Famous women's bodies are taking quite a hit online today.

It's no news that people act like a bunch of dicks online, especially when it comes to women's appearance. Today, I bring you three stories of women being awesome and totally owning it.
Let's start with Pink.
She attended her friend's cancer benefit on Sunday night in a black dress. However, underneath the black dress was her human woman's body, meaning there were morons online who were compelled to voice their negative opinions about it. Pink saw these awful, body-shaming tweets (which I'm not posting on purpose), and responded with the following message:
Pink, you are a gem. Even at 11% battery life! (via twitter)
I love you, Pink! Thank you for being a mature, confident adult, and also a badass who performs mind-blowing stunts that require immense strength.
Ok. Next up is Chrissy Teigen.
She posted this picture on Instagram on Monday:
Own your stretch marks. (via instagram)
Yes! This makes me so happy. She received a huge amount of support for this photo, and rightfully so, since this is the best use of Instagram filters since the invention of Instagram. Let's never again ask the question "which filter hides the imperfections on my body?" From now on let's use filters for their original purpose: pretending to be photographers.
The last story of the day is about Janelle Monáe.
The musical/dance/fashion icon released a new video yesterday. One twitter user said: “girl stop being so soulful and be sexy..tired of those dumbass suits..you fine but u too damn soulful man." Her response:
Sit. Down. (via twitter)
Pure gold. Simply the perfect reaction to the tweet equivalent of the male gaze. Janelle you are a star and I love you!
Let's follow the example of these women when it comes to body-shaming. I seriously can't wait to tell a hater to "sit down."
