This Woman Replies to Fake Instagram Models in the Most Epic Way

Instagram is a place of opportunities for artists. The platform is mostly leveraged by models and fitness bloggers who have built an empire of followers on this pictorial social media site. These models suggest through their beautiful pictures clicked at the exotic places about how to get lighter skin, pose for yoga, what to eat, what not to eat and how to stay healthy. But beneath this shiny veneer lies the harsh reality.

An Instagram blogger, Cheesie King addresses this issue to uncover the reality and encourages people to come out ‘real’ without Photoshopped pictures to celebrate ‘body positivity’. To do this, she takes a picture in two different poses (Instagram vs Real) to reveal the difference.

Meet Chessie King, and Instagram blogger promoting body positivity.

“THIS IS ME. IT IS MY BODY

But things were not like this a few years back.

All that she cared about back then was having the leanest body possible.

She often mentions that:

“Even at my smallest, when I was training the most & eating the least, I just wanted to cover up my body because it wasn’t my idea of ‘perfect’.”

But things have changed.

“Now my priority is to be happy & comfortable in my skin, & today I appreciate my body & what it does for me. We were not made to be Barbie dolls who look insanely good 24/7, we were made to be human & we should all be allowed to feel insanely good 24/7. Come at me keyboard warriors, you can say what you want, but nothing will knock me down.”

The lady is one a mission.

She’s on a mission to help women have body confidence and love themselves the way they are. Through these ‘edited vs real’ pictures, she tries to help them understand that all those flattering pictures are nothing but a lie.

We’d be monsters if we listened to everyone.

 

Chessie shares, if we listen to everyone and change ourselves according to them, we’d be monsters. Whether you have 23 followers or 3 million, you should not react or deal with the regular hate online.

Both the pictures you see above are not edited. Chessie writes, “Neither of these photos is edited or photoshopped, same bottom two completely different angles.”

She isn’t against the fake models only, she’s against people who cyberbully females on social media.

She isn’t against the fake models only, she’s against people who cyberbully females on social media.
So, she keeps on taking a dig at such bullies and fake models who manipulate their poses in pictures and use editing tools to mislead their followers.

Not only models, but we’re all guilty of trying pose in a manner that’d make our body look more adorable and acceptable according to untold-unofficial social media norms. And that’s okay until and unless bad pictures do not affect our self-confidence.

She continuosly reminds us that focusing on your weight will never help you gain body confidence.

Is Instagram a big reason for depression & mental health problems in young people? The stats say it all but what do YOU think? 🧠 When I was growing up, I only had the ‘perfect’ girls in magazines to look at & even that was an unhealthy comparison. I hate to think what young teenagers are now comparing themselves to; distorted, filtered, photoshopped versions of reality. There has always been a pressure to look good, but what’s scary is that Instagram is accessible all day everyday without any sort of time cap on it or restriction on what you can see apart from the choice of who you’re following. It upsets me so much to think how much this can effect young people’s mental health. Even the most educated still don’t know how easy it is to use photoshop or editing apps. I share so many of these posts but I just want to help as many people as I can find that true friendship with their bodies. – I’ve always been conscious of the back of my legs & refused to wear shorts for most of my teenage years. I thought I was the only one who had a ‘second bum’ 💁🏼‍♀️ I see girls beeeehinds on here looking smooooth as a peach which I’m sure they’ve worked hard for but I find it super unrealistic for me personally. The more I’ve shared on here about body confidence (or lack of) the more I realise I’m not alone & the more normal it becomes to look like the right in shorts. – I was speaking to someone about this earlier last week & they said their 12 year old cousin was posting photos on Instagram of her in a bikini & the caption was ‘rate me out of 10’ then another post of her in her underwear, if I get more than 50 likes I’ll send you a DM *winky face*. Instagram can be an amazing place but it can also be very dangerous. – Do you think there should be something on a post, a disclaimer to say the image has been edited/photoshopped? What are your thoughts on protecting young teenagers & preventing them from mental health problems connected with social media? ❤️🧡💛
