Chowder Head posted a topic in Wide World of SnarkPlayboy Model Body Shamed A Woman At Gym to her twitter, and facebook page. She says it was suppose to just go to a friend (which is beside the point) and says "If I can't unsee this, you can't either. What a vile woman. No way do I think this was an "accident" . She should have never ever taken that photo period. This is why some people don't go to a gym. metro.co.uk/2016/07/14/playboy-model-apologises-for-mocking-gym-goers-naked-body-on-snapchat-6007031/ lifebuzz.com/dani-mathers/ bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/article/36793908/playboy-model-dani-mathers-apologises-for-body-shaming insideedition.com/headlines/17519-ex-playboy-playmate-ripped-for-fat-shaming-naked-woman-in-gym-locker-room-on-snapchat has a video
Over the weekend, KTLA weather reporter Liberté Chan was given a sweater on-camera from a male colleague and told to cover up because they were getting a lot of emails apparently complaining about the sleek cocktail dress she was wearing. http://www.rawstory.com/2016/05/male-ktla-anchor-forces-meteorologist-to-cover-her-dress-were-getting-a-lot-of-emails/ When I first saw this come across my FB newsfeed, I was thinking, "Utah is at it again." But this is Los Angeles. Seriously--who the fuck is complaining about something like this in LA? Personally, I see nothing wrong with what she was wearing. What does it matter?!? The station needs to grow a pair of balls and tell those people who emailed that her attire was completely fine. If we keep letting people like this pick away at women's attire (and some of the other things we discuss on this forum), where will it end? ETA: OK, I've just found a clarification. The station didn't require her to put on the sweater. There *were*, however, emails about her dress being in appropriate, but her male colleague gave her the sweater as a way to poke fun at the pearl-clutchers. Still, to know that there are people trying to police these things is frustrating. http://lifeofliberte.com/personal-thoughts-on-the-sweater-incident-that-went-viral/
I guess it's never too young to start girls out on the great road toward body self-loathing. If we can get them worried about their bathing suit choice at age 9-10 to cover up where it's "too curvy on top" , maybe we can have them so insecure they can graduate on up to buying spendy facial lotion, lipo, and fillers at the tender age of 14-15. http://nymag.com/thecut/2016/05/discovery-girls-mag-helps-instill-body-issues.html?mid=twitter_cut
This just came across my newsfeed, and I'm absolutely livid: http://www.seventeen.com/life/school/news/a39626/high-school-puts-out-disturbing-body-shaming-video-to-outline-prom-dress-code/ Make sure you view the video. This video makes it look like even *completely covered* body parts are criminal and unacceptable. Really? The false riot and outrage, and the one "judge" gagging like what she had seen was completely disgusting? And the males being the "authorities" on what is acceptable and not acceptable? These people need to be shouted down wherever we encounter them in our schools. The teenage female body should not be criminalized in this way.
