Body positivity is a movement that advocates acceptance and respect towards all types of bodies. It aims to encourage self-confidence, tackle body shaming, and foster self-acceptance, irrespective of body size, shape, or appearance. This movement champions the mental health of everyone, regardless of their gender.

The TikToker remains unaffected by the negativity

Australian TikToker, Ariel Nysa, actively promotes the body-positive movement. She seems undeterred by what many might perceive as her flawed body. A lack of insecurity allows her to thoroughly enjoy life. She frequently posts photos in just a bikini on social media, unashamedly showing her body, complete with cellulite and stretch marks. Regrettably, her transparency isn't universally applauded. Many followers leave sarcastic comments under her posts, often comparing her legs to "a grandmother's", "sagging testicles", or "wrinkled and ugly".

Luckily, society's awareness of body positivity is growing. Ariel now receives abundant compliments. Many people express gratitude for her courage and support, which she extends to her followers. Ariel recently shared an open-hearted post on Instagram about her earlier struggles with her appearance, largely due to the unattainable 'female ideal' portrayed in glossy magazines. She emphasizes the ease with which public opinion can be manipulated today, often through photo editing software.
