ONE WOMAN shared how she sometimes lies about being pregnant because she’s tired of other people assuming she is.
Daphne Colson, who describes herself as a “medium height cowgirl” on her TikTok profile @daphnecolson, revealed how she came to the conclusion that she should use her weight to her advantage.
In a video posted to the social media site, Daphne posed for the camera and told her followers, “There’s something about me when a stranger asks if I’m pregnant, I still say yes.
!Do I need a seat? Yes, please. Do I want to jump to the front of the line? Absolutely.”
The American continued, “Would you like an extra dessert? You better believe it
“If you guys don’t want boundaries with fat people, I’ll use that to my advantage.”
She also added in the caption for the post, which has garnered over 25,000 likes, “We’re turning fat phobias into besties with pregnancy privilege.”
Daphne added a bunch of hashtags at the end including #plussizeproblems #midsizequeens and #plussizetiktok.
When Daphne’s followers said they didn’t blame her and would do the same, she thanked them for their support.
However, she was also targeted by trolls who accused her of “taking advantage of” them.
One social media user said: “If you’re not pregnant, don’t lie and take advantage of it. Easy like.
“That puts real pregnant women in a negative position.”
After spotting the comment, Daphne responded, showing that she wasn’t taking it.
She wrote: “It really isn’t that deep beast.”
