THIS WOMAN IS MY QUEEN πŸ‘‘ When I met @gracefvictory two years ago I was completely in awe of her beauty, her passion, her determination. To me she was perfect in every way, and it broke my heart to know that she didn't see herself the way I saw her.
Fast forward to now, and I couldn't be prouder of the self love and recovery that she's fought for πŸ’™ and seeing how at peace in her skin she is in this picture makes me heart so so happy. Grace, you are a true goddess and I love you. You guys - get this woman on your feed, you won't regret it! Here's her caption on this photo ⬇ ・・・
Body positivity changed my life because never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd be able to post a photo like this on the internet. I had been at war with my body for so long that I couldn't imagine life being at peace with it, but here I am πŸ’— This your daily reminder that the only thing that matters is how YOU see YOURSELF through YOUR own eyes. The world will try and break you and mould you to fit inside a box - it's okay that you don't fit it, infact it's even better. Because everything that you are NOT, makes you everything you ARE and I hope you realise today.. just how powerful and wonderful you really are. πŸ“·by @lindablacker

❗BREAKING NEWS❗It turns out, another person's value is NOT dependent on how attractive you find them!
This news seems to have hit the hardest amongst those who use the concept of 'fuckability' as a way of rating someone else's worth.
One source was quoted as saying 'but I thought other people's bodies only existed in the world for me to pass judgement on? Where will I get my own sense of self importance and validation from if I can't objectify people?!'
Meanwhile the evidence shows that people who recognise the value of others beyond their bodies and treat them with basic respect and dignity regardless of how they look are much nicer human beings than the aforementioned believers in 'fuckability'.
Thanks for tuning into this week's Bopo News and goodnight! πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’šπŸŒˆπŸŒž

Just lookin' cute outside the castle 🌸 & waiting for Disney to announce a fat princess, a disabled princess, a queer princess, an older princess and more princesses of colour pleeeeeease πŸ’

I've been in Paris for the past 2 days with @theunedit because Ben decided to surprise me with a trip away (100 boyfriend points for you @johnsty89) πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’šπŸŒˆπŸŒž These AMAZING floral ears were custom made by @annekajambabyart on Etsy and I'm so in love with them 🌸

A BEAUTIFUL visual reminder from @vandeaarde 🌸 we've only been made to see parts of our bodies as 'flaws' so that industries can make money by promising to fix us. But look how breathtaking those parts truly are - we were never EVER flawed, and we sure as hell don't need fixing. πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’šπŸŒˆπŸŒž

TRIGGER WARNING: sexual assault ⬇

I once smiled at a man in a club. He walked over and told me we should go find somewhere quieter. I told him my friends were here. He took my arm and lead me out of the club, round the corner, enclosed me against a wall, pulled his dick out and asked if I wanted to suck it or just put it straight in. I let him kiss me until passing footsteps made him stop and look round, and I took my opportunity to run back to the club, back to my friends, back to pretending what just happened was completely normal. Or rather, not pretending, because it was normal; normal as in commonplace, normal as in regular.

So normal that I didn't even recognise it as an assault because in 18 years of existing in the world as a female I'd been conditioned into believing that a man was allowed to take what he wanted of my body, and that I wasn't allowed to protest.

That's one memory of many that came when I saw the #MeToo campaign. The truth is that every woman I know has a memory of being sexually harassed, assaulted, or raped. We also all know that we're supposed to keep them quiet. If we don't, the attacks will come. The victim blaming. The slut shaming. The accusations. The threats. We all know.

Should we have to keep unburying these memories and putting them on display to prove the problem? No. It shouldn't fall on the victim, again and again, to relive their trauma to make the world believe them. Because if we were truly listening, we'd already know the magnitude of the problem.

But since we live in a culture that would rather silence us than believe us (because believing us would mean men having to recognise their part in it, and having to change), I'll say #MeToo as well. More times than I'd like to remember.

To any survivors (of any gender) reading this who've experienced sexual harassment, assault, or rape: I believe you. I see you. You don't have to keep telling the story of your trauma. You don't have to re-open those wounds for them to be valid. But please know that you are still heard, valued, and worthy of healing. πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’šπŸŒˆπŸŒž
P.s. reminder that the 'Me Too' movement was created by Tarana Burke (@fortyisthenew40) almost 10 years ago🌸

Okay I didn't but I DID have an amazing day at @bodykindfestival πŸ’œ today I did a talk all about body positivity and how to let go of the fear of fat, and yesterday I got to go into the local school and speak with hundreds of kids about body image. So I pretty much FEEL like I have rainbow wings (swipe to see how majestic they are!)
Thank you so much to @dinah.gibbons and everyone else at @bodykindfestival for making this weekend happen, I am so grateful and my heart is so full. πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’šπŸŒˆπŸŒž
P.s. shoutout to my bae @theunedit for the πŸ“· @fannysparkler for being the brains behind the wings and @schoolofstrut for holding one up and hiding behind it so sneakily πŸ˜‰πŸŒΈ

PSA: you look fucking fantastic. πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’šπŸŒˆπŸŒž

I remember asking my mum to take the picture on the left, she smiled at me afterwards and said 'there's barely anything left of you!' For a minute I felt that hollow happiness that came whenever someone mentioned how much weight I'd lost. And then it was gone. Because it only took a second for that happiness to turn into panic about how I'd look to everyone else, and how much more weight I had to lose before I could REALLY be happy with myself.

The thing is, there was always more weight to lose. More 'problem areas' to tone. More 'flaws' to fix. Which meant that happiness kept slipping through my grip. I couldn't understand how I was playing by the rules so well and still missing out on the grand prize.

It turns out, when you put the grand prize of happiness at the end of a body transformation, you'll always being playing for an illusion.
Because changing your body doesn't heal your soul. Losing weight doesn't fulfil your life purpose. And punishing your body every day for how it looks will never make you happy. You cannot hate yourself into loving yourself, no matter how hard you try.

There's a lot more of me now. Not just of my body, but of every part of me. My voice. My mind. My passion. The parts that matter a whole lot more than the size of my thighs.
There's more happiness, too. Not every day - it comes and goes just like everyone else's. But when it's here, it's not hollow anymore. It's full, and vibrant, and healing. And it will NEVER be dependent on something as meaningless as my size again. I'd take that kind of happiness over the other, any day of the week. πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’šπŸŒˆπŸŒž

A few things I want you to remember if you're struggling with any aspect of your mental health right now: 🌻You are not a failure.
🌼 Your voice is important.
πŸ’ You are allowed to set boundaries with people, conversations or situations that are harmful to you.
🌷 You ARE doing good enough.
🌸 Your productivity levels do not define you or determine your value.
🌹 Taking medication for mental illness isn't shameful.
🌺 You are important and you are loved, even if it doesn't always feel that way.

And you're allowed to prioritise your mental health, now and always. πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’šπŸŒˆπŸŒž #WorldMentalHealthDay

Pretty much obsessed with this photoshoot by @sheakendall πŸ”₯ swipe for more magic! πŸ‘‰πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’šπŸŒˆπŸŒž [Image description: several group photos of women who are different shapes, sizes and skin colours, wearing nude underwear, hugging and leaning on each other against a white background.]

Listen up guys - we need to talk about this. πŸ™‹ Reminder: body positivity is not just about feeling good in your body. It's about the equality of ALL bodies. And since our society does not value all bodies equally, we have to fight for the ones who get pushed to the margins. Who are deemed less acceptable, less valuable, and who so often get left behind.

People with disabilities are consistently left behind, even in activist spaces, because the world is rarely accessible. Check out this quote from Stella Young, who was a journalist, comedian and disability activist: "My disability exists not because I use a wheelchair, but because the broader environment isn't accessible"

Accessibility for people with disabilities means that an environment, product or service can be accessed. Things that prevent accessibility are referred to as barriers. Some physical barriers that prevent accessibility for people with disabilities are: πŸ’œ no wheelchair access (ramps, lowered kerbs etc.)
πŸ’™ no Braille signage
πŸ’š no accessible parking/toilets
πŸ’› lack of availability of assistive technology (wheelchairs, walkers, prothesis, screen readers, hearing aids etc.) BUT it isn't just physical barriers that limit accessibility, often it's attitudinal barriers like stereotyping, stigma, prejudice & discrimination. And THIS is where we need to make our online space more accessible. By: πŸ’œ Making sure people with disabilities have visibility & positive representation. πŸ’™ NOT using disabled people for tokenism or inspiration porn (when we use disabled people just to tick a diversity box, or tell them how inspiring they are for existing, we limit their humanity & force them into a one dimensional archetype for our own comfort. This limits a disabled person's accessibility in social spaces by limiting who they can be). πŸ’š Eliminating ablelist language and slurs that further marginalize people with disabilities (do a google search). πŸ’› Not be afraid to confront our own prejudice, listen & learn.

WE NEED TO DO BETTER. We need to make body positivity accessible. We need to fight for ALL bodies. πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’šπŸŒˆπŸŒž
