|When you see this pretty woman, you might think that she looks strong and healthy. But did you think she's probably smart as well? |
Perhaps you should. Research has revealed that pear shaped women with wide hips and big bottoms tend to be more intelligent. Better still, our children tend to be more intelligent as well. The reason is that those curves are rich in omega-3 fatty acids that promote brain growth.
I've listened to comments about my shape since I was eleven. Some were hurtful, some benign, but all true. I have a big butt. I'm a PAWG, a booty girl, a broad, junk in the trunk, saddlebags, love handles and all the rest.
It took years for me to first accept and later appreciate my body. Randy has been great. He has always praised my figure and reminds me that he loves me as I am. The popularity of celebrities like Jennifer Lopez helped to build my confidence as well. This is my body. I own it. It's mine. I no longer envy others or feel the need to transform myself. I'm OK.
So now we learn that there is a correlation between low waist/hip ratio and higher intelligence. Wow. Hips are cool. I wish I had possessed this fact when our daughter was a self-conscious teen. You can bet that if our ten-year-old granddaughter inherits this family trait, we will have a conversation about it. She will know that she is a beautiful young woman just as she is.
