[ #Opinion ] Body Shaming | #Guestpost by Priti Sagar |

When I asked Priti to do a blog post on body shaming, she was excited and told me she will work on it ASAP. I was thrilled to hear her excitement, when she called to tell me – its done!!!

True to her story telling nature, Priti has chosen a childhood incident from her own life to talk about how she was teased and shamed over the way her body looked.

I love the way she has used sketches to highlight her story!!

Do you think this is your story too? Would you like to add to it? Maybe you  have a few questions for Priti? What do you think of this?

We would love to hear from you dear readers as to how you feel about this topic !!!

This is a Guest post written for a campaign on my blog for creating an awareness on how much we put others or ourselves down on physical aspects, personality traits, financial status, perceived notions and mindsets conditioned by years of nonsensical vagaries.

Popularly called Body/Slut shaming, its gripping us all in epic proportions on a psychological levels and creating havoc in the minds of the young women and men who are more susceptible to peer pressure or should I say “Peer pleasure” ?

Look forward to seeing my readers reaction to this and many more to come!

  1. Love the creative way in which Priti has told her story. It irks me how people will pick on your body if it doesn’t fit the mould of what they want.

    1. I know what you are saying Sanchie – I am so thrilled with the way Priti has done this post!! Thank for liking it!

    2. Thanks dear. It indeed is surprising, how people create and standards and benchmarks. Physical and personality based. It a struggle to live outside these moulds.

  2. How true that people love to shame us and don’t feel in the least bit inhibited people what they think. What if we went up to them and just said ” Hey you insensitive boor have I ever told you how rude you are?” And yes, the flat chested ones are the best nursing mothers whose babies are really happy making others wonder what they are being fed on!

    1. Yes Sunita – its a terrible thing for us to go through, especially women who are further condoned by women only! All our self consciousness over our figures and clothes, etc stems from this derision of our self esteem by our peers only!

    2. Hahaha.. the milk supply shocked me too. But no one praised my assets, just wore a a silent curious look.

      And yes, i will like to check with these people and tell them how much my self esteem was damaged!

I would love to hear what you thought of this post
