Body Shaming/Fat Shaming and bullying are a big deal. In all too many cases it can lead to suicide.
I found this on my Facebook feed. Someone took a picture of a girl at a street festival because he thought she was gross and it would be cool to make fun of her on Facebook. So almost 70 likes later and about the same amount of comments, half of which were by women saying how gross this girl was, I decided to make this blog calling this out and highlighting just how many women and men take part in fat shaming and body shaming. You’ll even see later on in the comments that a woman actually took another picture of the same girl and posted it to make fun of her. I would even dare to say that the women are even worse than the men. I was kind of surprised that I was the only person who commented saying this was wrong.
Of course none of these people were brave enough to say anything to this girls face. No no! They bravely cowered on Facebook behind her back and tore her down. What was her crime? Being out in public with clothes on.
