The #Fatkini hashtag is sweeping through social media sites like Instagram and Twitter, encouraging plus-sized people to share their larger than life bikini photos. Why should skinny girls have all the fun when everyone can show off their bods in bikinis?
While #Fatkini is being embraced by the “body positive community” and those who want to encourage larger women to have high self-esteem, others have been more of a fat-meany. Commenters gonna comment:
I never understood why guys react this way. They are depriving themselves of a whole plethora of ladies out there who would probably be a lot more fun than Kate Upton.
OK, Kate Upton is probably a lot of fun.
Group A: “You Go Girl!”
Group A will embrace the self-empowering movement of wearing a bikini no matter what the size waistline you have. If you learn to love yourself, you will learn to love others and the world will be a better place for all of us to share. The Hippies have won.
Group B: “I Don’t Need To See That!”
Group B will make disparaging, mean, nasty comments about the weight of the individuals sharing their #Fatkinis. This may be in an attempt to make themselves feel better about their own shortcomings, terrible childhoods, and/or small penises. Or they just really, really hate fat chicks.
Group C will be waaay to into #Fatkini and will follow all of these hot, lovely ladies on Instagram:
