Butts have become big business and much more emphasis is being placed on them since the early 90’s when Sir Mix A Lot released ‘Baby Got Back’.
Today it’s no secret that butt injections have become commonplace not only for strippers and celebrities but for women in general who are unhappy with their figure.
Television shows like ‘Botched’ or ‘My Strange Addiction’ are just a few examples of shows that highlight the fact that some women are willing to go to great lengths to attain a look that they don’t have naturally. It can be dangerous health wise but also generally indicates that there are other issues present such as BDD, Body Dysmorphic Disorder quite possibly, which I don’t think I have…
However, I’m a 40-year-old African American woman (that looks 28 I might add) with hips and ass! I am grateful to both of my children for my ASSets because before them I was pretty thin and underdeveloped in these areas. After having my last child I was graced with a very voluptuous figure. So you might ASSk, what does this do for you? Only skinny bitches would wonder….
Well, I came to find out that it does a lot for my self-esteem and self-confidence. My hips and butt are such a big part of who I am, (no pun intended), and how I present myself to the world that I don’t know what I would do without them. But I found out about three years ago when I became ill from stress and just going through BS in life and lost 55 pounds. I transformed into this person who was totally foreign to me and the people in my life. My butt was completely deflated and flat and I was devastated!! I became a skinny bitch!
My friends cringed when they saw me and no longer was I coveted by men or complimented by other women even. I was INVISIBLE, or at least that’s how I felt. On a scale from 1-10 I would say I’m an 8 in the face. I have big brown eyes and a beautiful smile I’ve been told, but none of this mattered to me or the rest of the world when I lost my hips and butt. After the drastic weight loss and the mild depression I went through as a result of garnering zero attention from men as a single woman, I struck out on a mission to gain my weight back. Once I did I breathed a huge sigh of relief but I was also saddened that my hips and butt seemed to be the only thing that mattered to men. I didn’t get second looks or grimy smiles, which used to annoy me to no end until they were no longer, a part of my daily routine in life.
My butt is a part of me that truly plays a large role in my status as a woman. When I see women with flat butts I feel sorry for them and I personally wonder how women that don’t have hips and large butts are getting through this life, which may sound ridiculous but it’s the truth. However, lately I seem to come across more skinny bitches wearing huge wedding rings and I can’t help butt wonder, where’s mine? Are big butts getting in the way of finding true love?
