what is it?
body positive - accepting your body as it is and attempting to make everyone else feel comfortable in their own skin as well
why it shouldn't be shamed
it takes a lot of people a long time to actually love themselves. so when they're finally body positive you shouldn't shame them because you don't know how hard it was for them to overcome that feeling of self hate. so by saying being body positive is being a "hoe" or "cocky" you can be sending someone who finally loves themselves back to phase 1, and back to that self hate stage. so before you try to slut shame that girl/boy for posting a revealing pic, think about the outcome you might have on their self confidence. let them do what they want it's not affecting you at all.
how to be body posi
becoming body positive is a process. we as people, have to learn how to love ourselves. we have to stop comparing ourselves to other people and realize that we can only be us. we can't let other people dictate the type of people that we want to be. if you're not happy with you body, work hard and change it. if your not happy with the state of your mind, research hard, gain knowledge, get educated. if your mentally ill, think positive and you slay with that mental illness. never let anything or anyone get in the way of you being body positive. love yourself.
by the way, the phrase "if you don't love yourselves how do you expect others to?" is total bs, let other people love you while you're finding yourself.
