Una instagrammer deforma su cuerpo para hablar de Cyberbullying

La bloguera británica Chessie King utilizó Photoshop para cambiar su imagen y complacer a quienes la atacan con comentarios negativos en las redes.

La joven nos da una gran lección

La joven que cuenta con más de 339 mil seguidores en Instagram se hartó de recibir comentarios negativos sobre su cuerpo y optó por modificarlo con PhotoShop.

El pasado 11 de abril, colgó un video en la popular red, que dejó a muchos sorprendidos porque lucía asombrosamente distinta y extraña.

Con ayuda del programa de edición logró aumentar sus ojos y labios, disminuyó su cintura, sus senos se hicieron muy prominentes , acompañados de una cintura minúscula y unas muy delgadas piernas.

Is Instagram a big reason for depression & mental health problems in young people? The stats say it all but what do YOU think? 🧠 When I was growing up, I only had the ‘perfect’ girls in magazines to look at & even that was an unhealthy comparison. I hate to think what young teenagers are now comparing themselves to; distorted, filtered, photoshopped versions of reality. There has always been a pressure to look good, but what’s scary is that Instagram is accessible all day everyday without any sort of time cap on it or restriction on what you can see apart from the choice of who you’re following. It upsets me so much to think how much this can effect young people’s mental health. Even the most educated still don’t know how easy it is to use photoshop or editing apps. I share so many of these posts but I just want to help as many people as I can find that true friendship with their bodies. – I’ve always been conscious of the back of my legs & refused to wear shorts for most of my teenage years. I thought I was the only one who had a ‘second bum’ 💁🏼‍♀️ I see girls beeeehinds on here looking smooooth as a peach which I’m sure they’ve worked hard for but I find it super unrealistic for me personally. The more I’ve shared on here about body confidence (or lack of) the more I realise I’m not alone & the more normal it becomes to look like the right in shorts. – I was speaking to someone about this earlier last week & they said their 12 year old cousin was posting photos on Instagram of her in a bikini & the caption was ‘rate me out of 10’ then another post of her in her underwear, if I get more than 50 likes I’ll send you a DM *winky face*. Instagram can be an amazing place but it can also be very dangerous. – Do you think there should be something on a post, a disclaimer to say the image has been edited/photoshopped? What are your thoughts on protecting young teenagers & preventing them from mental health problems connected with social media? ❤️🧡💛

La mujer terminó pareciendo toda una extraterrestre, pero el mensaje está muy claro, su imagen es el resultado de “Corregir” todas las imperfecciones que señalan algunos seguidores.

THIS IS ME. THIS IS MY BODY 🙋🏼‍♀️ No flattering angles, no flattering lighting, just me & my body feeling on top of the 🌍. We all have days where we feel super duper good but we don’t share them enough. I want YOU to feel confident enough to dance around in your underwear & embrace any wobble you have! A few years ago I would never have posted this, all I cared about back then was being the leanest I could, going to the gym as many times as I could a week & counting every calorie I ate 🍴 Even at my smallest, when I was training the most & eating the least, I just wanted to cover up my body because it wasn’t my idea of ‘perfect’ 💁🏼‍♀️ Now my priority is to be happy & comfortable in my own skin, & today I appreciate my body & what it does for me. We were not made to be Barbie dolls who LOOK insanely good 24/7, we were made to be HUMAN & we should all be allowed to FEEL insanely good 24/7. Come at me keyboard warriors, you can say what you want but nothing will knock me down 💃🏼👊🏼

“Esta soy yo y este es mi cuerpo. Sin ángulos ni iluminación favorecedores. Solo mi cuerpo y yo sintiéndonos en la cima del mundo. Hace algunos años, jamás hubiera publicado algo así. Solo me preocupaba estar lo más esbelta posible, yendo al gimnasio tantas veces como pudiera y contando cada caloría que comía”, comenta King en la publicación original.

En el resultado final, King explica:

“Si cambiáramos nuestro cuerpo por cada troll, si escucháramos a cada abusón cibernético, seríamos monstruos. Tanto si tienes 23 seguidores como si son 3 millones, NADIE tiene que lidiar con el odio diario en internet”.

El video ya supera las 250 mil visitas.

Chessie ha luchado en el pasado con problemas de alimentación y comenta que cada día recibe comentarios negativos por mostrarse con curvas en las redes.

Food is not scary, food is not the enemy, food is fuel, food is delicious, food is there to be ENJOYED ❤️🧡💛 – Left: 5 years ago. Scared of food, an unhealthy weight for my height (nearly 6ft) – Right: Found a love & very healthy relationship with food 💃🏼 I posted this last May but after so many messages after the recent post where I opened up to questions, I really hope it will help a few of you if you need it 🌈 Educating myself about exercise over the past few years has given me a whole new relationship with food. It’s now my bestfriend NOT the enemy 💛🍽 I used to get into bed proud of myself if I'd missed dinner, excited to wake up the next morning with a flat tummy. I forced myself to do endless amounts of cardio with absolutely no fuel & constantly felt light headed with no energy. I congratulated myself if I felt hungry & celebrated my tummy rumbling. I slowly started introducing foods that scared me, just a little bit at a time so it wasn’t too overwhelming, I started experimenting with different tastes 🍴 I now eat what I want when I want, with the thorough understanding (after 5 years of learning about my body) what food I need to support my active lifestyle. Without the food, I wouldn't be able to do the workouts I do, I would be able to work as hard as I do 🏋🏼 Even just sitting down to do work, I feel so much more productive when I’ve had a good nutritious meal. I don't count macros, I don't cut ANYTHING out of my diet (except black pepper & goats cheese! 🤢) I just eat healthy whole foods & nourish my body. I don't ever feel that guilt I used to live with every time I took a bite of even just an apple. Girls, if I could go back to the left photo, I would tell myself how amazing food really is. How important it is to understand what you're putting in your body & how much you need. I am not a nutritionist but I know what works for me & I’m still constantly learning 🙋🏼‍♀️ Anyone reading this who needs that little bit of bravery 🦁 YOU’VE GOT THIS & if you feel like you haven’t, there’s always support, you are NOT alone. 🍊🍋🍌🍿🍉🍓🍍🍦🥝🥕🥑
