Body neutrality asserts your inherent right to exist no matter the shape, size or composition of your body.
There is a huge problem in modern society — body shaming. It does nothing to heal the traumas of our bodies and if anything, exacerbates and contributes to further disease and despair.
“One thing we can do is take it seriously, recognize that our bodies are ourselves in a visual and virtual culture, and we struggle with the increasing demands of beauty. If we take the demands seriously, it is easy to see why body shaming is serious. When you shame bodies you shame people. Body-shaming — whether fat shaming, a nasty comment about hair color or a body part — can make you ashamed, can stay with you, and make you insecure.”–Heather Widdows Ph.D.
