The Brief: Reddit users have been sharing memes with side-by-side pictures of different-sized body parts to make comparisons between two things.
The most popular version of this meme format, the “Volleyball Booty Meme” features two volleyball players’ butts, one of which is bigger than the other. Text or image is added to each of the butts, with the bigger one hosting the “better thing.”
Although the people in the picture are wearing spandex shorts, some of these posts have been flagged for inappropriate content. Whether or not these memes are NSFW, they definitely objectify women’s bodies to make a joke.
Another popular version of the meme uses different-sized women’s breasts to make comparisons.
This version uses men’s genitalia instead.
Some creators have taken the virality of this meme as an opportunity to make meta-memes.
