5 Ways Thick Thighs Save Lives

5 Ways Thick Thighs Save Lives

This is for thick thighs. God Bless.

First things first, God bless thick thighs. Although there is an overwhelming controversy on thigh gaps versus thick thighs, I love all shapes and sizes. The fact that you can be confident in your body is a blessing within itself. With saying that, we are going to pay tribute to the thick thighs.

1. The Bigger Your Thighs, The More Snacks You Can Hold.

Standing up, our thighs are lusciously shaped. They are round, fluent, and flirtatious. However, we all know the struggle of sitting down. We unconsciously estimate the size of the seat. Upon initial contact, there is no stopping our thighs. With a rush of gravity, our perfectly shaped thighs are pressed to the max. Our average Australia-sized thighs are now the size of Europe. With our extended leg room, we are better able to build a personal table. We are now able to lay our snacks out, color code them, create war, and then consume them. It is like our own personal battleground on our laps. This comes in handy when watching movies, picnics, and other specific occasions.

2. The Closer Your Thighs, The Closer You Are To Being A Mermaid

As a curvy individual, it is important to compare ourselves to something magical (like our thighs). In this case, we are referring to mermaids. Their tales are the best part. Although romanticized heavily in fairy tales, mermaids are given a curvy body to look appealing to the eye. If their curves are so appealing, why can't ours be?

3. They Are Always A Seat Belt For Chairs

Sitting down in a chair with arms, you are never promised a clean get up. It is like opening a can of uncooked Pillsbury biscuit dough. The excess thighs just leaks over the sides of the chair, creating a safety-lock seat belt. This makes it difficult to stand up at times. But it also ensures that you will not fall out of your chair.

4. Your Thigh Will Catch Your Phone in Desperate Situations

For example, we all know those moments when you are sitting on the toilet scrolling through Facebook. But then all of a sudden, your phone slips through your grasp, plummeting to the toilet below. You have two option. You can face the fact that you just lost your expensive phone with all your memories and/or important contacts. Or, you can clasp your thighs together so fast that it sends an earthquake to Chicago. The second option is why thighs saves lives. Your phone will be safe and secure in between your thighs.

5. They Help With Personal Space

We all know the struggle of shopping, or just public in general. Where the crowds are heavy, people are pushing, and all you want to do is get your things and get out. Well, with thighs, you are better able to booty-bump your way through crowds. A little shimmy here, a little hip thrust here, and you have yourself a great deal during black Friday. The possibilities are endless.

So I must reiterate myself again. Though all shapes and sizes are beautiful, this one is for the thick thighs. Thick thighs are happy thighs! God Bless.

10 Things I Threw Out AFTER Freshman Year Of College

Guess half the stuff on your packing list doesn't really matter

I spent the entire summer before my freshman year of college so WORRIED.

I also spent most of my money that summer on miscellaneous dorm stuff. I packed the car when the time finally came to move in, and spent the drive up excited and confused about what the heck was actually going on.

Freshman year came and went, and as I get ready to go back to school in just a few short weeks (!!), I'm starting to realize there's just a whole bunch of crap I just don't need.

After freshman year, I threw out:

1. Half my wardrobe.

I don't really know what I was thinking of owning 13 sweaters and 25 T-shirts in the first place. I wear the same five T-shirts until I magically find a new one that I probably got for free, and I put on jeans maybe four times. One pair is enough.

2. Half my makeup.

Following in the theme of #1, if I put on makeup, it's the same eyeliner-mascara combination as always. Sometimes I spice it up and add lipstick or eyeshadow.

3. My vacuum.


One, I basically never did it. Two, if I REALLY needed to vacuum, dorms rent out cleaning supplies.

4. Most of my photos from high school.

I didn't throw them ALL away, but most of them won't be making a return to college. Things change, people change, your friends change. And that's okay.

5. Excess school supplies.

Binders are heavy and I am lazy. I surprisingly didn't lose that many pens, so I don't need the fifty pack anymore. I could probably do without the crayons.

6. Cups/Plates/Bowls/Silverware.

Again, I am lazy. I cannot be bothered to wash dishes that often. I'll stick to water bottles and maybe one coffee cup. Paper plates/bowls can always be bought, and plastic silverware can always be stolen from different places on campus.

7. Books.

I love to read, but I really don't understand why I thought I'd have the time to actually do it. I think I read one book all year, and that's just a maybe.

8. A sewing kit.

I don't even know how to sew.

9. Excessive decorations.

It's nice to make your space feel a little more cozy, but not every inch of the wall needs to be covered.

10. Throw pillows.

At night, these cute little pillows just got tossed to the floor, and they'd sit there for days if I didn't make my bed.

Drag Queen Soju Brings Attention To Ignorance Towards Asians In America

Soju's efforts are particularly significant to Asians in the LGBT+ community, who are not widely represented in American media.


A recent episode of "RuPaul's Drag Race," which is currently in its eleventh season, opened up a conversation about the treatment of Asian Americans in the drag community. During the episode's "reading" challenge, in which contestants jokingly exchange insults, Silky Nutmeg Ganache "read" Vietnamese-American contestant Plastique Tiara by repeatedly shouting what she claimed was the word "hurry" in Japanese. After asking what the word meant, Plastique responded, "I'm not Japanese!" as the other contestants laughed. Fans took to social media to express disappointment in the ignorance of Silky's joke, causing other "Drag Race" contestants to weigh in on the situation.

Soju, a Korean-American drag queen who also competed on season eleven, tweeted, "I'm Korean and plastique is Vietnamese" following the episode. She later added, "This isn't about dragging @GanacheSilky this is about educating. All of us can learn." Soju emphasized that she does not believe Silky is racist, but her read was still racially insensitive.

Soju stated in another series of tweets, "If my friends and sisters don't take my heritage and race seriously, then the problem is on me for letting these 'jokes' go on for too long... I've never had a problem for enjoying and celebrating Asian culture. But statements and jokes to degrade us is just not cool." In response to a reply on her tweet, she also added, "this is and always will be educating society about the reality of how Asians are not being taken seriously in America."

Fans praised Soju for bringing attention to and addressing the issue. Many Asian fans, in particular, were able to share their own experiences in their response to Soju. Jokes like the one made by Silky have always existed in the experience of Asian Americans. While the joke itself may not appear too harmful on the surface, it reflects the general perception of Asians in America. Asians are ignorantly treated as a monolith rather than as a diverse group with diverse backgrounds, and Asian culture is often presented as an amalgamation of cultures (mainly East Asian) as well.

Soju's efforts are particularly significant to Asians in the LGBT+ community, who are not widely represented in American media. Both her and Plastique Tiara's appearance on "RuPaul's Drag Race" have given positive representation to LGBT+ Asian-Americans, and it is especially encouraging to see her using her platform in the community to help educate others.
