What’s Your Excuse? Controversy

Here is a link to an interview with the woman who posted the picture:


So this mother of 3 posted a picture to her public Facebook page of her in a sports bra and spanx with her 3 kids with the caption What’s Your Excuse? This has had tons of backlash because mother’s everywhere are claiming that she is saying that if you don’t have a body like hers then you are automatically inferior and not a good mother. The interview I posted above was interesting to hear her respond but I believe she is just trying to cover up after this picture went viral. This relates so much to the beauty ideal that we’ve been talking about in class. What do you guys think?
