Bullied over pregnancy, this lesbian YouTuber gives it back to her haters in style
Dear digital ninjas, you have messed with the wrong woman.
Thanks to social media, we are free to give our two cents on almost every topic in the world. However, some digital ninjas use this opportunity to spew filth.
Recently, a famous YouTube couple found themselves at the receiving end of cyberbulling. Domonique and Crissy, a married lesbian couple, with over one million subscribers is expecting their first baby. Eager to share the news with their followers, the duo posted a few pictures on Instagram, documenting the pregnancy.
Soon after, Domonique was trolled for carrying the baby, since she is more masculine of the two. In the interview to BuzzFeed, she said, "I guess some small-minded people thought it was wrong because I dress like a dude. When in reality, I dress [in a way] that is comfortable to me."
In order to put a stop to all the hurtful comments, she decided to share a heart-touching post on Instagram. "I am a woman. I am a woman who has always wanted a child. Who cares that I'm not the 'normal' look of a pregnant woman (sic),"wrote Domonique.
I am a woman. I am a woman who has always wanted a child. I am a woman who likes to dress how she pleases and doesn't give two shits about your stereotypes. Who cares if I like to wear snap backs and joggers? Who cares that I'm not the "normal" look of a pregnant woman. I am Domonic's mom and I am proud! There's a lot of hate going around with me being a "pregnant stud" which is soooo funny to me. Like you people cry all day "don't judge" or "I hate when people judge" but are the MAIN ONES. I went to a sperm bank to conceive Domonic, and I am so blessed to be able to bring him into this world! He will have the best life. One thing I will teach Domonic is to always be himself and to stand up for himself! So Domonic, mommy is sorry that you have to be born in a world full of hate, but just know that I will do my best to protect you. I love you Domonic Cristopher Wilson. You make me a better person ?????????? @thedomonicwilson

Giving it back to the haters, the YouTuber posted a picture of herself, dressed in a red jacket and blue denims. Mentioning that they have decided to name their son Domonic, she further wrote: "I went to a sperm bank to conceive Domonic, and I am so blessed to be able to bring him into this world! He will have the best life. One thing I will teach Domonic is to always be himself and to stand up for himself!"
Domonique even addressed the elephant in the room and revealed why she decided to go ahead with the pregnancy. "It was simple, I always wanted to carry. And Crissy was so amazing and supportive of the fact. We didn't think anything of it. Just two girls in love who wanted to start a family (sic)," she explained.
Her post has received 143,020 likes in just five days, with a lot of support coming her way. The couple also uploaded a video 'dancing the haters off', which is breaking the Internet.
