Simone Biles Shares Why
She's "Done Competing"
with Other People's
Beauty Standards The queen of gymnastics took
to Instagram to share how she's
been affected by body-shaming. "Let's talk about competition,"
she shared. "Specifically the
competition I didn't sign up for..." "There is a growing competition that has
nothing to do with performance itself.
I'm talking about beauty," continued Biles. The athlete shared
message as part
campaign. Biles shared why today's
unattainable standards of
beauty are so problematic. "I'd be lying if I told you that what
people say about my arms, my legs, my
body...hasn't gotten me down sometimes." While Biles clearly knows how to shut
down trolls, she still recognizes the
need to change the way people judge. Biles reminded her fans
that the only opinion
that truly matters is yours.
