Does having a strong opinion about the behavior of random strangers you’ll never influence also induce delusions, say, of a kind of power of knowledge over them that they’ll never know?
People who follow memes and political pundits love mocking body positivity because a lot of it is people who are overweight accepting what they see in the mirror and then if they wish to work on themselves, they’ll be doing so from a positive footing, not a “you are bad until” angle.
I saw a commercial the other day that was a really excellent example of body positivity.
i don’t watch much tv so maybe it’s more common than I know, but I’ll try to remember what the brand was. There were women dancing who were large one who seemed unsure. May have been selling jeans.

I’m sure it’s the target of all kinds of memes and lots of hate.
They’re selling jeans to large women. The large women exist and want jeans. Showing them dancing will make them think about buying jeans and maybe having a bit of esteem.
With a bit of esteem, comes a positive footing for whatever, including whatever goals you think should be their only ones.
