Body Positivity Or Promoting Obesity?

Hi guys,

So there has been A LOT of talk about body image for the past couple years. Many have tried to promote body positivity, a memorable example would be the song “All About the Bass”by Megan Trainor. But on every post, article or video attempting to show even a morsel of body positivity, whether its encouraging plus size women to wear bikini’s or urging more brands to have bigger sizes  available, there is also a counter argument.
