This New Mom Had No Time For A Woman Who Tried To Shame Her For Wearing A Bikini

Old people are the best and other times they’re about as horrible as when Popeyes runs out of spicy chicken. What with their archaic and irrelevant opinions about things from politics to whether or not sexually liberated women can wear white on their wedding day. Or, like one biddy who felt that a new mom had absolutely no business wearing a bikini to the pool.

Somehow, Lexi Sinclair was able to remain cool and calm when a woman in her mid-50s approached her under the guise of wanting to know more about her 4-month-old son, Christian. However, she was really there on a shaming mission. Lexi made a Facebook post about the incident and said the woman asked her all kinds of questions about her son before blindsiding her with her unsolicited, slut-shaming suggestion.

“She proceeded to tell me that the men at the pool would feel more comfortable if I was in a one-piece swimsuit because a bikini isn’t appropriate for a mother, especially one who’s “still recovering,” the woman allegedly told her. Rather than pushing her into the pool, Lexi kept her composure and informed the rude woman that she was proud of her battle scars — pouch and all, writing on Facebook:

“I’m proud of my body. In just one year I’ve gained 50 pounds, and lost 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 for other men to see. My stretch marks and tummy pudge might not be sexy. But they’re proof that I’ve done something amazing, and I have a man that loves me and finds me even sexier and more beautiful now. To be honest, I don’t give a tiny rat’s ass what other men, or a prissy twit like you think. Have a nice day though.”

Still think “accidentally” pushing that “prissy twit” into the pool would’ve been a great response.
