements).
"Playboy insisted women had desire, indeed a right to desire, just as society assumed men did.”
