Body Positive: Why You Shouldn't Call Food "Crap"
This goes for other synonyms of “crap” too - junk, unhealthy, BAD, disgusting, artery clogging/heart attack inducing, poison, not “real”, empty calories, etc.
1. It literally isn’t true. Food is not poop. No matter what the nutritional qualities of certain foods are, it is not bodily…
Exactly, if you can’t respect the food you eat, don’t eat it, if you eat it, respect it. How can it not undermine a person’s self respect, to frame themselves as someone who puts “crap” or “junk” in their own self? It is not even self chosen, it comes from those seeking to advance their own food agendas. Its like being mentally colonized by them, seeing yourself through their eyes, not your own.
It’s also telling that they don’t feel the merits of what they wish you to eat should be the focus of their persuasion. Soooo negative.
