Body shaming goes both ways and it has to stop!
Body shaming isn't restricted to young girls it affects us all including boys.
And it is worrying.
We should be mindful of what you say to people , we really should .
Instead of perhaps saying "Blimey when so and so was younger but now they really look like they have shed the timber " ( This was my son that they were talking about )
The pursuit of the body beautiful is squarely at the door of social media , thats not the whole story but media in the various guises through the years has played its part as has society.
Our young people are very vulnerable and we have to be so very careful we need to help young people in the balancing act of life and the words you use they have an affect. I found myself saying "
You are like a twig , you'll snap "
I have stopped in my tracks as this isn't what I need to be saying especially with a teenager going off to university next year and I am not ready to own a university student yet . Sensibility needs to start at home , sensibility needs to filter through to the media.
I have just got home and looked an an email and again in a round about way it was related to body shaming pointing the finger at Jennifer Aniston and how to avoid those bloating foods.
Stop the body shaming ~ size is size .
