BBC promotes breast binding to teen girls

from The Christian Institute:

The BBC has come under fire for promoting the use of breast binders in a programme aimed at young people.

During the BBC Three programme ‘The Unshockable Dr Ronx’, Frankie, 17, reveals she wears a breast binder but that it is causing her medical issues.

Breast binders are worn by women to make them appear more masculine by compressing the chest in an attempt to hinder breast development.

Breathing difficulties

Frankie explained to Dr Ronx that she has difficulty breathing while wearing the binder, that her back has become hunched, and that her ribs sometimes pop out of place as she walks.

She said: “I can’t walk a lot, I can’t run a lot. I can’t do a lot of exercise. It compresses my chest so much that I just can’t breathe properly, and I can’t really leave the house without it.”
