Student Body Shamed On Social Media Fires Back

Sara Petty has a strong message for people who try to tell women what they can and can't wear -- knock it off.

After the 20-year-old Bowling Green State University student noticed a disturbing trend on Twitter of women shaming women over 200 pounds for wearing certain items of clothing, including bikinis and crop tops, she decided she'd had enough.

In the most badass four part series, Petty dons the attire many have deemed that plus-sized women "can't" wear -- lookin' fab, we might add -- and then juxtaposes photos of herself with actual mean tweets.

And guess what she found out about bikinis? SHE CAN WEAR THEM.

And crop tops? Those too.

Booty shorts? You betcha.

Leggings? You know where this is going.

Killer outfits aside, Petty was obviously trying to convey a greater message with her tweets than the fact that she has a pretty fly wardrobe.

"I hope women realize how important it is to stop tearing each other down and uplift each other," she told HuffPost. "We have a lot going against us as women, we don't need other women against us, too."

"I also hope that girls are able to separate who they are from the number that shows up on the scale, and realize there is no number, high or low, that dictates if you're worthy of feeling beautiful," she continued. "Body-shaming will probably always be there in some way, but I hope my post helps at least some women feel beautiful in spite of it."

We couldn't have said it better ourselves.
