Peep Deelishis. (I’m a grown ass woman, dawg. Why I gotta call some other woman DEELISHIS?) Better yet, peep her midsection. Okay. Got it? Let’s move on.
I checked my boy D’s blog and he had this pic of Deelishis up and the subsequent clip from Katt Williams.
Alright… I hear what Katt is saying and I can appreciate it at some level. However, I don’t think that’s the message that men are ACTUALLY sending out. I always hear guy friends talk about liking women with a little “feminine fat”. For example: a soft arm, a little pudge around the waist, big thighs. A lot of guys I know talk about liking natural hair, I’m talking Cree Summer ringlets to Kim Fields locs. Then, you’ve got men like Katt talking about stretch marks.
They say all of these things and then GLORIFY the women who look nearly impossible: big (and perky) boobs, a waist that can rock an anklet as a belly chain, hips like a thoroughbred and a Saartjie Baartman ass. Oh and don’t forget long, flowing hair.
Image after image of women fitting the above specifications are paraded in Black men’s magazines, videos, internet avatars, and desktop backgrounds.
So, can you see how a woman could get confused? If Deelishis wasn’t dragging a wagon behind her, would yall be so accepting of the streaks on her belly?
Just to be sure, go head girl to Deelishis for saying “fuck it” and wearing what she wants to wear. I’m sure she’s happy and comfy, so good for her. I’m just sayin… she had to know we were gonna talk.
