There has been a lot of fat shaming and “concern trolls” in the media this past week. Megyn Kelly and the Fit Mom sounded off on Megyn’s show. The whole world was on a rampage shaming Donald Trump this past week after he had his health evaluation by his doctor. (Body Shaming is never ok, no matter how you feel about a person or their politics.)
One beautiful woman kicked off our “REGULAR WOMAN CAMPAIGN” in 2013. A beautiful woman had the idea that started our “Regular Woman” campaign back in 2013. She sent me an email and told me what she had in mind. Her idea was to share a photo of herself in her undies to show other women what a “regular” woman looks like in lingerie. She is a long time customer and she was following our page and saw all of the trepidation from our followers on Facebook about buying lingerie . (She prefers I do not use that photo in my blog, but some of you may remember her gorgeous smile and her pick bra and undies that kicked off the whole movement.)
She and I both did this to create compassion and empathy. We are bombarded daily with images of “6 Pack Abs” and some sort of diet or cleanse. The diet industry is all about making us smaller. I mean, how could we possibly be FAT and happy? FAT and healthy? FAT and sexy? FAT and having lots of sex. FAT and deserving of love, respect and dignity?
Well, we are going to show you how. Just like my beautiful friends Sarah and Saucye here – we are going to do it again! Share your Selfie! Find your sexiest photo in lingerie, bathing suit, bra and undies….. any photo that you think is sexy – share it. (No nips or lips, though.)
Let’s show the world HOW IT’S DONE! And, we want you to use the hashtag #yeswedare. If you like, you can also use a second hashtag we love that was created by one of our Curvy Girl Cover Girls Saucye West. She is the creator of the #fatandfree movement. If you want, you can put the two hash tags on our pic or just put it in the comments. And, you can do this for Facebook and Instagram, too. Just be sure to use the hashtag #YesWeDare …. because F&ck the haters and we are allowed to exist in fat bodies. We are allowed to be sexy and dress provocatively like everyone else. We are sexy. We are hot. We are not going anywhere. YES WE DARE !!!!
Be sure to share you SELFIES here:
