Not toned enough?
What's a girl to do?
It's bad enough that a girl's face, legs,boobs,butt, thighs, and even abdomen need be deemed sexy, now the female arm is becoming fetishized as well. All thanks to Michelle Obama. Michelle's sculpted arms, have prompted a love-fest in the Irish Times, the New York Times, and a feisty discussion on the pages of Jezebel. Silly me, all this time, I thought my arms were solely for the purpose of lifting things (albeit not very heavy things, mostly forks.) I didn't realize that they were the new erogenous zone. Here I was, exposing my arms freely to anyone that would look. And now I have to go and ponder the hotness of my flabby arms. I'm hoping this fad passes quickly. But while it's here, enjoy some steamy quotes about Michelle Obama's perfect pair.
"Muscled, curvy, brown and – dare I say – sexy. Slick and subtly shining... strong, sleek, buff arms. The arms say: “I work." - Irish Times
"But arms? You can’t go wrong with well-toned arms. We all want them now. It’s a new arms race." - Irish Times
"Nancy Reagan wore spangled ballgowns. Barbara Bush had fake pearls. Michelle Obama wears her bare arms." - New York Times
"On the Vogue cover, the first lady wears little makeup, subtle jewelry, a simple sheath. It’s her arms that pop out, rippled and gleaming."- New York Times
