I found this quote by one of my favorite authors Alex Elle online, and it really resonated with me. “I’m not afraid of my truth anymore, and I will not omit pieces of myself to make you more comfortable.”
P.S. This is another behind the scenes photo of a body positive campaign I shot earlier this year that will be coming out soon! (Bikini by Monif C)
so who says I can’t eat this damn chocolate cake?
Can I love all of you
I been waiting for this post all my life…..
Speachless. Wet. All in one.
I kind of know the fiancée of one of these girls. Lucky bastard!
where are these women and how can i find them
I’m having a moment. I know that there are plenty of women shaped like this and that plenty of women who are shaped like this feel sexy and beautiful all the time. And I know that I’ve seen plenty of images like this before and that this body type (my body type) is actually fairly well represented in media as of late (unlike some of my of my plus size sisters of different shapes or WOC) and for that I am thankful.
But the moment I am having right now though is that this is the first time I’ve looked at images like this and thought “wow, I kind of look like that. I bet I could be sexy like that if I wanted to.”
That’s a big moment for me. Also, HOT DAMN THESE LADIES ARE FINE!
This is why you cant trust women, even when theyre mouth is closed theyre still lying to you
you do realize that this is really hurtful right?
i did not do this to show how i am ‘lying’ to men or anyone, it’s not about how you, as a man, should feel about it - it’s about myself.
to me your statement sounds as if the left side of this picture is something awful or horrible. and no, it’s not. it is my face - with and without makeup. and whether i chose to wear it or not is MY AND JUST MY decision. and when i do, i do it for myself - so that i feel good about myself - not for you.
not to mention it’s the fucking patriarchy that demands women always wear make up and look 10/10, but when we go natural we apparently look like shit to them (not that she does in the slightest), and when we show ourselves in make up, these same men call us vain, liars, etc
patriarchy = telling women to look pretty, then tearing them down for doing it
and as she said, makeup is for HER, not for MEN, and not for YOU, fuck you scorpsswimmer
On the left we have the lyrics from Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines. On the right we rape survivors participating in Project Unbreakable, showing the various things that were said to them by their rapist.
i think this is the most powerful photoset i’ve ever seen on tumblr.
Reblogging until you understand why this song is so vile
