This week’s Bawdy Love Q&A: How can I be a strong body positive advocate when I am being complimented on my weight loss?

The body positive and fat positive communities are safe places for people with othered bodies to support one another. But when a once-fat person loses some weight, she might start to feel disconnected from the community that supported her when she was fat.

The short answer? Remember that the body positive community supports all bodies, all shapes and sizes, including yours. You have the power to place the voices and bodies of people who are marginalized ahead of your own in order to continue revolutionary acceptance.

The long answer? Take a listen to find out.
