For wearing THIS!

Body policing and unattainable physical standards are something that everyone, women and men alike, have had to deal with for centuries. There is often one ideal form of beauty that can boil down to body types, skin tones, and physical features that simply aren’t attainable to everyone, nor should they be. Recent movements have been pushing to disband such standards, and social media has played a significant role in doing so. But when this teenager was kicked out of her school classroom due to her size, it proved that there’s still a long way to go when it comes to social standards.

Luckily, she had a strong woman in her corner: her mother. Her post in response to the school’s decision has gone viral and is bringing awareness to the unfairness of these standards.
