Scientologists and ex-Scientologists juvenile practice of humiliating targeted individuals with critical comments about their body shape or size

Body shaming or expressing mockery about a person’s body shape or size is often used by FreeZone Scientologists and Ex-Scientologists to make less of a person they dislike. Unfortunately this is not an unique tactic by making less of others to attempt to gain popularity or business. On many occasions it would fire back.

Body shaming was what one man tried to do to Cassie Young, a newly engaged radio host in Atlanta. Young was celebrating her bride-to-be status on social media when a trainer reached out to her on Twitter, offering his services “to get you in shape for your wedding.”

When Young turned him down, replying that she’s “in shape,” he was undeterred, and continued to send her body shaming messages.

“I know you want to look your best on your wedding day,” he wrote. “If you don’t hire me hire someone. Those pictures lasts[sp] centuries.”

But Young remained cool, kindly explaining why she’s happy with her body.

“I know it’s probably hard for you to understand this, but it’s taken me a long time to love my body. I’m constantly shamed or reminded that I’m heavy and I should be embarrassed — or people are embarrassed for me — or just straight up rude, calling me ‘disgusting.’ I’ve battled past all that and like how I look,” she responded.

“I’ve worked really hard at accepting my self-worth and disassociating the idea that my weight is a direct correlation to my value as a person or how much people will like me. And I found someone who loves me no holds barred — just the way I am, thus proving that true.”

The trainer refused to give in, however, continuing to say, “you can’t lie to yourself,” and explaining that he understands because he used to be heavier. Young responded that he is “perpetuating the problem,” of basing your self-worth on your appearance.
