Shown on female mannequins, but with male skeletal structures! You’d think their readers would be savvy enough to demand both sexes of apron.
“I’m not saying she isn’t a good cook, but… “
It wouldn’t be green, though.
Hmm. Illustration taken from an old textbook, quite nice. Now, how about some real dissection scenes on the front of these things? Dexter things up a little!
How do you tell that it’s male from a photo?
You can tell by the shape of the pelvis: the female pelvis is lower and broader. The ones in the aprons look too high and narrow for a woman (unless it’s a matter of orientation in the drawing, but it still looks masculine).
Eat! Eat! You’re skin and bones.
Send this to any Italian mother you know. And Jewish mothers too. And……. oh let’s face it, get one for your Mom.
Diana Kreider, if that was for me, I didn’t mean photos, I meant drawings. Have a look at Grey’s Anatomy (the book is much better than the TV series) and you’ll see what I mean.
And Calimacita is right, once you’ve seen a male and female skeleton together, it’s obvious.
And, I’m just being picky here, Imagine if it was enlarged 10% so the clavicles weren’t even in the picture, ribs matched, thighs and legs. Then, put a little cthulhu where the heart should be……
OK, I’ll stop now. Off to buy a Dexter shower curtain and bathmat…..
Never trust a skinny cook.
Where can I buy these? They are so perfectly necessary, and I must have one! D:
Own the green one, <3 it!
TIL women have their shoulders at breast height.
