It was an exciting week in cultural appropriation, as Blake Lively upset uptight SJW leftists over quoting a Sir Mix-a-Lot song lyric. Little victims who have too much time and not enough brain cells worked themselves in a tizzy over Lively saying she had an “Oakland booty.” Like her badunkadunk, the foamy, SJW rage was quite a thing to behold. You know who wasn’t upset by it? Sir Mix-a-Lot.
He thinks the whole thing is ridiculous actually…
“I don’t get it at all,” he said. “She’s saying she’s proud of her butt. I’m glad she embraced the look, because that’s what I wanted (with the song).”
Mix-a-Lot says he wrote “Baby Got Back” in 1992 to celebrate women in a time where magazines and TV shows were churning out unrealistic beauty standards. He wanted curvaceous ladies to embrace their bodies, and he says his booty-loving anthem applies to women of all colors and ethnicities.
“All I would say to the critics is let’s better understand the context of what she said,” Mix-a-Lot contended. “If what she’s saying is ‘I have this butt that Mix-a-Lot was talking about in ‘Baby Got Back,’ that’s a good thing. She’s saying I’ve embraced this ideal of beautiful.”
But the 52-year-old artist doesn’t believe that’s the case, and he’s glad the 28-year-old Lively hasn’t removed the controversial photo amid the wave of backlash.
“I’m glad she didn’t pull it down, he said. “I don’t think she should.”
Sure, as we’ve seen with the Washington Redskins, it doesn’t matter if the SJWs favorite ethnic group du jour isn’t offended. All that matters is that SJWs are offended for them, and the opinions of minorities only matter when they agree. Pretty sure that’s whitesplaining, isn’t it? It’s their word, I’m not totally clear on how/when/why it should be used. What with my penchant for using words with meaning.
But when the songwriter says not only was he NOT offended, but that it’s ridiculous for people to get upset over a song he wrote tongue-in-cheek, maybe we should listen to him. Though listening to him does threaten to get the song stuck in your head. You can do side bends or sit-ups, but please don’t loose that butt… See what I mean? The man’s a monster.
And he’s right… that booty is fiiiiiiine!
Which, can we be honest here, that was the problem. How dare a pretty, rich white woman take pride in her body. Body pride is only applicable if one is fat, hairy and ugly (read Feminist Photographer Makes a Stand… By Only Taking Ugly Pictures?!). Not if one is white, pretty and sparkles in an expensive gown.
Don’t believe me? If you haven’t eaten recently, maybe watch this video about fat feminists. But seriously, don’t eat before hand.
