#truth. Why the world needs more grrrls and more love.

I posted this photo on Twitter and in under 24 hours it got 6,500 likes and 2,700 retweets and guess what? 75% of the mentions and retweets were from males hating on my body. I made the caption "Confidence is sexy" and these were some of the comments (made from males) - "Confidence is sexy? So is cardio", "Did you get mauled by a tiger? Wtf happened to your stomach?", "Disgusting", "Looking at this made me want to throw up", "No, this is not confidence this is ugly" and "Look, an obese Adam Family member". The funny thing is, even though they hated on my photos, they still retweeted them / gave them attention.
I've been using social media since I was 14, so I've learned to not let negative, rude comments about me / my body get to me. But wow, I cannot believe that people can be that rude. And males wonder why woman need feminism so much....? Hating on someone / bringing people down because of their appearance makes you a shitty person, period. This is what I've learned- people only hate on other people because those people have what this person wants.. People who hate on people will disagree with this but when it comes down to it, it's the truth. I'm not going to apologize for being confident. Last time I checked, confidence IS a good thing and it IS sexy. It's sad that people get offended by a strong, confident woman who loves herself. And; I'm so sorry that society has ruined your minds and outlook on beauty, making it so you only think you can think a certain body type is considered 'attractive'. I hate to break it to you but we aren't photoshopped in real life (if you can't look in the mirror and realize that, you have another thing coming). EVERY ONE OF US WOMAN (and men) have stretch marks, cellulite and fat - which are all NATURAL 'flaws'. If you think we're all photoshopped like the woman in magazines that you drool over, you're sadly mistaken. We have flaws and we're all hot. Deal with it. I want to ask one thing to the people who hate on me and my body - Why does my confidence offend you? Is it really that scary?

A shout out to all our grrrl moms. Raising our next gen grrrls to take over the world with love, kindness and a kickass attitude. There should be no boundaries for them.
And we are so grateful for you showing them the way.
They can only be what they can see.
Thank you grrrls.
Have a scan of the major fitnesswear brands and the images they promote. You will be shocked by what you see. You'd be forgiven for thinking that beauty was related to one or, maybe at the most, two different body types.
We call bullshit.
Not only does beauty come in millions and millions of shapes and sizes.... We are ABSOLUTELY sick of the damage done by the constant misrepresentation of 2% of us to define the concept for the rest of us. It's this kind of bullshit that is the reason why 40% of 3 year old girls want a different body shape.
Every single one of us is beautiful in our own diverse... wonderful... amazing.... unique way.
Beauty is one size fits all. End of.
Go ahead. Try and stop us.
We aren't supposed to be ambitious.
We’re supposed to accept our place, take up as little space as possible, be thankful for what little room we’re allowed, and absolutely never make waves in case we're seen as pushy... aggressive... unfeminine.... ambitious, difficult, ball-busting women.
But we call bullshit.
The world is changing so fast and, if you are reading this... u are at the front of that change grrrls.
So get out there today and just go for it. Do it. Take it. Ask for it. Because there's thousands and thousands of women at your shoulder roaring: Yasssssss queeen get it!!!! We call them the grrrl army.
