Look, we get it. You’ve been working out a lot, posting #fitfam Instagrams from the gym and doing lots of squats. Your [insert peach emoji here] is looking top-notch, and you think, “Man, I wish it was socially acceptable to show this to the world.”
Well, meet Courtney Ann. She’s a Fort Worth mom also known as @texasthighs on Instagram, and her booty has more than 381,000 fans, including Dez Bryant and other high-profile celebs.
Courtney, who doesn’t share her last name for obvious reasons, told the Dallas Observer the account started as a dare -- she was doing squats after putting her daughters to bed one night, and her husband snapped a photo. They posted it online, and her online following grew by 15,000 people in just the first month.
She told the Observer she received some backlash from family members who didn’t approve:
"It wasn't meant to be anything sexual or anything,” she says. “It was meant to be fun and positive. I try to keep everything on my page about being happy or positive or grateful or chasing goals, whether it's physical or mental. So it was interesting when I did start getting a lot of, ‘You're a mom; you’re too old to be doing this.’ I would think about famous moms who do sexy stuff or whatever and have fun with embracing their woman inside, so why are they the only ones who get to do it? If you work out and work hard, why can't you embrace yourself too?”
She said she receives plenty of rude comments about her posts, and many users flag her photos to Instagram, but the type of content she’s posting skates along the line of the social networking site’s community guidelines, but doesn’t seem to violate it. The guidelines state nudity isn’t allowed, but this only includes “photos, videos, and some digitally-created content that show sexual intercourse, genitals, and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks. It also includes some photos of female nipples, but photos of post-mastectomy scarring and women actively breastfeeding are allowed."
Courtney said her account was suspended once, but the site later apologized, saying it was a mistake.
And her husband stands beside her -- he takes most of her photos, and he even goes by @mrtexasthighs on Instagram.
