Coachella & Hypergamy

Watching this video posted on my blog — The Lumineers Perform "Stubborn Love" — I noticed in the audience a whole bunch of (rather hot) gals sitting on their boyfriends' shoulders. God bless 'em! Natural state of affairs, correct?

You saw this at least as far back in ancient times as Woodstock, before this blogger was born, right? My guess is that the Vikings even did the same thing. (Wife carrying, anyone?) Equalism, in contrast to this natural sate of affairs, should hold that until 50% of those shoulder-riders are males on the backs of females, we have not attained freedom, right? But how many modern feminists really long for a little fellow they could carry on their own shoulders?

I've just spent the last half hour looking up wife carrying. Thanks, I think. LOL! ;-)

But this is how I know that there have been women who have competed as the lower half of a wife carrying team. Take this couple from the UK: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-21979926

It's certainly not traditional, but they look as if they had a lot of fun and they didn't try to change the rules in any way to accommodate their "handicap," so why not, aye?

You may also be interested in the Australian invention of "husband dragging." It was inspired by the stereotype of Aussie women having to drag men out of bars. LOL!!!
