The Chinese New Year calendar says it’s the year of the horse, but I’ve decided to shake shit up and make it The Year of the Fat Bottom Girl. Because I can.
Have you ever noticed the sub-title of my blog? “It’s not about the ass, it’s about the attitude”? That’s not entirely true. It’s kind of about the ass. Many of you have probably wondered about the size of my ass. Or possibly you have speculated aloud, some even telling me that they believed my ass wasn’t really that big, even though I call myself the Fat Bottom Girl. But here’s the deal–baby got back. I got a little junk in my trunk. I’m packing a little meat in my seat. That’s right, this ass be bootylicious.
To get slightly serious for a moment, as I begin 2014, I am on a quest to be more accepting of my body. To be kinder to myself when I look in the mirror, and I want the rest of my fat bottom girl crew to come along on this quest with me. It’s time to embrace the skin you’re in! It’s time to be okay with having a juicy booty! (That does not mean run out and buy sweatpants with “juicy” monogrammed across the ass! That shit is just plain tacky!)
My goal is to be able to look at my ass in the mirror, and have the first thing that runs across my mind be, “Damn girl, you don’t just have a can, you got a can-can”, or, “The bigger the cushion, the sweeter the pushin'”, instead of looking at it in disgust and comparing myself to some composite woman in my mind who has been pieced together through advertisements and tapes of old boyfriends telling me what I am lacking.
Ladies, it’s time to embrace your fat bottoms! Gentlemen, if you’re like Sir Mix-A-Lot and like your woman with some curves, let it be known! Give her a smack on that ass every once in awhile, and tell her you love her each week day, each velvety cheek day.
This Fat Bottom Girl is going to make sure 2014 is a great year, and to kick it off right, I’ve put together a video list – “Ode to Fat Bottoms”. So get up, shake that healthy butt, and enjoy!
