The ‘Pregnant Weightlifter’s’ Body Is Back For Everyone To Have An Opinion On
I wrote about the lovely Lea-Ann Ellison when she posted photographs of herself lifting weights while she was pregnant and people all over the world furrowed their brows and wrung their hands together and exclaimed WHY WON’T SHE THINK OF HER UNBORN BAYBAYYYYYYY even though she was lifting under the care of her trainer and her doctor. Well, Lea-Ann is back and posting amazingly adorable snaps of her new little son Skyler.
And even the “best” comment was supportive of Lea-Ann, but shitty to the rest of womankind:
And even though I like Lea-Ann just fine and I think that she can do whatever the hell she wants with her body, I’m pretty disappointed with the comment she made here:
I can do without the bigoted transphobic comments.
I have no issues with what people do with their bodies. As long as you aren’t using your body to prey on kids or taking your body down to the gun shop to buy a gun to kill people with or using your body to rape or sexually assault people I don’t care what you do with it. Women are different, some work out, some don’t, some eat sugar, some don’t, some weigh 80 pounds and some weigh 800 pounds and your body is your business and I still don’t see anyone getting all hand-wringy over HOT DADS WEIGHTLIFTING WITH THEIR BABIES IN THE SAME ROOM. Oof.
Congratulations on your baby Lea-Ann, he sure is a little cutie.
