What’s Behind Twitter’s Obsession With Eating “Cake”?


You know, it’s said that we live in a microwave society. We are trendy. We want instant gratification. I’m sure we’re conditioned to be that way at this point. At least in small doses we all have a little microwave society in us. This day I examine a small part of what’s hot in the streets. You all probably have a good idea what it is I’m referring to. Analingus, tossing salad, and eating ass are all terms we’re familiar with by now. I mean hell,(black) twitter and instagram have made it hot! These are damn near household conversations. Just last week  a friend of mine tweeted that she didn’t go a day on twitter without seeing this stuff on her timeline. She wasn’t alone, my timeline mirrored the same. How about yours? I’ll tell you one thing, it wasn’t always like this. How did we get here? I’m not totally sure but I have an idea how.

I started high school in 2002. Music had a huge influence on all of us. Where I’m from hip hop was king. And with the culture being what it was it didn’t speak much about catering to a woman’s needs. This of course has changed some by now. But back then rappers weren’t talking about pleasing a woman. With that said, anyone who ever uttered a word about going down on a girl was shamed. It seemed a huge part of our culture didn’t support it so kids cracked on each other. If a kid had an acne problem and might’ve had a pimple close to their mouth it was a wrap. “Must’ve been eating that box” we might’ve said. Yes this is extremely juvenile but our pop culture backed us up. In hindsight, when you make a joke like that you tend to not look at the other side. The other side would mean that person was getting girls at least, right?

It’s hard to really pinpoint when I sensed a change.

But around maybe 2005 the climate seemed to change. Music seemed more content with going down on women. Hip hop at least wasn’t shaming the act hardcore like it once did. With that, people  felt more comfortable speaking about the act and doing the act. So now there’s an interesting dichotomy.

There’s people who have been eating out, and the newcomers to eating out.

With those powers combined it seemed like everyone was doing it! When everyone does something the appeal of it fades. It brings us to a time where people seemed to be seeking to push the envelope. In the years prior twitter, I can’t remember a single status about eating ass on facebook. Maybe my friends weren’t into it. What I do know is that for the last year or so eating ass has been “cool” on twitter. The topic is prevalent. Either people are saying they don’t do it, or someone is knocking someone for not doing it. One thing I see for sure is many women in favor of it. And if they’re digging it, then some fellas are doing it.

And no no, no shade. This is all fact.

I think people like to be engaged in sex discussions on social media. The prevalence of ass eating tweets stem from everyone looking for the next thing. We’re at the point where you have to think what the next craze will be. There will be something. I’m pretty cool where we’re at though. But because of social media  people will look to find other ways to be relevant.

This post won’t stop the ass eating tweets. They actually don’t bother me much. I find them funny. I just happened to be fascinated by so many people embracing it after once shaming it. In one small way have we grown as a nation? Yeah that’s a bit too far. All in fun y’all. How do you all feel about all the booty eating on twitter? Let’s have some fun and talk about it.

These are my words and I make no apologies.

  2. Hamilton Pasrah

    Berita terbaru dan terkini bola Soccer dari Agen Bola Indo11.com – Mercedes harus bergerak cepat jika tak ingin kehilangan pembalapnya musim depan. Pasalnya, Lewis Hamilton lebih memilih memasrahkan nasibnya pada Mercedes, karena belum juga disodorkan kontrak baru.

    Hamilton memiliki sisa kontrak selama 18 bulan atau hingga akhir musim 2015 mendatang untuk jadi pilot jet darat Mercedes. Pembalap asal Inggris itupun pasrah akan nasibnya bersama Mercedes meski dirinya mengaku sangat bahagia memacu mobil racikan timnya sekarang.

    ”Anda tidak pernah tahu apa masa depanmu ke depannya,” tutur Hamilton.

    Hal tersebut rupanya juga diamini dan diharapkan langsung oleh Direktur Tim Mercedes, Toto Wolff. Menurut bos Hamilton ini, dirinya masih ingin melihat juara musim 2008 itu berpacu untuk Mercedes setelah musim 2015 usai.

    “Kami sudah duduk bersama dan bernegosiasi dengan Lewis tentang kontrak multi-tahun. Lewis adalah bagian tetap dari tim, dan saya berharap bisa untuk waktu yang lama,” kata Wolff.

    Nasib Hamilton belum seberuntung rekannya Nico Rosberg yang sudah disodorkan perpanjangan kontrak lebih dulu oleh manajemen tim. Rekan asal jermannya itu sudah diikat Marcedes hingga tahun 2017 mendatang

  3. Arsenal Tak Butuh Balotelli

    Agen Bola Terpercaya indo11.com melaporkan, Manajer Arsenal, Arsene Wenger mengambil langkah tegas untuk menepis spekulasi transfer yang melibatkan klubnya dan striker AC Milan, Mario Balotelli. Wenger menegaskan bahwa klubnya saat ini tak membutuhkan sosok seperti Balotelli.

    The Gunners telah cukup lama dikaitkan dengan rumor kepindahan striker Timnas Italia tersebut. Namun menyusul kedatangan Alexis Sanchez mendampingi Olivier Giroud di lini depan Arsenal, rumor mengenai Balotelli pun perlahan menghilang.

    “Balotelli ke Arsenal? Kami tidak butuh dia,” tegas pria berjuluk The Professor ini.

    “Lini depan kami sudah penuh dengan bertahannya Giroud dan kedatangan Sanchez.”

    Hal ini tentu menjadi pukulan telak bagi Milan, yang kabarnya ingin cepat-cepat menjual sang striker bengal ke luar Italia. Sebelumnya, Rossoneribahkan dikabarkan sudah memangkas harga jual Super Mario untuk menarik klub peminat.

  4. Cavendish Tinggal Menunggu Lampu Hijau

    Berita terbaru dan terkini bola Soccer dari Agen Bola Indo11.com – Pembalap sepeda andalan tim Omega Pharma-Quick Step, Mark Cavendish masih belum mengetahui apakah dia sudah bisa tampil di kejuaraan dunia yang berlangsung di Spanyol, September mendatang.

    Pembalap 29 tahun itu mengalami cedera bahu, setelah insiden kecelakaan di pembukaan Tour de France. Namun, kondisi Cavendish saat ini sudah jauh lebih baik pasca operasi, bahkan dia sudah mulai berlatih dan mengayuh sepedanya pada akhir pekan kemarin. “Saya memiliki orang-orang hebat di sekitar saya dalam rehabilitasi saya dan kami akan berbicara dengan tim beberapa hari ke depan untuk mengetahui program apa buat saya,” ungkap Cavendish.

    “Saya tidak tahu berapa lama saya beristirahat, sebelum saya memulai balapan lagi,” ucap Cavendish ketika ditanya kemungkinan ambil bagian di kejuaraan dunia di Spanyol nanti.

    “Saya baru saja kembali di jalan dengan sepeda saya kemarin. Jelas saya tidak bisa bersaing dengan serius sampai saya mendapat jaminan tidak ada lagi masalah di bahu.”

    Cavendish mengakui bahwa dirinya saat ini berada dalam kondisi yang bagus dan mendapat banyak dukungan dari tim, termasuk juga orang sekelilingnya, untuk menyelesaikan kompatisi musim ini dengan bagus. “Saya ingin melakukannya dengan benar, saya tidak ingin terburu-buru kayuh sepeda, dan lebih buruk, saya tidak ingin kecelakaan dan merusak bahu saya lebih jauh.”

  5. Twitter is a pissing contest, men and women are always trying to one up each other. Same way all these women are down to eat 2 for $20s, play video games, check out other women, and want secks 7 days a week, men are suddenly booty munchers, who grow beards to soak in juices who happen to all be hopeless romantics….

  6. Blame Kanye lol.

    Hip-hop had been dominated by hyper-masculine gangsters/street dudes from it’s inception, including people like Run DMC and KRS-One. These guys enforced conformity thru beef. Kanye West’s College Drop out started a revolt against that era. Cake eating is simply an extension of the era.

  7. This is honestly a damn shame. We as black people have so many dirty titles and stigmas attached to us. Instead of trending on all of the great things that we are doing as individuals or collective communities, we are priding ourselves in ass-eating! I could go on and on about this, but I have come to the conclusion that anyone talking foolishness or posting garbage on my feed will be deleted. And if ass-eating is the most important thing in our world today, we have a lot of work to do….
