As you know, I am ALLLL about body positivity; which means I stalk body positive articles like its my job (why isn't it my job WHYYYY). But then after reading an article I do the one thing body positive people should NEVER do;
I read the comments.
And let me tell you, I just get disgusted with the WORLD. Most negative comments always try to bring up that body positive activists are trying to spread their unhealthy lifestyles and their just "too lazy to be normal pretty."
Please, do me a favor and shut the fuck up, because you have no idea what you are talking about.

New Flash- HEALTH AND BODY SIZE DOES NOT ALWAYS GO HAND IN HAND!

Yes, of course, I am not naive, if you do not eat healthy or exercise you more then likely will be bigger but that isn't always the case and you certainly can not tell someones fucking life choices based on a picture of them!
Some people are bigger. Beautiful women like Tess Holliday are bigger, yet she works out 4 times a week with a personal trainer. She just is BIGGER.
Then there are some people like Nela Zisser who is a standard model (very small) who consumes over 10,000 calories regularly for eating challenges. But does anyone worry about her cholesterol?

No, because she isn't fat.

But that isn't even the biggest issue. People aren't just relating body size to health, they are basing someones beauty, their self esteem, their confidence, on a faux idea of a total strangers"health". And not only that, but people seem to believe that they have the RIGHT to comment on someones personal health if they are anything bigger then a size 6!! What the fuck.
Some people are happy to be bigger, some people love that they have a body big enough to fit their fantastic personality. Some people just don't feel the need to take up less space to make someone else happier. And if that person is happy, you have no fucking right to decide they are not healthy enough to be beautiful, to be happy, to love themselves.
Health does not determine beauty, so stop trying to bring the bad bitches down. They don't have time for you.

omg I say this all the time... I hate reading comments on body positive postings... Most people dont want to be obese or overweight (if you do, we'll that's cool too), but everyone, EVERYONE deserves to feel beautiful in the body they have.

for real. I love myself just the way I am. But I am going to make some healthier choices but not because of the way I look I just want to be healthier. I don't need anyone to tell me I unhealthy, ugly, pretty, or not their type of whiskey or tea. because I loved me the way I am and if you can't love me for being me you can get out of my life even if you are family.

@VeronicaArtino @LizArnone Honestly....the sooner people realize that figures and change over time for many reasons, the better. The idea that someone beauty, value or health is not parcelled up in the shape of their body, the sooner the world will be a better place.

your right with not all skinny people are healthy because there are "skinny fat people" (skinny people with the fat stored in them around organs other than visibly around body) there is no good thing about being larger than you should be, and using "im beautiful because im big" as an excuse is lying... we are trying to cut down on weight around the world and saying its ok to be large is fighting agaisnt it. Then there is the excuse "ive tried to lose weight it just doesn't work" well large companies do see obesity as a problem and theyre more than likely to sell you their product and business and your more than happy to buy it just saying it didnt help you last year that slim quick wont help you this year try something else, look up the science of getting fat for yourself and make your own diet off of what you find
