Upworthy – Challenging body-shaming


Shaming seems to have become a bloodsport in our culture. It arises from damage and perpetuates damage. There is never any justification for it, and it seems to us deeply important to challenge it – as many of us as possible, as often as possible. No-one deserves to be shamed or attacked for how their body looks. As the film says ‘The size of my body is none of your business’.

We think she rocks. Much power to her running, and the rest.
