Women Are Brilliantly Fighting Back at Body Shaming Trolls With Cake by By Laura Beck/ #CakesForCashmetette hashtag movement!

"Women all over Instagram started posting #CakesForCashmerette photos. In the pics, ladies are seen eating delicious cake (and all sorts of other tasty treats) and generally giving a middle finger (sometimes literally) to the idiots who want all women to conform to a certain mold. Newsflash: bodies come in all different shapes and sizes and they all have a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of cake. (Or pie, if you prefer/are a crazy person.)"

"For that is what happened. I mentioned this incident on the photo of my awesome green striped Colette Moneta maxi , and as a laugh, hashtagged it with #CakeWithCashmerette. A little while later, Mary took a photo of herself eating delicious cake while reading my blog posts with the hashtag… and then it exploded! A lady cake-eating explosion! At last check there were over 150 photos in support on Instagram, and just an overwhelming tide of support and positivity and public cake eating.  I was/am so, so touched.
