Closing The Gap
When I began blogging a year ago, I decided that I would never be political.
Not that I don’t have political opinions. Like most people who take an active interest in government, I am very self-righteous and opinionated. (Of course, not as self-righteous as I was in college when I knew everything.)
But Politics can be extremely frustrating. You are either talking to folks who feel the same way you do (so why bother?)or you are talking to people who are Just Plain Wrong – but you will never be able to change their minds.
So I figured it would be a lot more pleasant to talk about silly unimportant things like knee-high pantyhose and self-tanners.
It is time for a Call To Action.
It is time to put a stop to The Big Gap.
You know the one I mean.
Now that I have shed fifteen pounds and fifteen years (yes, with the weight loss, I have decided to be forty-six), I went shopping for new pants. I was hopeful that being a size or two smaller would mean an end to my GAP issues.
It’s still there.
I don’t know why I thought Waist-Gap would disappear now that I’m smaller. I had it when I was younger and thinner too.
Is this just a phenomenon of my phenomenal body?
I believe in scientific research, so I went to that microcosm of human bodies – the local country fair.
And there it was. If you are a woman older than … um … four – you’ve got a Gap. There are skinny girls in skinny pants with a Gap. There are chubby ladies with muffins tops – and a Gap. There are women cinching their Gap with a belt, giving their pants a weird gathered look in the back. And there are teenagers who appear to be using their Gap as a nifty slot for their iphone.
The GAP is universal.
And it’s time to end it!
Let’s close the Gap.
Women are NOT built with a gap. So why are pants designed that way?
So I am going to ORGANIZE!
This is the kind of activism I was born for – Fashion Activist.
I am going to use all my “clicks” on this blog as signatures on my
Petition To End The Gap.
And I will forward it to retail and ready-to-wear clothing designers everywhere.
Are you with me?
Women of the world – Unite!
Demand a little tuck at the top of your tuche!
