Body shaming has become very prevalent these days.
While it has always been an issue. In the age of technology, people have the means to shame anyone on the Internet while they hide behind their anonymity and that is not even mentioning the ‘prank’ videos where the same thing happens and people just laugh. I am not going to debate what is healthy and whether overweight people should lose weight or not because that is not my place to say. After all, everyone has their personal problems that they’re dealing with and it is not our right to judge others.
However, it feels like the world is full of judgmental people who think they are in the right when they talk about how overweight people shouldn’t wear certain clothes even if a skinny person is wearing the same thing. And this has also caused a lot of people to not go to gyms because they are afraid that they will get shamed for their bodies. When people can’t even feel comfortable in their own skin then what has become of our society?
That is what happened in this particular instance. I won’t spoil anything for you so just scroll below to read the story for yourself.
Most parks are multi-use and they are set up in such a way that people can do whatever they want in these parks.
I mean, friendly people will come up to you to chat and it is pretty normal to do so but things weren’t what they seemed.
She didn’t say it outright at first but it was clear that she was implying something.
Her implications left the ladies pretty confused as it was pretty warm outside anyway.
She didn’t leave it at that and kept insisting that it was a family park until one of the ladies pointed at someone who was wearing the same clothes as her.
Now it was clear what she was trying to say but the poster of this story pushed her just a bit more.
Until she just came out and said it to her face outright.
This lady was clearly just body shaming but she didn’t want it to seem like that which is ridiculous.
She tried to backpedal but I think we all know what she had in mind.
To be fair, all of the things that she has mentioned are her problems, not the ones who are exercising.
Then she went on a tirade about how this was a family park and kept insisting that they were being indecent.
She even tried to threaten them with a police call which I find hilarious.
I honestly don’t understand what this woman expects these ladies to do. Should they exercise in some overalls or something similar? I mean it is 90 degrees out so who would wear anything other than shorts in such hot weather. I understand that some people just don’t like to see skin whether it is on a skinny person or an overweight one but that is their problem that they need to deal with, not impose it on others. This is why so many people don’t even try to get healthy and I speak from personal experience.
This is not the original picture but it should give you an idea about what sort of thing they were wearing.
People in the comments were 100% on her side and call the mother out for being ridiculous.
Some people even advised her to push this mother even further.
Being indecent on public property is being naked, and not wearing workout clothes.
Honestly, that would have been great to see.
I wonder what the police would have said if she called them.
What’s so wrong with a little bit of jiggle anyway?
I mean fat is soft so ofcourse it will move.
I wonder if she goes to people wearing bikinis at the beach and calls them out.
Save the children from what?
It is honestly sad to see this much body shaming in this day and age.
Workout clothes are not indecent at all!
It is honestly not far-fetched to call this woman crazy either.
