“Ugly” Selfies and The Body Is Not An Apology

I just read a great article on The Cut about SF Bay area poet Sonya Renee Taylor, who did something pretty cool and started a body-positive website called The Body Is Not An Apology. Then, she did something else equally cool and chose a conventionally unattractive picture for her profile picture on Facebook. She did the latter because she felt she wasn’t practicing what her website preaches by un-tagging “ugly” photos that people uploaded of her so she decided to change that in a very public way.

I love the idea behind The Body Is Not An Apology and the mission statement. I think loving ourselves unapologetically, despite and BECAUSE OF our flaws, it’s something we ALL need to work on.

Also, this is apparently my 126th post. Par-tay!
