"We get that you love yourself but why do you have to be half naked?" Β· "Put some clothes on." Β· "I'm all for body positivity but this is showing too much skin" Β·

Fact: the amount of skin a woman shows has nothing to do with how much respect she deserves OR how much she respects herself. Β·

Fact: a woman can choose to celebrate her body in its most natural state without it being for someone else's sexual pleasure or gratification. Β·

Fact: thinking 'SEX' or 'SLUT' or 'PUT SOME CLOTHES ON' as soon as you see any kind of nudity is something that you've been taught by a culture that tells us women's bodies are for the consumption of other people and never for ourselves. While hypersexualising female bodies at every turn it simultaneously teaches us that our sexuality is shameful and that our bodies are scandalous. The good thing? You can unlearn that. Β·

Flesh doesn't automatically equal sex. Our naked bodies are not shameful. We are just as worthy of respect dressed or undressed and how much skin we show is up to us. Take your casual misogyny and slut shaming elsewhere, and I'll just be over here celebrating myself however I damn well please. πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’šπŸŒˆπŸŒž

Eat whatever the hell you want and if people try to food shame you, eat them too. πŸ’

Female hunger has been policed for centuries. Our appetites are supposed to be like us - small, demure, controlled, not too wild, or unapologetic, or proud.

We're taught to deny our appetites in public, ignore our hunger pangs on diets, and be ashamed of listening to our bodies' cravings. We're trained to feel guilt at the mere sight of dessert and swear that a handful of nuts and seeds keeps us going for hours!

If you're like me, you learnt young that going hungry is part of being female. And guess what? I'm not buying it anymore. Fuck diet culture. Fuck archaic standards of femininity. WE DO NOT HAVE TO BE ASHAMED OF OUR APPETITES OR DENY OUR HUNGER ANYMORE.

Pick up that fork and eat my loves, I promise that you're allowed to. πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’šπŸŒˆπŸŒž

When life gives you lemons πŸ‹ (on a playsuit with only one left in your size so your sensible that's-enough-online-shopping-Megan voice is like girl bye πŸ‘‹). Did you guys know I wrote TWO blog posts last week on www.bodyposipanda.com? One on make-up and self love, and another for anyone in the ED recovery community who felt triggered watching To The Bone. If you read either lemme know what you thought β¬‡πŸ’œ and if you wanna read you can go click the link in my bio! πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’šπŸŒˆπŸŒž
P.s. the jumpsuit is River Island but I'm pretty sure it's all sold out now πŸ˜­πŸ‹

Once more for the people in the back: WE'VE BEEN TAUGHT TO HATE OUR BODIES FOR PROFIT. The diet industry in the US alone is worth over $60 billion, and thrives on making us believe that beauty and happiness will only come in a smaller size. Don't buy the bullshit anymore.
Your body doesn't have 'flaws', which means you don't need to buy things that don't work to fix your features that don't need fixing. You are flawless already. πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’šπŸŒˆπŸŒž

I LOVE THESE TWO HUMANS @scarrednotscared and @amalielee, and the caption Amalie wrote for this makes my heart SO happy πŸ’œβ¬‡
・・・
TWO BODIES - BOTH BIKINI BODIESπŸ‘™βœŒοΈ
Not to be compared, no one better than the other. Two bodies that both have been through hell and back.
I have survived anorexia, a condition that made my mind slowly waste away to nothingness.
My friend Michelle @scarrednotscared has survived a brain tumour, a punctured intestine, an obstructed bowel and a brain cyst. 15 surgeries has left her with several surgery scars.
It has taken us both a lot of time to build up confidence to wear bikinis, but now we're here and fuck whoever tries to take our confidence awayπŸ‘‹πŸ’‹

PSA: EATING DISORDERS COME IN ALL SHAPES/SIZES/SHADES/AGES/GENDERS/ABILITIES. And EVERY SINGLE ONE is worthy of recognition, support and treatment. No exceptions. There is no such thing as 'not sick enough' - eating disorders are mental illnesses, not BMI categories. There is no such thing as 'not deserving of recovery' - we all are.

Tomorrow a film that centres the narrative of a young, white, thin-enough-to-be-diagnosed, affluent-enough-to-afford-residential-treatment anorexia sufferer comes out. And for the record, that narrative is NOT the only one worth telling, even though it's the one we hear above all the others. Fat people get eating disorders (and not just binge eating disorder). People of colour get eating disorders. People who can't afford treatment get eating disorders. LGBTQIA+ people get eating disorders. ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE GET EATING DISORDERS, and we should be hearing those people's stories too.

For anyone currently in recovery who's ever been made to believe that their eating disorder isn't valid because of how their body looks - I see you, what you're going through is valid, you deserve recovery SO much, and I'm proud of you for fighting everyday even when the world doesn't recognise it. πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’šπŸŒˆπŸŒž P.s. if you're in recovery right now and there's any chance watching that film is going to be harmful for you, please PLEASE don't watch it. Put your mental health first, and keep fighting. ✨

I recently went make-up free for 6 weeks 🌞 for some people? No big deal. For someone who literally used to refuse to open the door to the postman without make-up on? Pretty big deal. And I've written all my thoughts on going barefaced, make-up culture and the beauty industry in a new blog post that you can find through the link in my bio πŸ’œ

I spent so long believing that make-up was something that I NEEDED to wear to be worthy of being seen in the world, and I STILL sometimes fall back into that thinking, despite knowing that NONE OF US exist to be visually appealing to other people when we go out.

And don't get it twisted - I'm not shaming people who wears make-up πŸ™… make-up can be an amazing creative outlet, self care ritual and form of artistry. But I also think we should be addressing how today's make-up culture is teaching so many people that they're not good enough unless they're perfectly contoured, highlighted, and on fleek (and making a whole lot of money doing it). Whatever you choose to do with that glorious face of yours, I need you to know that you are ALWAYS good enough as you are naturally. Whether you have acne, scarring, skin discolouration, dark circles or anything else we've been taught to see as 'flaws' (that actually aren't flaws at all) -YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH AS YOU ARE. πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’šπŸŒžπŸŒˆ

FAT πŸ‘ PEOPLE'S πŸ‘ BODIES πŸ‘ ARE πŸ‘ NOT πŸ‘ YOUR πŸ‘ BUSINESS πŸ‘ and also last time I checked people you don't even know loving themselves doesn't effect your life in any way soooo maybe just sit down, drink some water and keep your internalised fatphobia to yourself mmkay? πŸ˜„πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’šπŸŒˆπŸŒž
