The Grand Social Media Experiment. We learn by doing.

Chunky Cheerleader

1 Comment

I have struggled with body image difficulties my teen and adult life. I was always told that I was average or muscular. What does this mean? Not that I look good.  With social media and articles going viral in moments, we must be careful who’s toes we are stepping on and insulting. One comment can go a long, long way! Knowing what a physically strenuous job cheer leading is, I can’t understand why someone would suggest that  Kelsey Williams is chubby. See article about She is a beautifully fit woman. Good grief, she wears a size 4. That is pretty close to a zero. People are so quick to judge others. and when people judge they are very critical. This is damaging. In our society we are laughed at if we are overweight or different.

All bodies are uniquely different. short and more athletic frames are curvier as opposed to the tall slender model types. Any person when leaning to the side will have a bit of a roll in the abdomen. It is very hard to get in to the public image if you don’t have the correct, desirable face and body. We never see plain or ugly anchor people do we? Another place we see mainly beautiful people is in the entertainment business. It is far easier to get promoting when you are blessed with good looks. Social media has made it easier to become successful despite  your looks. Social media passes fame along with no prejudice. This makes popularity possible. Positive commenting goes along way in social media but negative goes faster and lasts longer. Pinterest has great examples of actual and photo shop retouches. Amazing.

This is where social media can put to rest comments like that. It is a chance to point out each persons positive and not say unkind things that confuse the female population into thinking we look bad if we are not rail thin. Social media was the direct result of this Houston news woman getting fired because she harshly judged the Cheer leader and asked for response from viewers and gave them 3 choices to sum up her body. Very unforgiving and I agree she deserved to loase her job over such hurtful commenting.

If you meet a controversy, just acknowledge comment, then agree to find the truth but I think we all are entitled to our own individual opinions.
