Ms. Fat Booty

“Ass so fat, that you can see it from the front” (C) Mos Def, “Ms Fat Booty”

Last night I was talking to a girlfriend on the phone and she mentioned that her boyfriend asked her why did her sisters have ample ASSets and she didn’t. I don’t know if she was more upset at the fact that her boyfriend had been eyeballing her sister’s asses or if he wasn’t satisfied with hers. I asked her if she told him to pick up a book about genetics, and read up on how certain physical aspects are passed on to people and others aren’t. She also proved my point again, that he’s not the brightest light bulb in the socket, as usual.

In my family, the following physical traits are common when it comes to body structure:

1. A fat ass

2. Big breasts

3. Broad shoulders

4. Narrow hips

5. Wide hips

Usually the women have a combination of the above. My younger sister was graced with the ample bosom like my mother. My other sister, although she’s quite thin, has a great set of hips, that she inherited from my mother as well. Myself on the other hand, I think I was given the ass that should have been equally shared amongst my two sisters and I.

Which brings me to my experience this morning at CVS.

I went to CVS to pick up some Kleenex for my office. I was dressed a lot more conservative this morning that I usually am for work. Dress pants, dress shirt, heels & a sweater. Usually, I’m either in a pair of jeans or a jean skirt. So anyways, I’m standing in line waiting for to complete my transaction. I feel someone practically breathing down my neck, but I didn’t want to turn around. All of a sudden I hear someone say, in a whisper like voice, “Damn, good morning Ms. Fat Booty”. Now, if this happened a few months ago, I would have quickly turned around gave him a piece of my mind, but I decided to pretend like I didn’t hear him. I finally completed my payment and made my way out of the store. I truly was not in the mood to entertain ignorance and rudeness. But of course, he had to continue to push my buttons. As I’m trying to get into the car, he walks past and says, “Have a good day, Ms. Fat Booty” and he winked. The ONLY reason why I didn’t say anything this time was because I saw him in his Univ of MD. Terp gear and a book bag, so I knew it wouldn’t be feasible for me to curse out a student on campus.

My question is, what’s the big deal about a woman’s ass that have some men speechless or just brings out the ignorance in them? On several occasions, I’ve caught myself looking at a woman’s butt (no homo) but, it’s always been because I’ve followed the eyes of whatever guy I was with at that time to see what they were trying to sneak a look at.

Men, what draws you to do a double take when it comes to a woman’s derrière?

Women, if you’ve ever received unwanted attention, how do you respond to it?

    WOW! It truly amazes me how men can just speak without thinking about how it will come across to a lady. I guess they are just trying to see which ones are receptive to their wooing, so they can pounce.
    I understand where you are coming from because my sister and I are well endowed on the backside. Actually my sister is well endowed in the breasts as well. I wasn’t given voluptuous breasts and I am quite fine with that. My “fat booty” grabs enough unwanted attention. My mother has no booty, but large breasts. I mean she really is flat as a board. I always joke with her when I see women of other races with a “fat booty”. I say “Ooh mama, look! She stole your booty.”
    I am self conscious of my “fat booty” or maybe not. It’s just that I don’t want to be preyed upon like a piece of meat. In school I was called “Big Booty Bridget” by young boys who thought it was cool to “flirt” that way. I, on the other hand, was left a little scarred because I didn’t know how to accept my butt as a part of myself. I always thought guys just wanted to talk to me because I had a “fat booty”. Then I grew older and my booty was still all the rage and the envy of all of my friends because it had a small waist to go along with it. And yes the guys still loved it (and still do), but I am still trying to accept it. I still wear my shirts on the outside as a concealer. LOL! I don’t think that it is okay that we would have to try to cover ourselves. Guys just need to SHUT UP and keep all inappropriate comments to themselves. It’s like they be on “fat booty duty”, out to find all all the ladies with fat asses. So not right! I just want to say “Stop drooling because it doesn’t look good on you. And furthermore, this booty is taken. Go find your own.” But I digress and just give a stupid look. Some things are better left unsaid.

      In high school I would always wear longer shirts to hide my behind! Even till this day, I hate walking up the stairs in front of a man, b/c I’m always feeling as though I’m being stared at. I remember one incident in particular where I had a male boss and we were sitting in a meeting with another male coworker. I was the first person to excuse myself from his office during the meeting and as I was walking away, from my peripheral I could see the both of them staring at my butt. My face heated up really fast, but I didn’t say anything.
      Some men have no tact at all nowadays. I think for now on, I’m just going to start staring and pointing at their crotches, then laugh at it. LOL!

    Girl. I wish I knew what it was. Men are so simple. It’s like, they just can’t help themselves.

      Unfortunately, there are the ones who still act as if they’re in middle/high school, even though they’re 20+ yrs old.

    Booty booty booty booty rockin everywhere….
    It’s just like when you see a pretty face, it draws you in and you’re attracted to it.
    I like mine where you can set a drink on it, without it spilling.

    Oh you women act like you don’t do it too………it’s just that you’re more discrete about it and the things women like are easier to stared at without getting caught. Don’t act like you don’t stare at tall men or men with broad shoulders or men’s hands. The list is probably 100 pages long, its just that the male crotch is more towards the end of the list that’s all, where the woman’s breasts and butt are more towards the top of the male list. Woman like the attention, stop acting like you don’t. If a man walked up to you and started staring into your eyes, glancing at your lips and commenting on those, you’d drop your panties in the grocery store in the produce aisle. Really I think it’s a matter of what day you get that booty comment too, standing in line waiting to buy kleenex is probably not the right time to get your booty talked about, but I’m sure there are places that you’d be more open to that comment.

      Yes, I never said women didn’t do it. But where as women have mastered the art of discrestion, a lot of men haven’t. No one never said women didn’t like attention, but it’s quality vs. quantity. Where is the line drawn when ‘attention’ becomes down right disrespectful? If a man did approach me in a polite and respectful way and didn’t reduce me to a piece of meat, then fine, I’ll say thank-you and accept the compliment. Otherwise, you’ll get the WTF face, immediately.

    Yeah, I’m sure if you were in a club and some guy you thought was hot or a celeb you thought was hot was there and commented on your ass you’d have no problem with it. The problem with this guy was, he was at CVS and he was carrying a bookbag. lol
    If he hopped out of a Range Rover and had nice clothes on and his name was Mike and he was Italian from NY, those said panties would be dropped…..for real! lol

      I don’t care if you have $1 or $1mil in the bank. Respect is respect. Not all women want to be reduced to body part. Somethings are better left unsaid, hence the lack of DISCRESTION some people have, or never learned.

    yeah but there is also NO disputing the fact that we, as men, are pigs…plain and simple….the nicest guy or the biggest dog in the world, it doesnt matter……some men have an easier time of keeping it in, but I see old dudes, young dudes, businessmen, thugs, priests, whatever…checking girls out….
    I’m slick with mine….I damn near NEVER get caught. And usually if imma lookin, imma likin…..
    I mean there has been the occasional “DAMNNNNN” thats slipped out loud…lol….but I try to keep it in and the disrespect to a minimum.
    Italian girls don’t have fatty’s anyway, so when I see ’em, I gotta say somethin! lol

      insert applause!
      A man finally admits that men are pigs..lol
      Being that I know you personally, I don’t see you as the disrespectful type…but I did catch you taking a few looks at women a couple of years back in Atlantic City. (Insert dumb stare) Yeah, you didn’t think I remembered that huh? lol

    You know I agree with you 100%; it is all about DISCRETION… Some men are about as discreet as an elephant walking thru a fine china house – but at the end of the day it is what it is…
    Men will continue to be the way that they are as long as there are women that love it… I know plenty of women who love it when men act like asses.. They play around like they don’t, but you know the type…
    All I know is if I get the chance to see your behind – you wouldn’t know that I sized it every which way lol…

    Who knows or cares what goes through the minds of these men out here. I very rarely cuss them out anymore. I just wonder what makes them think they are in any way shape or form appropriate. What cracks me up is when I’m strolling through Kroger and some guy tries to step in my path to get noticed. I hate that.

    I’m fairly blessed in the rear and usually I look at ignorance like that guys as insecurity, and therefore not my problem. I do remember one incident that was hilarious. I was walking out of a store going to my car and there is a guy driving up next to me looking very hard….the next thing I know I hear a small crash! This fool hit the curb hard! He was so embarrassed that I didn’t have to worry about him ever again.

    Guys are the worst!
    My sophomore year in high school I was flat as a board but I had my mother’s hips. I used to cover my hips with big jeans and t-shirts.
    After joining the weight lifting team, I started to put on muscle weight and my butt appeared out of nowhere. I can’t tell you how self conscious I was. No one knew my body had changed like this until I showed up to Junior Homecoming in a catsuit, and it’s like the floodgates of male hell broke loose. I hated the attention.
    Every once in a while, you get that appreciative nod that makes you feel good…but other than that it’s just a bother to me.

    LOL @ “no homo”
    I seriously doubt whether there’s an explanation as to why most men are drawn to a phat ass. There are some things that just can’t be explained, and to me this is one of them. I will say though, that not all phat booty is attractive. I mean, there’s a phat booty, and then there’s a FAT woman with a booty….BIG DIFFERENCE.
    Oh and when dude called you Ms. Phat Booty, you shoulda responded, “Hey Lil Dick how ya doin??”

    Oh and “Black On Both Sides” is still one of my favorite albums of all time.

    This is so funny I own a ridiculous azz according to my friends and all my friends compare notes on how fun it is to walk behind me. *lol*
    I ignore unwanted attention and try to just be polite. I wear a lot of sunglasses and headphones when out and about. It helps with pretending not to hear.
    Yesterday in the Philly airport my azz made quite a stir. Not sure why but enough for me to notice it and according to my friends I never notice the impact the size of my azz has over most people I come in contact with. *lol*
