The advent of social media has opened up Pandora’s box of opinions, suggestions, abuses, and obnoxious comments and questions that society couldn’t throw at our faces in the real world. This has what trolls on social media resort to doing. And actresses are top targets for such online hate and over time some of these Boss babes have mastered the art of hitting back at trolls in the classiest way possible.
TV actress Sayantani Ghosh was recently asked about her bra size during her latest Instagram live session. While she managed to shut the troll with her epic reply
the actress also shared a long post on body shaming and questioned if size does really matter.
In her note, she mentioned, “Yesterday in one of my interactive sessions someone asked my bra size! Though I gave the person a befitting reply (which btw a lot of your 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!”
Ghosh questioned the hype around breasts as they are “just another body part.” She further wrote,
“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!”
Furthermore, reminding women of self-love, she said that women get conscious about the size of their breasts and that influences their choice of clothes as well.
“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!!”
“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 further added that women should speak up when men stare at their breasts. “Par ab bahut ho gaya!!! It’s enough, I think ladies it’s high time we start loving ourselves coz no one else will! Speak up reply to anyone who disrespects you in any way, body-shames you in any way… man or woman.”
She then asked men how they would feel if the tables were turned.
She concluded her note by asking her fans and followers to love, respect, and accept themselves.
