This Badass College Student Responded To Body Shamers In The Most Brilliant Way

'Girls: Wear whatever the hell you want'

Sara Petty isn't here for your body-shaming. The 20-year-old college student from Sunbury, Ohio took to Twitter earlier this month to fire back at haters who think women's outfits should be based on their weight.

These are just two examples of the many tweets Petty found online:

"If you're 200 pounds, maybe a bikini isn't for you."

"You over 200 pounds and got the audacity to wear a crop top..."

Though the comments weren't specifically directed to her, she stepped up to the plate with her own brilliant response: killin' it in whatever clothes these people say she "can't" wear.

"I hope women realize how important it is to stop tearing each other down and uplift each other," Petty wrote to the Huffington Post. "We have a lot going against us as women, we don’t need other women against us, too."

Since Petty tweeted out her powerful message, it's gone viral and amassed over 73k retweets and 85k likes. The Internet is sometimes full of a lot of negativity, but she saw (and took!) the opportunity to increase body positivity.

"I also hope that girls are able to separate who they are from the number that shows up on the scale, and realize there is no number, high or low, that dictates if you’re worthy of feeling beautiful," Petty continued. "Body-shaming will probably always be there in some way, but I hope my post helps at least some women feel beautiful in spite of it."
