If there's one thing that we are 100% here for in the year 2k16, it's girls proudly standing up for themselves – and each other! Whether it's fighting back against body-shaming, or making their voices heard to assert that women shouldn't be objectified, so many stars have gotten vocal about really important topics on social media.
The latest girl power moment to go down on Twitter was sparked by a really unfortunate round of comments that Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast Simone Biles spotted. The athlete tweeted out some of her latest stunning vacation photos, and although she looks incredible in each and every snap, a ton of haters took to their own accounts to criticize her petite frame and muscular physique.
Luckily, Simone knows she's fierce, and handled all the hullabaloo with a graceful tweet that lets the world know why she has zero issues with her body's appearance – and why no one else should either.
you all can judge my body all you want, but at the end of the day it's MY body. I love it & I'm comfortable in my skin 🖤— Simone Biles (@Simone_Biles) December 28, 2016
"You can judge my body all you want, but at the end of the day it's MY body," she stressed in her post. Could there be truer words than that out there?
So many people defended Simone against the judgmental body-shamers, but one of our fave body peace motivators, Kira Kosarin, shared her own inspiring words with a quote tweet of her own.
"That body can do athletic things most people can only dream of," Kira tweeted. Our thoughts exactly! No one should have to defend their body's shape or size from anyone, but if you've ever seen Simone hit the vault or do a gymnastics floor routine, you know that she's powerful, and unstoppable.
