I have a weird relationship with the term "body shaming." In some instances, being ridiculed for my weight and the way I looked, even if it was unintentional, absolutely saved my life.
I started eating healthier, became more active, and am now doing things in the gym I only used to dream about. I mean, I'm realizing just how unfit I am compared to some other fitness buffs out there, but overall, my quality of life has improved. And I have body shaming to thank for that.
However, there are some people who body shame people in some really just disgusting and sometimes criminal ways. Like when model Dani Mathers Snapchatted a nude 71-year-old woman changing in a locker room at a Los Angeles area gym a while back.
All of the outrage brought a lot of attention to Mathers and she was eventually charged with misdemeanor invasion of privacy and had to fess up to what she did in a court of law.
If the case had gone to trial, she may have faced up to six months in jail.
Do you think she should be registered as a sex offender? Or is a month of manual labor and 3 years' probation enough?
