“It almost feels like my love of the outdoors happened over night. I didn’t grow up hiking or doing anything that required my hands getting dirty, but once I began, my life changed. I’ve given myself more; I now backpack, mountain bike, rock climb, snowboard and do everything and anything outdoors. I’m more than my weight, race, or past addictions. I move mountains.” - Lulu / @aviladanka

Body positivity is more than cis / white / able bodied / capitalist / western / straight / conforming / femme / other accepted identities. Bopo is about black, disabled, latinx, queer, bi, chronically ill, trans, non binary folks. Bopo is a political movement.
Regrann from @stinegreveillustration - @sofiehagendk says it best🙌🏻 I’m all for everybody feeling fantastic in their own body - I wish everyone would! But it’s really problematic that Body Positivity is used interchangeably with body love or self love. Body Positivity is a political movement. Body Positivity is for marginalized bodies, but thin, able-bodied, white bodies are somehow the new face of Body Positivity. This leaves very little room for the bodies it was created for!
If you’re thin, white, able-bodied, cis and heterosexual and post pictures of yourself under the BoPo tag we are all more inclined to listen to you and provide you with space. Please think about this, cause it’s at the expense of marginalized bodies and is that really helping anyone but people who look like you? .

We don’t deserve the surmounting obstacles that are before us, but we will find the strength within ourselves to overcome them and leave stronger than we could have imagined. Quote from @elizabeth_gilbert_writer.

The artist is @righthandedleftyartist this cartoon is referring to the incident where the police was called by a Starbucks employee or employees when they felt threatened by two black men simply sitting at a table waiting for their third friend to arrive for a business meeting, instead of handling the situation like fucking human beings and just leaving them alone, the Starbucks employee or employees decided to call the police and have these two men escorted out of the Starbucks in a humiliating show of systematic cultural and police racism that is pervasive in our country. I used to sit at coffee shops without ordering all the time and never had issues.

Take care of yourself. As I cannot change your circumstances, I can implore you to reach out to people who will listen to and comfort you without judgement. And f you do not have anyone like this in your life, it’s ok to journal and vent and feel what you’re feeling. Take a long bath. Eat something good and get some rest. What we can control—our self care—can make all the difference when things are tough. #selfcare

Yesterday’s Body Positive Meetup hosted by @mariawurtz [editor-in-chief of @thesugarmag] was a fabulous time! I got to meet people who I love from the industry including America’s Next Top Model finalist and body positive curve model @khrystyana ❤️ other fabulous super babes that I met were @file.jpg @iamlaurendozier @halesforay @pamyguzman ❤️@nourishedmindbody @yummyyaeli @andiemclarkson ❤️ @ashleysevcik @melzlookwellz @chelkro ❤️ @missfurey @daniellapajonas_ @nina.haines @jsun24 ❤️ sorry if I missed anyone! All these babes are so strong, sweet and intelligent. It truly warmed my heart to meet up with them, and have a heart to heart about what we could do to be better activists, and better humans on this earth! 🌏 .

Tbh - I had a huge fan girl moment with #Khrystyana because even before she announced she’d be on #antm I was a fan! She is even sweeter in person! Tonight is the finale of one of the most diverse seasons of America’s Next Top Model and I am rooting for her. Even if she doesn’t win the prize - to me she is already a winner! 😘 All these babes in this post are absolute GOLD! ⭐️✨💰❤️💯🙌🏼⭐️

I am Enough pins are ONLINE NOW! Go grab yourself one 💖 Plus check back Friday night for another new release 👀 @nedintheclouds #WAETribe

As a white passable Hispanic-Italian woman I know I have been shortchanged at plenty of jobs. But worse than that I know how much harder women of color have it. Even though this administration is rolling back progressive measures we must come together to press for change so that women no longer have to struggle and suffer. Be nice to another woman today, for she has been shortchanged in life and it’s our mission to end that shit. Everyone is tagged in the photos too. So artists and the integrity of their work is observed.

Bit of newness coming up this week 😬😍💖 Fav mug from @hausofmono 👌🏼 #WAETribe

It’s really this simple! Don’t believe me? Here. I broke it down into three simple rules men must follow to know their role in a world evolving thanks to feminism.
1. Listen to women.
2. Challenge your male privilege.
3. HOLD OTHER MEN ACCOUNTABLE...even if it feels uncool.
Repost from @guerrillafeminism.

I know you aren’t supposed to have favourites but if I ever did, this one would be it 🖤 #unapolgeticwoman #WAETribe
