r ppl actually writing articles about the “skinny bitches” lyric in nicki’s song????

are y’all serious

as a thin woman ima just say

plz stop pretending that fat-hate isn’t linked with anti-Blackness and that any feelings of “skinny shame” are in any way comparable to navigating the world as a fat Black woman or a fat woman of any other race. and are we non-Black women really fronting like we don’t benefit from a beauty hierarchy that positions Black women (especially dark-skinned, fat Black women) as the least desirable? come on y’all.

I don’t subscribe to the “real women have curves” bullshit but in a culture that simultaneously fetishizes and hates Black women’s bodies and uses fat-hate to (often) mask it’s hatred for those same bodies and the communities they come from, for Nicki to say “fuck skinny bitches, I have a big fat ass” is pretty rad so please, fellow thin and non-Black women, take a deep breath and remind yourself how much society caters to our body size.
