Body Acceptance

I ran across a meme a few days back that said body acceptance should be about burns victims and paraplegics rather than "people who can't stop eating."
I find two major problems with this.

The first is that I am pretty sure people with a lot of burning or who are missing limbs still eat, eating is a fairly essential part of life.

The second is that body acceptance already includes those people, body acceptance is for everybody that has a body and accepts that it is the way it is, however burns victims and paraplegics tend to get less media attention since people are generally too busy pearl clutching over the notion of fat people who don't hate themselves to even notice anybody else.
