What Body Image Positivity Actually Means

Everyone wants to be a part of something, everyone wants to feel important, valuable and loved. However, there are movements, which take it way too far. It has come to my attention that there’s something called ‘Body Positivity Movement’. It’s sounds ridiculous, I know.

What is body positivity?

I couldn’t find a better definition of this ‘movement’ than this, so body positivity means:

Accepting your body as it is and attempting to make everyone else feel comfortable in their own skin as well. [1]

Now the definition is fine and it actually seems to be a very rational movement. Everyone is different, some win the genetic lottery and are naturally beautiful, while others need to work a little bit harder. We generally have different nose shape, eye color, lip size, lip position and so on.

All those things occur naturally due to genetics and that’s what makes every one of us unique. Unless you’re an identical twin.

However, obese people, feminists for the most part, use this as a way to escape responsibility for eating themselves to death. Accepting your body, which you’ve been stuffing with burgers, french fries and coke for years, is not body positive. Body positive would be taking care of your body by nurturing it with healthy food and a good workout once in a while.

Body positivity is actually an excuse to keep your horrible eating habits and get away with it. Simply state that everyone hates fat people, that the supermarket they go to discriminates against them, because the door is unable to fit a vehicle sized person. Or something stupid like that. These people are generally very creative at making something ordinary very offensive to them.

This type of abuse and word twisting should not be tolerated, because it will get out of control really quickly.

The moment you accept your body as is…

Is the moment you completely give up on yourself. As a an overweight guy, the moment I could not see my dick in the shower, was the moment I realized I need to do something about it. Because I knew if I kept going like this, by the time I’d hit 40, I’d be a potential candidate for my 600 lb life TV series.

Losing weight is a mind game first, eating properly second and exercising third. There’s no magic to it, there are no ‘closely guarded’ secrets to it, there’s only your choice – be fat, or be healthy.

Obesity is already serious.

I don’t know what happened to society, really, I don’t. Back in the olden days, we had an average life expectancy of 30 years. [2] Medicine was not advanced at all, we had to actually hunt for our food, so we naturally died like flies.

However, today with all the advanced in technology, medicine, food availability and industrialization our life expectancy soared to 70 years on average. Yet, we consciously try to kill ourselves by eating junk, smoking, using drugs and doing stupid shit like promoting ‘body image positivity’, which is disastrous to our well-being.

And here’s the saddest part of it all. Children start to think that being obese is normal, because every one in their family is obese, which leads to this:

Type 2 diabetes in youth was almost unheard of only two decades ago. However, tracking the recent dramatic rise in childhood obesity, type 2 diabetes has become increasingly prevalent. Thus, there is an urgent need for high-quality clinical trials to increase in-depth knowledge about pathophysiology, optimal treatment, and prevention. [3]

There’s your food for thought.
