14 People’s Thoughts on Why the Body Positive Movement Is More Focused on Weight Than Physical Deformities

Originally the body positivity movement was mostly for the anatomical differences not relating to weight: face deformities, amputees, scars, stretch marks etc. I think it’s much better because body “positivity” can feel so forced sometimes and ultimately is still very appearance based.
