What's Body Positivity?

What's Body Positivity? 

Body Positivity or#Bopo is a popular expression and movement that aims to help people accept and celebrate bodies of all shapes, sizes, skin color, capability, and gender. 


Where did it start? 

“ Body positivity started after being used as an expression in the 1990 s, ” says the Tigress Obsborn, Chair of the National Association to the Advance Fat Acceptance( NAAFA). In 1996, an association called The Body Positive was innovated by an author who suffered with an eating complaint in her teens and a psychotherapist who specialized in treating eating diseases. 

Black women and femmes, fat people, and impaired people who were erecting community spaces and social media juggernauts around body positivity upping marginalized bodies and creating media that featured marginalized bodies, ” says Osborn. 

Body Positivity and its history in the Fat Liberation and the Fat Acceptance. 

“ The fat liberation movement of the 1960’s is the one of the grand elders for the ‘ body positivity, ’ movement, ” says the Osborn. “ And so are the any of the folks who were pushed to the edges of the mainstream of the beauty standard. But a lot of the language does come from effects fat freeing did in ‘ 70s, and ‘ 80s, especially fat sexists, ” says Osborn. 

The National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance( NAAFA) was innovated in 1969 “ devoted to guarding the rights and perfecting the quality of life for fat people. ” “ For the first time an association exists to make life better for fat people without them having to change their bodies, ” says Osborn. And from there grew the Fat Underground, a more radical offshoot that published the seminal of “ Fat Liberation Manifesto, ” which demanded the ‘ equal rights for the fat people in all the areas of the life; ’ stressed the intersectionality of fat emancipation with other tyrannized groups; called to end fat demarcation in the plant; and called out the diet and health diligence, amongst other effects.
