Fat-shaming at Work
Fat-shaming at work – snide looks or comments about what women eat on the job – is alive and well, according to the New York Post.
Monitoring and commenting — directly or indirectly — about what colleagues eat during the workday reminds us of a form of bullying in which you’re either the bully, the bullied or the bystander. Only here, when dealing with eating habits, you’re either the shamer, the shamed or the spectator. It’s just one more unwanted worry at work for people who have enough on their plates.
Does this kind of Mean Girls stuff happen in your workplace and, if so, where do you fall?
