Opinion: Why Do Women Get So Upset When Told They Have a Nice Rack?

As one who regularly likes to pay women compliments on their racks, this makes no sense to me. Has ‘rack’ somehow become a derogatory term? Tell that to the elks who have racks of antlers on their heads. Tell that to the pool players who regularly rack ’em up. And […]
