Body shaming has, sorry to say, become constancy, forcing most women to be familiar in recent years with terms like curvy, thick, voluptuous, overweight, underweight, gaunt, flabby, fatty, tight gaps…
Phrases like too fat or too thin dominate discussion of celebrities on social networks and media with thanks to the unrealistic ideals of the modeling industry, resulting in body shaming and confusing expectations about how normal women should look to confirm to the society ideal figure.
Celebrities like Adele, Kim Kardashian or Scarlett Johansson receive criticism and hideous attacks daily for how they look, and if Kate Upton doesn’t look good what will normal women think about her own body? Gossip posts on social networks are full of pictures of curvy bikini models during the summer, making youngsters dissatisfied and miserable in their own bodies.
We all need to stop hating and criticism voluptuous or skinner ladies without considering other factors that contribute to our body, because that makes young person’s body shaming and unhappy generally!
When we speak of body shaming whether you are tall, curvy, slim, full
figured or thick you will be criticized. Society tells us you need to have big breasts and back, but small waist if you want to look good, not to mention different body shapes like an hourglass, pear, or apple… You need curves but no fat… there is really no winning situation. Growing up in a world of social networks, tons of Medias and magazines is not an easy task for young girls and boys and will for sure have a negative impact on future generations.
What should we tell ourselves in the mirror? I’m the only one looks like this and that is my beauty. Variety is superior, not some fashion designers cliché. Be yourself doesn’t matter what the media or society say. Stop body shaming and embrace your unique body!
