Transcript of What Will You Gain When You Shut Up.

What Will You Gain When You ?
when society permits and affirms that certain traits and/or characteristics are only present in particular classes or groups of individuals..
Permitting a Negative focus and Worth on Appearance
Affirming as Gender Typical
Reinforcing others to comfortably display this stereotypical behavior:
- negatively commenting on yourself
-agreeing with other females about having certain "imperfections"
-making other females uncomfortable when they make positive comments on appearance
This traps females into believing that self-bashing is gender and socially appropriate.
Girls are not suppose to overtly express confidence in their appearance..

Shut Down Fat Talk is great and all..
but arnt you being a little hypercritical?

Depression that is associated with body dissatisfaction strives off the patriarchal idea that a specific woman's body fosters her true worth. The harmful effects of self bashing are not often considered nor effectively dealt with because it's correlation with low self-esteem is seen as a "woman's issue." However it is not. Girls often
to and then are reinforced to hate their bodies from friends, family and media. Thus, it becomes inevitable that these behaviors become habitual.

Remember: Love your body and treat it right; but it is not the most important thing you own.
Depression and Self-loathing
Shouldn't be consistently represented like this..
How not to permit: Dismiss any negative comments about appearance. Dont treat low self esteem as gender typical for females!
How not to affirm: Don't be scared to overtly display confidence in your appearance and in yourself!! Focus on what is really important (ie education, career, family) and stop comparing your body. Reject damaging images and anything that trivializes a woman's confidence in and love for herself.
Girl A: Im fat and Im ugly..
Girl B: it's silly to think that weight and appearance are even remotely relevant to beauty or your amount of confidence. Beautiful people shine only from the inside out and the way you feel on the inside has nothing to do with the way you look on the outside.
Remember: being confident reminds others that they too should be confident.
I know you've never loved the crinkles by your eyes when you smile,
You've never loved your stomach or your thighs
The dimples in your back at the bottom of your spine

But i'll love them endlessly

I know you've never loved the sound of your voice on tape
You never want to know how much you weigh
You still have to squeeze into your jeans

But you're perfect to me
- One D
Self-fulfilling prophecy..
Girl A: I need a nose job.
Girl B: then what?
Girl A: Then Ill be prettier and ill love myself.
Girl B: y'know.. you can't buy self-satisfaction.. and it definitely does not stem from appearance
My goal: Eliminate body-insecurity as a woman's problem.
New's flash: you are able to love yourself and your deserve to.
When a female self-bashes she is suggesting to other's around her that a female's appearance holds first priority; implying that women are, in fact, suppose to be the attractive gender. Also, she is supporting that 'beautiful' has one specific look.
I hope one day that it is as odd for a girl to say shes ugly or fat as it is for a guy to say he's fat..
However there is no genetic disposition for insecurity..
So.. is this trait of frequent self bashing has to be influenced by gender socialization and by friends, family and media ?
Young boy's tendency to self-bash is not nearly as high as girl's
Focus but dont love
Remind friends and yourself that appearance does not represent worth or beauty or guarantee happiness.
You may not realize but..
One D suggesting to young girls that it is normal to always be dissatisfied with your body and implying that they need to find a companion before their true worth may be recognized.
Challenging the chicken!
Dont have to change yourself to love yourself; just
your attitude.
Self-love through change of attitude, not appearance.

Believing a woman may find her worth in her appearance or that they are in need of certain physical traits to be beautiful, confident
Scenario 1
Scenario 2
Girls often manipulate and harm their bodies in search for fulfillment.
