hey :-) i try to love my body every single day..my name is Seanny and i’m 19 years old
i am 156 lbs
I just think bodies are really cool. I think it’s really really healing, and important, and powerful to take away all the taboos associated with bodies. They are both over-sexualized and objectified, and seen as cause for shame and secrecy, needing to be hidden. I like to see them for what they are - BODIES.
It’s all part of the same thing - being disturbed and judgemental of nudity fits into the same spectrum as being obsessed with your body to the point of not enjoying life because you are trying so hard to maintain a certain standard of beauty. As a society, we have fucked up relationships with our bodies. We hate them, we love them, we use them to project all sorts of unnecessary importance onto.
I have body hair. I will change my clothes in front of almost anybody. I will post pictures like this online. I will talk openly about sex, and my period, and other facts-of-nature. Let’s just calm down, and ground ourselves here. I choose to live in harmony with my body.
We’re just animals, guys. None of this body stuff is a big deal. Skinniness and fatness and body hair and breasts and vulva and penises and height and feet and sweat and pregnancy and orgasms, just to name a few, are just a part of life. Welcome to having a body. Let’s stop being so intensely judgemental and uptight about our own bodies, and other people’s.
In order to really love and accept our own bodies, we need to stop making a big deal out of bodies in general. In other words; WE ALL NEED TO JUST TAKE A FUCKING CHILL PILL, AND REALIZE HOW COOL AND NORMAL BODIES ARE.
IT’S THE “AGED 27 1/3” BIT THAT MAKES ME CRY WITH LAUGHTER
this kills me!
They actually did it too.
this is adorable! and this is also why i think that most Brits are Mary Poppins….yeah I said it! Mary Poppins
My final project for Women and Gender Studies - Liberation Act.
I made these posters as a way to challenge socially constructed ideals of body image and fat shame. As a “plus size” person, I have encountered fat shame through out the entirety of my life and have struggled with insecurities stemming from socially constructed yet self-perceived inadequacies regarding my body image. I am tired of feeling ashamed, assumed as being lazy, and glanced at with disgust - all because of my weight.
I am not inadequate because of my weight. I am not broken, or mutated, or wrong - society is.
