“#TheySaid you’re getting so fat you won’t be able to come back from that.”

Founder and CEO of the athletic wear company Oiselle Sally Bergesen definitely remembers one of the first times she was body-shamed. “’Keep eating like that and you’re going to be a butterball.’ My Dad when I was 12,” Bergesen tweeted on May 25.

It’s no surprise that the hashtag #TheySaid started trending a couple of days ago on Twitter, which has become a stream of crap things people have said about women’s bodies.
