Genderically modified body parts

The word "moobs" usually makes me smile - it's a satisfactorily mean derogatory term used about men. I like it, because it brings to mind dumb bovines ("moobs" - get it?) - which is what I automatically visualise when women are insultingly called "cows" (Moo... milk... meat...).

I HATE it when men refer to women as "cows" ... as if the purpose of women's existence is to have boobs - albeit only two - produce milk and be stupidly bovine! (I especially hate it being used by women referring to other women, but that isn't particularly relevant here.) So now there's an insult for men that seems just as nasty.

Anyhow - "moobs" equating with "boobs", okay. But when I came across the word "daddaries", put forward as a more dignified, possibly even elegant, alternative to "moobs" (in the comments), my funny bone - which leads an invisible but fulfillingly stimulating figurative life somewhere inside me - was well and truly tickled. It's just so silly...

Daddaries... **giggle**
