BODY SHAMING

Body shaming has become a serious issue in our society. Body shaming is defined by bodyshaming.org as being “inappropriate, negative statements and attitudes toward another person’s weight or size.” It is a form of bullying and, as well as being humiliating, it can lead to short and long term psychological and health related issues. Body shaming occurs in three main ways, criticising yourself, criticising someone else in front of them, and criticising someone else behind their back.

Statistically, it has been said that 80% of humans find it hard to accept their faults and make corrections, but shouldn’t there be a limit to our ignorance and pride.

When a person either decides to be or is comfortable with his/her body and is willing to flaunt it, being comfortable with it which means their self-esteem is in check.
