Body Shaming High School Principal Tells Teens Over Size 2 Not to Wear Leggings

My weight has gone up and down like a seesaw over the 41 years of my life. I’ve been worryingly skinny and I’ve been very heavy. I’m also a very sensitive person. To be honest when I’ve been very skinny many times it’s a direct reaction to someone’s comments about my figure when I was heavy.

My point is that it’s extremely dangerous – and insensitive – to comment on a woman’s figure and what they’re wearing, especially when they are teens. In my case, even if you compliment me when I’m skinny it has a negative impact. And it damn sure makes me feel like garbage if you make a scathing remark about my clothes when I’m overweight. So I felt for the girls at a South Carolina high school when I read the following story.
