I’ve seen some pretty problematic stuff floating around my dash lately concerning body acceptance and everything that goes along with it.
It’s okay to do what you feel is best for your body, whether that means sitting on the couch all day or running a marathon every six months. It isn’t my place to judge what you do with something that belongs to you and no one else.
It’s not okay to shame someone for a choice they make that involves their body. Okay? It’s really that simple. Like, unless you’re living in that body with them, it isn’t your concern.
People will raise questions about eating disorders and obesity and health, but again, unless it’s your body or you’re looking for help, it’s no one else’s business or right to shame you.
So you can eat well or well enough or you can eat like my brother does: five sodas a day, and nothing but carbs, because he’s a picky eater and most things offend him. You can go to the gym, you can walk to the get the mail, you can sit on your ass or whatever, because it’s what makes you comfortable.
I’m seriously so tired of seeing these remarks. I don’t personally think you can be body positive, while shaming the shit out of other people for their body choices. It doesn’t work that way. What it means, is that you’re willing to make another person feel bad, if it makes your body look better. And that’s the end of it.
