Confidence in the sphere of body sizes and shapes is most times influenced by social media. The Kardashians especially Kim have been the face of body perfection in the media industry.
For the longest time, Kim Kardashian heralds whatever trend the female masses consuming media beauty/fashion information follow. A family so meticulous about the image they present to the population would not allow a certain perspective they do not want to push be forefront.
The slim-thick era seems to have come to an end for Kim Kadarshian. This era had females rushing under the knife trying to look a certain way that was prior relegated to black females considered overweight when compared to the Asian doll standard of beauty.
This era had Kim as its fore icon, BBL became the status quo for those who could afford it. Insecurity became the mind’s playfield for those who couldn’t afford it.
For someone certain about the position she holds in determining the trajectory of masses when it comes to attractiveness and confidence in body sizes, she has been releasing a lot of pictures that feature her flaunting a body size that is barely sized XS.
Her embrace of an extreme Caucasian look would not remain passive. This is about to awaken herd behaviour and stir the masses towards an unhealthy fanatism of size. She once outed the outrageous means she took to prepare for her fitting into Marilyn Monroe’s dress.
With the 21st-century obsession with psychology, are psychotherapists about to be flooded with anorexia nervosa patients? This question is necessary as Gen Z are not just information sensitive, they are easy to fall into emotional and mental crises when unsure of their physical identity.
As the image the Kardashians are selling cannot be controlled, it is advisable that positivity on body sizes should be disseminated on social media platforms. Subtle cries for help when it comes to body insecurities should not be ignored and body shamming based on subjective idea of perfection should be fettered.
