Hi! My name is Siddhi Kabadi and I am currently a sophomore living in the Bay Area. Despite the fact that the Bay Area is one of the most diverse, welcoming and economically strong communities, you would be astounded by the amount of sexism and judgement that occurs. Many of us know what acne is and what it looks like, but what they do not know is how it can mentally, emotionally, and physically drain someone and bring them down. We all know the worst thing to say to someone dealing with acne, is to ask them about it or point it out. But now, it gets worse through social media. People that you may or may not know, can easily bully you by commenting rude things on posts or create a hate account for you. Social media is a very large platform, and because of this people can harass and torment you in many different ways.
I myself have struggled with acne all my life, and I still continue to so I understand how hard it is to walk around and have people look at you weirdly or judge you for what your face looks like. Acne is a part of life and everyone gets it at some point, and instead of embracing it and not judging people for having it why do we always result to bullying? People that you don’t even know can disrupt your self esteem by giving hate comments or by bullying you through the internet. We live in a society where the way you look defines you. Instead of changing this, we keep adding to this problem by continuing to judge people. Judging, bullying and harassing has become a trend in our current society and it needs to change.
Instead of caring so much about the physical traits about people, we need to move past it and stop judging people. Only will we stop judging people will society be able to progress and evolve.
