I have been reading a lot of article about “plus-size” or about “skinny shaming” and I say STOP THE SHAMING!!!
Personally I’ve had a lot of problems with this from others and it is something that I’ve noticed has been happening a lot more in the last couple of years. When I’ve had a lot of problems with this, all the guys in my family are tall and skinny. Now for some reason over the last couple of years I have continually been asked if my brother, cousin, Uncle are alright, because they don’t like they’ve been eating. Hereditary-wise my family are all skinny until we get to about 30 and then it’s all downhill. Even my Dad’s nickname was “Bones” because of how skinny he was, and he’s not any-more.
The main issue I have with this topic is I have yet to see someone take responsibility for how they feel. No one is saying “Why do I feel this way?” Everyone just blames magazines and models and celebrities (or is some cases I’ve seen some women blame men) “We can’t control what our kids do and see”. I’m sorry, these people don’t owe us anything. The model, the magazine, the celebrity…They don’t actually owe us anything and I highly doubt that their intentions are too make us feel bad about ourselves? When did it become the responsibility of those who are unknown to us, the outer influences, to make ourselves feel good about ourselves?
