I've mentioned this in other comments: I agree that not paying attention to, or ignoring, or not caring about other people's comments is the ideal way to be. But I don't know that if we are truly honest with ourselves, whether that's possible all the time.

I definitely agree that body preferences are always reductionist. That's a better way to say a lot of what I was trying to say here.
