  1. I know this goes on. In a way, I am body shamed because I am so thin. I have never heard anybody make a remark about somebodys’ weight if they were large. Maybe I tune them out or something. But you can bet your sweet bippy that if I ever did hear something, I would light into them like a banshee from hell!
