This article makes me want to cheer and cry all at once

November 18, 2008

First lady got back, from Salon today.

Part of me wants to cheer…YAY!!! A real woman, who is beautiful, brilliant, and large posteriored!!

The other part of me groans, WTF are we talking about her ass at all for anyway??? Do we talk about Obama’s ass? Shrub’s? I did not have sexual relations with that (big butted) woman Clinton’s? Hmmmmmm?? Do we??? We didn’t even talk about their wives asses – did we???

Ok. Enough schizophrenic feelings on this for now.

    Well, I guess if you’re a woman who’s felt derided for having a large butt, it’s nice to have a national role model.

    Me, what I’ve been noticing is how tall she is. Michelle made Laura Bush look like a pygmy. (See, being on 5’2″, I’m sensitive to height issues.)

    The linked articles by the same author were especially helpful in providing context; she is even more eloquent on Obama the career professional, wife, and mom.

    Prayers for the incoming “First Lady” and her family.

    Errrh . . . one of MY first thoughts when I saw First Lady -elect Obama enter the stage at one of the events was, “WOW! It’s okay to be curvy again!” Guess I’m still suffering from the rise of Twiggy. Doesn’t hurt that the woman has brains she hasn’t used yet (i.e., brain capacity appears immense, well-ventilated, and balanced). All in one package. First female non-white President?

    Yeah Catherine..that’s why I was laughing and crying all at once – YAY for her being her, smart, and HOT and curvy.

    But…boo on us needing to discuss it as a society…that in this day and age, women are still looked at for their sex appeal, and that some people will denigrate her for having a big butt..and some people will like her for having one.

    I dunno..maybe I’m over sensitive. Could be. I’ve been know to be so before!
