We often talk about stereotypes and unrealistic expectations and wonder if they will ever end. But whenever someone steps up and decides to do something about it, we often just see it on social media and scroll the post down within seconds because frankly, most of us find it boring to talk about such issues being dragged too much. Well honestly, talking about old hat issues might sound like a cliché but there a few problematic areas that remain unresolved and need urgent attention because ignoring them have only pushed them to become the underlying belly of our society. Now, you might be wondering as to why I am getting so riled up? Okay, no more suspense, the reason why I sound so stern is because I want to talk about “Body Shaming”. I mean, how many times have you heard someone say, that you should start dieting or you should pay attention to yourself, just because you are curvy. Don’t the comments make you want to kill the person lowkey?
I know, I know my last comment was a little psychotic hahaha , so I am just gonna delve into the reason why the society is such a nightmare sometimes. It’s because we see a certain, unrealistic image of a body type 24/7 and it just gets drilled into our minds. Celebrities and social media are to blame. How often is it that we see a curvy woman be a lead in a superhit movie or a curvy woman walk on the ramp and be the showstopper of a fashion show? The chances are either zero or negligibly low. My point exactly . As feminists of the modern world, do you really think we should just tolerate the comments and let the situation be? No, right? And that’s exactly the reason why we need to step up our game and act like the girl bosses we are. Next time, when you hear someone say something about your size, rather than spoiling your mental health just step up. Talk back and let the person know that’s he/she is wrong. Size shouldn’t be a factor when it comes to judging someone. All of us are beautiful in some way or the other. A few of us might have a beautiful smile or outer looks and a few of us might have the sharpest and the most beautiful brains. Either way, the society needs to learn to not judge and that can only happen if we know our self-worth. So let’s take it upon ourselves to fix the situation.
