Jessi blev svinet for sine 'fede lår' på Instagram: Her er hendes geniale svarJessi blev svinet for sine 'fede lår' på Instagram: Her er hendes geniale svar

En personlig træner, der prædiker kropsaccept på Instagram, havde det perfekte modtræk til en kritiker, der svinede hende for hendes appelsinhud.

Jessi Kneeland nægtede at lade sig kue, da en følger svinede hendes lår og kaldte dem for fede. Det skriver britiske Metro. Hun er kendt for at kæmpe for at give kvinder et godt forhold til sin krop, og denne gang skuffede hun ikke sine følgere.

- Ligegyldigt, hvordan du ser på det, så er det at have usundt kropsfedt, som det der ikke naturligt. Det er fordi, du spiser, eller har spist lortemad, og din krop har lagret det! Stop med at spise lortemad og forbrænd flere kalorier end du stopper i ansigtet, så vil det forsvinde!, skrev brugeren leeroywowwee på det sociale medie Instagram.

I stedet for at tage kritikken for nært, så valgte den personlige træner, der blandt andet tjener penge på at råde folk til, hvad de skal spise og hvordan de skal træne, at sætte tingene lidt i relief for den spydige kommentar.

'Billedet her blev taget her til morgen. Beklager makker, jeg vidste ikke, at jeg havde fået appelsinhud fordi, at jeg simpelthen er ALT FOR FED!!'

Hun understregede, at appelsinhud ikke hænger sammen med, hvordan man spiser. Det er helt naturligt. Faktisk havde hun et særligt navn til det.

'Nå hej med dig, så du har set mit 'flotte fedt,' begyndte hun svaret og tilføjede:

'Det er de her fine smilehuller langs bagsiden af mine ben og min rumpe. Nogle tror, at det er 'dårligt fedt' og vil prøve at overbevise dig om, at du skal prøve at komme af med det, men vi ved bedre.'

Herefter understregede hun, at hudfænomenet er helt naturligt. Ifølge det britiske medie Metro er det noget, som 95 procent af alle kvinder kommer til at opleve.

'Flot fedt er bare naturlig, indbygget udsmykning. (Eller det er i hvert fald sådan jeg vælger at se på det.)'

Oh hey there, have you met my fancy fat? It's these pretty dimples along the back of my legs and butt. Some people think fancy fat is "bad," and will try to convince you to get rid of yours, but we know better. Fancy fat is just a natural, healthy, built-in decoration. (Or at least that's how I choose to see it.) # Note: There is absolutely nothing objectively true about statements like "cellulite is ugly" or "perfectly smooth and toned is more attractive." Those are just examples of a social reality we pass along to each other so often, that our brains start to believe they must be true, they're "natural," or they're "just the way things are." # But they're not. We can change the way we see things by interrupting those old thoughts, challenging and examining them, noticing how they affect us, changing what we expose ourselves to, and finding new beliefs that affect us in a more positive way. # Which exactly what I've done by re-casting my so-called embarrassing cellulite in the role of beloved Fancy Fat. # PS my fancy fat is more visible in some lighting or poses, and less visible in others. These 2 photos were taken when I happened to notice it popping recently in the mirror at my gym.

Hun fremhæver til sidst, at der, objektivt set, ikke er noget grimt ved appelsinhud, eller at helt glat hud skulle være mere attraktivt.

'Det er blot eksempler på en social virkelighed, som vi giver videre til hinanden hele tiden, så vores hjerner begynder at tro, at det er sandt. At det er naturligt, eller at det bare er sådan tingene er.'

Hun forklarer, at det netop er den illusion, som hun ikke vil købe ind i. I stedet vil hun udfordre den gængse opfattelse og skabe en tro på noget nyt, der hjælper folk i en mere positiv retning.

'Det er lige nøjagtig det, jeg har gjort, når jeg har omdøbt min 'åh så pinlige appelsinhud' til mit elskede Flotte Fedt.'

Jessi Kneeland er kendt for at dele billeder af sig selv i alle afskygninger. Både, når hun er i træningscentret og i situationer, hvor det hele er mindre opstillet.

I post photos of my body on the internet. I purposefully take and share photos that aren't "perfect," posed, or presented for the male gaze. I do this because I am a body image coach, and it's important to me that I practice what I preach. # A woman's body is not here to be looked at, judged, compared, criticized, or even admired. A woman's body is a vessel for life, and exists so that the woman can have a fully human experience. # When we get caught up in the cultural BS about what a woman's body should or shouldn't look like, and what she should or shouldn't do with it, we are robbing ourselves and everyone else of that human experience. When we are afraid to fully inhabit our bodies, when we live in shame about what people see and think when they look at us, we don't get to fully live. # My job is to help women learn how to inhabit their bodies without fear or shame. This is a concept so foreign to many women that I can only show them, by demonstrating in my own body. # I demonstrate that it is possible to *notice* cellulite without criticizing it. That you can *notice* weight gain without stressing about it. You can let your belly relax and be round without being embarrassed. You CAN observe your body without shame or fear. It IS possible. # Is it easy? Absolutely not. Is it fast? Not at all. But it's possible. And that's why I share photos like this one, of me working outside in a bikini, relaxed and natural. No hiding, no posing, no pretending, no shame. # This isn't an invitation to tell me what I should do with my body, or to tell me what you think of it. Maybe you thought I looked better yesterday, or maybe you prefer a little relaxed tummy. That doesn't matter to me. # This photo is for the women who have never relaxed their tummy in public, who can't even imagine posting a photo like this without sucking their belly in, or sticking their chest out to make their boobs look perkier. This is for any woman who thinks it's her job to create or maintain an appearance of "perfection," and who is utterly exhausted by the process. This photo is for the women who want to feel comfortable in their bodies but genuinely aren't sure if that's even possible.

Hun har tidligere lavet en såkaldt TED-talk om netop kropsaccept.

'Det er med fuldt overlæg, når jeg tager og deler billeder, der ikke er 'perfekte,' i stramme poseringer eller hvor jeg gør mig til for det mandlige blik. Det gør jeg fordi, jeg er kropsbillede-coach, og det er vigtigt, at jeg gør, som jeg selv prædiker,' lyder det fra hende.

'Jeg prøver at demonstrere, at man godt kan lægge mærke til appelsinhud, uden at man behøver at kritisere det.'

Many years ago, someone told me she was lucky that her 40 year old boobs "still passed the pencil test." I had never heard of this, so she explained: its when your boobs are so perky that if you put a pencil underneath them, the pencil would fall. I felt immediate, devastating shame. # I had always hated my breasts. They came early, and they came big, and they brought with them an endless stream of unwanted attention. The worst part was that while they got all this attention, I knew their secret. They weren't big, perky, round, or sexy. They weren't any of the things breasts were supposed to be. They were heavy, low, squishy, and (despite being so very young), they sagged downward. # I hated my breasts with every fiber of my being. I hated them for trespassing on my otherwise nice body, and for making me look fat or frumpy in any top that fit. I hated them for not fitting into normal bras, and for making things like "strapless" or "backless" impossible. I hated them for making men sexualize me, and I hated them for making me feel so self conscious. # For over a decade, I daydreamed about getting a boob job to make them look perkier and fuller and more normal. I imagined my body without them, where everything was finally perfect. # When I heard about the pencil test, I was filled with shame, because I knew that my 23 year old boobs would fail it. My boobs made me a failure. I was a failure. # The road to self love is long. Over the last 5 years, I have utterly turned around my relationship with my breasts. It wasn't easy. It took a lot of painful, scary work. It took facing my fears step by step, throwing away my push-up bras, getting off hormonal birth control, losing and gaining weight, connecting to my true sexuality, airing my shame to friends and to the internet, learning to feel safe in my body, educating myself on what female bodies really look like, and deconstructing all of my beliefs around beauty, sex, and worthiness. # While I would still fail the pencil test, my breasts are now my favorite body part. I love them for providing me with the opportunity to heal and grow. I love them for challenging me to be brave. I love them for being mine.

I saw Wonder Woman last night. I was happy to spend my dollars in support of a female superhero, because #fuckyeah. But- and I know this makes me a bad feminist- I didn't love it. Mostly because I don't like seeing action or violence onscreen, no matter who is kicking whose ass. I've never understood the appeal of fight sequences (or car chases, or war movies, or any of it). Life is violent enough, thankyouverymuch, I don't like that shit in my entertainment. I was hoping WW might have more character-development focus to hold my attention, but alas it was mostly action. Whomp whomp. # That having been said, Wonder Woman was super high quality in every way, and I really adored the actress. I'm so excited that female-lead movies like that (and Moana, and more!) exist. They represent important progress, and it makes me so happy to imagine all little girls who, thanks to these movies, will grow up not thinking there is anything strange or remarkable about badass female heroes. They will grow up knowing that women are more than plot accessories, and that "success" looks like more than finding your prince. And that warms my heart. # Anyone else see it? Thoughts?
