Technology is one of the basic mediums to connect these days and communication is becoming very convenient. For example- Social media. It allows us to interact with people from different fields and different parts of the world. The best part is we become friends easily with new people.
Social media platforms have helped celebrities gain massive popularity that too in a short span of time. On the dark side, there are some people who intentionally stoop to their lowest level to abuse or troll celebrities.
On the other hand, some even cross their limits to body shame the actor or actresses, which is not really new to social media these days.
Celebrities have faced terrible experiences. We can’t expect to change things overnight, we have to do it brick by brick and results can be expected only in the long run.
But for the betterment of the country, it’s imperative we start teaching the kids of this generation to move in the right direction, a way which has no religious, cultural, racial or gender barriers, a way which highlights the importance of equality and a way which would take us to our desired destination, an “Incredible India”.
Meanwhile, television serial actress Sayantani Ghosh became the latest target. She took to her social media handle and shared a strong message about body positivity. Besides that, she also narrated an incident when a social media user had asked her, about her bra size during an interactive session on Instagram.
“In one of my interactive sessions someone asked me my bra size! Though I gave that person a befitting reply. Still, I feel there is so much more I want to talk about. As any form of Body-Shaming is bad. But I struggle to wrap my head around the fact that what is the fascination towards female BREASTS? As to what size it is? A cup, B, C, D etc? And it’s not only the boys, even we girls have this sort of a conditioning!”
Her note further read, “There are few parts to such mental conditioning…1.Why it is so difficult to accept that it’s just another body part? “I know it has a meaning when it comes to a nursing mother or certain purposes of passion but in the isn’t it another body part? What we don’t realize is that such perspectives or hype over the female breast, throw few of us women, in fact, more women get into a very bad headspace.”
Her next post read, “2. Where is the concept of self-love and self-acceptance? Few of us who are well-endowed start feeling conscious about it, and start hoping that ‘I wish I was flat or small chested’ and few of us feel the need for implants’.”
“3. It’s time to stop: The next part of my thought is, who gives such rights to men? Why do men feel you are entitled to look at a woman this way or talk to her this way? Maybe it’s us…yes girls it’s us for tolerating this shit and not speaking up!,” read a part of Sayantani’s post.
“Honestly I like a large cup – well obviously being a coffee lover I would like a large cup of coffee,” read a part of her post.
