I fear gaining weight. I fear the judgement, the looks when I'm eating, the comments about my body. You could say that's an irrational fear but I know I'm lucky that I have a small frame and I'm still a small size in comparison to a lot of people in the bopo/fat acceptance community.
I don't get called a whale, get told I'm promoting obesity, get messages that I'm morbidly obese and should take care of my health. The truth is we have no idea what someone else's story is from the outside. We have NO idea about a fat persons health, nor do I feel it's respectful to comment on it.
Body positivity for me is about respect. I am learning to respect all bodies and not put my ideas of health onto others. Some people cannot afford my standard of health.
Some people have chronic health conditions that I have no idea about, so how can I push my idea of 'health' without also considering their mental health? - 59 minutes ago
