Where are the female Mafia bosses? There are female police commissioners, female sheriffs, female FBI agents but no female Mafia bosses.

I imagine that most women would not want this job, but I guarantee that there are a few criminal-minded sociopathic women out there with ambitions for the job. The ironic thing is that the female Mafiosi would still confront the same equality problems that all women face. It is well established that a woman must have far better skills and be more accomplished than her male colleagues to succeed in male dominated jobs. A female Mafioso criminal mastermind would have to be smarter, meaner, wickeder, and bloodthirstier than her colleagues. Surely, such women already exist but we just have not yet heard of them.

It may well be that she is so clever that she has not yet been noticed by the police. After all, one of the skills of a criminal mastermind is to avoid getting caught and sent to prison. So the police do not know that she exists and that she is out there running the Mafia. Maybe she has to hide her identity from her male Mafiosi underlings. Let's face it, macho Mafiosi do not think kindly of taking orders from a woman. The male Mafiosi probably see her all the time and talk to her all time but have no idea that she is their boss.

If the police experts, not to mention her own Mafiosi underlings, do not recognize her, then we, the public, would be clueless. After all, we do rely on the police for this sort of thing. This female Mafioso could be a well known person, perhaps a person we would often see on TV, but none of us would know her true identity. Nothing like hiding in plain sight.

Constantly referring to the female mafioso boss as the female this or the female that, is awkward. We need a proper title to match. It is easy to use "The Godmother" instead of “The Godfather” but what is the female equivalent of “The Don”? Possibly, “The Donna”? Not bad, certainly feminized. How about the more regal, “Madonna”?

Just a minute, isn't there an Italian woman from New York City who already uses that name? Do you suppose...

A Subway Journey Home

by The Urban Blabbermouth. Comments are welcome! ~ There is a ritual to theNew York City subway system. Once there, you lose your humanity.  You are transformed into a savage, brutal and selfish automaton.  Savage in that you push and shove other riders out of your way to get into the subway car.  Brutal in that you never excuse yourself for any atrocities that you commit to get in the subway car.  Selfish in that you never give up your seat to anyone, no matter how crippled or old or pregnant they are.  Automaton in that you never look at any one else as a human being.

Now there are certain strategies that you can employ to be a successful subway rider.  You can stand by the door and obstruct the way just to be selfish and ornery.  That strategy is designed to increase your standing with your fellow passengers by impressing them with how vicious you can be pushing back at people trying to push into the car.  Whenever I see this strategy employed, I immediately piggy back on it.  I move …

Gone Shopping

Dracula escorted his newly created undead aide into the store.

"...and you need to sleep in the daytime," he explained.

"But what are we doing here in Sleepy's Mattress store?" asked his aide. "I thought we slept in coffins."

"We are modern now," replied Dracula. "We use a mattress like anyone else. I tell you, after two hundred years of sleeping on rock and dirt, this is a joy. So much more comfortable and you don't have to haul it around from place to place."

"Amazing," said the aide.

"For a newbie like you, maybe you want to go traditional. Sleepy's has a Posturedic that will fit inside a coffin."

"What do you use?" asked the aide.

"I have a sleep-number bed. I love it. Mrs. Dracula can toss and turn and I don't feel it on my side."

"Now that you mention the ladies, I think I will skip the coffin. A moo…

Girl Fantasy

I am binge watching Lost Girl on Netflix.  It's a fantasy television show where the main character is a succubus.  A succubus is a demon who feeds on sexual energy.  You can imagine, with a premise like that, why this show was on TV for five years or so.  It's a light show, not much heavy drama or violence, but then I have only watched three episodes.

There are issues with Lost Girl.   Let's start with the obvious.  The succubus is a woman, not a man.  If the demon were a man, we would be uninterested in the show.  As we all know, men have that famous second brain that controls them.  It's just men being men to like, want, and actively pursue sex.  That's boring. 

There is a another reason that the succubus is a woman.  This implies that women who like, want, and actively pursues sex can only be demons.   I've got news for you, women have that second brain too.  It's just tiny compared to men's.  Maybe that's why …
