“When it came down to my size, I felt like I just wasn’t beautiful because I didn’t look healthy enough in the eyes of my peers.” -Tanisha Davis
When we think of weight issues, many instantly think of women of a larger size that are possibly struggling with their weight. Honestly many will be surprised to know that there are skinny, or slim women who suffer from the anxiety of not being able to gain weight. We are constantly body shamed daily about our low weight and it’s not a good feeling. You will hear rude questions and comments constantly like, “Do you eat?”, “Girl you need to gain some weight,” and “Why are you at the gym?”.
Hearing these statements and questions has driven so many women to undergo surgery are to involve themselves in numerous amounts of medication and forced eating to try to gain weight that will be deemed “healthy” in the sight of others.
Today on Starrdom100 Radio I shared my personal experiences with being skinny as a young child and even how I deal with the issue today. My goal is to inspire young women who the world considers to be underweight and skinny to love yourself just the way God made you to be regardless of what anyone has to say.
Body shaming is a form of bullying and we as women need to stop shaming one another because of our size and learn to embrace our differences.
