Is Pushing Body Positivity a Form of Abuse?

that most do not celebrate obesity.

I mentioned artists like Lizzo, and posted an activist model, in a growing movement of people (more importantly, prominent influencers) who are, wait for it..celebrating obesity. 

If you're good in your skin, this isn't what am eluding to.

But to tell me you being 400lbs is healthy, and gaslighting medical specialists to comply, and gaslighting if needed.

Lizzo isn't celebrating being good in your skin. If she was, she wouldn't try to gaslight "haters" about her weight having nothing to do with food.

If you're pushing a, "am big and beautiful" message, this is perfectly respectable. Great, even.

I am talking on those who now try to change actual medical advice, to spare the feelings of others.

Morbid obesity isn't healthy. Period. Okay, good for those who have no health issues. 

Thats like saying you drive twice the speed limit but have never been in a  accident. This doesn't justify the behavior.

If am a prominent voice, I wouldn't promote unprotected sex as perfectly safe. This would be crazy. Irresponsible. 

But a non physician stating morbid obesity is perfectly healthy, is progress.

Maybe she is just a natural fattie, descended from those Venus-like figures they found in caves.

These ancient sculptures, with their large breasts, stomaches, thighs, and backsides, reflected the desirability of body fat for women during the late Stone Age. The worn surfaces of many Venuses suggest they might have been passed down as “ideological tools” that “conveyed ideals in body size for young women,” the researchers wrote.

Or somebody was, you know... having fun using them for something personal...

They also more than likely didn't have the clothing technology that we had now.

Back then, it was likely all functional.

IE Wide hips meant child bearing. Heavy fat, meant she stayed warm in the colder months.

They also lived a lifestyle that was insanely active. Her being that fat, likely as a result didn't cause serious health problems. 

It does, today.
