This week in Girl Power we take a look at Christine Blackmon, a self-loving Mom who is taking on Dani Mathers, the body-shaming Playboy model!
When Christine Blackmon saw on the news that Dani Mathers, a Playboy model, posted a body-shaming, nude photo of a fellow gym-goer to Snapchat, she was appalled. Struggling with her own weight and body image after coming back from knee surgery, she took to her Facebook community, Delicate Flower, to express how she really felt about the entire thing.
Blackmon decided to share a candid nude photo taken by her husband, with these words for Dani Mathers:
"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. Shame on you."
Christine’s post has been shared thousands of times, with thousands of women adding comments and their own photos showing their “real women’s” bodies.
She’s inspiring women to be proud of how they look despite the body shaming sweeping the internet. That’s why Christine Blackmon is this week’s Girl Power!
