We use talk about being body positive a lot here at Scarleteen, and you see the term come up in lots of other spaces as well. While body positivity is becoming more widely known as a concept, it's important to acknowledge that it looks and feels a little different for each person. For example, I feel like a lot of body positivity misses the experiences of disabled folks, trans folks, or people who still struggle to even like their body, let alone love it.
To me, being body positive means understanding that there is no one, best way to have a body, and that no body is inherently more valuable than another. And, it means understanding that not everyone will look at their body and go, "heck yes, I love all of this!" and just because they aren't doing that doesn't mean they're somehow failing at body positivity. I think these three pieces illustrate different ways of talking about bodies that are all part of the bigger conversation around body positivity:
