Some Chubby Girl Was "Body Shamed" By Her Employer For Posting Her Modeling Pictures On The Company Instagram
Source- An Oklahoma woman said she quit her job after she was discriminated against by the owner of the store she worked for.
Sherene Marie Zarrabi worked at a boutique store in Stillwater called Dainty Hooligan. She said the owner, Jessica Issler, sent her an email about the photos she was posting on the store's Instagram account. Zarrabi said Issler went on the Instagram account and deleted all the photos of Zarrabi modeling the store's clothes.
The email reads: "Something I want to make sure you keep in mind: I want size small, the stereotypical 'model' type to model our clothes. Please use our pictures of our models if Stillwater store can't find someone who would be considered 'model material.' This is not to put anyone down but to communicate the expectations of presenting our brand. Don't take it personal, all I ask for is really good representation. In exchange for the freedom, I ask you to take down all pictures of anyone that doesn't fit the criteria."
Zarrabi posted the email on her Facebook page.
"I just want to start by saying this: I am fully comfortable with who I am and the way I look. I have recently been attacked and discriminated against by the owner of Dainty Hooligan," she wrote. "THIS is the reason young girls have body image issues. This is disgusting."
Zarrabi said she quit as soon as she read the email.
Sometimes people need to be reminded that the are better off staying in their lane. Some cashier at boutique clothing store needs to stick to ringing people up, and not throwing herself belly first into a modeling career. Here is what Sharene Marie Zarrabi clearly doesn't understand. She was body shamed. Not because she is fat. Okay, well maybe it has a little bit to do with her weight, but it has more to do with the fact that she tried to be a model. The entire modeling profession is based off body shaming. There's no super intricate vetting process when it comes to hiring a person for their looks. No one gives a fuck if they have they the personality for the job, because there is no personality required for the job. Some careers are based solely on superficiality, and trying on clothes with the intent of convincing other people to purchase said clothes is just one of those careers. Body shaming is an occupational hazard of trying to make money off your body. That's why those that don't have absolutely flawless bodies should never try to do it. Want to be a model? Be less fat. Want to be fat? Don't be a model. It's pretty simple. It's the same reason why a company would never hire my balding ass to promote their hair care products. This broad was hired to keep track of profits, not rack up the Instagram likes. Her employer would have never had to shame her disgusting body if she wasn't using it to step beyond the bounds of her job description. If this chick was comfortable with her body then she wouldn't have quit when it got shamed, because the type of person that should be modeling would already be used to that type of criticism.

It is because of people like you say things like "belly first" and "disgusting body " is why this is an issue in the first place. What gives you the right to say something that could ruin a girls self worth forever?
