    21 Body-Shaming Magazine Covers That Prove Women Just Can't Win

    Bullying disguised as a shiny, glossy, A4 size magazine.

    1. This cover that’s shaming a woman for eating.

    Can she live?? (But seriously).

    2. And this cover that's shaming women for having actual faces, not just a pile of makeup sitting on their shoulders.

    Famous Weekly / Via Facebook: famousmagazine

    HOW. DARE. THEY.

    3. This cover that for a moment seemed like it might be cutting women some slack...

    4. LOL just messing with you.

    Famous Weekly / Via Facebook: famousmagazine

    If by “cutting them some slack” you mean “deciding on what is and isn’t an acceptable bikini body,” then sure.

    5. Because your body is up for public consumption, betches.*

    Famous Weekly / Via Facebook: famousmagazine

    *It is not.

    6. Then there's this magazine cover that praised these women for slimming down...

    7. Only to shame other women a few months later for being too thin.

    Riiiight.

    8. This cover that straight up went and called these women's bodies "scary."

    NW Magazine / Via Facebook: NWmagazine

    What's "scary" is that an entire editorial team thought this was acceptable.

    9. This cover that was like, "You guys! Curves are in again!"

    NW Magazine / Via Facebook: NWmagazine

    10. And then they were like, "Ew, you guys! Curves are gross. Here's how to lose weight!"

    NW Magazine / Via Facebook: NWmagazine

    11. But then they were like, "Woah, guys! Now you're so thin it's scary!"

    NW Magazine / Via Facebook: NWmagazine

    Concern trolling is truly an art form.

    12. This cover that was worried women were were being bullied for their bodies.

    Star Magazine / Via Facebook: starmagazineuk

    13. While at the same time, bullying women for their bodies.

    Star Magazine / Via Facebook: starmagazineuk

    14. This magazine cover that seriously doesn't like it when women are anything but natural.

    NOW Magazine / Via Facebook: NowMag

    15. But they're not too keen on women being in their natural state, either.

    16. Then there's this cover that's fat-shaming a pregnant woman...

    In Touch / Via celebitchy.com

    17. Followed by thin-shaming a pregnant woman.

    In Touch / Via Facebook: InTouchWeekly

    Think that because they’re gossip magazines they don’t have any kind of social responsibility? Think again. They didn’t just body-shame a pregnant woman; they dangerously diagnosed her with an eating disorder and then slapped the label on the cover of a best-selling magazine.

    18. And this cover that insulted a woman for having the audacity to do what she chooses with her own face.

    US Weekly / Via usmagazine.com

    19. The NERVE of some women - living and breathing and wearing a swimsuit in public.

    NW Magazine / Via Facebook: NWmagazine

    How. Dare. They.

    20. We know what you’re thinking: “But they’re celebrities, it comes with the territory.”

    NW Magazine / Via Facebook: NWmagazine

    21. But being bullied for your body shouldn’t be part of your job description.

    NW Magazine / Via Facebook: NWmagazine

    And it shouldn’t be part of your life.
