The report comments no thanks investigates the impact of body shaming, a form of aggression that involves negatively criticizing another’s body or appearance. Nearly two-thirds of women surveyed in a recent study say they are or have been the target of derogatory comments or insults about their bodies, particularly from friends, family and acquaintances.
Even if they are not intended to humiliate, criticize or cause harm (they are often even “disguised” with good intentions) and as common as they are, they are comments that interfere with well-being. At the very least, they are an unsolicited intrusion. In the worst case scenario, they can trigger problems as serious as eating disorders or depression. Mafalda Gameiro signs this journalistic work, with an image by Paulo Jorge, image editing by Carlos Valente and graphics by Margarida Rodrigues.
