A new model – Ashley Graham

The thing about a woman’s size is that it changes, and i don’t mean through diet or age or anything like that. Our shape depends on our perception of ourselves and, unfortunately, on that of a lot of others who feel entitled to ‘‘weigh in’’ with their opinions on other people’s bodies. I’ve been told that I’m not big enough to be a voice for curvy woman. I’ve also been told that because I make ‘‘fat look cool,’’ I’m going ‘‘to kill somebody.’’ As a model who embraces social media, I know this is par for the course–but sometimes I get fed up. Ironically, one of the toughest moments for me was when I was ridiculed not for being fat but for being too thin. It came after I posted a picture of myself from the set of America’s Next Top Model. Not only did I have the confidence of a new job as a judge on the awesome TV show, but I was also wearing a killer outfit. No sooner had I posted the picture than it went viral: ‘‘You don’t love the skin you’re in, you want to conform to Hollywood. You believe being skinnier is prettier.’’
‘‘Fake fat person.’’
That’s just a tiny taste of the comments that poured into my Instagram account. I was shocked and angry. I decided to stand up for my beliefs when I thought about all the women in this world who get ridiculed for posting confident photos of themselves. When a woman feels beautiful and someone tears her down, it’s not okay.
