Are body language experts accurate?

Recently a YouTuber, Tati, did a comeback and mentioned feeling over criticized by body language channels. I can see that, she did some shady things and has admitted that but those channels acted like she is a psycho. I do think people shaking their head no indicates lying and sometimes you can tell when someone doesn't want to talk to the moron you're dating, but other then that I don't give it thought. However I don't like the prevalence of body language in psychology, it is ultimately based off assumptions and yet disabled people like me are told not to make assumptions. I think maybe there should be a handful of these people working for the CIA and that's it. This should be a hard job to get merit for and the ability shouldn't be afforded to someone with a Masters Degree alone.

Through my life experiences it's always been a female that brings up body language when she got something wrong as if it were my body language that caused the problem...not her. So my thoughts are it's some sort of fem inside out cop out.
