A number of people today have either experienced body shaming or are grappling with the impact of body shaming influenced by the media or through socialization. However, the bigger question is do we really focus on the impact body shaming has, not just for adults but also for young children? It also has a huge impact on the mental health of people who have witnessed or experienced body shaming. As a society and as humans we need to be sensitive to the kind of behaviours and communication we have with people around us. With the freedom of speech also comes right to live a dignified life!
