Strawberry Shortcake Lyrics
Stand back, watch it taking shape
Wondering why I don't look like Barbie
They say boys like girls with a tiny waist
Now, my mama's preaching to make sure I'm pure
But, I never really cared about that shit...

Melanie is standing up for what isn't fair. women often get blamed because assholes treat and touch women like property and women get blamed- saying that the women are to blame for showing skin. Melanie is pointing out how women get blamed because guys can't keep their hands to themselves. another thing is she points out her mixed feeling about her body. she wants boys to notice her body (¨boys like girls with a tiny waist¨)because every girl ants to feel pretty but guys only notice her legs, boobs, butt and thighs. shes saying how it's her fault for looking nice and wearing what she wants and feels comfortable with, but shes getting shit on because men don't know how to be respectful. you don't get attention from boys for looking pretty, you get it from having big boobs and a good ass. (Mikey's eyes seem to be glued to her chest/ so im stuffin my bra so that mine look the best... instead of making me feel bad for the body I love/ just teach him to keep it in his pants and tell him to stop)is saying she should be able to wear what she wants without havingto worry about boys hands where they shouldnt be. this song is great and relatable to any girl.

I think it’s about how crybaby(or people) gets raped and the raspiest says how it’s the her fault for showing to much skin (“got boys acting like they ain’t seen skin before”). And how this gets her insecure about how her body looks (“ feeling unsure of my naked body”) and boys only caring how peoples ass, breasts,(“ mikeys eyes seemed to be glued to her chest”) legs, and thighs look. At the end is teaching crybaby (or people) it’s not her fault and people have to teach the boys to just keep it in their pants.

I think the same because in the song it says"boys saying it's my fault,it's my fault cause I put iceing on top know the boys want a taste of the strawberry shortcake".is to blame girls and to touch them in any way they can like it's their property and cry baby is trying to show it and stop it cause girls always can get blamed for when they show skin it's not our problem if we want to we want.

She is telling women that they need to stand up to men and the next time they try to do bad things to them tell the men to stop.

It is about how the world treats women. When she says “feeling unsure of my naked body” she means some girls are insecure about how the look. “It's my fault because I put icing on the top now the boys want a taste of the strawberry shortcake” saying that girls get blamed by others when they are inappropriately touched by someone such as “ your skirt shouldn’t have been that short”. She is standing up for equal rights.
