Tia Mowry Slams Body Shamers With A Beautiful Message About Body Positivity
It's unfortunate that this world can at times be beyond cruel and judgement. For example, after people apparently couldn't help but criticize her body, Tia Mowry promoted body positivity in an amazing way. Some people have been wondering whether the actress is pregnant based on her figure. First and foremost, Mowry is not pregnant, as she has already explained via Instagram. And now, the Sister, Sister star is speaking out, slamming body shamers, and proving that words are hurtful and that something needs to change when it comes to how the world sees beauty.
In an interview with HuffPost Live, the 37-year-old said,
I am not pregnant, I am just happy. I've gained these extra 10 [or] 15 pounds because of my cooking show [ Tia Mowry at Home ]. I'm just enjoying life, and when I want to drop the pounds, I will, but right now I'm happy with who I am."
Is anyone else giving her a standing ovation? If not, you should be. It's inspiring to see how much she loves herself for the way she is and how she won't let anyone tell her otherwise. Some might see beauty as physical appearance, but true beauty is in the words spoken by Mowry.
She went onto to open up about body shaming and how what many consider "perfect" needs to be redefined. Mowry said, "But it is a form of body shaming, I will say that, and it's pretty unfortunate... We live in a society that is so obsessed with being perfect... why can't we just be us?"
We need to be more supportive with body images, especially with women, showing that all sizes are beautiful. And I'm talking about in magazines, advertisement in regard to what's sexy and what's not sexy. We all need to be a little more supportive of each other. I think if we start there, we'll see a difference.
Here's hoping Mowry's right and that everyone starts accepting themselves and others, no matter how society defines beauty and perfection.
