In what can only be described as an attempt to sound as out-of-touch as possible, Vogue has announced that “We’re officially in the era of the big booty.“
The magazine claims that the era began with Kim Kardashian’s groundbreaking idiot tour, Keeping up With The Kardashians, in 2007. “It made the entire clan famous, of course, but Kardashian’s behind was the real star, and was frequently employed as a plot device,” explained the glossy.
Vogue also insists that Instagram made booty a desirable trait, and even oddly highlights Miley Cyrus — a woman with zero, perhaps even negative booty — as someone pioneering this movement. It would be hilarious if it wasn’t so scarily wrong. Disrespecting the booty is not a laughing matter.
Somehow Vogue has missed the fact that Booty Appreciation has been around since oh, the dawn of time. And crediting Armenian and white women with making booty “okay,” completely — and ignorantly — glosses over black women.
Of course this is Vogue, so what did you expect? However, if this article leads to more twerking from women who should never, ever twerk, we’re never going to forgive the magazine.
