When Kansas City woman Lexi Sinclair decided to take her four-month-old son to the pool,she rocked a bikini.Unfortunately,a fellow pool-goer decided to approach Sinclair and criticize her choice inswimwear,telling her people would feel more comfortable if she'd worn a one-piece.So Sinclair took toFacebookto share her frustration—and stand up for new moms everywhere—in a viral post.
"While [I was] putting Christian's pool hat on,a woman comes up and makes conversation with me about Christian—asking me his age,how much he weighs,how he sleeps,etc." Sinclairwrote on Facebook."She then proceeded to tell me that the men at the pool would feel more comfortable if I was in a one-piece swimsuit because abikiniisn't appropriate for a mother,especially one who's ‘still recovering.'" Sinclair then explained that anyone who knows her well would expect her to have some "words" for this woman.But instead of firing back,the new mom decided to smile andkiss her son.
"[I] told her,‘I'm proud of my body,'" Sinclair wrote."‘In just one yearI've gained 50 pounds,andlost 37.I've grown a human and given birth to a beautiful miracle.My body provided food for my child.So,no,my body might not be the best sight…to see.My stretch marks and tummy pudge might not be sexy.But they're proof that I've donesomething amazing.'" Sinclair said she ended her response with a little retort,"‘To be honest,I don't give a tiny rat's ass what other men,or a prissy twit like you,think,'" before telling the woman to have a good day.
Naturally,people have swarmed the comments section on Sinclair's Facebook post to let her know how thankful they are that she spoke out about this issue.Many Facebook userscalled her beautiful,and others praised her for the strength and honesty of her response.You go,girl.
