It’s an otherwise average Thursday, and here we sit, another rogue butt going viral.
For the uninitiated, it would appear a photo of Hilary Duff’s bum has taken reins of the internet in the last few days, with debate as to how good/very good/on-a-scale-of-zero-to-Kardashian-good her butt really is.
Not just any butt, too! Hilary Duff’s “thick” butt. Not too bony, not too big. (Thank god – who wants to see a butt that’s anything other than totally pert saturating your feed?)
The headlines have looked a little like this:
When did Hilary Duff get thick like this?
Hilary Duff’s Butt May Have Just Broken the Internet
People Have Just Realised Hilary Duff Is Thick And, Honey, They’re Living
Curves ahead! Hilary Duff shows off her bountiful backside as she shares a laugh on set
Twitter was similarly enthralled.
Aside from the particularly perverted way we have decided to make someone’s backside public property, it appears ‘thick’ is the swanky new adjective we’ve enlisted to describe the female body.
According to Buzzfeed, to be thick is to have “a nice ass, nice legs, not skinny, with meat on your bones”.
But of course. You’re not fat. You’re not skinny. You’re thick.
Take this, from Urban Dictionary – which also happens to be the same resource Buzzfeed used to come to their own conclusion about its definition.
“They have a solid body-type, big boobs, big hips, small waist, and big butt. They have a body that won’t break when you have sex. Not only do they have a body you can grab on to, but they usually have a confident personality. Thick girls are generally more real than skinny chicks, which have nothing to grab on to,” it reads, so delightfully.
(Shout out to the men who are being silently “broken” by the bodies of women during sex – you’re the real heroes.)
