Posted August 4th, 2014 @ 5:03am by Chilli Amar


Tanis Jex-Blake is a mother-of-five. She was just trying to enjoy a day at the beach. Unfortunately, her day was ruined by a couple of men and a woman who made fun of her post-baby belly in a bikini.

Tanis posted a photo of her stomach and a response to the "bullies" on her Facebook page. It has since been shared over SIX THOUSAND times.

She writes..."I'm sorry if my first attempt at sun tanning in a bikini in public in 13 years "grossed you out". I'm sorry that my stomach isn't flat and tight. I'm sorry that my belly is covered in stretch marks. I'm NOT sorry that my body has housed, grown, protected, birthed and nurtured FIVE fabulous, healthy, intelligent and wonderful human beings."

You can read the full response in the Facebook post above.
