So for the last four months or so, I have taken part in the body positivity movement on Instagram, including posting photos of myself in my bikini and underwear/bra. Keep in mind that none of my photos have ever been sexually explicit or suggestive and that I have always been fully covered. As far as nudity goes, I show no more skin than a thin woman in a bikini. Below is a photo I uploaded last night, with the caption “I love my belly. ♥”


At approximately 2:05 am, I received an email from Instagram stating that a photo had been removed from my account for “violating the community guidelines.” I went to my page to find the above photo missing from my account. Angry and determined to make a point, I went to the tags on Instagram to find photos of women dressed in as much clothes as I was. I found entire pages dedicated to sharing women in sexually explicit and suggestive poses in half the clothes I am wearing in the above photo. I also found men, completely naked with the photo cropped to just miss their dick being in the photo. I reported these photos for nearly half an hour.

At exactly 3:58 am, I was logged off of my Instagram account while using it and then told that my account had been disabled for violating the community guidelines. My entire account containing over 560 followers and over 500 personal photos and memories of my self love journey were removed without warning.

I went to sleep crying, disgusted and angry that Instagram would do this. When I woke up, I found that every pornographic image I had reported was not only still there, but so was the pages offering to send people nudes in direct messages. That is the moment that I became enraged and determined to fight this.

This is not the first time that Instagram has practiced size discrimination. Meghan Tonjes went through a very similar situation and her story went viral. I am asking you to make this go viral as well, because THIS is not okay. By removing my photos and the photos of women of size and not the others, Instagram is effectively telling women that our fat bodies are more offensive to the eyes of children and their viewers than thin women half naked and blatant pornography. They are silencing us and telling us that our bodies are to be censored while the rest of the world can practice “cocks in socks” and post Victoria’s Secret Models.

I will not be silenced. After years of struggling with my body through depression, anxiety and self harm, I WILL NOT let a website tell me that my body is censor worthy simply because it is a fat body with cellulite and rolls. END SIZE DISCRIMINATION ON INSTAGRAM.


Who wants to judge my baby names


For a girl I like; Aurora, Huxley, Creedance, and Dooriya

For a boy I like; Kodiak, Prism, and Romani.


I like Aurora and Creedance - you could call her Cree or Dancer, which is really pretty! Kodiak and  Prism are both pretty cool, though out loud Prism sounds like “prison”. I like how Romani looks and sounds, but I’d be worried about contributing to the oppression against Romani people. Not to mention it’s just like callingsomeone “American” or “Spanish” or “Chinese”.    


I played a name game with Mr. Safety and am quite enraptured by my sibset. I think I’ll have to do something with them.

Madeline Songbird “Magpie”, 13

Broderick Meadow “Badger”, 9

Bartholomew Wind “Beau/Bow”, 8

Fenna Violet “Fen”, 5


Learned how to save a wilted lettuce (hint: soak in ice water for 15 min). Crispy salad is infinitely preferable to limp, soggy salad.

“There were no sex classes. No friendship classes. No classes on how to navigate a bureaucracy, build an organization, raise money, create a database, buy a house, love a child, spot a scam, talk someone out of suicide, or figure out what was important to me. Not knowing how to do these things is what messes people up in life, not whether they know algebra or can analyze literature.” William Upski Wimsatt (via fuckyeahradicaled)

Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead

Despite the musical numbers, a terrible horror film.

0/10,  would not recommend.
