Talented, fashionable and intelligent are just some of the words you could use to describe Christina Topacio, the blogger behind profreshstyle.com, overweight is not one of those words. But unfortunately for Christina, people are often judging her based on how they think she should look and letting her know exactly how they feel.
It was a normal day for Christina when she received a message from a man named Bruno, whom she’d never met, letting her know he had something to tell her that might make her never want to talk to him again.
She politely responded, only to be told how beautiful she was and how he’d date her. He had one catch though, “You need to f***ing lose weight. It kills me.” he wrote. Christina tweeted the exchange, including her replies and they instantly went viral.
Christina decided not to freak out as his opinions didn’t warrant an irrational response. She wanted to be proud of the way she handled it, so she calmly told him he was entitled to his own opinion. It wasn’t over then, though, Bruno kept going, informing Christina that her weight was literally the only reason he wouldn’t date her. Most of us would have lost our cool, but Christina handled it expertly and simply sent him a selfie while eating Chipotle, the photographic equivalent of ‘screw you!’
How awesome is Christina’s reply? She kept her cool and simply sent him a picture enjoying her food and looking cute doing it! We think Christina is flawless how she is and love that she’s still enjoying her Chipotle in the face of criticism about her weight. Body positivity is a huge issue for women and the first step on your path to self love is accepting yourself exactly how you are!
