  • To do so “perpetuates the idea that curves are new, trendy, covetable accessories, thereby dismissing women of color whose curves existed long before it was fashionable to have them, and whose bodies have been critiqued throughout history” (as Carimah Townes wrote for Think Progress in response to Vanity Fair’s Jen Selter story). Author of the Vogue piece, Patricia Garcia, even goes so far as to include Miley Cyrus in the movement, saying she “proved you didn’t need to have a large butt to become a part of the conversation.” It’s bad enough to ignore African American and Latino women who have proudly been part of this butt “conversation” since the dawn of humanity.”

  • "History says, Don’t hope
    On this side of the grave,
    But then, once in a lifetime
    The longed-for tidal wave
    Of justice can rise up,
    And hope and history rhyme."
    Seamus Heaney (1939-2013)
