In recent years many people in social networks have been responsible for controlling the standards of beauty that we see every day, and we have shown to be perfect means having a flat stomach, a long shiny hair and clothes too expensive to anyone you can access; on the other hand, are also those who tell us that beauty is to be natural; however show pictures of supermodels using a light makeup. But did you ever wonder what happens when an ordinary girl decides to show it as it is?
Suraiya Ali is a 18 year old girl currently living in Texas, United States, and who recently published a photograph of herself in underwear to make wisecracks about the retail chain Walmart. She shared the image with the title “Vibes underwear Walmart” and seconds later was already the target of a series of comments in which, of course, some attacked her and a few others admired his courage.
A revealing picture
Suraiya appears in the photograph showing her belly and her underwear. Twitter account immediately got 11,900 followers who started making offensive remarks regarding your body hair.
Several comments were too aggressive
One girl said: “Shave please”; and more, which then removed the comment said: “Maybe instead of buying underwear at Walmart, you ought to buy a razor.” While another added: “I ended the date on which you should not shave, boo.”
Suraiya responded to comments intelligently
“Let me be hairy, flabby and sure of myself in peace.
These guys are idiots who trespass against me. I’m smart. I will not sit here and say I have a great ability to rhetoric. Being harassed and intelligent in real life is difficult, and physical aggressors simply disappear and you have to shut up. But on Twitter , men can not do anything. They can say whatever they want. This is my platform and will use it as I please.
Half of comments will ignore them, but if I can exploit this image to reach more women and make them laugh at the same time show them how to love themselves, why would not you?Do not worry, for me it means I’ll take insults and make them work for me. I’m not here to be docile, to pretend that mention me and I did not notice, especially men. We come from the same place, I will not let anything affect me. “
Other users were quick to defend
A user wrote: “Thank you for this. I always grew up with shame about my body hair. We need more women like you who love themselves and looking up. ”
Another user wrote: “I’d be so sure of my body like you”
After Suraiya thanked the people support
“Thanks for all your sweet comments. I’m not a nerd, so I do not know why they’re giving me all this attention, but I’ll accept it. “
“By any sign of hatred that I received, I also got the same amount of love back. And it’s just so worth it. I think women should get what they want. Nobody should dictate our decisions. If women want to shave, or if you want to have hair is amazing. I’m tired of seeing women are put into positions of frustration, powerlessness and helplessness about their bodies. “
