    16 Things I Really Need To Fucking Tell Body-Shamers

    Literally never do this.

    1. You don't get to talk shit about another person's body.

    Sorry not sorry.

    2. And unless you're that person's doctor, you don't get to make assumptions about someone's health.

    Calling all internet doctors.

    3. Because what another person eats is — you guessed it — none of your business.

    4. Also, did you know that people could be working out every day and still be the size they are?

    True story: People of all sizes work out on the regs!

    5. Oh, and when someone celebrates their body, it doesn't mean that we're attacking anyone else.

    Twitter

    No, it's not "promoting obesity." It's literally just loving yourself no matter what your size is.

    6. Do you really think calling someone fat is helping them? If so, what is wrong with you?

    Calling someone fat isn't exactly the most motivational thing in the world.

    7. You have no idea what someone has been through/is going through, and guessing things based on what they look like is A+ asshole behavior.

    Seriously, you know people have DISEASES that can make them a certain size, right?

    8. Believe it or not, there are people out there who love people for who they are.

    And no, it's not because they have a certain size fetish.

    9. FYI: Jokes about someone "needing a hamburger" or being able to "miss a few meals" are a) shitty and b) not funny at all.

    10. How someone looks isn't indicative of what they're worth.

    11. Telling people they're being "too sensitive" when you're ripping into their bodies is just the worst.

    Not being too sensitive, just literally tired of people saying crap about what size jeans I happen to wear.

    12. People can wear whatever the fuck they want and don't need to ask for your permission to wear a bikini.

    13. Judging a pregnant woman's body because you think you know what's best is R-I-D-I-C-U-L-O-U-S.

    14. The fact that YOU don't like someone's body is not an important opinion to share. So don't waste your energy.

    15. Because being happy is more important than fitting into someone else's idea of beautiful.

    16. And because, again: It. Is. Not. Your. Body.
