Lizzie Velasquez has put herself out there by way of motivational speaking and Internet fame, but she never signed up to be the subject of a cruel meme. Velasquez, who was born with a rare, undiagnosed congenital disease that causes the inability to put on body fat, came upon a meme using her picture and poking fun at her frail appearance.

Thumbs up to Lizzie for her response. The meme does not even make any sense, so the person who posted it is a complete tool as well. Shes doing good things with her life by helping others. Many other people not even facing health challenges like her dont put in the effort to do this.

It was actually a pretty popular thing last week for people to post memes of extremely obese people or those with very visible disabilities and tag their friends saying they are looking for them for sexual purposes. Just a really bad look on humanity at the end of the day. Glad Lizzie has a lot of strength to deal with this.

i think she is awesome. i'm not just saying that. she has so much confidence and that is so attractive. i like her personality and her ability to get out there and live life without being ashamed of who she is. i think she is great and i wish i had the confidence and self-esteem she sure seems to have. you never really know what is going on inside someone really but she sure seems to have strength that many of us don't have.

she's got moxie! i've never used that word before but it just really suits her.
