Tractor porn

Listening to you guys debate the finer points of tractor ownership reminded Uncle B that pictures of these machines were quite popular on the blog back in the day. Before we could move into Badger House in 2008, we had (by law) to put in a fancy computer-controlled septic system. Oh, it’s been a joy, that has.

The septic system saga is here and in the three posts prior. Nobody was much interested in our fancy shit-tank, though, but these here adorable miniature construction vehicles.

You can say what you want about gender being a spectrum, the machinery thing is male, male, male. My little brother went nuts when he saw a lawnmower before he said his first word. Which I think might have been “lawnmower”.

Some years back, an experiment.

They dumped a load of toys on the floor for some baby monkeys. The boy monkeys grabbed all the toy trucks and airplanes, while the girl monkeys picked up the baby dolls.

Obviously, they had been brainwashed with stereotypical gender roles.

True, but we can be delighted at the occasional exception. Where I used to live on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, the most highly regarded and in-demand marine diesel mechanic was an attractive (and indisputably heterosexual) happily married lady with three kids.

And boys play with dolls all the time, but they call them “toy soldiers” or more recently “action figures”.

Weasy – when they did the slab waste water plumbing there were three guys ( I did a double take to make sure) and the 4th was the kind of girl I dreamed about in college.

The sort who could be a lady, but if you broke your leg backpacking could sling you over her shoulder and haul your busted ass back out to civilization, and probably tell you to quit whining like a baby while doing it.

I’ve always fancied Valkyries. 🙂

They were a great crew and a younger unattached durned probably would have tried to find out if the lady plumber was also unattached. Somehow I’m betting dolls weren’t her first toy choice.

@Uncle Al…our local farrier is a woman…she also makes beautiful knives…she won several TV knifemaking comps. You would never know she’s a smithy…but for her guns of steel and strong hands.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
