Chicks Are Complicated

The title comes from a quote by Julie Foudy in an article titled, 'U.S. Goalkeeper Made Quite a Comeback of Her Own' published in the NY Times, July 12, 2011.
“Men are definitely different in that regard,” said Julie Foudy, a former captain of the American team. “Men can say whatever, and go and have a beer afterward. Chicks are complicated..."
While reading an article in the NY Times, 'Daytime Show About Women Isn’t Soap Opera', I came across this:
"Women’s soccer doesn’t always get this kind of respect, even in countries where the sport is revered. To boost male interest in their team, three of the French team players posed nude for a German newspaper this month. The players, arms strategically draped to conceal their nipples, were photographed over the tagline, “Is this how we should show up before you come to our games?"
The British announcer o the World Cup matches mentioned this, saying the publicity had caused ratings or the rench women's team to increase dramatically.
Hmmmm...That made me think of the famous picture of the artist, Marcel Duchamp, playing chess against a nude female opponent. Then a light bulb went off in the BaconHead. Why not publicize women's chess in the US by having the girls play nude? Then there would be four boobies in the picture in lieu of only two as in the Duchamp picture. Dueling boobies!Imagine beautiful nude female chessplayers walking around on camera at the St Louis Chess and Scholastic Center for everyone to behold all over the world! I'm willing to wager a spectacle like that would at least double the adult male membership of USCF! For if women are 'complicated', because no man can ever know what a woman is thinking when she looks at a man, it is well known that every heterosexual man is simple in that when a man looks at a woman, he simply sees her nude, no matter how much she is wearing!
