If I’m going to publish something about “Wattle Porn,” which I did on the previous page, I think that I should mention the TV show from several years ago, “Ally McBeal,” which talked about wattles as being sexually interesting for some people.

This is another situation in which I can’t control where the reference is from, or anything that pertains to it, or the fact that the conglomerate is mean and bad and will probably try to make something dirty and stupid out of this page and the previous one.  When the show was contemporary and I was watching it, I couldn’t imagine myself with a wattle.  Now that I’m getting one, I can understand more than I did then that talking about them in a way that wasn’t derogatory was a nice thing for the show to do.  People should not be made to feel bad about getting older, or that they have to take opportunities that they feel aren’t right for them no matter how old they are.
