For those women who were not born with attractive faces or large breasts, the ascendancy of the ass is a godsend — a back door, if you will, to attractiveness.

The rise of the ass has been welcomed by feminists, both for the reason outlined above and because it is a way to stick it to white chicks, who, in comparison to black chicks, are not as prodigiously endowed down there — though, as usual, no one cares about the collateral damage this trend has inflicted upon Asians, notoriously small-assed.

In an era in which race does not exist (except when it does), feminism’s implicit acceptance of the idea that black women have large asses for genetic reasons is strange. When confronted with such contradictions, it’s always a good idea to revert to the maxim Who Whom — who is doing what to whom. If the idea that race exists can be used against white people, then race exists.

Theories abound for why the ass has overtaken the breasts in the “male’s gaze.” According to Ray Browne, a researcher of popular culture, it has to do with the rise in women wearing pants, specifically denim pants:

[E]mphasis on the upper female torso has recently given way to the lower area of the body, specifically the buttocks. Such a change happened quite recently when denim jeans became fashionable. In order to emphasize fit, jeans manufacturers accentuated hips. And after brand name jeans became so popular with the designer’s name on the hip pocket, even more accentuation was given to the posterior. The more jeans sales increased, the more ads were used which emphasized the derrier, to such an extent, in fact, that this particular area may eventually surpass breasts as the number one sexual image of the female body…

One of the victories of feminism has been the unisexualisation of clothing — girls wearing pants instead of dresses, skirts, etc. It was believed that this would bring about a new, progressive era in which women’s bodies were no longer sexualised, ditto for their clothing. But if Ray Browne’s theory is correct, then the exact opposite has happened: in addition to breasts, men now have another “sexual object” to occupy their “male gaze” — the ass.

Personally, i’m pretty happy with all this. My job (picking items from shelves in a supermarket) would be pretty boring were it not for women pushing their trolleys around in tight pants.
