Marge Simpson should not pose for Playboy

Updated on August 30, 2017

My opinion

Marge Simpson should not pose for Playboy!

What on earth was she thinking? What kind of an example is this to give women of her generation? Forget the young women, they don't hold Marge in the same esteem as we women of slightly more maturity do.

Just when we began to feel comfortable in our flat-heeled shoes, loose, flowing blouses and elasticised waists, we are confronted by one of our own posing for racy photographs. Solidarity is cast aside and all concept of Sisterhood cops a mighty smack in the face.

Where's your pride in your vintage womanhood, Marge?

Marge, you let the side down!

I say that Marge should NOT pose for Playboy. Am I right?

I admit to bias on this vexatious issue but, if you can give me a good argument why Marge should be allowed to pose, I'm willing to take it on board.

Marge Simpson should NOT pose for Playboy

Marge, resign from the Red Hatters!

You have lost your credibility

Marge is a Red Hatter for heavens sake!

Apart from the requirement of being fifty years old to even join a Red Hat group, a woman has to show a least a little decorum.

The Red Hatters may be guilty of boisterous giggling on those inauspicious occasions when we partake of that one glass of bubbly too many, but you won't see us dancing on the tabletop and flinging our support panties at the crowd.

What's your take?

What should Marge do now?

      Marge has a right to pose and she shouldn't have to explain herself. See you around the galaxy...

      Sensational... isn't it great to have fun with our differences through the vehicle of a cartoon character?

      I was mildly amused but I suspect this lens may have only been meant for the girls.

      Hm, I wonder if there's a way to see the spread without buying the magazine. I wasn't at the grocery store checkout line today, so that option is out. And my husband is asking, since her head of hair is blue, is .... well, never mind.

      Very funny! Will add it to the Hairy Men are Gorgeoust debate! I think it goes well with Marge Simpson and Playboy - oh... Burt Reynolds in Playboy! Or was it Playgirl? Or Cosmo? Remember what controversy that caused. I digress.

      Maybe this is what the TV series needed to rejuvenate the show and create some interest-- I think ratings and the show quality have been declining over the past few years. Nice work, blessed!

      I think her posing for playboy is a bit silly? Are men really that hard up to see a naked woman that they would look at a naked cartoon of one?
