Can I just stop and talk about how Missy Elliot is essentially my fucking patronus?

Because this woman….

This woman is what I channel when I’m feeling like shit because of the anti-dark skin, anti-fat bullshit that I see and hear every fucking day.

Because her songs, even after she lost the weight, are all about how she don’t give NO FUCK because her weight ain’t affectin how she is a sexual being.

And she is ALL about her fucking bodily autonomy and sexual positivity.

The song “Pump it up” had the line “I shake my gut like ‘YEAH BITCH, WHAT?’” and I literally LOST MY SHIT at hearing it.

Because when’s the last time you EVER heard a song speak fondly of a woman who had a fucking stomach?

I could write a fucking dissertation about how fucking profound she is…
