Or isn't the purpose of the Shrine to promote female listenership, as Ian says?


Such confusion about the Shrine when there is a FAQ sitting right here in this forum!

The purpose of the Shrine is twofold:

1. To draw traffic to the website.
2. To prove that women listen.

Manwich originated the "it's not a beauty contest" line, and I think it's a good line because it encourages the less-than-beautiful to submit their pictures as well.

The fact is most members of the Shrine are quite attractive.  Either younger libertarian females are more attractive than other ladies, or thus far only the attractive ladies have bothered to sign up.

Interesting observation.

Yeah but I think the original post was citing the "encourages, etc." fact as possibly being an implied insult to some people who are obviously entirely too sensitive to exist.

Take another good look...not everyone on there is attractive.  And no, for those of who you think this is a self-pity party, I'm talking about OTHER people being ugly.

If only I had the stomach to keep your sexual solicitations recorded somehow.   :?

Well, I would if I had one, I suppose.  I'm still accepting creative ideas for validation, if anyone wants to help.   :lol:

decorate a cake with FTL

I like that one. :D

I want to know why female callers get to be on the air before men. A person with something interesting to say should be first.
