Cecily Tynan Weight Loss & Body Shaming
Tynan was featured on the cover of Real Woman magazine, and in the article that went with it, she talked about how she was body shamed and how she first fell in love with TV reporting as a teenager.
She also talked about her passion for running and what it really is like to forecast the weather. She has expressed her dissatisfaction with comments made about her appearance before, and not just now. Tynan turned to Facebook in January when someone termed her on-air outfit as “unprofessional.”
The comment read, “Eat a hoagie Cecily ur [sic] too skinny!!!!” and she tweeted a screenshot of it last October. She replied in-depth in her blog post, saying that she gets comments like these on a regular basis and that she’s “tired of them.”
Although “skinny shaming” is a common problem and, sure, it’s not any less hurtful than other sorts of shaming, we often associate body shaming with criticizing someone whose body is larger.
While Tynan is correct that body shaming is unreasonable, her experiences serve as a useful reminder that our society still has a long way to go in how it views and treats women’s bodies.
