My guess is ..."Rich."
I say the female-hating creature that came up with that title should have taken another look at the animal kingdom for something more appropriate to address the situation...like perhaps a "Seeing Eye Dog."
But back to "Cougar."
Cougars are carnivores, man-eaters, predators..or as Wikipedia says, "capable stalk and ambush predators who pursue a wide variety of prey."
Hmmmmm....I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer but the use of Cougar in this context implies that a woman's motivation in dating a man junior to her in years can only be looking to swallow him alive. And I suppose older men with young chippees are taking care of them, acting as father figures...yeah right!
Read the papers, look at magazines. I wrote that 40 is the new 30...turns out more impressive writers than me are alleging that 40 is the new 20! Valerie Bertinelli on the cover of People at 48 in a bikini, Halle Berry at 42, Esquire's sexiest women alive...
We ain't our mother's 40....so why should we date men who are their father's 40?
Cougars? I think not.
Now a seeing eye dog....this title works...an animal that guides a blind
person to safety, helps them avoid obstacles, teaches a man how to please a woman (okay maybe this one doesn't fit with the dog thing)... this is the role we older women can play for younger men.
