“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?
