One year ago, this picture would have made me cry.
This is my body right now.
It's not perfect by the standards of patriarchal society - but it's a body that has carried me through countless wins, losses, and lots of naps.
This body has endured eating disorders, surgeries, miscarriage, sexual assault, hate, cruelty, roller derby and weight lifting. It's been so incredibly kind to me, even when I wasn't nice back to it. It's moved me to and from countries (Macedonia, Australia, USA and more) and has survived every challenge that was thrown at it.
I wasn't planning on posting this, but my darling @feliiiciia told me that the world needs to see dem legs that created two PRs last week. And her support and encouragement made me think - we need to see more real bodies. I am not ashamed, I am not afraid, and I refuse to cover up just because it is expected in current society. I proudly display this body. You should do the same with yours.
