Why didn't she just say that to the person's face? Does she think a random jerk from a beach is going to just spontaneously stumble upon her Facebook page without even knowing her name?

I'd be nice to know how old the perpetrators are. 13 year olds? Yawn. Kids are dicks and nothing will change that. 20 somethings or older? Good for you. But where was your husband to punch some cocks?

Stretch marks can be the sexay! They generally point to a happy place and once you get there you close your eyes and it's all good.
 
2014-08-02 10:09:18 AM  
I think she harps on about having squint out babies too much. It's like she's saying "yep, if you've had kids feel proud of your body and show it off. Those of you fatties who haven't had kids? FARK OFF!".

My efforts to battle body shaming include posting photos of my anal abscess with the word JEALOUS? under it.

Sure there are people that write "PLEASE DIE, THANKYOU" and "UNFRIENDED - by the way WHO THE HELL ARE YOU?"

But then my TRUE friends all write stuff like "You go girl!" and "Haterz gonna hate" and "Your possibly life-threating infection is what makes you you.  Don't ever change.  Well maybe change your underwear once in a while, it may help with the inflammation" and all is right in the world.

Can't unblow the balloon. She looks better than I do after fewer kids. As to where the hubby was, I bet he was watching the kids. No way does she have time to sunbathe if they're with her.

Five kids? That qualifies for 'breeder' in my book.

I ain't taking that bet.

The actual Facebook post never says that she was "mocked", it just says "I'm sorry if... it grossed you out". The MSM's just making a story out of nothing because there haven't been any recent plane crashes and those danged middle-Easterners are having a 72 hour ceasefire instead of blowing each other up, so there's nothing newsworthy to talk about.
 
2014-08-02 10:16:02 AM  
She's claiming that all 5 of her children are beautiful and intelligent. BS. Statistically one of those kids is an ugly simpleton. She doesn't have to...

2014-08-02 10:20:27 AM  
Who cares and why is this newsworthy?  Right, because this shiat (i.e., "fat-shaming" and other stupid "social justice warrior" crap) has become important now in the media.

I have an uncle that has burn marks on his chest from an accident he had when he was a kid.  He wears shirt to the pool.  He doesn't do that because he is ashamed or embarrassed about his body, he does that to make other people more comfortable when they interact with him.  He has not made a facebook post about it.

Anyone that's been to a beach recently know that this ladies stretch marks are probably the least disgusting things you would see. Just got back from cabo and the pool was a very shudder worthy experience on a daily basis.

Just because it comes in your size, doesn't mean you should wear it.
 
2014-08-02 10:21:39 AM  
I remember when people had the stones to confront people in person.

Now it's I went to the beach, dressed like a moldy old tart, a 13 year old boy raised an eyebrow at me, so I'm BEING SHAMED by the WORLD and I've taken to the internet because I'm ENTITLED to feel good about myself and it's your responsibility and I need justice because you are all WRONG so change EVERYTHING for me.

so she does have body issues to go with the poor coping skills.

I mentioned to my wife that I was surprised I did not see a single speedo. The ladies on the other hand...no shame.

Stretch marks, while unattractive, are the scars left from a noble sacrifice. They should be considered a badge of honor.

For you males out there, imagine that you must suffer an ordeal for someone you have never met. You must endure 9 months of initial change and many years of obligation. And the ordeal will leave you scarred in such a way that may leave you sexually unattractive. Would you do it? Because this is what you are asking a female to do.

THANK YOU. A normal person would have flipped off the kids who were "pointing, laughing and pretending to kick" her, which would have mortified the group enough that one of them would eventually pluck up the courage to walk up to her and say, "Excuse me ma'am, but you're sunbathing on our soccer field. See the little flags we set up? See the cones? We were all having a blast until you plopped down in the middle of our game. Ma'am, could you please look up from your phone and listen? No? Sigh. I guess we'll have to set up somewhere else then." Some people.

If I can hide my imperfections, I do. I wear board shorts over my bikini bottoms to cover my wiggly thighs
when I'm at the beach. It's only fair for everyone. If I were her, I'd wear something that would cover that tummy. There are many bathing suit styles out there. I bet she can find one that will better suit her.

When I saw that picture, I gasped in revulsion. I'm would not public shame this woman, but why would you subject people to that crap? I don't have the body to wear speedos, so you know what? I don't wear the farking things.

No one is "asking a female to do" anything. Most females I know aren't mindless incubators for their partner's sperm.

This.  It's like free speech.  If you put it out there for the world to see or hear, don't be surprised when people comment or are distracted by it.

Same goes for cleavage.

No, I'm not asking that. I can't stand kids, never want any and have taken steps to make sure it will never happen. If someone else gets baby fever and wants to go through all that, fine. But I'm not going to put them on a pedestal for it. There is nothing special about childbirth. It's something that has happen billions upon billions of times. The only reason why it's "special" is because you're genetically programmed to think of your own offspring in that way as it enhances your desire to protect and provide for them.

And as someone with a very good friend who had a girl use his used condom to impregnate herself on purpose due to the aforementioned baby fever, I really have no sympathy for the women who make the choice to have kids. It's a byproduct of your emotionally driven craziness. Deal with it and leave me out of it.

Sorry but the "I'm a mom, worship at the my feet for I have the magical ability of childbirth" tripe is just exasperating.
