Fat Shaming – Our Culture Actually Promotes It

Years of being oppressed by the media, clothing, beauty industry and even friends and family, we may grow out of the discomfort caused by everything but it will be very hard to forget all that pain. Sometimes you need some body-positive merchandise to uplift your mood. Just by 1%. What you get is a random person commenting on your body and it IS fat shaming!

Stressing out over the food you have eaten will cause much greater damage to your health than the food itself. Confidence breeds beauty.

“haye Allah kitna khaati ho tum?”

 “Pictures mein to itni smart aati ho?”

 “thora khaya kro na”

“khud pay reham kro, shaadi kon kery ga tumse?”

“tauba hay bai, jisam dekho kesy phel rha hy!”

Hey you, yes you! Cannot you stop passing comments? Maybe the person you are passing comments is suffering from internal problem already? Or maybe he/she has got the broader bone. They can’t be as smart as you are. Has someone made fun of you for being this slim? Is it a tag for being beautiful? Or the society won’t accept a fat person and has accepted you already?

Your body needs as much as love you give to others. Have you ever realized this fact? Your body is always surviving with you. It is trying to keep you alive and move on in your daily routine. It makes sure that you breathe while you sleep, fixing broken bones finding ways to beat the illness that might get you.

It needs you acceptance and love. Body confidence does not come from trying to achieve a set target of weight and an ideal body shape that the society will accept. It comes from embracing the one you already have. Yes you can work on it but not starve yourself to death to get the ideal body.

Apparently some people are not getting the memo, though it is 2k19 and people are more educated and well aware of many things. Body positivity is about respect, not who you think is more beautiful attractive and healthy.

Many people are fat/obese because:

  1. Genetics
  2. Medication side effect
  3. Hormones
  4. Slow metabolism
  5. Illness
  6. Pregnancy issues
  7. Stress eaters
  8. Body structure

“She is skinny, she needs to gain weight. Bachy kesy paida kro gi agar kuch khao gi nahi?”

“Bohat moti ho bachy kesy paida kro gi? Loose some weight!”

“aise nahi smjh ayegi. Miyaan bahir moo maray ga or aurtoo mein tb rona beth k”

Oiii! Stop being judgmental.

A skinny would give birth to a child with will of Allah and same for the fat lady you were making fun of.

You need to stop judging and poking nose in others matters and you need to stop fat shaming others.

All bodies need to be respected as they hold a full fledge human being that strives to survive in this barbarian world full of jokers and senseless human beings.

Work on your body for your health, for your happiness, not to make the world happy.

Sexy is a mindset and we need to change our mindset accordingly.
