15 People Who Had Awesome Responses To Being 'Fat-Shamed'

"Baby, I have more confidence in one thigh than you do in your entire body."

It can be difficult to know what to say when someone is intentionally trying to make you feel bad about your body. Fat-shaming is never OK — and science says it's definitely not helpful. In the past, we've highlighted tons of stories of celebrities promoting body positivity, but now we want to share some people's anonymous responses to being fat-shamed.

People who experienced fat-shaming firsthand used the Whisper app — an online platform for users to anonymously share their stories, secrets and confessions — to reveal some of their experiences as well as their awesome responses. Some people chose to break up with the significant other that made them feel bad about their body. Others retorted with statements that promote self-love. Regardless of the approach, each one of these responses makes it clear that confidence is a beautiful, beautiful thing. 

You can read some of their confessions below:
