bOdY poSITiviTY Is FOr EVerYoNe
How was the body-positive movement highjacked? It’s almost unrecognizable. I’m not saying that everyone shouldn’t love the body their in. The body positive movement was born from the need to showcase bodies not readily excepted by the mainstream media.
Body positivity is a social movement rooted in the belief that all human beings should have a positive body image, while challenging the ways in which society presents and views the physical body. The movement advocates the acceptance of all bodies regardless of physical ability, size, gender, race, or appearance.
Missing The Goal
The goal of the movement is to address unrealistic beauty standards and to build the confidence of oneself and others..
If you have to literally fold yourself over to create a body roll, please leave yourself out of the body positivity conversation. My god. And I know I’ll get shit for this because ‘bOdY poSITiviTY Is FOr EVerYoNe’ … it wasn’t created for everyone.

bOdY poSITiviTY Means Diversity In Shapes
The Hourglass Body Shape rules the world. We get it. However, within the body positivity movement shapes need diversity. Well is kill brands to show pear, apple, or a few oval body shapes? Sidenote: As women, we also say we wanted to see women that look like us in campaigns and ads. This means when we see those kind of images come down your social media timeline take the time to like and comment.
