Anti-Body Shaming Protest in SL

A first for Virtually Sheree is a cover for an inworld protest against a store owner for body shaming where up to twenty avatars voicing their dissent against Grace Olivieri (grey.olivieri), owner of ‘Back to Grace’ for her instore messages and on her profile page against people considered to be “fat”. Also owner of ‘Lali’s Shiny Nylon’.

I traveled to Back to Grace so I could see for myself these messages and the rally happening in the store as I write this article.

When we are living in a time where body shaming has never been so rampant in media and fashion industries, and eating disorders among youth continues to increase, this peaceful rally is a heart warming political action to let every store owner in Second Life know that this behaviour will not be tolerated.
