Television actor Sayantani Ghosh, who was requested by a troll about her bra measurement earlier this week, shared a strong notice on Instagram towards physique shaming. Her prolonged Instagram publish talked towards the sexualisation of the breasts, emphasised the significance of self-love, questioned the entitlement of males who make such remarks and urged girls to talk up for themselves.
“Does size really matter?” learn the primary slide of Sayantani’s publish. She urged everybody ‘tired of talking about the size of (their) body parts’ to provide the publish a learn.
“Yesterday in one of my interactive sessions someone asked me my bra size! Though I gave the person a befitting reply (which btw a lot of you appreciated) still I felt there is so much more I want to talk about.. Any form of BODY SHAMING is BAD!! Period. But particularly, I struggle to wrap my head around the fact that what is this fascination towards female BREASTS ?? As to what size it is ?? A cup, B, C or D etc ?? And it’s not only the boys, even us girls have this sort of a conditioning!” she wrote.
Sayantani reiterated that breasts have been ‘just another body part’ and questioned the ‘hype’ round them. “There are few parts to such mental conditioning. 1: Why is it so difficult to accept that it’s just another body part?? I know it has meaning when it comes to a nursing mother or certain purposes of passion, but in the end isn’t it another body part ??? What we don’t realise is that such perspectives or hype over the female breast, throw few of us women, in fact most women get into a very f**ked up head space!” she wrote.
Giving a reminder concerning the want for self-love, Sayantani mentioned that many ladies really feel aware concerning the measurement of their breasts, and this influences selections equivalent to selection of clothes. “2: Where is the concept of Self- acceptance and Self-love ?? 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!!! Remember those times when you went to buy a nice pair of dress and the only reason you didn’t buy it because either your breasts looked too small or big in it ?? It’s like we are never good enough !! We are so uncomfortable even talking about it!!” she wrote.
“3: IT’S TIME TO STOP The next part of my thoughts is, who gives such rights to men?? Why do men feel that you are entitled to look at a woman this way or talk to her this way?? May be it’s us ..yes girls its us for tolerating this sh*t and not speaking up! Often we shy away from facing these men due to a feeling of shame, or avoiding such points so that we don’t create a scene and the list of reasons can go on… I too have kept quiet so many times feeling uncomfortable when I saw a man staring at my breasts!!” she added.
Sayantani then posed a query to males and requested how they’d really feel if the tables have been turned. She additionally urged girls to talk up for themselves, in the event that they felt disrespected or have been subjected to physique shaming of any form.
In conclusion, Sayantani wrote that the one measurement that issues needs to be of 1’s coronary heart. “In a world where the ‘Human Race’ itself is struggling for its existence, ‘SIZE MATTERS’ — so let’s all have a large heart which is full of love, self-love, self-respect and respect for one another, compassion, acceptance and lots of empathy!!!” she wrote.
“And to conclude! Hey YOU!!! Love yourself! Accept yourself! Respect yourself! and well next time some one asks me my cup size I sure as hell know what to say .. Honestly I like a large cup – well obviously being a coffee lover I would like a large cup of coffee,” she added.
