Enough with the sword fights already! Typically I try to leave my detachable penis at the office but it doesn’t always work out as intended. The more I work in a predominantly male industry the more I find the need for it to remain attached. Even in the testosterone filled dog house which I reside, I have found it’s useful more often than not! What the hell is wrong with some men? Why is it that some of them suffer from an extreme case of asshole with a slight inferiority complex? Ironically they all say they love an assertive aggressive woman driven by her persistent need to succeed. They want to work with her, play house with her, marry her. They think she is fantastic, charming and charismatic! They are drawn to the sassy powerhouse, and love to watch her in action.
Yeah right! That’s what they all say until that assertive woman straps on her detachable manhood when the asshole tries to run her over, take advantage of her femininity, feelings or at times even break her heart. No one likes to be taken down a few notches, especially a man with a slightly flawed personality carrying a little too much ego. I understand that fifty years ago things were a little different but, in 2012 most woman with any dignity and self respect are going to stand up and protect themselves rather than get snowballed or railroaded by some asshole! The way I see it, an ace is an ace, and a spade is a spade. So if you feel the need to play asshole you better be man enough to sword fight with a p owerful chick! Don’t get me wrong or misunderstand this message. I believe that a woman does at times need to shut the hell up! It is not always an easy task yet, for the right person, in the right situation it is easily achieved. However, when push comes to shove, in any situation, THIS woman is going to strap on the fruit and berries before ramming it right in your face. Last I checked it was 1963 when the Federal Government amended the Equal Rights Act and if any man thinks it is okay to treat this gal like crap or behave inappropriately, he better be prepared to get an invitation to her manhood she likes to call E.R.A., the Equal Rights Asshole! Strapped and ready to MOVE and FLEX her right to tell you to f-off! (In a gracious diplomatic way of course) It is never a good day when woman has to act like a man. It isn’t attractive, and if men could learn just one 12 bikes & beauties •march 2012
little lesson. It is NOT necessary to try and “one up” a woman, personally professionally, truly a fruitless effort! We have no room in our life for any man who looks at us as some game of who’s on top! Isn’t it enough you already have a permanent “one up”? You hold the package we can’t live without. You get to dominate us in more ways than one. You dominate us in the workplace, you dominate us in the bedroom; you dominate us in all levels of fitness and even dominate us in a plethora of other statistics. Why isn’t that enough? We see you’re dominant! So why for some of you, when faced with a assertive aggressive woman, do you find it necessary to degrade us, disrespect us and completely treat us like some trash to feed your need to come out of the cock fight a winner? It all ends back at the age old question; Do men respect powerful women, can they? Will it ever be possible for a woman to be loved, respected and cherished for all her assets, even those you feel intimidated by? You know that saying about getting the government you deserve? Totally applies, to most situations, in any form of a relationship, business or personal, when it comes down to it, it doesn’t matter! Just leave the cock out of it!
“I don’t mind living in a man’s world as long as I can be a woman in it.” -Marilyn Monroe

My name is Jeffrey and I wrote a column for this magazine for nearly two years under the name Asshole Jeff. It has come to my attention that some people may have been offended by things I’ve written in the past and a few have even complained.
For them I can only say, get over yourself. It makes me feel better about myself and it gives some people a reason to chuckle. I mean no harm and treat everyone the same, so if you find yourself angry about anything I write or it hits to close to home, just remember this is humor with a bit of real world commentary and if you are still angry, send your grievances to me at jhoee1@ aol.com. I’m always looking for another dumbass to write about next month. So let’s move on to the column….. Every once in a while something comes out on the news that just leaves me staring at my computer, shaking my head wondering how our Country is ever going to get its Politically Correct head out of its ass and the only answer I ever come up with is the unadulterated slaughter of every single person in California. That is where a majority of the p.c. kings come from or should I call them queens? You know, I have no idea what I am allowed to call them anymore. We have a lot of problems in this country and unless people are allowed to discuss them openly without some nutwad throwing some discrimination bullshit your way just because you don’t agree with them. We need to fix Medicare and Social Security means you hate old people, need to reform welfare-you’re a racist, and so on. Yet are we doing anything about these problems, nope. We are spending time and money on transgender discrimination in schools and who is leading the way? Good old California! These brownie muskets now have regulations on what is considered discrimination towards gender-nonconforming students. So their state is in financial ruin and they have one of the worst education problems in the country with a graduation rate of 67% and what are these geniuses pondering, the psychological effects of using improper pronouns on a gender-nonconforming student. Is calling Bobby, Bobby really the problem?
I really think the psychological problems would stem from coming to school dressed in a mini and thigh high stockings when you have a cock!!!
This shit is just unbelievable to me. Under their lovely new rules and I quote, “The student’s self-identification is the sole measure of the student’s gender regardless of www.bikesbeauties.com
the student’s sex assigned at birth.” What? They also say as far as restrooms go that students can use any restroom that corresponds with their gender self identity unless the schools install gender neutral bathrooms because, “in the past most school structures reinforced the myth of two genders, male and female.” Did I miss something, when exactly did this become a myth? On the up side, all a strapping young heterosexual male student has to do is say that he self identify himself as a girl and he has free access to the girls locker room and showers and the school can’t do anything about it. Look, I have no problems with gay people or anyone else but I just think there are more important things to worry about and we should not constantly be trying to cuddle every little group there is. My biggest problem with this is not little jimmy in his sundress with fashionable yet practical pumps but this self-identity bullshit. Yet anyone who disagrees with them is discriminating. I just don’t get how having boys and girls bathrooms is discrimination. Next are they going to tell you that you have special bathrooms in your business also, that you can’t have male employees or female employees dress a certain way? That is exactly what is going to happen because that is what they always do and if they can’t get it through on a discrimination basis they will find another angle to shove it down your throat. In San Francisco they are already leading that charge saying now that it is a public safety and health issue. According to the San Frazncisco Human Rights Commission, the lack of restroom access to gender –nonconforming people often results in severe bladder damage and kidney problems.
After all, they noted that numerous people made those claims on their 2010 bathroom survey. What kind of fucking city has a bathroom survey??? I really think I need to go to California find a bunch of these turtle-throwers that came up with this shit and Bitch slap them. Then I’m off to the local community college to visit the girl’s swim team showers.
Deepest Regards, Asshole Jeff

spent the entire month raising a ruckus and creating as much gossip as possible to bring you all of Florida’s monthly motorcycle action. We start things off with some good will at the Shiner’s event. You can see our coverage on Page 37. Then we loaded the saddlebags and rode south to Peterson’s Harley-Davidson for the Third Thursday Bike Night & Food Truck Invasion. We rolled in to find our old friend Letterfly Dave painting his VW and a few other things while in their lot, see the photos on Page 38. Some of us didn’t have a sweetie to love on for Valentine’s Day, so we took a ride over to Bokamper’s for their big Second Tuesday Bike Night. The swine was fine and so were the roses, take a look at our images on Page 39. Now, I have to be honest, the next event rocked our socks off, we rode down to Miami to Tropical Park just off of Bird Rd for the weekly Food Truck Invasion, where 20 trucks line up for your eating pleasure, see the images on Page 40. There is a new bike night in Davie, FL where you can see familiar faces in a whole new venue. Check out the Poolhouse Grill on Page 45. Last but not least, Bikes & Beauties Magazine celebrated another successful year at the Anniversary Party held at Café 27. See all you missed on Page 42.

I woke up this morning singing the Beatles, if I didn’t know better I would think there were needles coming through the balls of my feet, my ears are ringing and I have a quarter stuck to my left boob. Hell yeah!! You know what that means! That was one hell of a freaking party! Thursday, February 23, 2012 we packed into Café 27 located on US Highway 27 just North of Griffin Road in Weston, FL to celebrate our 3rd Anniversary! The party was hoping before we even opened the gates as fans began to lined up to get in early on all the action. Guests were greeted by Twisted Tea’s beautiful ladies, giving away free samples of the best new beverage to hit the market in nearly five years. It’s light, refreshing and contains alcohol, I think some of the ladies were in love! Moving around the pavers guests were entertained by artist Marcio Karam as he painted some of our beautiful ladies. As always, Bikes & Beauties Magazine laid out a phenomenal spread of grub. Looking like a small heard of swine, we watched as Armando Lopez and his crew chopped and served a mountain of fresh roasted pig, coleslaw, potato salad, baked beans, corn on the cob and creamed spinach. My mouth is still watering just thinking about how fantastic the food was! Yum!!! We rocked and rolled until we all reached a buzz. That’s right about when then the real shenanigans began. One after the other our favorite fans pilled in, filing the Café to capacity. Truly an amazing site for a Thursday night!
