This Mumbai Woman’s Body-Positive Message Is Something You Cannot Miss Today!

She is a plus-sized woman. She wears a turban. And she’s a feminist. Also, she has no time to care about people pigeonholing her into tired old stereotypes.

People are hailing a post published on the Facebook page of Humans of Bombay, featuring a woman who describes how she lives her life to the fullest without ascribing to stereotypes that are largely accepted by society, which are detrimental in actuality. She says she gets stared at a lot because of her outward appearance, especially her turban (she is part of the Sikh community called Khalsa) but she simply does not care.

In the post, she declares: “People are so quick to judge passed on an outer appearance, but I feel comfortable in my skin — I feel happy and beautiful regardless of what I look from the outside and that’s the message. People will always find reason’s to judge you, but if you’re happy and content with yourself — none of those judgements will matter.”

Her empowering message has been widely appreciated by thousands. People are commending her for spreading a message that is body positive as well as one that empowers women. One person wrote, “Note all the people feeling inferior about themselves in any way, take note from this lady. You all are wonderful, beautiful, amazing, smart and powerful.”

I get stared at a lot, people nudge one another to look at me and so many times they laugh all because I’m wearing a turban on my head and it’s not a ‘woman’ thing to do. People are so quick to judge passed on an outer appearance, but I feel comfortable in my skin — I feel happy and beautiful regardless of what I look from the outside and that’s the message. People will always find reason’s to judge you, but if you’re happy and content with yourself — none of those judgements will matter.”
