“This woman embraced her skin condition and shut down body-shaming bullies” Then Learned Irony.

Hey Buzzfeed.  How’s it going.  I saw you had this article up today.

Seems nice.  Good for her for owning this.  Looks like she’d be a real cute girl without it and its nice to see that she is trying to get the word out to treat everyone equally.  Lets read some of her more inspiring quotes:

“One day I remember being on the school bus and hearing a young boy laugh at me and call me a spotty dog. That really knocked my confidence. I was only young and it made me feel different to the other kids, like something was wrong with me.”

And more:

According to the teen, boys are often the first to comment, saying things like, “You look like you’re dirty, take a wash.”

And finally:

“Over time I’ve learnt to brush off negative comments and remember that most people stare and say cruel things because they’re not used to seeing someone with my condition.”

That’s right!  Just because someone is born looking different than you is no reason to be prejuduced against that person.  Lets take one more look at this girl who taught us all such a valuable lesson.

Oh.  Oh my.  Well.  That irony sure is a bitch.
