Body Positivity Advocate Ashley Graham Stands Tall Against Body Shaming
Ashley Graham is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to body positivity. Her career has been marked by her unwavering encouragement for her followers to embrace their true selves, regardless of their size or color. But even Ashley isn't immune to body shaming. At the TIME Person of the Year Reception in New York City last December, she was criticized for wearing a daring dress. A now-deleted tweet attacked Ashley, claiming that the "fat positivity movement is getting out of hand."
But Ashley refused to let negativity bring her down. Instead, she took to social media and posted a photo of herself in another daring outfit, issuing a challenge to her followers: "Quote tweet this with a photo of you taking 'fat positivity' too far. I'll start." Her tweet quickly went viral, inspiring women to rally together and defy society's narrow standards of beauty.
With over 147,000 likes and almost 5,000 quote tweets, Ashley's message was loud and clear: we are all beautiful in our own unique ways, and no amount of body shaming can change that. But it's not always easy to feel comfortable in our own skin. Society and social media can be harsh critics, making it a constant battle for women to appreciate themselves.
That's why women like Ashley are so important. They remind us that we don't have to conform to anyone else's idea of beauty. We can be confident and proud of who we are, no matter what. So to Ashley and all the other beautiful women out there, keep being you. And in case you haven't heard it today, you are lovely just the way you are.
Here's to Ashley and all the beautiful women out there— continue being you.
