Hoo boy, nothing makes me angrier than random people on the Internet deciding what woman should wear.
That's why this awesome lady, Sara Petty, is my new hero. Sara is a 20-year-old college student at Bowling Green State University who decided to shut down body shaming with some awesome selfies.
Sara told Huffington Post she noticed someone tweeting that "If you're 200 pounds, maybe a bikini isn't for you." Ummm, bitch, what? Who died and made you queen of catty judgement land?
Then, Sara started searching Twitter and found lots of other people were decreeing what 200-pound girls couldn't do. And what's sad is most of them came from fellow women — ladies, c'mon! We've got enough sh*t to deal with without going after each other like this.
The tweets weren't directed specifically at Sara herself, but she still flawlessly confronted the hate with four photos.
Ladies, take it from Sara: We can wear whatever the hell we want.
Sara straight up slays in a bikini, and so do you.
If you think she's not "pulling it off," you need your eyes checked, my friend.
Yesssss Sara, rock those booty shorts!
Seriously, she's stunning. Haters can STFU now, thanks!
In an interview with Huffington Post, Sara said,
I also hope that girls are able to separate who they are from the number that shows up on the scale, and realize there is no number, high or low, that dictates if you're worthy of feeling beautiful. Body-shaming will probably always be there in some way, but I hope my post helps at least some women feel beautiful in spite of it.
Nicely put, Sara. Thanks for putting these ignorant people in their place.
