Skanky Chicks Can't Taint Real Cowgirls

A real cowgirl's image can't be tainted by skanky girls in daisy dukes and boots.

FORT WORTH, Texas (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Daisy Dukes and cowboy boots don’t make the cowgirl.

The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame in Fort Worth, Texas, pays homage to the gals who’ve made a mark on the American West including gunslinger Annie Oakley and Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.

Executive Director Pat Riley says a true cowgirl can be a rancher, rodeo performer, or someone who exemplifies the lifestyle, like artist Georgia O’Keeffe who would camp in the wild for weeks at a time painting the scenery.

They are not, however, women in sexy cowgirl get-ups looking to catch a man’s eye with their teeny denim shorts and bare midriff.

Luckily, Riley believes that those who sexualize the cowgirl don’t give true steer-loving ladies a bad name.

She says, “The image of the cowgirl is so strong. Once people get the opportunity to be introduced to a real cowgirl and recognize their importance, it overrides the stereotype.”
