These inspiring women are fighting against a body-shamer one cake slice at a time
Strong and supportive women are showing off their indulgence in some mouth-watering cake via Instagram.
When blogger Jenny Rushmore posted a sketch to her Instagram of a bathing suit she was creating last month, a body-shaming troll attempted to shut her down. Her sketch was drawn on a curvy female and the Instagram's caption sported the hashtag #BeachBodyReady.
The Insta-troll commented on the post that Rushmore should "eat less cake" if she wants a beach body. Rather than accepting the rude and hurtful comment, Rushmore fired back with a body-positive and witty post. She wrote:
"To the random jerk who fat-shamed me this morning in a comment and suggested I eat less cake: As you can see from this pic my life is just a sad mess, so I'm glad you've helped steer my dietary choices, cheers! #effyourbeautystandards #CakeWithCashmerette"
As soon as the post hit the social media-sphere, women were flocking to Instagram to show their support of the sass-packed hashtag #CakeWithCashmerette. The Instagram troll can enjoy munching on his boring celery while these beautiful and inspiring women enjoy their delicious cake with no regrets. The hashtag proves that you really can have your cake and eat it too.
