I Like Big Butts

@Remiel‘s Cosmopolitan magazine cover parody (via @IsaacH) reminded me of two feminist media critiques I had written up on Glamour and Ms. Magazine, and the influence of advertising on magazine journalism.


Yeah baby
When it comes to females
Cosmo ain’t got nothin’ to do with my selection
Only if she’s 5’3″

So Cosmo says you’re fat
Well I ain’t down with that
Cuz your waist is small and your curves are kickin’
And I’m thinkin bout stickin’;
To the beanpole dames in the magazines
You ain’t it Miss Thing
