Our "Shaming" Culture

Thursday, April 16, 2015
Today we take a break from our regular "Behind the Seams" feature to just have a little chat as girls and people in general. In our Instagram obsessed culture there is a new trend called shaming where people are called out in public usually on the Internet , in an embarrassing way about an aspect of their Body.


Shaming excludes no one .. you could be a celebrity or a regular person. You will still be called out for something or the other. Celebrity Kelly Clarkson , was recently fat shamed by a Fox Anchor because of her post pregnancy weight and he alluded that she literally blew up. Chrissy Tiegan ( John Legends' Wife ) was body shamed because of a picture she posted on Instagram where her stretch marks were visible. The shaming trend is a new form of bullying which mainly takes place in Cyber space and can be done by just about anyone alot of which have a fake profiles just for this purpose.

Ways to overcome "shaming"
  • Spend less time on Social Media
  • Be realistic about the situation
  • Don't be afraid to confront your shamers
  • Respond with something positive ( like Kelly Clarkson )

  1. I think this is terrible, and shows the worst side of people. It has not happened to me, but if it did i think I would have to leave social media for a while.

  2. People can be so cruel, especially when they're hiding behind a computer screen. I really wish people would keep their comments to themselves if they are not positive or constructive.

  3. It's so awful that so many people can only tear others down. I don't see it happen on my social media, which means I'm following and friends with the right people.

  4. I think people forget that their is another person on the side of what they are saying. It's awful. The disconnect.

  5. This is so sad. Women get a lot of pressure for so much and it just makes it so much worst when people blatantly shame you, like their own shit never stinks.

  6. Sometime I just can't believe what people say on social media. I can't believe how heartless people can be, both children and adults. Social media propagates this.... it's so shameful.

  8. I find that they people doing the shaming have low opinions of them self and need to direct it at others. All this fat shaming of Kelly and Pink is just ridiculous.

  9. It saddens me that we have come so far in so many areas, and then we still have people who bully and shame others. Shame on them.

  12. Shaming is an extremely outrageous thing and I can't even believe it's a trend. EveryBODY deserves to feel beautiful.

  13. People can be real jerks when concealed with the anonymity of the internet. Its sad that we talk about children bullying, yet adults do it every day and its ok. We need to set a better example for the children.

  14. I agree. I wish there wasn't so much shaming going on and instead people minded their own business.

  17. The interesting thing about this is that even if you're not the victim, seeing this type of behavior online can really affect your overall mood and outlook, especially if you spend a lot of time on social media. I'm not sure what the answer is, but it's a trend that needs to reverse.

  18. I try and stay away from social media and it's a shame that people shame each other over body weight.
