This New Batch Of Skinny White Boys Needs A History Lesson

Skinny white guys are having a moment and their evolution has been a fascinating one to observe. What was once considered an aesthetic reserved for band geeks or goth loners has now become an aspirational archetype.

Big Dick Energy (BDE for short) isn’t a new phenomenon, it just never had a catchy name before Pete Davidson came along. There are several definitions of BDE, but ultimately it’s an energy, a spirit, a glowing aura one possesses that radiates a silent, yet powerful, confidence and tells the world you are packing. Pete didn’t invent BDE swag but he has certainly secured his legacy in pop culture history as its current leader, even inspiring a sex toy company to design a line of tattooed dildos after him.

Davidson has been likened to former playboy Warren Beatty, as the two have dated some of the most successful and beautiful women in Hollywood. Beatty famously began dating Madonna in the early '90s when they connected while filming the movie Dick Tracy. Pete, too, found love on set with a pop star queen.

Beatty and Davidson have both been praised for their bedroom skills and BDs by the women in their lives. The fact that the praises have sometimes come after the breakup, is a vital piece of how BDEs are legitimized.

In a 2015 interview with Howard Stern, Madonna said that Beatty “was an incredible lover.” Grande piqued our interest in Pete’s anatomy both during and after her relationship with Davidson. In June 2018 a (now deleted) tweet by Ariana alluded to the size of Pete’s member. Then after their breakup, Ariana released the video for “Thank U, Next” and in a scene where she's thumbing through her Mean Girls style Burn Book of exes, Pete’s page includes the caption “HUUUUUGE” on it.
