Harmless or embarrassing? That’s the debate happening on an Australian fitness influencer’s social media feed after she posted a birthday photo of her and her teenage son on Instagram.
Sophie Guidolin says there was no sexualization to the photo. Instead, she was merely wishing her 15-year-old son a happy birthday and used a previous photo where she was wearing a bikini.
Followers and others then jumped into the comments to call the mother’s photo “inappropriate.”
She told the Daily Star, “Having a body is normal, having body parts is normal, it’s not sexualized, it’s nothing shameful, and it’s something I reiterate and drive home here with my boys.”
The 33-year-old Guildolin even posted a video with her son saying he wasn’t embarrassed.
Guildolin’s feed is full of fitness, healthy eating, and lifestyle photos, with some with her family mixed in.
