A few of my friends recently told me about a woman named Alex. After I read a little bit about her, I decided to blog about her this evening. The reason why my friends “introduced” me to her is because she is my body double. We are built the exact same way! I’ll be sharing pictures from her page throughout my post. All I ask is that you don’t sexualize the pictures. This post is about body appreciation and body acceptance.
Alex Kauffman is a Black woman who is NOT ashamed of how she is built. Black women are often called “fat” because of our buttocks and hips, but that’s not always the case. Genetically, Black women have denser bones and higher fat deposits in the hips and buttocks area compared to non-Black women. That is why we typically weigh more than non-Black women.
Women like myself can relate to the looks and comments Alex sometimes get. If I’m not being told that I have a “ghetto” booty by some non-Black women, I’m getting eyes rolled at me whenever I’m at the beach. You mad about the wrong thing because I’m not paying you or your man (whose eyeballing me) any mind. I’m too busy collecting my sea shells. Some women shouldn’t be so quick to body shame other women. How can you hate on a body like this?
All I got to say is: Show ‘Em Alex! 🙌🏾 Thanks for showing the world that a woman can be curvy and still be beautiful! One mo’ time for the women in the back who got much back!! 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾
Thick thighs saves lives! 💪🏾💪🏾
Until next time, love the skin and the body you are in.
