Jenelle Evans looks rather voluptuous these days. Of course, that’s quite common among moms as they get a bit older. Quite often, trolls slam her when she posts photos of herself. But, she takes no notice of body-shamers. In fact, she openly describes herself as “thick.” And, a recent photo sparked a bit of a debate about that.
Jenelle Evans loves her body, not scared to flaunt it
Sometimes, Jenelle wears a bikini. And as she gets older, she shows she developed a bit of a tummy. Some fans love that she shares photos and seems unafraid of her own image. Actually, in that respect, Jenelle’s a bit of a role model. After all, fat shaming’s terrible, especially for young teens. We reported that it takes courage to share photos of bikinis. Despite education, the world still focuses on size rather than on personality.
On Sunday, Jenelle shared two more photos of herself. She lay in the sun while wearing a yellow bikini. She captioned it with, “Cause she thick… thi thi thi thi thick” 🔥 #Bikini #LazySunday.” Of course, there are always trolls on Jenelle’s Instagram. But, oddly enough, they seemingly have some body issues themselves. Actually, it seems not uncommon. But others talked about “thick” or “fat.”
The difference between ‘thick’ and ‘fat’
In the modern world, thick, or thicc, refers to someone with a rather curvy body. In previous years, they might have been termed “voluptuous.” On the other hand, a person considered as fat, usually has an unhealthy mass that could actually threaten their health. And, as one of Jenelle Evans’ fans pointed out, she looks “healthy.” Certainly, the Teen Mom alum’s not about to star on My 600-LB Life!
As one of Jenelle Evans’ fans pointed out, “After 3 children you look amazing.” Then, another one commented, “Real woman curves🙌.” One person described Jenelle as “Healthy and Beautiful 💜.” And, “Stay beautiful and healthy jenelle you look good,” was another comment. Actually, it’s not really clear why some trolls slam Jenelle as fat or even waste their time body-shaming her. And, many fans appreciate that she shares photos which look pretty much normal for mommies.
Important message about body image
One fan wrote, “It’s a great feeling when you can just be comfortable in your own skin.” And, that’s an important message, according to Live Science. Teens especially, feel the effects of body shaming and negativity very keenly. In fact, it sometimes brings on depression. Researchers at Bradley Hospital, Butler Hospital and Brown Medical School noted that it can even cause “suicidal thoughts.”
Thankfully, social influencers like Jenelle Evans bring an encouraging message to young followers. She lets them know that it’s okay to feel comfortable about themselves. Do you agree? Sound off in the comments below.
