A day later, Melissa shared another image from the same night, explaining that bullies had sent her mean messages about her relationship.
She wrote: "When taking a picture in a sparkly dress next to the man you love makes people comment about your body, question your relationship, make judgements [sic] about him for loving you.
"Our relationship is political. Even though we both know how natural and right it feels. And if the world won’t just let us be, we will keep fighting for our love, for our space, for our right to be seen, accepted without question, and celebrated.
'In all honesty it’s silly to think it bothers people so much, but when privileged people base their value on attraction and relationships, it results in the plethora of relationships that look like mine being erased and delegitimized. Like somehow I don’t deserve him or our love isn’t real.
"We are exactly what each other wants, and guess what, our bodies are a part of that. It’s not abnormal or a fetish. It’s simply natural.
"So while you insist on yelling your insecurities and bigotry at me, realize I’m not playing the game you play any longer. I’m not playing by your rules. And it’s honestly sad you still are. 2018 is the year for Love that is not defined by weight, age, ability, genitals, gender, sexuality. Not defined by race or ethnicity or religion. We’re having more fun this way anyway ;)."
Melissa’s followers praised her for what she wrote.
One person wrote: “I just want to say it’s easy to see why he loves you — from a quick glance you are confident, fun and of course gorgeous. Have fun and enjoy having a gorgeous man to love you back!”
Another person wrote: “You look so beautiful and so so happy. It’s so nice to see two people that truly love each other and are happy for who they are.”
Another person said: “This hits home for me so much! My husband is extremely fit and thin and I am a plus size 5’3″ woman and people constantly give us looks and judge our relationship. They wonder why he is with me and assume he must have a ‘thing for fat girls’ when in reality, he just has a thing for me. He loves me. And I love him. The end.”
