More About Plastic People


Papo apparently has a familiar perspective on the role of a woman on a farm.

That said, isn't odd that dogs are generally seen as masculine, cats as feminine.

What's with that?

p.s. my Halloween outfit is a puppy dog costume. Puppy dog, the "puppy" is important.

You should put a photo of you in your costume on your blog tomorrow!

Hey, I never noticed that about cats and dogs... How strange. I guess though they can both be considered a 'female' thing IF you get what I mean.

My father calls ALL animals "him." Don't have a clue why, but he says it just makes life easier LOL!

We totally need to see a costume picture! And I have no idea why cats are considered feminine - I'd take a dog over a cat any day. :-)

Linda said...

My cat, flicted, will take on your dog, corrin... LOL! :)

I am also voting to see your pic of the costume!!

I am not sure anyone actually took any pictures : /

What...no pictures! I'm sure they are better than plastic people and cats and dogs.

I'm obviously running against the trend - a female dog and a male cat. People don't much expect the dog to be male, but the majority will refer to the cat as female.

I remember as a child thinking dogs should marry cats and asking my mother why not. Deathly silence.

I am right there with the ones who think of dogs as hims unless they are a feminine breed like poodles and bichons. Crazy!
