Combatting Body ShamingBook - 2017 | First Edition.
In the West, overweight people are shamed daily for their "poor choices" and their "lack of self-discipline." But thin people can be shamed, too, we assume they are anorexic or desperate to keep up with Hollywood standards. Then there are the female athletes who should be celebrated for their strength and power but are deemed "masculine." How can anyone feel good about his or her body? This important resource for female and male students alike uses real-life examples to explore the concept and harmful consequences of body shaming, as well as what to do if it happens to them.
