I’LL BE THERE FOR YOUUUUU.

moonsword:

Okay so I finally listened to that all about that bass song that everyone seems to be praising as a fat/body positive song???

Got some problems with this shit: 

'Cause I got that boom boom that all the boys chase
And all the right junk in all the right places

Here we have the classic judging the value of a woman’s body based on what the boys like. PLUS, saying that there are good and bad places to have fat. These are both NO-NO’s. 

Yeah, my mama she told me don’t worry about your size
She says, “Boys like a little more booty to hold tonight.”
You know I won’t be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll
So if that’s what you’re into then go ahead and move along

MORE placing value on your body based on what the guys supposedly do and do not like. PLUS, I don’t like the fact that the last two lines are sort of othering women who do take pleasure in things like Barbie dolls and dressing up like one. It feels like girl hate or along the lines of “I’m not like other girls.”  Which is just sickening.

I’m bringing booty back

Girl, you’re not bringing anything back. Sure you’re a little heavier than what society would call “skinny” or “thin”, but you are still verrrrry within the parameters of being a socially acceptable fat. And the fact that she’s saying this with woc twerking their actual booties throughout her video while she does nothing in this dress that conveniently hides her booty makes me uncomfortable, but that’s not really for me as a white person to get into and I could be reading into it too far.

Go ahead and tell them skinny bitches that
No I’m just playing. I know you think you’re fat
But I’m here to tell ya
Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top

No, my issue with this part is NOT the skinny bitches line that has caused so much controversy. ‘Cause while I’m all for body positivity for all bodies, and do not support shaming one body to boost another, non-fat bodies have it much easier in this society so I’m not going to shed a tear for them on this one song where they are dissed, plus it’s been covered by lots of other people already. 

My issue with this part is that she’s talking to the skinny women listening to this saying “I know you think you’re fat but I’m here to tell ya that every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top.” That’s a horrible way to put it. I AM fat and I AM perfect from the bottom to the top. This seems like such an ass backwards lyric coming from a song that’s supposed to be all about rocking your fat.

I think this could have been done much better. Really, the only person who you could see in this video who was not a socially acceptable standard of “fat” was that adorable and amazing guy dancing like there was no tomorrow between scenes (seriously, teach me your moves and lend me some of your charisma).

Yeah yeah the song is catchy and fat girls really don’t ever get any positive songs aimed at them, so I can understand why people are clinging to this song. But come on.

I’m about to watch the first season of Friends! 

I haven’t seen this show since I was in elementary school, so I don’t remember too much about it. But I’ve seen so many sweet gifsets from in recently it’s made me want to watch it all. 

Anonymous sent: Wow, you have an opinion. Who cares. Just leave people be.

I am leaving people be? Sounds like you took my opinion on the song personally. Which is quite silly. If you’re not here for a constructive look at the song, then follow your own advice and let me be. 

Excuse me for posting MY opinion on MY blog, lol.

Someone link me to some silly survey and I’ll answer all the questions 100% honestly.

I really wanted to like the song, it’s catchy (oh god stuck in my head all the time) but I haaaate how it’s all “the boys like you that way really”…just…no. Blah. You hit the nail on the head.

Yesss. Ugh. So awful. But it is totally stuck in my head now. It’s a cute tune, with some un-cute messages.

So I’m pretty sure I was able to deny/avoid giving my mom’s husband direct eye contact the entire week I was there. 

A+

Ugh. I think I do in fact like the Let It Go song. It gives me chills.

Fuck.
