Fat-bottomed girls you make the rockin' world go 'round!

Steph and I were watching some Fox Christmas music special tonight and she asked me if bootylicious girls were coming back into style in favor of twigs. I think the answer is yes.

I should be clear to include girls with wide hips or who are otherwise generally curvy in some fashion. We seemed to go through a phase where movie stars and models all had the body of 9-year old boys. No hips or butt. While you always read about how this was creating poor body image for young girls, I think most dudes were like, "Uh, that's not attractive."

Because the truth is, I think dudes go more for girls with butts that stick out, hips that are wider than their shoulders, and a little bit of a pouch in the front is all good too. So when you see a TV show like that where Beyonce and Kelly Clarkson get up there and show their stuff, it's a good thing. Show off your curvy parts, ladies!

People were getting all over Christina Aguilera because she put on a few pounds. Frankly, I never though she looked better (and not just because I dig black hair and piercings either). She was one of the worst offenders when she started out. No hips, no butt. In all fairness, I think a lot of that had to do with her just growing up (remember people thought Britney got implants, when in reality she had just matured to that point).

Christina has lost a lot of that weight again, but she retained the hips and butt. That's what it's all about. Anorexia has finally gone out of style, and the world is once again at peace.

Ironic that Freddie Mercury, of all people, preached it so well.

When I started college (many years ago now), all the girls of my class were these thin, svelte things barely able to walk across campus in a stiff breeze. I always had a poor body image because I didn't look like them. Now, the freshmen I teach have a more womanly body with hips and pouches, even if their faces indicate they are only 12. :) I feel a little better about being this big, beefy woman.

It’s a lot funnier when you hear him say it.
