Autocomplete's Body Shaming

April 12, 2014 1 min read

Two articles on the Militant Baker, one about skinny shaming, and the other about fat hate, both from the lens of a search engine autocomplete, created great images which illustrate why body shaming is not okay. It was influenced by the Feminist Autocomplete picture series. The first article was mainly aimed at fat shaming, saying what I’ve said a million times before, but that I will keep saying: all bodies are good bodies. She brings up a few pretty telling statistics:
  • 81% of 10 year olds are afraid of being fat. And they're more afraid of fat than they are of cancer, war, or losing both of their parents.
  • A survey of girls 9-10 years old revealed that 40% of them have already tried to lose weight.
  • 95% of people with eating disorders are between the ages of 12 and 25.
  • Approximately 91% of women are unhappy with their bodies
  • only 4% would openly call themselves beautiful.
4%? FOUR PERCENT would openly call themselves beautiful. That is not okay. autocomplete body shaming autocomplete-body2 autocomplete-body   The article ended with a call for people to make their own posters with a slogan about weight hate.   Then a few days later a second article came out due to the amazing response that the first article generated. This time it was about skinny shaming, and why it’s just as bad as fat shaming. auto complete body shaming4 auto complete body shaming2 auto complete body shaming Pro-fat shouldn’t be anti-skinny, and vice versa. BODY love, BODY acceptance – ALL BODIES, fat and skinny alike. Check out the original articles and make your own poster if you like.
