Standing up for herself: Ashley James, 32, has hit out at her male Instagram followers who send her ‘crass comments’ about her assets in a long statement on social media on Tuesday
The beauty took to her stories to write a list about her feelings, explaining she refers to receive compliments from girls rather than guys/
She penned: ‘1. Compliments from other girls mean 1000 times more than from guys.
‘2. I realise I have boobs, it’s what nature intended for me. But guys making crass comments on my posts or in my DMs don’t give me any form of pleasure or satisfaction.
‘3. It’s these types of comments that made me spend my teens/twenties feeling ashamed of my body and like I had to cover up to avoid unwanted attention, or worry I’d be judged.

‘4. I get it, boobs are attractive. But just because someone has boobs, especially big boobs it doesn’t give you a right to point them our [sic] or comment on them to us. It’s kind of demeaning. Please just go have a cold shower.
‘5. Girls can complement my boobs and body as much as they want. It means more because girls can be judgemental, so it means a lot when we give each other love. If I ever expressed displeasure at the size of my boobs of the attention they got, girls used to presume I was seeking attention by saying it. So now, girls who compliment me make my day.’
Ashley’s post comes after her Bumble dating profile was revealed earlier this month.

Ashley’s fun Bumble profile comes just months after she claimed she was happy being single and encouraged her followers to ‘search for the love all around them from friends and family’ which will help them to ‘start dating people who are good for them’.
Alongside a stunning snap of her in a green dress, Ashley wrote on Instagram in April: ‘Happily single. ✨ A friend of mine had her heartbroken this week and she asked me how I’m so happy single. And honestly I think it’s because I’ve stopped seeing it as a bad thing, and have stopped allowing people to pity or patronize me for it.
‘I’m so happy’: Ashley recently celebrated being single and admitted that the time alone has ‘allowed her to love herself’
‘Your relationship status can change all the time, it’s not necessarily a good or a bad thing: it’s just a thing that happens. The time alone has allowed me to really learn and love myself, and also love and invest in my friendships.
‘You’re made to feel like there’s something lacking but love is literally all around you and you can do pretty fun things with your friends if you give them the same energy.
‘Plus, I’ve set some ground rules. Being single does not mean I shouldn’t be treated as an adult entitled to the same independence as my friends in relationships. No I don’t want to sleep in a child’s room or on your sofa.

‘No I don’t want to share a bed, or be set up with your creepy cousin. I’ll get a hotel or not come at all. If you want to ask me personal questions about my relationship status and happiness, I will ask you equally as encroaching questions about yours.✨.’
‘I’ve only learnt all this in the last few months. I used to think people were lying if they didn’t actively want / need someone else. But honestly, once you realise being single is fabulous, you’ll start to date people who are actually good for you.
And speak up and walk away quicker if they’re less than up to standard, because you’re perfectly fine without them,’ Ashley continued.
