TKC QUESTION TONIGHT: KANSAS CITY HARD NEWS OR MSM SLUT-SHAMING?!?!
These two Kansas City area young women have been put on blast across the local Internets thanks to Westside restaurant surveillance cam footage of their drinking and dancing in the midst of an ALLEGED hit & run.
Police put out a more toned down version of the photo of the sexy pair earlier along with a lot of other mostly ignored public service content . . .
@KCPolice: Updated pic of 2 suspects who hit @PonaksKitchen building July 1 and fled. If you recognize them, call 816-474-TIPS
However, today this hottie image of "party girls" has set local social media and newscasts into a flame war.
A question . . .
IS THIS SEXY KANSAS CITY SUSPECT SEARCH JUSTIFIED OR IS IT JUST A BIT OF LOCAL SLUT-SHAMING?!?!
Let's define terms:
"In human sexuality, slut-shaming is a form of social stigma applied to people, especially women and girls, who are perceived to violate traditional expectations for sexual behaviors."
One young woman is tattooed, the other is drinking and wagging her tongue . . . They're scantily but fully clothed grown women having a good time until a suspected hit & run. Let's be real: The provocative picture is what plays to so much media interest and we've posted it here simply for educational purposes, to help police and provide context for our critical disucssion.
And despite a record breaking murder spree during bloody Summer 2017, like it or not, this is the most popular alleged criminal investigation in Kansas City.
You decide . . .
