Most people would rightly say that they think fat shaming is wrong. But most people wouldn’t think anything of skinny shaming.
I can’t count how many times on Facebook or in real life that I hear people saying, “Jeez, get this girl a cheeseburger!” Or, “Put some meat on those bones!”
Why doesn’t she eat? Maybe she does. Maybe she eats all the time. Maybe she has a medical condition. Maybe it’s a plethora of different things you don’t fucking know.
“She’s so lucky, I wish I could be like that.” You just don’t know.
Putting down anyone to make yourself feel better is of course wrong. But this double standard in particular irks me.
