Así responde Internet a la peligrosa moda #a4waist (WELL DONE!)

Acaba de surgir una nueva y peligrosa moda para medir la delgadez a través de las redes sociales. Se trata de un reto que surge en China y que se ha convertido en viral tanto en Twitter como Instagram, pero con consecuencias muy negativas.

El desafío consiste en demostrar si estás más delgado que un folio del tamaño estándar A4 y subirlo a las redes sociales para que lo vea todo el mundo. Si te pasas de estas mínimas medidas, es que no estás en forma.

Esta moda bajo el hashtag  #A4waist ha conseguido muchas seguidoras que no se dan cuenta de los peligros que supone para ellas y para otras jóvenes que sigan su ejemplo:


I don’t know if you guys have heard of the #a4waist #a4waistchallenge but I heard about it today and wanted to give it a go. Apparently women have been holding 8.3″ sheets of A4 paper against their stomachs to show how small their waists are at less than 25″ if they fit inside a sheet of paper, now I never measure myself and I haven’t so much as stood on a weighing scales in years. Since having my two children my body has changed incredibly, my hips are far wider and I feel thicker and larger all over. When I look in the mirror I don’t see myself as slim or small in any way but more wide and softer around the edges and I constantly compare myself to the mental image of my prepregnancy body which I know is ridiculous because I became a mother almost 9yrs ago now! I decided to take this challenge as a way to measure my body size against my own eyes and the eyes of society and I wasn’t expecting what I found. My waist is almost the size of an A4 page and I was expecting it to be far wider for how I perceive my shape and size, but in putting it into perspective like this I can see that my body hang ups are in my mind l. Regardless of our size we should be happy in our own skin, beauty isn’t a number, weight or measurement it is a feeling and this just goes to show that we all need to cut ourselves a little slack with how we interpret our appearance ?????? #paper #paperchallenge #waist #trend #trending #waisttrainer #waisttraining #slim #skinny #body #bodyimage #size #weight #attraction #female #girl #woman #curves #thick #legs #shape #hourglass #bikini #beyou #beyourself #beautiful #beauty

Ante esta locura muchos otros usuarios de Internet no han tardado en reaccionar al reto con imágenes como las que te mostramos. En las que dejan claro que este challenge no tiene ningún sentido y que la belleza no se mide por un simple papel en blanco.
