We all know that nasty comments about another person’s body are inappropriate and extremely hurtful. And yet it happens over and over again. Due to a clearly defined beauty ideal, many people find it difficult to be satisfied with their body, especially when sayings are dropped in the environment.

Exercising regularly has many benefits and also keeps your figure in shape. This reader, who prefers to remain anonymous, has also taken it very seriously. And in this very place where you can work on your health, he became a victim of body shame. “In the dressing room, as I was about to take a shower, I heard two other men making fun of me. ‘Look at that huge butt!’ they were saying.” After that, he did not dare to go to the gym for a long time.
