A Kansas City, Missouri, mother was told to leave a public pool because of her appearance.
Lexi Sinclair was reportedly at the pool with her 4-month-old son, Christian, when a woman approached her with a rude suggestion, WDAF reported. Sinclair posted about the incident on Facebook.
So today I took my 4 month old son to the pool. While putting Christians pool hat on, a woman (maybe mid 50s) comes up and makes conversation with me about Christian. Asking me his age, how much he weighs, how he sleeps, etc. She then proceeded to tell me that the men at the pool would feel more comfortable if I was in a one-piece swim suit because a bikini isn't appropriate for a mother, especially one who's "still recovering." Anyone who knows me knows I had a few words for this crazy, ballsy woman.
But instead I just smiled, kissed my son and told her, "I'm proud of my body. In just one year I've gained 50 pounds, and lost 37. I've grown a human and given birth to a beautiful miracle. My body provided food for my child. So, no, my body might not be the best sight for other men to see. My stretch marks and tummy pudge might not be sexy.
But they're proof that I've done something amazing, and I have a man that loves me and finds me even sexier and more beautiful now. To be honest, I don't give a tiny rats ass what other men, or a prissy twit like you think. Have a nice day though.
The post quickly went viral, garnering more than 17,000 shares.

“You look awesome!" another added. "So proud of you for standing up to her stupidity! And shame on her."
