She stood for fat acceptance, not fat-shaming. Rachele Cateyes was a blogger who posted a picture of herself in her obese state in a blue bikini on her tumblr. She wanted people to feel comfortable in their own skin no matter what shape or size they might be. 

But she was in for the shock of a lifetime! A site that showed before and after photos of fat people who had become thin showed her picture. When friends of her questioned her regarding her motives she took a look herself and found the stolen photo on the site. She contacted the site management and complained vociferously. 

According to Rachele Cateyes, she was not offended by the skin factor involved in the publicity of the photograph. What Rachele objected to was the usage of the photo for fat-shaming purposes. She does not endorse any diet or exercise and is very happy at her weight. 

Rachele Cateyes posted the image on her tumblr and wrote, "Someone on Facebook Stole A Photo of Me in a Bikini to Sell a Diet Program. I posted this photo on my blog and social networks in July of last year, with the intent to spread a powerful message about body positivity. I was unfortunately also turned into the unwilling face of a diet company called Venus Factor, without my permission or knowledge."

The company when contacted responded by saying that it was not within their jurisdiction to change what had been done. They advised Rachele to contact the original person or agency that had pilfered her picture. 

Although stealing someone’s picture from the Internet and using it in your site for other purposes is a crime, a lot of hanky-panky still goes on in relation to this misdemeanor. 

Rachele has finally decided to do the only thing that lies within her power. She is building up a movement of sorts where many like-minded people are putting pressure on the company to remove the picture from their website. 

It will take a monumental amount of effort to produce the change necessary. But it will have been worth it in the end. The company must bow down to what is the right thing to do.
