Criticism of the body positivity movement

  • Body positivity implies that people should do whatever they think to feel positive about how they look. The idealization of thinness can contribute to people engaging in actions such as extreme diets under the guise of feeling "body positive."
  • Body positivity can be non-inclusive. Images of body positivity messages often exclude, for example, people of color or those who are disabled.
  • The body positivity movement emphasizes the body's appearance as an important element of a person's self-perception while neglecting other more important aspects.
