Why is That we use Stereotypes to determine Someone?
We simply judge People by their appearance, weight and size.
Slim is beautiful. Fair is lovely. Sadly, these cliché still dictate the Indian mindset.
Body shaming, Color comparisons cellulite-related embarrassments are harsh realities that play havoc with the self-esteem of women.
Women have become conditioned to believing in the unrealistic standards of beauty set by society. Their self-worth is so very often decided by others’ perception of them.
Every body type and shape is different and has its own balance. What matters more than being slim is being fit and healthy.
Being dark skinned shouldn’t give anyone an inferiority complex, and being fair doesn’t make anyone more beautiful.
there is no such thing as a perfect body. The concept of perfection is in itself a flawed concept. Real beauty comes from within. The most beautiful people in the world are those who have a good heart.
Luckily social media is also putting efforts to change the mindset.
Hence CRAFTSVILLA, which is a leading clothing brand for women came forward with a powerful campaign called #JudgeMeNot Which focussed on the everyday Judgements that every women goes through.
Being a woman isn’t an easy task, Especially When people see a slightly healthy woman, they start passing judgements on their lifestyle, eating habits, routine and start body shaming them, no matter what they wear! They believe that being healthy (fat in their language) leads to a sad life, the society assumes that we are bound to certain things because of our weight and size, but believe me – a woman (be it fat or skinny) can do anything – from running a marathon to wearing a swimsuit.
After being body-shamed by many who advised me, don’t wear a sleeveless blouse, you will look fat! Saree is not meant for your figure, etc. I’m breaking these stupid stereotypes and wearing my most favorite Saree, This wouldn’t have been Possible without the support of CRAFTSVILLA who encouraged us to be what we are and Embrace our beauty.
To all the women out there, You all are beautiful in your own way, Don’t try and emulate someone else’s looks or personality. Be authentic – that’s what will make you stand out.
