A few days ago, we reported on Playboy model Dani Mathers who posted body shaming photo of a nude woman in a locker room, together with the caption: “If I can’t unseen this then you can’t either.”

This was obviously appalling, but no one is more outraged than Christine Blackmon, who’s currently struggling with the changes in her own body.

And then, Christine went and actually did something about her grievance. She decided to share a nude photo of herself taken by her husband in a locker room after a workout session, with a message directly aimed at Mathers.

In the message she talks about the “lumps and bumps” in her body, and how insecure she used to feel about them, but how her husband “thinks it’s beautiful.” And how, ultimately, it is.

She goes on to call out Mathers for unfairly treating her fellow gym-goer, who was simply there to better herself and her body. “Here’s the deal- you may have been a Playboy model but not all of us work out to be “hot”, some of us work out simply to honor the bodies we were given. That’s all that woman was trying to do and you violated her.”

This was the most hard-hitting part of what Blackmon had to say: “I bet I could get 100s of women to post their beautiful bodies and regardless of size, shape or color, they will ALL be more beautiful than the ugliness you showed in that post.”

Blackmon’s impassioned post has received thousands of comments, so it’s clear that women everywhere are connecting with her positive message and her stance on body shaming. Blackmon is one of many women who are fighting against it on social media, so the end is near.
