I stumbled across Megan Jayne Crabbe's instagram page Body Positive Power and I fell in love.

Above are two pictures of Megan - a before and after her battle with anorexia.  Her message: you can love the body you have now and fuck our diet culture.  She posts pictures and amazing dancing-in-her-panties videos with her giggling rolls of softness:

After doing about 40 Bodysex workshops, I can say that I appreciate all body types.  There's beauty in every dimple, scar, and softness is very appealing (just as much as taut muscle).

Thandie Newton is the most honest woman in Hollywood.  If more actresses would shed the glamour and get real, it would be so much easier for young girls to have positive body image.

I'm loving the #freethenipple campaign on instragram (instagram is owned by Facebook) and had to post this pic by model Cara Delevingne. 

Her brief anatomy lesson shows how ridiculous censoring women's nipples really is especially when they don't censor men's nipples.  Let's keep the heat on and see if we can't change some things on social media.

Scout Willis Leads #FREETHENIPPLE Protest Against Instagram

This week Scout Willis protested her ban from Instagram for posting visible nipple shots by taking to the streets of nyc topless.  It's totally legal to bare your breasts on the streets of New York - so why not on Instagram and Facebook (FB purchased Instagram last year)?

I'm really sick and tired of the social media titans censoring the female body.  It's ok for corporate interests to exploit nipples - even mannequins have visible nipples now - but if you post a pic of your own body and they shut down your account?

Fuck you.  Fuck your puritanical leanings.  Let's see more real images of women's bodies minus the capitalistic interests and normalize nudity once and for all.

God damn it I love this young woman.

You'd like to think that things are better in some part of the world...that there's a place where kids are taught about their bodies and their sexuality.

This week a seventeen year old girl caused a riot in Sweden when she took to instagram and asked for tips on "sluts" in Gothenburg. She promised anonymity to anyone sending in pictures. More than 200 pictures were submitted, giving names and alleged sexual activities of girls and boys aged 13 to 14. The pictures were labeled with "slut" and "whore".

It went viral and grew to 8,000 followers in days. Thanks to a Facebook events page listing the address of this girl's school, a mob assembled to exact revenge. Here's the video:
