Body Positivity vs. Body Neutrality

article image placeholderUploaded by @chlomonsta
Well, Chloe and I were just talking about this. We were scrolling through Instagram, and we decided we wanted to just quickly make a swell because we were saying that there's a lot of people going around trying to say that body positivity is the way that we need to go. But everyone who's saying that body positivity is this whole great new thing are all showing themselves in very unrealistic ways, and they're not showing off their bodies in a way that actually depicts their flaws and stuff like that

Voice forward

They see our bodies in the real world. But there's something about letting it all go and not having the selfawareness that triggers loathing and triggers all the other things. I wish we lived in a world that really had more voice forward first, and then the body comes later, because then you've already fallen in love with that person. You've already connected with the meaning of who they are

@DBPardes

It's kind of the same thing where people make assumptions about you or make thoughts about how you look based on their preconceived notions and such. But then on Swell, you're really able to put, like, your personality and your views and what you think first. And so I feel like that's just like a really unique and special opportunity for people who are on this app. I especially have really enjoyed that kind of aspect to it. Anyway. Thank you so much for sharing this

Hey, just wanted to hop on here and say thank you for having me. This is such an important topic, and I'm really glad that we got to talk about this because we were genuinely just having this conversation. And then we're like, why don't we just record this and bring this out for the world to hear? So I hope you all hear this and find some inspiration from it. Maybe. I don't know, but I really enjoyed speaking with you, Chloe
