I read an interesting post this week from Cece Olisa. She talks about whether black women get some kind of “plus size pass.” She talks about how harmful that is to women of color and unfair to generalize.
She says, “These plus-size pass rumors are dangerous. All women, including women of color, have body image issues. All women, including women of color, have to work to become confident in the skin they’re in.”
How true. But now, what do we do about it? How do we stop the passing on of untrue stereotypes? One step at at time.
We should all be talking about how important it is for each one of us to have our own definition of what positive body image means.
