NEVER being one for rules; ALWAYS questioning apparent 'truths' - it's been quite the journey navigating size acceptance and weight neutrality.
As an individual: I've felt welcomed from one group and not by another; whilst learning my own acceptance - I was outright rejected from a group because I didn't 100% align with group views.
Nutriri as a movement: has been championed by many yet doubted by some; been an ally to communities yet seen as a competitor by others.
We can only ever be a collection of INDIVIDUAL understandings and behaviours - seeking to learn rather than judge - continuing to be a helpful and safe space. Creating 'us and them' environments isn't for us.
Body Positivity or Neutrality?
"As opposed to body positivity, body neutrality aims to encourage humans to accept their body how they are, whether or not they love the way it is. Simply saying “just love your flaws” isn’t realistic; as imperfect people, it’s near impossible to truly love the things that society tells us to hate. Body neutrality tells people that it doesn’t matter whether or not they love the body they’ve been given: what’s important is that they value their body just as much as anyone else." read more...
