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.

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.

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.

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.

Ironically, one of the most common couple problems to have in the year after childbirth is, he wants to have sex with her, she doesn't want anything to do with it. And if the couple splits up, the easiest thing in the world for a woman to find is sex. Heck, even with the flabbiest tummy and stretch marks, she could probably charge for it. This obsession with female body image and feeling sexy is ridiculous.

So getting knocked up is a heroic endeavor.

Tanis? Maybe her mom was a dragonlance fan.

The only thing worse than fat people walking around half-naked in public is fat, stupid women who think they did the world a favor by shiatting out some kids.

Posts like hers only makes me want to be more of a dick when I am out and about.

The use of social shaming by what passes for 'working woman' feminism on the internet is pretty lame.

Trolls will always exist, making a blog about it does not make you more classy.

For the record I believe in equality, and feminism that that is not inspired from the pages of tumblr can be a very positive thing.

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.


The same can be said for the Fark mod who approved this submission.

I think part of the problem is that men have been taught this 'man up' ethic.  While some women have been given this set of humble ethos, many have not.

If a man gets told he is ugly on the beach, he sucks it up.  He has been socially trained to do this.
If a woman with a tumblr feminist mentality gets told she is ugly on the beach, she blogs about it.  Because life should be more fair for her.

More interesting to me: Why did anyone have to comment on her body to her?

Honestly, we all have seen more unattractive flesh at other beaches, but did you go up to a complete stranger and say, "Ma'am, you are UGLY!" or, "Sir, you are disgusting and need to wear board shorts."  Probably not.  Everyone's free to think what they want, but most people over the age of 12 are capable of applying simple criteria to speech:

Is it true?
Is it necessary?
Is it kind?

It's sad that someone made you feel bad.

But it's not sad that you feel the need to get on a soapbox and be an attention whore about it.

Your best recourse would be to grow a spine (not too hard...technically you've grown five already) and actually talk TO the person rather than revel in the fact that you felt slighted and took to the interwebs in an attempt to make you feel special.

Tragically the lesson here will likely be ingrained upon her kids and thus comes a generation actively seeking, at every second, some small thing for which they can climb on top of and claim they are being given less than fair treatment for while the rest of the world continues on doing what needs to be done.

You're not special because you had kids.  You can be special if you raise them to do good in this world.  And part of that is by not festering in a passive aggressive behavior pattern and go and talk to the person who you felt slighted you and tell them to fark off.  That way your kids get to see what being an active participant in making the world a better place is, the person who was rude gets to understand that they were out of line and the internet doesn't have to pretend to care about another person who "needs" to be a celeb for five seconds.

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 11:27:13 AM  
Thank you! So far, I've been among the lucky few to have avoided stretch marks during my pregnancy (though I've still got 5-6 weeks to go so we'll see) but my mom/sister/friends all wound up with them when they had their babies. My (traumatic "classic" c-section) birth left a terrible scar on my mom that has haunted her self esteem since her early 20's when she had me. To go from having a "perfect", beautiful body to one that now sprouts hair in random places, deposits fat in new and different places than before, and leaves large, red marks on your skin is very hard on a lot of women, especially young ones who never imagined that their bodies would be so "ruined" by childbirth. We shouldn't make women feel bad or self conscious about these things, especially since they are mostly beyond our control. Granted they may not be the prettiest things to look at but they ARE a result of a great sacrifice; a sacrifice that resulted in the creation and birth of a little person! What a shame that people would actually find it appropriate to mock and tease a woman for these things. It's already hard enough on her, knowing that her body is no longer "ideal" or "beautiful" to some; there is no need to go out of one's way to make her feel worse about it.

So yeah, it may not be "newsworthy" but this story is uplifting and affirming...especially for those who have experienced something similar. To know that not everyone does find your body "ugly" or "gross" feels good; maybe that's the kind of affirmation someone needs to feel comfortable enough in their own body to brave the masses and hit the gym or pool without feeling as though they're going to be harshly judged for their appearance.

And honestly, I just think "good for this lady" because if her experience makes others feel better about themselves as well, then what bad can there be to say about it? She could have just left and cried about it and done nothing, but she didn't; she stood up for herself and other women like her and gave lots of others something to think about the next time they see a belly covered in stretch marks.

Cocoa butter only helps to reduce the visibility of the scars; it will not prevent them. Basically the only thing that determines whether or not you'll get them is the natural elasticity of one's skin.

Sure, sure - digital age - but about the first thing we taught him was the concept of privacy and personal space, even in public. It meshed rather well with potty training and knocking on that closed door.

We've all become somewhat more rude and uncaring - which is helping fuel the most stupid blogs

Zombalupagus: Stretch marks, while unattractive, are the scars left from a noble sacrifice.


I got my stretch marks when I went through puberty and the T&A expanded. What an incredibly noble sacrifice on my part!

seapig: So yeah, it may not be "newsworthy" but this story is uplifting and affirming...especially for those who have experienced something similar. To know that not everyone does find your body "ugly" or "gross" feels good; maybe that's the kind of affirmation someone needs to feel comfortable enough in their own body to brave the masses and hit the gym or pool without feeling as though they're going to be harshly judged for their appearance.

And honestly, I just think "good for this lady" because if her experience makes others feel better about themselves as well, then what bad can there be to say about it? She could have just left and cried about it and done nothing, but she didn't; she stood up for herself and other women like her and gave lots of others something to think about the next time they see a belly covered in stretch marks.


A couple of points:

1. I'm somewhat skeptical that an obviously insincere "you look beautiful" comment from a handful of people is going to accomplish a whole lot with respect to improving self esteem.
2. This lady didn't "stand up for herself". She left, cried about it, and posted a self-indulgent, narcissistic, passive aggressive comment on Facebook that the people who mocked her will never read. This is worse than doing nothing.

Nogale: she has the right to wear a bathing suit on the beach without having her picture taken


I suppose if it were a private beach.

You have zero right to privacy in public, so as a matter of fact, while what the imaginary bullies from her post did was inappropriate and creepy, they had every right to do so.

holy shiat, I had to go look at the actual article.

"I'm sorry if my 33 year old, [56 kilogram body] offended you so much that you felt that pointing, laughing, and pretending to kick me.
"But I'll have you know that as I looked at your "perfect" young bodies, I could only think to myself 'what great and amazing feat has YOUR body done?'.
"I'll also have you know that I held my head high, unflinching as you mocked me, pretending that what you said and did had no effect on me; but I cried in the car on the drive home."

Honey, most women can have babies. A lot of us can have babies when we don't even want to have babies. And even more of us than that can have ugly, out-of-shape, stretch-marked bodies. You aren't really all that. You aren't even really much of anything. Either suck it up and ignore people or go put on a bigger bathing suit.

baconbeard,

Well, you'd be surprised in regard to #1. As I'm sure you know, there are plenty of people who tie their self esteem directly to their Facebook "likes" and comments. And some people just don't have friends IRL, so those random internet folks are all they got. As much as it pains me to say this, my mom is one of those people. She doesn't have any friends (probably because she's a sociopath that drives most sane people away) but she absolutely LIVES for those internet comments on her blog and Facebook page. And conversely, the bad ones leave her fuming or depressed.

As for #2 I'll concede that she didn't directly address the person or persons who made the comments to her, and as such she probably isn't going to make much of an impact on them going forward. They'll probably never see her post and think "gee, maybe I was being a dick"...so yeah, if it were me, I would have said something right then and there and then there would have been no need to post online about it. But the situation obviously bothered her and I just don't think going onto one's own Facebook to recount an event and respond with your feelings and thoughts on the matter is her being an AW. Now, if she was the one who felt the need to alert the media and blow this thing up this big, then yeah, my opinion would change a bit. But I have a feeling that the reason this became "news" isn't due to anything she did personally; someone else probably saw it, thought "wow, others should see/read this as well" and started sharing until it got to where it is now...

Except that it misses the point that she stood up after the fact, in way that effectively guarantees that the people who mocked her, will never see it. Her stance now comes off as 'look at me'-ism. Moreover, the story leaves out some details so the credibility of her narrative is somewhat in question. First off, that fat shaming comes before the stretch marks makes me wonder if she broke the 'Just because it comes in my size doesn't mean I should wear it' rule. Secondly, the people who mocked her were...who? And how? Was it a sidelong glance that she interpreted in a negative way or did someone come up to her and point?)

Notice how no event or description is included. This makes me go through a mental checklist. If the offence is described effectively in the third person, with political/social statements being the core of offence rather than actual events, my bullsh*t detector goes off.

This is not to say that there isn't an important discussion to have about these and related issues but lacking details, you can't fault people for interpreting this story as look-at-me-ism.

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.

The same can be said for the Fark mod who approved this submission.

But its not news, it's Fark, a place to troll and snark and post meme pictures.

You'd be correct - add to that her dad's similar assumptions and the jealousy of other girls - ah well - we all survive the crucible of school and only some of us revert back to "no, you!" on facebook like the fertile femme in TFA

This was my thought. Every woman I know with stretch marks didn`t apply the oil when stretching out. All the ones that did (including my GF) have no marks at all.

I see stretch marks as a sign of being a bit ignorant about how to look after yourself.

Now someone with a less than ideal view of how to look after themselves is looking after 5 other people (or claiming to while sunbathing instead)

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.

/just my take on things
//and if you're curious - I'm male


Nobody is criticizing stretch marks. They are criticizing her reaction to being made fun of by some tweens. Instead of having actual courage and telling them to Fark off, she cries about it in the car and then it's brave on facebook.


I find it interesting though, that society (and maybe even the same women who biatch about body shaming) finds it perfectly acceptable to tell a fat, wrinkly, hairy guy that he looks gross in Speedos.

Meh. Good for her. We can't all be celebrity-surgery-perfect after having little ones. I sure as hell don't have the nerve to wear anything showing more than a short-sleeved rash guard and boyshorts/boardshorts when I go to the beach, and I've only had 2 kids, but can't get rid of the loosened skin around my midsection, no matter how much exercise/cardio/excellent nutrition. You can't exercise away scars and loose flesh and severed abdominal muscles so you may as well live with it unless you can afford the surgeries to fix it. If she's not ashamed, then she's braver in public than I'll ever be.

.....The late great Bill Hicks did a great bit on the 'miracle' of childbirth. I'm paraphrasing, but basically it's "If it's a fu*king miracle, why does it happen a million times a day?"

paraphrasing ; not even close Bill Hicks didn't say it that way but anyway from World Pop Clock "Every day in 1997, about 365,000 babies were born."

More of a badge of "I was too lazy to apply cocoa butter during pregnancy" but I guess if you want to to all Purple Heart on her ass, it's your prerogative.

This was my thought. Every woman I know with stretch marks didn`t apply the oil when stretching out. All the ones that did (including my GF) have no marks at all.

I see stretch marks as a sign of being a bit ignorant about how to look after yourself.

Now someone with a less than ideal view of how to look after themselves is looking after 5 other people (or claiming to while sunbathing instead)


Cocoa butter is no better than placebo, apparently.

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.


Threadjack:
Reminds me--last night was the last live run of Real Time with Bill Maher (they take August off), and in preparation, Bill did a piece where he used his prescient abilities to forecast newsworthy events while he's off the air. "Royal baby does things all babies do." "Thousands sickened on Carnival Cruise ship." And my favorite, "Malaysia Airlines lands one."

It must be a southern thing.  That would not work so well in northern Wisconsin.


Actually, I think it's a "you live in a hot place" thing.  I just remembered that my locker in Kuwait was also outside as well as in Florida.   I'm pretty sure NJ had indoor lockers but I was too young to have one when I lived there.

baconbeard: seapig: So yeah, it may not be "newsworthy" but this story is uplifting and affirming...especially for those who have experienced something similar. To know that not everyone does find your body "ugly" or "gross" feels good; maybe that's the kind of affirmation someone needs to feel comfortable enough in their own body to brave the masses and hit the gym or pool without feeling as though they're going to be harshly judged for their appearance.

And honestly, I just think "good for this lady" because if her experience makes others feel better about themselves as well, then what bad can there be to say about it? She could have just left and cried about it and done nothing, but she didn't; she stood up for herself and other women like her and gave lots of others something to think about the next time they see a belly covered in stretch marks.

A couple of points:

1. I'm somewhat skeptical that an obviously insincere "you look beautiful" comment from a handful of people is going to accomplish a whole lot with respect to improving self esteem.
2. This lady didn't "stand up for herself". She left, cried about it, and posted a self-indulgent, narcissistic, passive aggressive comment on Facebook that the people who mocked her will never read. This is worse than doing nothing.


1. Considering how many people use Facebook to phish for compliments and boost their self-esteem, I'm sure those comments were exactly what she was looking for.
2. Yup.

You see, that's the thing; you know your body, and what is acceptable wear for it. I guess you could say she's brave, but maybe not very smart. If you want to wear things not appropriate for your body type, then don't be shocked when you get negative reactions.

I did and still got marks. Afterwords I found out Vitamin E works better.  I'm not suprised though, I mean I'm 4' 11" where is that sucker supposed to go.  I was freaking huge and had massive water retention.   Honestly, I hated being pregnant.  Just hated it.  Constantly sick, sweating and waddling around.  I was not one of those glowing women.

I'm wondering why the woman feels compelled to tan the ugliest part of her body.  All tanning does is damage your skin further while putting a little finish on features you want to show off.

If you're going to show off something ugly, don't be surprised when people react like you're showing off something ugly.  There's a time and a place for the "hey, check out my cool scar" kind of showing off, but maybe the beach isn't it.

I similarly avoid waking around shirtless outside in the summer because I just don't think the world wants to see my hairy man boobs.

office_despot: More interesting to me: Why did anyone have to comment on her body to her?

Honestly, we all have seen more unattractive flesh at other beaches, but did you go up to a complete stranger and say, "Ma'am, you are UGLY!" or, "Sir, you are disgusting and need to wear board shorts."  Probably not.  Everyone's free to think what they want, but most people over the age of 12 are capable of applying simple criteria to speech:

Is it true?
Is it necessary?
Is it kind?


They probably didn't comment at all. I imagine she was self conscience and perceived what people were thinking because of their body language. People love to hang out in crowds, but rarely talk to others outside their group. Very large groups of total strangers rarely talk to each other. Even small groups, like elevators or check out lines rarely talk more than a few words.  I bet her facebook friends were just happy to see her get off the subject of crotch gobblins for once, even if the subject was somewhat related to her kids.

 You're proclivity towards stretch marks is, like most things, genetic. Stretch marks can very rarely be prevented.   Cocoa butter doesn't prevent stretch marks:   http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9A0DEFDD1F39F936A2575A C 0A96F9C8B63

The way i figure it, either a person DOES want to see my hairy man boobs or a person DOES NOT want to see my hairy man boobs.  And both are good reasons to wear a shirt.

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.


Exactly this. One trip to the average beach and you get an LD50 of cellulite. And 5 kids? PUT THE DICK DOWN.

As an aside, anyone who refers to pregnancy as a "miracle" needs a dopeslap and a dose of reality - that "miracle" occurred once every 8 seconds in the United States last year, according to the CDC. The "pregnancy is a miracle" canard is useful only to religious nuts worried that they're not outbreeding their perceived competition. It's not a "miracle" - it's simply a fact of life.

I'd much prefer that the kids making fun of her didn't breed - they wouldn't spit out more casual sociopaths, and we don't get folks with five kids and no sense making shiat up on Facebook for attention.

I have a belly that looks a lot like this. Only one kid. I also own a high waisted bikini (think 50s pin up) and recently took pics on the beach. I did it face down because a. I was topless and b. That's just not attractive. I don't know why people post unflattering pics of themselves. However, I find it abhorrent that anyone would point and laugh visibly at anyone on the beach. Lots of times I whisper to my husband "OMG 12 o'clock". In Europe we probably say that every 30 seconds. But I love the body confidence Europeans have and even fat old women awe at bikinis because it is considered "more beautiful".
