We were taught that body positivty & body confidence were interchangeable only to now find that bopo is exclusively for marginalised bodies. And as a result of this there is a backlash on “incorrectly” using the term.
TW. Bariatric surgery is not a decision I’ve made lightly & I’ve made it known to all the counselors / dietitians / exercise instructors I’ve met so far that I’m happy in my own skin & I will always support the plus world. So why am I scared of the plus world shunning me?
I adore the BoPo community but what was a supportive celebration of choice power is turning into a contradictory place of negativity since the turn of 2019 for two just reasons.
