Once Upon Amanda

I like music, good food and pretty things. I can't parallel park or use scissors correctly. I'll probably bake you something just because. I'm a twin, I'm genetically engineered to share.

We’ve Been In ‘The Era Of The Booty’ For A Long Time
“An article that discusses “The Era of the Big Booty,” currying praise and high regard for curves — while erasing the culture that originally brought them to the mainstream — feels like someone saying only these kinds of bodies can receive this kind of praise. America rewards beauty heavily with privilege, promotions and favor. To shut out black women from being able to lay claim to their own features is cruel. To mention Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance, and not even once mention the other “big booties” on stage with her? Hazard a guess as to why.” — Commentator Erika Nicole Kendall on how the history of the full figure far predates J.Lo.
