Skinny shaming is body shaming , fat shaming is body shaming. Stop making the victims of skinny shaming feel bad for talking about it . Growing up I was plus size and much bigger than I am today and my sister was skinny . She was the person who got mocked the most.
None is worse than the other. People called her broom stick, always said she should add some flesh and how is she letting her younger sister eat all the food. People would say she looked like a bag of bones and I’m not saying I did not get shamed but I had it easier than her.
On person talking about their experience with body shaming doesn’t invalidate the other persons own experience with body shaming . People you people should stop having selective empathy.
I know how many times right infront of me people told my sister African men like their women thick so she better add flesh and stop acting like a white girl. It is very unfair that skinny women want to talk about their experience and you would shut them up because of yours .
I have had my fair share of fat shaming and it took me to a point of anorexia, yes I suffered from anorexia does the fact I went through that invalidate the struggles of skinny women ? No it does not because I saw the effect of skinny shaming on my sister and I know she cried.
I saw the way my sister looked at herself insecure and I saw the way it made her feel even though she tried to hide it . If 5 people commented on my weight at least 10 people would call her “skinny boko or leke leke”
We are all victims of body shaming . Fat girls and skinny girls , all of us. Instead of throwing jabs at someone else for talking about their experience we should console each other and try to share our experiences. Iv been disappointed since yesterday. Do better!
