Oh My Gawd Becky!

Day 25 of the 30-day music challenge is a song that makes you laugh.  It's Baby Got Back by Sir Mix-A-Lot, one of my favourite old-school songs of all time.

Lots of people think this song is horribly misogynistic, but I've always felt nothing but love for the ladies from Mr Mix a Lot and his big butts.

The guys I hung around with in high school were mostly white, and I always knew I was ugly with my curly brown hair, brown eyes and flat chest.  I was pretty much the opposite of the white guy's idol, Pamela Lee. My teenage twin was Ugly Betty.

In the summer before Grade 12, I grew two cup sizes and the white guys still weren't interested (except for my amazing husband, but that's a different post), with all those fake blondes blinding their vision.  But the non-white guys started to turn their heads.  By the time I was 19 and out clubbing (drinking age is 19 here in Canada so I was a good little legal girl), I was getting plenty of attention from any guy with a permanent tan.  I never cheated on my serious boyfriend, who became my husband, but that male attention did wonders for my self esteem. 

No girl wants to feel like a hideous troll, and I've got a soft spot to this day for the darker guys who knew how to give good compliment and made me feel hot for the first time in my life.  Mwah - kisses!


  1. it's funny how hooters can improve your self image like they're somehow valuable.
    i think most of the girls i know like the big butts song. lol, those permanently tanned dudes appreciate girls/women who aren't bone skinny. maybe that's why i almost never dated a white guy til i met my husband. i always thought i'd have lovely brown skinned babies.

  2. Haha I love Baby Got Back! And I t=started this challenge the other day, I just got sidetracked by a car accident, so I just caught up on 3 days in 1 post

  3. I'm pretty much the opposite of most guy's fantasies, too. Wavy brown hair, flat chest, pail as all get out. Gotta love the men who can appreciate something a little different!


Lend me some sugar!
