Men have differing opinions about women and their body hair. Some love it; others find it unattractive. Some don’t care. This last group loves and respect their lady with or without body hair.
One woman named Suraiya posted photos of herself online wearing the new underwear she purchased at Walmart. And sadly, folks can’t help but comment on what she posted despite the fact her personal decisions have no direct impact on their own lives. They still make what she’s done their business, body shaming her in the process.
None of the trolls have considered why she’s done it. She has full confidence in herself as a woman with a hairy stomach.
Suraiya isn’t afraid to show her body or her personal style. Both men and women weren’t afraid to fire off nasty, negative comments. Many people said she should shave her stomach. Some have said it’s “disgusting.”
One man said her belly button looked like it has a “beard.” another said, “It’s okay to be hairy, but you don’t need to post that.”
Despite the horrible comments, Suraiya stated she posted the photos because she feels confident and comfortable with herself. Isn’t that how we all should feel?
Once she tackled the trolls for commenting on her body, they started hating her for her race. Yes, this is disgusting and terrible. She fired back at her critics with a statement of her own: “let me be hairy and fluffy and confident in peace. I know more about our culture and our creed than you could ever imagine. Don’t you dare.”
Many women on social media have backed Suraiya, saying she’s positively promoting a natural body image. She’s beautiful just the way she is.
In an interview, Suraiya said the support she’s received has been worth enduring the trolls: “For any hate I received I got the same amount of love back. And that’s what made it totally worth it.
“I think women should just do what they want. No one should dictate what we embrace. If women want to embrace shaving, then shave, if they want to embrace being hairy – awesome.
“I’m tired of constantly seeing women being put in a position of helplessness with their bodies. The narrative belongs to us, and so do the choices we make within the narrative.”
