Walking down to the Sprint Center over the weekend I noticed two things.
Propaganda regarding NCAA Tournament attendance was mostly a lie. I don't know how many people visited the P&L District over the weekend but the few I witnessed were just white dudes wearing sports clothing and nursing beers or just standing around. Commerce wasn't in the air and people weren't buying many of the $9 beverages that were supposed to save Kansas City. In fact, it seemed like nothing more than a bunch of college sports fans standing around. Remember that this same event-based strategy failed to create a "Renaissance" near Kemper Arena - And that place actually has parking.
Featured in the photo above: A WHITE WOMAN WITH THE BIGGEST, NICEST ASS I'VE EVER SEEN!!!
Kudos to this lady, who I think is from outta town, for not only accentuating her best feature, turning heads and possibly causing a couple of car crashes but also for walking half a mile in high heels through downtown Kansas City.
I've blocked out even a hint of this woman's face but I'm using the photo and recalling the story in order to demonstrate that body image issues facing young ladies and exacerbated by women's magazines (and this blog) should be challenged given that this big-assed woman turned nearly every head in downtown as she walked by but she probably doesn't conform to "conventional" magazine cover model standards.
Yes, I guess her shoe selection doesn't really fall into line with feminist ideals . . . Still, I contend that while bunions and deformed, pronated feet are a high cost to pay for looking good in jeans that didn't really seem to fit . . . This woman made Kansas City beautiful for a day with her sacrifice.
