We don't know Lexi Sinclair.
But we'd like to buy Lexi Sinclair a drink or two dozen.
The relatively new mother took to Facebook last week after some total stranger acted like a total A-Hole to her at the public pool.
(Yes, women can be A-Holes, too. You're about to find out how.)
According to Sinclair’s recounting of the situation, she was just hanging with her baby son, minding her own business.
Soon enough, a woman struck up a conversation with Lexi, asking harmless questions about her child before arriving at the real purpose for approaching Sinclair.
And that purpose was apparently to tell Sinclair how it was “inappropriate” for her to show so much skin as a parent.
Because it might be distracting to the men at the pool.
Fortunately, Sinclair did not react as we would have; which would have been to pick up the nearest pool chair and clobber the stranger over the head with it.
We'll just go ahead and let Sinclair take it from here, explaining what transpired as part of her caption to the above (awesome!) image:
So today I took my 4 month old son to the pool.
While putting Christians pool hat on, a woman (maybe mid 50s) comes up and makes conversation with me about Christian. Asking me his age, how much he weighs, how he sleeps, etc.
She then proceeded to tell me that the men at the pool would feel more comfortable if I was in a one-piece swim suit because a bikini isn't appropriate for a mother, especially one who's "still recovering."
Anyone who knows me knows I had a few words for this crazy, ballsy woman. But instead I just smiled, kissed my son and told her:
'I'm proud of my body. In just one year I've gained 50 pounds, and lost 37. I've grown a human and given birth to a beautiful miracle. My body provided food for my child. So, no, my body might not be the best sight for other men to see.
My stretch marks and tummy pudge might not be sexy. But they're proof that I've done something amazing, and I have a man that loves me and finds me even sexier and more beautiful now.
To be honest, I don't give a tiny rats ass what other men, or a prissy twit like you think. Have a nice day, though.
Perfect response, right?
Somewhere, a couple women in particular are clapping:
There's Rachel Hollis, a mother who went viral last year for also sharing a bikini-clad photo of her stretch marks.
Here is her famous photo:
And then there was Tanis Jex-Blake, a mother of five who responded to bullies in similar fashion:
Let's all stand and applaud these women, shall?
And then let's all sit down and boo the heck out of anyone who dares to criticize the body of a mother.
Heck, of anyone who dares to criticize ANYone's body. Just mind your own business, people.
