I think I expected something different when I read the title, but you’re totally right. Sounds like you’re saying skinny jeans aren’t body negative either. Clothes aren’t body positive or negative; people are. If you love your body, skinny jeans won’t make you feel worse about it. If you don’t love your body, wearing Hammer pants isn’t going to help a whole lot. Gen Z is still working through that whole young person’s Achilles heel of having the best intentions and the purest morals but being wrong about almost everything.

I admit, Im another person who never knew anything about lipedema until now. This piece touched my heart, and showed me a couple blind spots I could be working on. You got through to me with this.
