A Pakistani video is breaking the internet today as women tell disturbing tales of how they have been shamed all their lives and childhood due to their 'imperfect' body.

Bullyproof, a social awareness campaign in Pakistan, asked women to talk about their body-shaming episodes that they faced in childhood and what taunts they got from the society.

Zainab Chughtai, a Lahore-based criminal lawyer, made this video where Pakistani women revealed the ways they have been body-shamed and the effect it has had on them since then.

Body-shaming and its effects

What the women had to say was truly horrible and disturbing. The girls were told that they were fat, downright ugly, dark and they are not suitable enough for marriage. Some of them even broke down in the video as they were narrating their tales.

Some of them were told that "kids in Africa were malnourished as they had eaten up all their food" and that "they look vulgar when they lie down".

"I was told that the grave that had to be dug for me had to be pretty deep", "Moti..gaindi", "How will you get married?" : this is what the family members and friends of these women had to say to them every day.

In this day and age it is horrible to see that such people still exist that they only look for superficial beauty and not the inner beauty of a person. This is not the right kind of message that we should be giving to our kids. Recently, even actress Parineeti Chopra had said that she had to lose weight due to "Bollywood pressure".
