Bridget Malcolm doesn’t want to hear all the petty comments shaming her body as “too thin.”
Malcolm fired back with an Instagram photo showing off her body and proving that the conversation about women’s figures needs to change on both ends of the spectrum.
“Can we STOP with the skinny shaming please? I am extremely fit and healthy and am not in the slightest way anorexic,” she captioned the photo. “I have worked hard to look like this and am proud of my body. I may not be the curviest but I am a woman who has every right to look the way I do. Maybe today take a look inside yourself and wonder why you feel the need to shame strangers over the Internet about their bodies. Peace and love to you all – let’s change the conversation.”
In fact, take a simple scroll through Malcolm’s Instagram and you’ll find a ton of photos of the sexy model keeping herself fit.
Not that she has to prove herself to anyone.
But she’s right in saying the conversation needs to change. Rather than looking at a woman’s body and pulling down all the things we can, we should be lifting one another up.
Women have other, even more detrimental issues that we deal with on a daily basis, like the issues of equal pay and diversity on screen. We don’t need to be creating more issues by cutting one another down.
