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!
