MY MANIFESTO

I BELIEVE IN A WORLD WHERE...

Our lived experience and the wisdom of our bodies is trusted and regarded as a necessary, important, and reliable form of knowledge.

 

Our appetites and desires aren't feared or seen as untrustworthy, sinful, or selfish.

 

All people are worthy of acceptance, respect, love and belonging regardless of size, ethnicity, race, gender, sexual orientation, age, religious beliefs, and abilities.

 

BMI/body size are not used as indicators of health.

 

Larger bodies are not discriminated against or valued any less than smaller ones. 

 

Our worth and goodness as a human isn't based on what we eat.

 

Joy and pleasure can be the main motivators behind movement; not punishment, control, guilt, or compensation.

 

Health is individual and personal, not something we are obliged to actively "attain" as human beings or something that dictates our worth.

 

Pleasure isn't indulgent but necessary for thriving in the world.
