I appreciate what this artist is trying to do, but a lot of her images focus on weight loss and I find them discouraging. I wish they could be body positive and not reinforce the stereotype that thin, lean bodies are the only healthy/strong/useful/desirable bodies.
Yep. I put the super triggering “body positive” fitspo art associated with this post under a link because it’s fucking horrid.
Girl toes the line between “body positivity”, pro-weight loss and fitspo crap on the daily, so people keep reblogging her body-positive-leaning shit and not realizing that a lot of the messaging she puts out into the tumblr community does much more harm than good. I’m so fucking tired of her shit showing up on my dash. I don’t know what her stance is or whether she’s acknowledging this shit because I try to avoid looking at her blog at all costs, but I understand she has a very large following of people and with that comes the responsibility to fucking comprehend why this shit isn’t cool.
