I heard that most of my life. It’s called “skinny shaming.”
As part of the body positive movement, thin people, primarily women, are speaking out against being marginalized.
It is categorically wrong to make someone who is thin feel bad about it. To tell a thin woman that she looks ill, or that she should eat more, is unacceptable.
BODY SHAMING OF ANY TYPE IS UNACCEPTABLE.
What I object to, is the use of the word “shame” associated with being skinny or fit. In today’s society, there is ZERO shame associated with being thin.
I’m genetically predisposed to being slender. I was a skinny kid, and once I grew into adulthood, particularly after pregnancy changed my body and age slowed my metabolism, I worked out and ate a very body-conscious diet.
Throughout my entire life, from childhood on, I was teased, shamed and ostracized because I was thin.
