MILF: Transformative or Oppressive?

So if you didn’t get a chance to listen in last night as we debated the term “MILF” you should tune in and listen to the rebroadcast (instructions below). I now have a full-on girl crush on Francesca (of the husky voice) and Kristen (who at 2 weeks post-partum is more articulate than honey on a biscuit). We had so much fun talking, laughing, and arguing, it felt (for a blessed 45 minutes) like I was transformed to an earlier time, when girlfriends and guffawing and debating were an everyday occurrence.

I’m also grateful that the broadcast didn’t pick up the world-class fit my 5 year old was pitching in the other room. Thank GOD for grandparents! Thanks Dad & Barb!

    I wasn’t able to listen live, but I did catch the “rebroadcast” — it sounded great!

    My only comment on the topic — since my others would probably be dismissed by some because of my Y chromosome — is that the term “MILF”, as used on our site, refers to a state of mind. It’s about making the most out of what you have, whatever that may be, and feeling good about yourself. It’s not about trying to fit into any mold that society has dictated. Personally, I rank self-confidence very high on the scale of what I find attractive about a woman.

    By the way, unfortunately you guys already missed the MYLF boat: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=mylf&btnG=Google+Search

    Dammit!!
    And I heartily agree with you, Prescott, that MILF is an attitude.

    I still thought it was great rigorous fun to hear the other side of the thing, but I’m still pro-MILF

    I thought it was fun, too. And I can certainly understand how someone might not appreciate having the term applied to them — but in our case, we’re promoting women (and men) embracing the term themselves, so perhaps “MYLF” is indeed more appropriate.

    I think bottom line is that, like most language, it’s all about the context in which the term is used.

    Hmmm. I hadn’t thought of it before as an attitude (v. a reality)! I like that take on it!

    Her intro/warning about f-bombs is hilarious!

    If I wasn’t sick (and therefore asleep shamefully early) I would totally have called in last night. I had to settle for listening to it after-the-fact, this morning, which was frustrating, because it only confirmed that I missed a good discussion! ‘Attitude’ goes a long way toward mitigating my discomfort with the whole ‘MILF’ thing, which I think can get overblown into a weird mama-cougar dynamic. Attitude I can get behind.

    Dude, you had a child in the next room screaming? I’d have been a fruit basket with extra pineapple in your shoes. Wow. You and Kristen both pulling out the preserving-the-sanity stops. Seriously, it was awesome talking to you and the only thing I regret is that now I don’t have it to look forward to! It’s like when the play is over — boo hoo hoo nothing nice will ever happen again.

    You were amazing. I am so glad I had that chance to connect with you.
