The relationship between Body shaming and social media

After some research what the scientists have said that women are likely to feel worse about their body after seeing the pictures of other women. The online images have bad effect on young women and it changes the way they feel about their bodies, the confidence vanishes away.

The edited and the filtered images have a bad impact on the minds of the young women nowadays. The social media has actually pressured women to fit into society’s definition of beauty and perfection. The views that they have for their bodies and what they feel about themselves changes because they are more into fakeness of the social media rather being into themselves.

The trends in social media change every day and so as the interests of the women. One day, social media will woe women to have big breasts and the other day, it will haunt women to have small breasts. The newest trend nowadays is to have a curvy body with a small waist. The new trends and the looks that come along into the society in what women tries to get into and feels ashamed if fails to fit into the society.

The social media is making women horribly uncomfortable which leads to low self-esteem and lack of confidence.

The social media targets women to suffer from body shaming and negativity. It leads to eating disorders among young girls in high school and the university.

If we take the plus-sized women’s example, ten years ago plus sized women typically ranged from size twelve to eighteen, now the size span ranges from size six to fourteen. The slim-slender women are called as “Models” but the chubby models are called as “plus-sized models” so why do the plus-sized models are not called as just “models”.

Social media has an impact on the mental as well as physical health of the women. The women have no idea that how Photoshop play a great role in editing and removing the flaws from the images of the models. In some ways, Graphic Designers are to blame for this uprising of smaller sized women posted all over the media. These people are hired by editors to make models or people look a specific way.

I strongly believe that if we try to inherit the looks and bodies of the models then we will be just robots, not what we actually are. If social media would try and produce more positive viewing of different body types, women would feel more comfortable and confident about the way they look. Social media plays a major role in our life now and women are considered nothing more than objects to social media, based on how their bodies are.

Social media needs to start taking into consideration the strong negative effects that influence societies the averaged sized women.

Every other celebrity goes through the shame situation after those ridiculous comments.
