Recently, a big girl hopped up onto the checkout counter at Walmart to make an important announcement that everyone needed to hear: BBWs are popping. We have the sauce.

When Senior Editor Stephen A. Crockett Jr. posted this video in our Slack chat early Friday afternoon, I felt it in my spirit. That big girl was speaking for all of us out here in the struggle.

Big girls are popping. We do have the sauce. We are what you need as the weather gets colder and the nights get longer. Get you some of this good cooking and good cuddling. It’s what you need in your life.

Listen. Big girls have a level of confidence that is unmatched. We know what it is. Society tries to knock us at every turn, and in spite of that, we are out here flourishing and living our best lives.

We cut through the bullshit and live without pretense. What we are is out there for all to see, so we don’t bother hiding it. If anything, we flaunt it even more. No need to be ashamed; your hate makes us great.

My sisters in fluffy will tell you: For every dude who says no, there are at least five more who say hell yes, and that is more than OK with us.

Search #BBW on Instagram and get into our legion of fans. Not just the chubby chasers and the fetishizers, but the men who genuinely just prefer a woman with a lot of meat on her bones.

We outchea.

We aren’t going to play that cute shit and order a salad when you take us out (unless that’s what we actually want to eat). Fuck that; bring me a full meal and dessert, too. My body is ready.

If you weren’t there to see our producer Danielle Young back that ass up when Cash Money took over for the ’99 and the 2000 at The Root 100 gala, then you missed your opportunity to get your life. Shit. Got. Real.

That’s just how it is, and that’s how it’s gonna be. We aren’t shrinking violets, and we aren’t going to hide on the sidelines waiting to get chose.
