Take It On The Other Side

A little while ago I was watching that old 80's movie "Flash Gordon" with my kids. I thought it was funny AND disturbing that my daughter became more fascinated with the princess daughter of the evil Ming The Merciless who is very well defined as the slut of the movie even more than she cared about the main characters of the film.

When the slut wasn't in the scene, my daughter would constantly ask, "Where is that other girl? What's that other girl doing? Why don't they show her?"

And if I had to venture a guess as to what the slut was doing when she wasn't on camera, I would guess she must be... shopping for fabulous outfits?

I believe that this was actually the next scene with the slut after my daughter requested her presence:

If you ask most guys, there are likely to tell you that it is a no-brainer that slutty girls are vastly more interesting than conservative girls. It's a fast and easy answer but I don't think it's true. I think a girl needs to be MORE than just skanky to be interesting and fun to be around.

If the show "Elimidate" has taught us anything (which it probably hasn't), it's that the slutty girl rarely wins in the end.

So there is more to the evil princess than revealing clothing. In fact, if it wasn't for her than Flash Gordon would have been dead within the first 20 minutes of the movie. Thanks to her insatiable appettite for blonde meatheads, he saved every one of us!

I don't know what to tell my daughter about the evil princess. She's actually one of the good guys in the end.

Blondes don't ALWAYS have more fun.

Funny, that looks like the same thing I'd be doing with the skank from Flash Gordon.
