I miss the rare ould times when people could distinguish between words like pretty, beautiful and sexy. Some blonde cyborg walking by in a catsuit that looks three sizes below the indecent exposure law would be sexy. An intelligent woman who fights for herself and her crew (and looks pretty nice while doing it too) is beautiful.
A pretty woman is someone who walks by the bus stop, and all the boys heads turn.
A beautiful woman is someone who walks by the bus stop and all the men's heads turn.
A gorgeous woman is someone who walks by the bus stop and all the women's heads turn.
Speaking of beautiful, sexy women... here's great, if old, TV guide article with Lucy Lawless (Xena) and Jeri Ryan about "wonder women".
Lucy's line... "... Maybe we've just caught the wave of grrrl power. It's very hard to analyze any of this. I mean, 40 years of feminism has culminated with the Spice Girls..."
