DEAD-TREE DISGUST: KANSAS CITY STAR COLUMNIST HOOPZ CELEBRATES SOCIAL MEDIA MENSTRUAL BLOOD!!!
Here's a look at a struggling Kansas City print media institution featuring a bit of gore and social media controversy in order to boost numbers.
Their most controversial columnist authors the visceral display . . .
Jeneé Osterheldt Meet Rupi Kaur, the Indian rock star poet who’s sold out her Kauffman Center show
Hoopz: "Lying on her side in her bed, the photograph shows blood seeping through the backside of her gray sweatpants. A bit of blood also stains the sheets.
"It’s happened to most women and girls. A period, or shedding of the uterus lining, is natural. We see commercials for tampons, maxi pads and cramp relief every day. We see blood on movies and TV every day.
"But menstruation is still taboo."
As of this writing, the controversial photo is EMBEDDED into the Star's website.
And here's a question for our late night readers who bark at the moon amid the Halloween scary season . . .
WHO WOULD PAY TO READ THIS SCREED IN PRAISE OF MENSTRUAL BLOOD??? IS THE KANSAS CITY STAR SACRIFICING THEIR DIGNITY IN FEATURING THIS BLOODY HOT MESS???
Thanks to the best and brightest denizens of our blog community for sending this one our way . . . The reality is that I just want to bookmark this horrific note the next time somebody complains about our blog communities love of scantily clad curvaceous women making big bucks for their natural or beautifully enhanced talents.
You decide . . .
