Rock Stars From The 1960s And 1970s In Tight Pants, Showing Off Their Bulges

Back in the day, rock stars were demi-gods. Every guy wanted to be one; every girl wanted to be with one. And although fashion was somewhat different back then — and by that, we mean when men were somewhat effeminate and very tight clothing — the spotlight was always on them. Sometimes, quite literally. So, when the world is staring at your crotch, there's only one thing to do; shove some socks down there (unless you're born naturally endowed if you know what I mean). Enjoy these pictures of rockstars from the '60s and '70s wearing extremely tight pants and showing off their extremely large bulges. Whose is natural, and whose is a DIY job? What a fun game to play!

Vintage Pictures Of Men In Short Shorts

Fashion changes over time; this is a universally acknowledged fact. And while some things come back into fashion a decade or two later, some fads are best forgotten and need to be buried deep in the fashion archives. Men's short shorts are one of those things, as proved by these vintage pictures from the 70s. Put the thighs away, gentleman. Thank you very much.

Vintage Ads Which Were Highly Offensive Towards Women

Full gender equality might still not be where it needs to be, but we've certainly come a long way over the past half a century. Travel back just 50 or-so-years-ago, and the world was not an easy place to be a woman. Where assisting men to become great achievers was their highest accolade, women didn't have much hope for being taken seriously. With companies insulting and belittling women as marketing strategies to sell their products, it was indeed a man's world.

These vintage ads give us an idea of just how little empowerment, rights, or power women had back in the day. Check out the horrors below.

What Men Imagined The Women's Suffrage Movement Would Be Like (42 Pics)

Women's suffrage, the legal right of women to vote. Women's suffrage first began in 1848, when a women's rights convention was held in Seneca Falls, New York. 

And from the moment the word spread, the men dramatically feared the worst... stepping into their wives shoes. 

Must have been so awful being a housewife. Considering all the men who created these illustrations displaying their worst nightmare, becoming the housewife themselves. Oh, the absolute horror.

Twitter User Brings Vintage Christmas Stamps Back Into The Limelight

Thank you Twitter user, @RabbitThoughts, for bringing these...interesting stamps back into the limelight. 

We're really torn on how we feel about these vintage Christmas stamps from the 1800s.

On one hand, they're super strange and just the weirdest...

But on the other hand, they're amazing and hilarious and we have this urge to go out into the world and collect these stamps. 

One thing we do know for sure, we're in love with that one abominable snowman/ Snow-covered Cousin It, from the Addams Family.

How do you feel about them?

Housewife Article From 1955 Titled 'The Good Wife’s Guide' Is Embarrassing

"The Good Wife's Guide" was originally published May 13th, 1955, in a magazine called, "Housekeeping Monthly." 

As the title of the article suggests, these 18 bullet points is the guideline on how to be a "good wife." From nonstop house chores to pampering your husband and never ever questioning anything he says and does. 

Really?

This article reminds us of another hilarious article from 1958 on how to find a husband.

Thank goodness times have changed because these 18 bullet points sound unbearable.
