I don’t plan to write a lot of posts about things I say on Twitter, because I figure if you want to read it you’ll read it on Twitter.
But I have a couple today I’d like to share to a wider audience.
Today, Polimicks (of http://www.polimicks.com/ and http://polimicks.livejournal.com) decided to tweet about body acceptance, using a “#bodyacceptance” tag (which in twitter searches for things with that tag). Some of the things she tweeted were:
Polimicks#bodyacceptance Don’t know if this tag exists, but it does now. I have some griping to do about diet culture today.
Polimicks#bodyacceptance Diet policing in general, and I know it’s mostly subconscious for a lot of folks.
Polimicks#bodyacceptance The constant, almost subconscious body and diet policing we all do. “Should she be wearing THAT?” So hard to stop.
Polimicks#bodyacceptance Oh, and if you’re only polite to people you find fuckable, you’re an asshole.
I decided to join in.

Living400lbs You only have one body. Why is making peace with it a radical act? #bodyacceptance
So…thought y’all might like the sentiments (or links) and those of you on twitter might want to join the party ;)
