Apparently, Complex, and Doctor: why l support body positivity (featuring Purple Bikini Girl fro my Bikini Body lustration) Wonderful series by @asurelle Β· There's a lot of confusion around what "body positivity" or "fat positivity" means and represents. It doesn't mean "everyone should eat unhealthy food and never exercise." It means "hey, you should love yourself and your body, and if you want to alter your lifestyle to change how you look, that's cool (and if not that's also cool!) but you shouldn't hate yourself in the meantime." This is not a complex concept, but the idea of a person not hating themselves when they have fat (gasp!!) is apparently a very horrifying concept for some people. Body positivity is all about loving yourself and taking care of your body. It's not your place to judge other people's lifestyles or assume that the amount of fat they have means they're lazy - unhealthy - etc. You can be skinny and have an eating disorder, you can be skinny and just have a great metabolism but be eating fast food every meal. You cannot make assumptions about a person's health from their weight. And even if you could, unless you're their doctor, then it's none of your business. When a person is saying they love their body and you think they're overweight, you're saying that they need to HATE their body until they lose 20 pounds. That is the kind of thinking ("I hate myself") that leads to eating disorders, overexercising, obsession with appearance, mental health problems, and more. It's so unsolicited and inappropriate to look at someone's weight and make all these assumptions about their lifestyle and tell them they should hate themselves. It is possible to love your body but also want to eat healthier! Or love your body but want to lose weight - bulk up - etc. Fat people are shamed so much for just living their lives, when really everyone just needs to focus on themselves and move on. Don't pretend you're concerned about healthy food when you judge fat people who eat at McDonald's but not skinny people. Don't act like you care about fitness when youre only demanding that *some* people must exercise and work out.
