The "Myth Busters" Series
The impact of stigmatization and discrimination on one’s body trust and body attunement is significant, which is why continuing to dismantle body hierarchies in our society must be at the foundation of the body positive movement. When one is navigating our society in their gender identity or sexuality, a relationship with one’s body and food intake can be impacted. We are passionate about busting myths so that all bodies can be safe to exist in this world, so this week we are busting the myth that…. “cisgender is the gender norm and the typical family system is a heterosexual household.”
Discrimination, confusion, shame placed on us by others, and bullying all impact our nervous system. As you will hear in our interview this episode with Neathery Falchuk, LCSW, CGP @ampleandrooted, this assault to the nervous system can impact one’s ability to be a mindful eater. Neathery discusses the importance of a sense of connectedness and belonging which helps calm our nervous systems, offers a safe space for our bodies to exist, and has a direct correlation on our relationship with food and movement. We encourage all of you listening to continue to receive education on what it means to be an LGBTQ+ ally, connect with organizations or communities that support the mental health and physical protection of this community, and make your home a safe space for ALL bodies.
