Sir Mix-A-Lot was the first to come out and say it and it took a long time for everyone to get on board. He said,

I like big butts and I cannot lie, you other brother can't deny when a girl walks in with an itty-bitty waste and round thing in your face you get sprung.

"Baby Got Back" was released in 1992 and for a long time after you other brothers did deny. Why did it take us so long as a society to crown the big butt as the champion of the world? What is it about butts that made us not want to admit that we love them so much? It's not just men either, I talk to women who look at other women's butts and dudes butts all day long and show massive amount of public appreciation for them.

Back in the day, everyone skipped leg day, dudes, ladies everyone looked like a walking candy apple coming out of the gym. Today, it's all squats, you have entire workouts, gyms and fitness gurus dedicated to just pumping up butts and we are all better for it but the butt didn't get it's full acceptance until like 2011.

Before that we'd say things like "I'm a leg man." You were not a leg man, you were the ASSMAN, you just could not admit that on record. It's a funny curious little thing and a unique situation. I can't think of any other example of something universally beloved that Planet Earth lied to themselves about. It's like if all humans had a closet love for ice cream and finally in 2011 we all came out of the shadows to profess our love for ice cream.

If there is not a scientific study into this soon, I'd be really astonished because I'm really onto something with this question. While we wait for the answer as to why we had to hide our booty love away, let's watch a famous booty video. I urge you to mute the video as not to ruin the images with the terrible song that was the excuse for them.
