‘The bride who refused to cover her birthmark.’ People wonder why I’m not ashamed.’: Woman with nevus birthmark celebrates her ‘distinctive look,’ reminds us to ‘love ourselves’

“At church, I made eye contact with a lady. She gestured for me to remove my birthmark from my face. I ignored her, but every time I gazed her direction, she’d make the same gesture. At the end of the service, the pastor asked if anyone had final remarks. She stood up. ‘I want the young lady to remove what’s was on her face.’ I was 9 years old.”

‘From the corner of my eye, I saw 4 men rush toward you. You tried to leave, but they lifted you. I was enraged. For you! For me! For all of us!’: Woman furious after plus-sized lady ‘humiliated’ on vacation for ‘entertainment’

“You put up your hand to stop them. They didn’t listen. They didn’t care about your consent. They lifted you up into the position the other women were so easily lifted into by their husbands. Except it took 4 men to lift you. Your face was red. Your husband looked sympathetic as you whispered to each other. Did you realize you were part of the entertainment that night? I didn’t see you again, but I haven’t stopped thinking about you.”
