Body positivity vs Body Neutrality: COVID teaches to be Body Neutral

Bodies. The shape. The size of the body. The appearance. The Colour. How we look. All of these have been factors that have been used to police the body image of people. These are the parameters that society and even individuals have been fixing for themselves, shaping the idea of an ideal body. And breaking this analogy, there come the body acceptance movements. The movement started with the idea of body positivity. And now, the need is to shift the focus on body neutrality, another body acceptance movement. And perhaps, the need amid the COVID crisis is to follow body neutrality, the idea of being thankful to your body for carrying you safely through this disaster. But before discussing the change in the advocacy, let’s discuss body positivity vs body neutrality.
