The system has shaped an idea of the perfect woman which includes an idea of the perfect body — long hair, fair skin, an hourglass figure, long legs and what not. We see all those Lipton tea and Quaker Oats around us which makes us believe that being thin is better for us in life, not for the sake of being healthy but to match conventional beauty standards and be more acceptable to society. Not many realise — but this is oppression. I am concerned about my health but comments regarding my health should not make me conscious about how I look. So for a person to exist, being fat is definitely is out of the window.
I am definitely in that posse. I have been like this all my life. I have tried to gain weight a lot of times but I have failed. I have had those disgusting protein powder drinks and ed the gym, but nothing worked. I have met doctors who have told me what to do. The remarks on my body type are not for the sake of my health but on how I look because it does not take a lot of calculation to differentiate between those two.
Nevertheless, this is not to say that thin-shaming is an equivalent to fat-shaming. These are very different concepts and it is important to acknowledge that thin people still hold a privilege. Ultimately body-shaming in any way or form is unwarranted. Fat-shaming is very real and justifying it as a health concern is unacceptable. Fat people are subjected to constant harassment from their day-to-day interactions to being stigmatized so much so that it to fatphobia. Plus-size women who are comfortable with their bodies are considered to be glorifying obesity and are stereotyped as lazy, inactive, or even gross!
Since I have been a skinny girl my whole life, I have had to deal with bullying quite a lot. I have stored a lot of anger inside me towards my family, relatives, friends, and even strangers who contributed to my insecurities and declining self-confidence.
My reaction is usually a mix of anger or frustration and a desire to peacefully explain the concept of body positivity, when someone says these things to me:. It is just my body-type which makes you conclude that I must be dieting. Your hasty conclusions may come off as rude to some. No, they do not, but I can pull them off. But did you know that XS is not always true to size and the right-sized jeans for me are the hardest to find? There is a difference between being skinny and healthy. Exercising can work both ways — it can help you lose weight as well as gain weight depending on the exercise you prefer.

Totally agree with this! Body shaming and bashing are not okay. Everyone needs to stop bashing because of our bodies. This world needs kind people. We need to be careful in everything we say. We must be kind to others and to ourselves. I could freaking relate with each and every point. This has been the same with me in the past, happening in the present and I know will go on in the future because we are living in a stereotypical society. Buy Now! Saturday, October 2, in.
