She passed in late Dec.2009, but her students have enthusiastically continued with the organization.
The purpose of the organization is to reach out to women and give its members an opportunity to speak their minds on subjects pertaining to all kinds of women, not just African American women.
If you look at the ratings on UD, the gay definition has 432 thumbs up and 129 down, while the "young man who likes older women" definition has 8 thumbs up and 17 down. I'm 22, my lady will be 29 in a few days, I was 21 when we started dating.
I typically prefer women who are in this range (27-30).
But I really want to know at what age does the "Cougar" who desires/dates younger men become a "Coyote"? Switch around the Anna Nicole Smith and her late husband.
Wouldnt it be just flat out creepy if a 80-90 year old woman was married or dating a 20 something year old man?
But the “cougar” designation funnels into a bigger point about the fact that we don’t really have widely-used terms for men in general that apply to their state-in-life or sexual desire. But for women, we have a whole vocabulary of insults and labels like: “trophy wife” (a young, attractive woman who is married to an older, usually wealthy man); “MILF” (“Mother I’d Like To Fuck” — lovely); and the ever present “Gold Digger.”You may ask, what about the term “sugar daddy?

Calling a woman a cougar is neither progressive nor supportive. I also think it’s important to mention that “cougar” carries a connotation of predatory behavior.However, I’m not supporting the term on a broader level). As if, A) the woman could only get the younger man by chasing after him like a rabid animal and B) the woman’s personality has no part in the relationship, that the guy she’s dating must only be with her so he can have wild, crazy sex or because she’s rich.I remember my first real exposure to seeing a woman referred to as a “cougar.” It happened when Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher went public with their relationship. We don’t commonly refer to a man over 40 who sleeps with younger women as a “tiger,” “lion,” or any equivalent animal reference. When an unnecessary disparity exists in language that’s sexist, that’s when misogyny creeps in and spreads like a virus, compounding the damage already done.Gossip magazines and talk shows were breathless with excitement about the pairing, and you couldn’t go anywhere without seeing some magazine or TV show dubbing Moore as a cougar.(For those of you who don’t know, a “cougar” is slang for a woman who is over 40 and dates or sleeps with younger men. Moreover, women aren’t animals and should never be referred to as such in a wholesale manner without their consent.
