I'm here to APPLAUD your soapbox moment and second your overall response. Boundaries (and surrounding yourself with people who respect them) are important.

Stopping people from harming you (in this example by promoting diet culture) is hard and important work.

I’ve been struggling to be less of a people pleaser for years now. Something I repeat to myself is that if someone has a problem with me or anything I do that isn’t harming another person, they can either deal with it or leave and it’s helped me so much with my self worth. It’s hard to leave friends behind and better yourself but it is soo worth it, i wish you luck with your journey :)

I stopped reading as soon as I encountered the phrase "women identify folks." You lost all creditability right there. Seriously, stop the bullshit! You are either born a woman or you are not!

I do not care. If you are changing it is going to be for a positive change. You can measure all friends versus enemy-forevers by whether or not they support you when you change - enough to allow time for they to question you or challenge you.
