Beloved reader Noy B posted a comment about the 4″ Stewies asking why –and I’m paraphrasing here– in the name of all that is holy (meaning both gin AND tonic) would someone who is already tall want to put on four inch heels and be even taller.
Because my beloved powderpuff, if we have learned nothing from “To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Love Julie Newmar” it is that larger than life is just the right size and being tall, not to put too fine a point on it, kicks ass.
This isn’t saying our short sisters don’t practice their own adorable brand of buttkickery, but just like I’ll never know what it’s like to be cute and petite, they will never know what it’s like to walk into a room as a six-foot-three glamazon goddess knowing, wearing four inch heels and working a warrior necklace that would snap a weaker girl’s spine, knowing, just knowing you are serving it hotter and fiercer than any precious little pocket pet ever could. You’re on a different scale than the people around you. You are bigger, better, brighter. You are a superlative. That’s not just confidence, or sex-appeal, or beauty…that’s power. It’s yours, tall girls, so take it.
