Pretty sure all you ladies have noticed it’s slim pickings in all things once you hit menopause. Nothing is really for us… not the latest Netflix series, nor the current fashion, not the dollars put toward medical research and certainly not the men. There aren’t even any songs with inspiring lyrics for us older ladies. Sad. Unfair. Stupid.

Hello world! There are 73 million of us older women, just in the U.S. And many of us are looking at decades of being locked in this cultural gulag. Are we pissed about that?! You bet. You could be making money off our fears and hopes (as you do for everyone else), but instead, you’ve chosen to IGNORE US. Your loss.

So yes, I think all you ladies should feel quite entitled in saying “fuck you,” loudly and often… at the grocery store, the DMV, at holiday gatherings, church, after unfulfilling sex with “Roger” AND when you are five minutes late for your colonoscopy and have to reschedule after fasting for three days and drinking four gallons of Satan’s “lemonade” in one hour. Let it fucking rip!

A hard “no” on picking up this guy. Don’t even think about it!

If you can’t speak your mind, you’re going to have to double up on your blood pressure medication. And if you can’t have a good laugh, you’re looking at having to quadruple the dosage. That’s a scientific fact. Profanity + laughter = lower blood pressure.

A subscription to “Men On Pause” will ensure that on a weekly basis, you have a safe place to belly laugh without Spanx (or Poise, lol) and you’ll get a fresh perspective on issues important to older women from voices no longer clouded by hormones.

Your subscription will also ensure you’re not a late arrival to the bitch-fest in the comments section. It’s not healthy to go a whole week holding in all that vitriol.

SUBSCRIBE and don’t miss out on the fun!

Perhaps dig into that pineapple upside-down cake with a bit of caution 😬

MOP is for women who lived through the sexual revolution and the women's rights movement but whose menfolk peacefully slept through both.
