My Humps!

Today's blog inspiration came from a fellow blogger complaining about her "female wobbly bits". She (i can't name names, she'd kill me to say the least) has a great ass and for most of the time i've known her, has been hell-bent on hiding it! I blame the media :-) Most images that are projected towards us of the quintessential woman are usually in the form of gaunt, malnourished, pre-pubescent girls who look like they're all but dying for a Big Mac or some KFC. As women, we are assaulted day-by-day, hour-by-hour with these subliminal messages that if you don't make this impossible grade of perfection, you are lacking. Lily Allen says it best in her song "Everything's Just Wonderful" -

"I wanna be able to eat spaghetti bolognaise,
and not feel bad about it for days, and days, and days.
All the magazines, they talk about weight-loss.
If i buy those jeans, i can look like Kate Moss"
I say... FUCK IT! Embrace your curves/humps/lumps, eat what you want...don't forget, the odd bit of cardiovascular exercise won't hurt you now & again. The next time you see Adriana Lima batting her eyelashes on some Guess Ad, remember, the poor girl can't remember when she had her last meal...*snigger snigger*
