    This Indian Plus Size Blogger's Response To Instagram Removing Her Swimsuit Posts Is PERFECT

    "This is me, existing as a fat Indian girl in a stereotypically skinny world."

    Aarti Olivia Dubey is a first generation, Singaporean-Indian, plus size blogger, and founder of Curves Become Her.

    Recently, she got the opportunity to be the first plus size person to have ever written an article in a fashion magazine in Singapore.

    Dubey excitedly shared this behind-the-scenes image of the shoot and it was unceremoniously taken down by Instagram.

    Seriously outraged and disturbed, Dubey went on an Instagram rant and pointed out the kind of people that should actually be banned.

    "HOW is this image being hateful, hurtful, abusive, trolling or obscene? Do 3 fat girls in swimsuits equate to gore, porn, racism, sexism? Or is it that people only want to see slim girls in swimsuits?" she wrote.

    Dubey continued to protest using the same platform, until two weeks later, Instagram restored her post citing "accidental removal" of the post.

    "This is me, existing as a fat Indian girl in a stereotypically skinny Asian world," says Dubey.

    But nothing's going to stop this beauty. "There is a lot of shame and hiding behind the shadows as a plus sized person. Reclaiming that shame in order to have fun with fashion and finally wear outfits that I love, has been life changing," she said.

    "Being at ease with yourself and enjoying a jaunt to the pool should not be controversial. Life is far too short to be worrying about what people might say," she concluded.
