fatshionprincess asked: ok so recently i was confronted by a family member that said i was being hypocritical as a body postitve person because i did not support people that have anorexia. they said that if i say "all bodies are good bodies" then that should apply to them too. i was stumped as what to say. PLEASE HALP.


Answer:

mossbelly:

A critical difference I’ve noticed between the body acceptance community and the anorexia/thinspo community is that one is based on counteracting the hate it gets from society, whereas the other is creating self-hate and loathing in a way that is unhealthy both physically and mentally. Thinspo followers are constructing their body issues internally, telling themselves they are ugly (AND THEY ARE SUPPORTED IN DOING SO BECAUSE IT WILL MOTIVATE THEM TO BE THINNER WHICH IS GOOD), whereas fat people have their body issues shaped by the voices of people around them, and have to look a lot harder for love and support of their bodies. So in that way I feel like it partially an issue of the community, and the way someone’s brain would have to operate in order to be included in that community (ie: in an emotionally/mentally/physically unstable way). Also anorexia is a disease based largely upon body dysmorphia, and being fat ain’t no disease.

Additionally, I kind of think it is bullshit to have to coddle people who are striving/starving to be thin because they already have a whole accessible community, fashion/magazine/television industry, and general public behind them telling them that thin=good and fat=bad. 

So yes, all bodies are inherently good, but if you’re not enjoying that body then it is not good, especially if you’re letting it hold you back. This is a huge difference in the body acceptance/thinspo community. People who follow the dogma of thinspo believe they must earn joy, love, good clothes, beauty, freedom, etc through becoming as thin as possible, whereas in the body acceptance community seems to focus on enhancing the feelings of worth, dignity, beauty, and love that everyone should be allowed to feel as a human being, no matter what size. 

TL;DR - One community is based on self-hate, the other is based on self-love.

Hope this helped.

Also, the body posi/fat posi community is about embracing you body as good, however it is, and the anorexia/thinspo community is about changing your body at any cost. So, it’s not really operating within the dogma of ‘all bodies are good bodies’ because its basis for existence is that your body is wrong and must be fixed.
