This week’s edition of The Irish News features a series of stories about women’s bodies, including stories about how the new generation of women has taken to the Internet and shared their experiences of hard bodies.
First up is a woman who had a body that was not quite as perfect as her husband’s but was still hard enough to be a success in the dating game.
The woman, a 35-year-old English woman from Glasgow, was married for six years before she fell in love with a 28-year old British man.
She said: I was happy with the size of my body.
I had curves, which I never really liked.
I did feel fat, but I did not feel bad about it.
She was not alone in feeling uncomfortable about her body.
“I think women are more sensitive to their bodies now,” said Claire Dolan, professor of communication at Glasgow University.
“It’s a very big thing for women to say to each other.”
Dolan also said that the way people speak about their bodies online has changed, with many people describing their bodies as “too small” or “too big”.
This new attitude towards their bodies also leads to a different type of woman.
Dolan said: There is a huge amount of fear that people have about how they look online.
We can get into all kinds of situations, but people’s attitudes are changing.
I think people are more conscious about what they are wearing, how they walk around, how their bodies are looking, and what they’re doing with their bodies.
I can’t imagine how hard it must be for someone who’s a professional model.
Claire Dohan is professor of communications at Glasgow’s School of Communication and Journalism.
