This is a link to a news item about a man who posted a photo of a woman on Reddit so he and his friends could make fun of her and her response to him.

I am thinking about this and it fits in with the theme I've been thinking about for my next blog but I wanted to share it right away.

As part of my health goals, I include a healthy relationship with my body. This woman inspires me.

    At least the fellow had the grace to apologize for being a colossal ass hat.
That she is so at peace with her body just as it is majorly different from the general attitude of women here abouts. But I will bet there are moments when she has to fight the frustration of not being able to look more feminine. It means being different from the average people and that is socially not accepted, so she must have faced this situation many times already. She is a wonderful person to be inspired by

  Thankyou! She is amazing - and her way of dealing with the "cyber bullying" by not accusing or confronting just explaining is so inspiring. This should become compulsory reading in all schools....

    Hi Liz. Very interesting. While I agree that it is our inner beauty that is most important as I woman I wouldn't want to look like a man. I honestly don't know anything about her culture and religion but if what she said is honest more power to her for being totally as nature intended her to look like emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon . Thank you for opening my eyes also. . .
