Straight Talk

Hey lovelies,

As my Aunt Wendy would say, straight talk makes for straight understanding! So let’s talk. What’s with people and body/fat shaming ?! I have been experiencing that a lot lately and whilst I don’t let the comments hurt me, I’m shocked at the fact that people think it’s acceptable to body-shame other people. Believe it or not, a lot of people have been calling me fat and I’m just like bish where?! Lol!  Imagine people who don’t know you feel like they need to monitor your weight and tell you about every pound you lose or gain! Sometimes on Instagram, I see a lot of comments fat-shaming Rihanna. I think people have lost the sense of ‘minding their own business’. I bet a lot of people can relate to random people, friends and family members body-shaming you. When will people realise it is not ok?!

We need to do better as individuals. Someone’s weight is not your business & you certainly shouldn’t speak on it (except you are asked by the individual in question). It’s just not your place!

Why do you think people body-shame others ? Why do people feel like they have a right to tell you about your body? It’s your body; your rules and your choices. Don’t ever let anyone make you feel insecure about your body. If there is something you want to change about your body, work towards it, but during that journey to reach your goals, hold your head high & don’t endorse such negativity.

Have you ever been body-shamed before? I’m thinking of doing a YouTube video about body-shaming experiences, so please share your stories below. Let me know if you would want to see a video on this.

See you next Sunday! Slay this week:)

  1. Yooooo
    You would think in a world that is becoming more and more socially liberal that body shaming would slowly be phasing out but it’s the complete opposite
    it’s worse with the internet actually, people feel very entitled to express their opinions about your appearance on social media
    mostly just my dad talks about my weight, but i guess that’s excused, he’s my dad
    and Nigerian parents talk about weight in the most hilarious ways lol
    Can’t wait for the YT video, girl!

    And that bag is gorgeous !

    1. I know right! I can’t believe in this day and age, it is still very present in our society. Yeah! the internet is crazy for that. I remember someone left a comment on my youtube channel saying something about me being fat and how I should kill myself lol! People prefer to hide behind the internet to express such negativity. Haha I think parents get a pass; they have such funny ways of talking about weight. I have learnt not to take it personal lol. Thanks sweetie! I’ll start working on that soon.
