The body positivity movement came about because, for some reason, people love to objectify women's bodies.

But body positivity frequently comes under fire for "promoting unhealthy lifestyles," or some other judgmental garbage not based in facts or science or medicine.


So people were ready to jump all over Lizzo when Page Six posted a pic of her minding her own dang business in a red bikini.

Lizzo looks like she's having a great time in Brazil.

So of course, some folks NEEDED to try and ruin it for her.





Simply put, you cannot determine a person's health by their visible weight. In fact, depending on the person, genetics can have a 70%-80% impact on how quickly a person puts on and retains weight.

since Lizzo has the lung capacity and the stamina to do an entire concert and then bust out the flute, it seems like a pretty poor thing to get on her case about.

Of course, not everybody was a troll.

Several people rushed right to Lizzo's defense.





The body positivity movement is very clear that the goal is to "end the harmful consequences of negative body image: eating disorders, depression, anxiety, cutting, suicide, substance abuse, and relationship violence."

Therefore, those claiming to be concerned about Lizzo's "health" may actually be pushing her and others who digest that information to making vastly more unhealthy choices.





And when presented with a body shamer in December, Lizzo already had the perfect response ready.

"The only person who needs to do better is you."

Every family has a black sheep or every family in its entirety are black sheep.

What is a "black sheep" anyway?

It used to mean a person who brought shame or embarrassment to a family, but it's more often used now to mean the member who is just very different from everyone else—sometimes in a good way.

People need to stop throwing out unwanted advice.

And when it is requested, think before you speak.

People with mental disorders don't need everyone telling them they have a fix like "exercise" or "herbal supplements."
