In beauty is in the eye of the beholder, we take an honest look at the trend of fat and skinny shaming that is so prevalent on social media nowadays.
It’s really difficult not to go onto a social media site nowadays and not see at least one post where someone is pointing out that the person in the picture is too thin or too fat… or pointing out a part of a (usually female) body, that honestly is usually far from visually appealing, and harping on about how this is definitely sexy.
It’s also impossible to pick up a woman’s magazine and not see some sort of ‘who looked good and who looked terrible’ type of feature, often analysing the usually more wobbly bits of some celebrity’s body.
Most often, these kinds of activities are often known as fat shaming, and involve pointing out how bad or less-than-perfect most women’s bodies are. In extreme cases the posts will attack obesity head on in a very denigrating manner.
