If I am fat, you say: “Oh My God! She is so fat!”
If I am skinny, you say: “Oh My God! She is so skinny, might be anorexic!”
If I am neither fat nor skinny, you say: “Oh My God! She looks so weird!”
If I have acne, you say: “Oh My God! Eww… acne, someone please save her!”
If I am too tall or too short, you say: “Oh My God! Look at that height!”
If I walk in a particular way, you say: “Oh My God! Her walk is so funny as if she has slept with four men at a time!”
But exactly why do you say such things?
Reason being simple…..
You just want to laugh at someone, You feel good criticizing someone!
But have you ever thought about the person you just criticized?
It shatters that person breaking them into pieces
Those nasty comments staying with them forever
Making them hate their own body….
Hating their own self, doubting their own being
Sometimes leading them to take drastic steps as well….
So please …
Stop body shaming, It’s not funny!
Mostly all of us have been a victim of body shaming either directly or indirectly and it hurts…hurts very badly! Body Shaming is not gender specific, it is not just limited to only women. It happens even with men!
High time we stop doing it! If you find something awkward about a person and if you want to help them out genuinely, then tell them in a subtle manner else just keep your opinion to yourself. Because just remember one thing, none of us are perfect!
This was my second entry for the A to Z Challenge for 2016: B for Body Shaming!
