Apparently, Complex, and Doctor: why l support body positivity (featuring Purple Bikini Girl fro my Bikini Body lustration) Wonderful series by @asurelle · 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.

Anaconda, Another One, and Beautiful: there's so much diversity in this new kids movie "Storks". this makes me so happy 🌌To Louise - Louise, you are a beautiful and amaZING person. You are always there for me if I need to rant and you are one of the most selfless and generous and caring people I know (even though you get a bit crazy around fire and you know... arson). You give the most heartfelt hugs and I never ever dislike being around you because of your general fantastic aura of happiness and calmness. Gee, I can't remember when I first met you! It's like I've always had you around as a friend. I know you're facing a few troubles with body positivity and family issues at the moment so I really hope that they both clear up very soon. And you're always free to talk to me whenever you want about anything. I love you loadssss 🌵🍉 To Jake and Sharmi - two of my favourite internet friends in the whole world!!! You guys never ever fail to make me smile. You're both kind and brilliant people, and I always look forward to replying to your messages and speaking to you. I really hope to see you soon - hopefully in August although I understand that there are a few complications standing in the way and I don't mean to intrude or anything - because you two are just so fabulously amazing!! I am so happy to call you guys my friends :,) I love you two so muchhhhh 🌹To Josh - I've already written an enormous rant to you tonight so I won't bother you with another one - at least not one which took a few minutes to send. You are a great human being, and your actions are made with amazing intentions. I know you don't feel 100% happy with yourself and I'm sorry that I can't show you the brilliant person I see you as, but I am immensely proud that I can call you my friend and I get to talk to you practically daily. You're kind and smart and funny and an all-round incredible guy. I reeeeaaaally want to go and see you but I know that'd most likely not happen for a very long while :( I love you to the moon -Chance 🦋
