One of the things we value here at Urban Glam Life is giving Body Positive women an opportunity to share there views and opinions on Beauty, Body Positivity Movement, Industries and The Culture. The essence of this is that we are also able to learn many aspects of the female psyche and some truly feel with what is going on.
Johanna was happy to share some of her views on the questions we posed and she gave us a good response, especially the last question. I will elaborate shortly.
What is your definition of Beauty ?
“I think that inner beauty is the most important thing, this is when you are good to others and kind. I believe this makes you beautiful! Also its important to love yourself and feel good within your body.”
Is Body Positivity a trend or an excuse for “Eye Candy” ?
“No. The Body Positivity Movement means that all body types must be accepted and loved and also seen in media. Its started with black, plussize women and continued on from there to include all women from different backgrounds.”
Should being Plussize or BBW signify you have a eating disorder ?
“Usually normal people are plus-size, so that is normal. Everybody can have a eating disorder. It has nothing to do with body size. Its a mental illness.”
How do you think the Corona-virus or Covid-19 will affect The Body Positivity Movement ?
“Maybe people are more likely to stay at home and take photos. Also there is more time to think about, what really matters in life. Is it really your body size?”
Johanna really hit the nail on the head with the last response. In a climate where thousands of people are contracting the virus and the loss of life due to this Pandemic, what really matters in our lives right now ? Should it be your Body size ? Should people really have it in their minds to Body Shame others. Not only that, as a plus-size woman should you even care ? As long as your mentally and physically that is that matters.
Thank Johanna for giving us this perspective – @taru_johanna84
