It is an unfortunate fact of life that we will all come upon bullies at some point or another. As unwanted as any remarks about your body type or skin color may be at any time, it’s especially hurtful when those comments are made towards a woman during a pregnancy.
Often pregnancy for a new mother means fluctuating emotions, cravings, sore muscles, and sleepless nights. So for a bully to even think about adding rude remarks a woman’s changing body on top of everything is just incomprehensible.
This is a battle that Porsche Thomas found herself facing one day after internet bullies decided to attack her pregnant belly and her race after she posted the picture below.
At 35 weeks Porsche looked absolutely amazing, especially because of the fact that she was carrying not just one but two baby boys.
Almost immediately after Porsche posted the picture, the rude comments began to pour in with people calling Porsche “nasty” and wondering why her belly was “so black.”
Instead of taking the bait and attacking the bullies back, Porsche had a comeback that stopped all the bullies in their tracks. She posted the photo below to her Instagram account sharing her pregnant belly in all of its glorious beauty.
“While some of y’all been in my comments criticizing the blackness that is my belly and me during what shoulda been your holiday cheer, I been over here enjoying life, growing tiny humans, performing miracles and hopefully getting even blacker,” she wrote in her powerful caption.
On January 7th of this year, she welcomed her two little miracles into the world.
Her twin boys August and Berlin are just the most adorable little things! To think that only a few weeks earlier, Porsche was being bullied online for carrying and protecting these two beautiful baby boys.
Porsche’s story is the perfect example of how to respond to bullies when they try to come and attack you – don’t let them have any say in how you view yourself!
A pregnant mother’s belly is one of the most beautiful and miraculous sights and results in bringing adorable tiny humans into the world— that is no small feat.
