Bullying has become a huge problem in today’s culture, where we tear each other down far more than we build each other up. The internet can embolden these bullies as it provides them with anonymity.
Youtube star LoeyLane, a proud plus-sized woman, recently confronted the issue of bullying head-on when she addressed the negative feedback she receives when she posts videos of herself in bikinis.
“The first thing I’m told a lot…is that bikinis don’t look good on bigger girls,” LoeyLane said in her video Fat Girls Shouldn’t Wear Bikinis. “Hmmm, I’m going to have to disagree.”
“I didn’t realize there was a meeting of all of the people who are allowed to come in and decide what was attractive and what was not are now commenters on YouTube,” she continued with sarcasm.
In the video below, she shares many of the harsh comments she receives from people who view her videos, and many of them are downright disturbing. It’s unreal how rude and mean people can be. They must think they will feel better about themselves by ripping someone else down. But, those haters aren’t going to win against Loey!
Loey’s body positive message has resonated with a lot of people. Her video has amassed over 13 million views and she now has over 1.2 million subscribers! She isn’t afraid to address the haters head on. They don’t harm her self-confidence. She knows that she is gorgeous!
Loey regularly updates her YouTube channel with videos of her trying on clothes and even swimwear. She wants others to be comfortable in their own skin. Don’t give anyone the power to change how you feel about yourself!
We applaud LoeyLane for having the courage to come forward, and for encouraging other women to love themselves!
Share this if you support anyone’s right to love themselves!
