This is rather awesome.

Inspired by Bethany Townsend - the 23-year old Crohn's Disease patient who recently posted photos of her and her colostomy bag online - many others inflicted with this same condition are taking to the Internet.

And shedding their body image concerns in the process.

Crohn’s is a disease that hits the digestive system, causing severe inflammation, making it difficult for one to absorb nutrients, digest food and remove waste. Often, those affected by it must wear a colostomy bag.

Thanks to Townsend’s bravery, many others have now posted photos of themselves on the Crohn’s and Colitis UK Facebook page with the hashtag #GetYourBellyOut.

Demi Lovato would be proud of these inspiring individuals. Applaud their pictures now:

As a CNA, I firmly believe that the bag is and should be hidden from view of others, much like a vagina or a penis. 'Nuff said.

I am also a CNA. I don't think it would be a big big deal if the color of the bag were opaque olso we can't see the contents. Otherwise more power to her!
