Sarah Massey, a 33-year-old Chicago woman, is making headlines for possessing world's biggest butts (at seven FEET wide), and she is proud of it.
Massey reportedly receives disability checks due to limited mobility, once cracked a toilet seat due to her girth, and struggles to fit in doors or use seatbelts.
And yet, she says she's happy with who she is: "I used to be ashamed, but now I hold my head high ... I want to show the world I am proud to be me."
Somewhere, Maria Kang is prepping her next Facebook tirade.
While it's commendable when a person is comfortable with whatever size they are, Sarah Massey doesn't seem like she's in particularly good shape.
Not that that's her fault whatsoever, if you hear her tell it.
"At school I was teased and called Dump Truck Butt by other kids, but the condition is hereditary, there's nothing I can do about it," Massey says.
"I carry this weight with me all the time, everywhere I go."
"It’s definitely not fake. Big booties are just in my blood."
Could that possibly be true? That she's predestined to have a butt that's 84.5 inches around, and there is NO fighting genetics on this whatsoever?
While respecting her self-esteem, we can't help but wonder if there is help she could seek, be it medical, dietary nutritional, fitness-related ... something.
Twerking lessons from Miley Cyrus? Her husband, who says he loves that she's a "whole lotta woman" probably wouldn't complain. Just saying.
Regardless, Massey tells the Mirror (UK), "I'm trying to make the most of what I've been given and being confident about who I am makes me happy."
"If I can inspire others to embrace their curves and be proud big, beautiful women, I would be very happy."
Embrace their curves?
Inspiring others to be healthier and happier is a noble goal and a great mantra for life. But it would resonate more if she were healthier and happier, no?
Are we being too cynical, THGers? You tell us: Is Sarah Massey is really empowering women and setting a good example, or just living unhealthily?
