A Treasury of Dutch Illustrations About Constipated Women
I also stumbled upon these illustrations, apparently from Holland, of constipated women. What more can I say except "Enjoy!"
It's unclear if this is woman is actually constipated, or if her butt is stuck inside her chamberpot.
The Dutch caption for this illustration: "Constipatie tijdens de zwangerschap ga altijd naar de dokter als constipatie heeft tijdens de zwangerschap." The English translation on the website: "Constipation if you are pregnant." I'm guessing something was lost in translation.
Apparently, this is a housewife with constipation. A triumphantly constipated housewife, from the looks of it.
This, in contrast, is a "young woman" with constipation. You can tell she's young by her serene look, which conveys her naive belief that her bowels aren't constipated, merely lazy.
This poor woman is either constipated or questioning why she let her unemployed "musician" boyfriend move in without asking him to pay rent. Or both.
This is a Glamour "Don't!"
