Raven Samson started this petition to National Eating Disorder Association (NEDA) has stepped up to fight against body shaming

 Today, individuals are more accepting of being different from others however with the pressure from social media, young individuals are more prone to want to look a certain way. Negative comments and provoking images can drive young girls to engage in unhealthy behaviors in order to change their body type to conform to the norms of society. This may lead to self-injury or cutting, binging and purging behaviors or even full-fledged eating disorders. Individuals with a history of trauma, depression, self-harm, low self-esteem, or borderline personality disorder are more likely to be affected by body shaming and potentially develop an eating disorder or engage in self-harm behavior Like with any other from of bullying, body shaming will always be present unless you stick up for yourself in a positive and healthy way. It is important to practice self-love and try to not let negative comments bother you Furthermore if you witness body shaming on social media you can report it and flag it for inappropriate content  Keep in mind that entering a negative cycle of comments does not do any good in this situation. Take control and stay positive.
