Body Positivity is Not A Comfy Waiting Room

BODY POSITIVITY IS NOT A WAITING ROOM THAT’LL KEEP YOU COMFORTABLE UNTIL YOU GET THIN.

I have curated my newsfeed to be full of awesome, positive content – easily done once you start clearing out the trash. Which is why it is pissing me off to see my beautiful body positive posts slowly but perceptibly replaced by body shamers… But the worst thing is that they don’t even know they’re doing it.

The Restaurant That Burns Calories

When I go to a restaurant, it’s usually because; a) I can’t be arsed to cook, b) my partner can’t be arsed to cook and is offering to pay, or c) I want to eat a fuck tonne of lush food. I don’t normally expect French Fred, the maître D from “First Dates”, to tell me that I need to jog for 45mins because I ate a cheeseburger. But I just watched a TV show where this exact thing happened.

Today I watched the BBC 2 Horizon documentary “The Restaurant That Burns Off Calories” – and man, do I have some views to share with you!
