Do you believe photos of a fit woman post pregnancy is "fat shaming" or inspiring?
Just recently Amy Pell from the U.K. posed showing off her abs with her young daughter next to her and not long ago Maria Kang also posted a picture of herself with her three young children. In both instances these women were accused of "fat shaming" because they believe having had children is "no excuse" for letting their body go. Both women state their intention is to "inspire". Does seeing someone fit motivate you or depress you? Should you really care about how someone else looks? Are some women concerned about their husband's post pregnancy expectations?
It's inspiring because it shows it can be done. Whether you can achieve that look doesn't matter...it's just a possibility. That's how you should look at it.
I tend to agree with you. Just knowing something is "possible" is an inspiration! If someone came from a very poor background with little formal education and became rich. I wouldn't say they were "poor shaming" those who are less fortunate.
I don't think posting the photos is fat shaming at all. However, comments about having a baby being no excuse for letting your body go is not very generous, now is it? We should be proud of our accomplishments but comparing ourselves to others is simply seeking validation by pointing out the flaws anf weaknesses of others.
It really comes down to how an individual views it I suppose. It is common for people to say they want something but turn around and offer an excuse. For someone to say I was in the same boat as you and I made it offers proof that it's possible.
Oh please, don't get me start me on this question. I have personal beliefs that may sound old fashioned in today's world but if a woman goes and ruins her beautiful female form with "wash board abs" "bulging biceps" and the like, to me this is ugly. I very rarely use that word but ugly it is to me. The soft smooth curves of the female form are God's sculpting at its best, why ruin it? I am not saying that women should not exercise, but kee the female form on the female. Exercise is one thing, excess is another. One other thing, excessive exercise produces" testosterone, a hormone that plays a key role in the development of male reproductive tissues such as the testis and prostate as well as promoting secondary sexual characteristics", this can make it harder, if not impossible, for a woman to have a baby, should she want this, due to the reduction of her natural female estrogen hormone. A pregnant woman that excessively works out may find it hard or impossible to breast feed due to her higher than normal levels of testosterone. The male and female bodies were built as they are for a reason and to mess them up with to much of anything should not. As I said before, exercise and excessive exercise are two different ball parks.
I too have no interest in seeing a woman whose body looks like a dude. However I wouldn't say as some others have said that these women are "fat shaming" women because they dropped their pregnancy weight to being where they were pre-pregnacy
For once we agree. Shaming someone is not to be done. It would not even be healthy for a woman to keep her pregnancy weight would it? We agree, the dude look no, the fat retention also a no. There has to be a happy middle ground, right?
billys1, We agree on something! Maybe we should run out and buy some lottery tickets! This may never happen again!

What's with the shaming of people who are choosing to vote 3rd party?Both main parties are running on "fear of the other" and it's bringing out the worst behavior in some people. I've seen many Trump and Hillary supporters both shame those who are voting third party, tell them to...
