Fat-bottomed girls you make the rockin world go round

I love Queen.  Their Greatest Hits CD is probs one of my favorite CDs of all time.

Fat-Bottomed Girls came on my iPod, and as I was chillin in the library I pondered why society is so obsessed over being SKINNY.  Beautiful, luscious, voluminous women were seeked after for centuries all over the world.  Although they may have been seeked after because of their higher ability to bear children, they were nevertheless the icon of beauty.  If you go to art galleries around the world, the walls depict beautiful, naked, plump women.  So what happened? When did slimness become a necessity? Why must so many girls be so self-conscious to the point where it jeopardizes their life? While washing my hands in the bathroom the other day these two skinny girls were standing in front of the mirror discussing how fat they were and how they were going to have to go to the gym for hours to work their dinner all off. I seriously wanted to yell at them, tell them that they shouldn’t let society and its perceptions take over their life.  Why let societal standards depict how you’re supposed to look? Just do what’s healthy for you FOR YOU, not for society. Society can be so mean to people.
