I can’t decide if I’m feeling more angry or sad after watching this video. Perhaps just a dash of hope thrown in for good measure?
What do you think?
I watched this video late last night and was too tired to really analyse my feelings. This morning I woke up appalled that these women were shamed on a visceral and public level about their levels of internalised body-hate/dislike. And some of them commenting so dishearteningly that they needed to do more work on themselves nearly broke my heart.
The ‘hope’ I expressed has more to do with women watching the video and thinking about why we see ourselves negatively, not just self-blaming.
