What Does PAWG Mean in a Text?

PAWG means "Phat Ass White Girl."

The acronym PAWG refers to an attractive girl of Caucasian origin who has a large butt. It is an extension of the term PHAT, which means "Pretty Hot and Tempting."

Of interest, PHAT is sometimes written F@. PHAT has come to mean "excellent" or "great." So, a "phat ass" is a great ass, definitely not a "fat ass."

Even though it is usually meant as a compliment, PAWG is generally considered a sexist term.
