I thought long and hard whether I should post this or not. I also thought about if I should edit it in any way. I have arrived at the conclusion to answer the first thought with ‘yes’, the second with ‘no’. Here’s why.Thanks to a flawed society, double standards, and some personal issues, I grew up believing women should cover up, because it’s not ladylike and classy to reveal a lot of skin; in addition to this, keeping naked skin to a minimum would reduce greedy stares and suggestive comments by men, something I’ve been terrified of as long as I can remember.And thanks to some idiots who feel they can only cope with their own unhappiness by hurting others, I was shamed for my body countless times growing up. For the way I dressed, for my body shape, for my weight, for anything really. The result? I hated my body, I was ashamed of it, and I felt constantly uncomfortable in my own skin. I couldn’t stand looking at myself dressed, let alone in my underwear or god forbid naked.For the longest time, I was trapped, in a horrible vortex of predesigned ideas of female sexuality and sexualization, bullying, and self-loathing. But fast forward a couple years, and here I am.Thanks to hard work and great people by my side, I managed to recover from this me that had already given up on myself. I managed to shake off layer after layer - figuratively, and literally - to get to the core of who I am. And what I am now - is proud, and confident, and happy with the way I look. What I’m not happy with? The way women are still sexualized and shamed. In fact, I am right darn furious about it. And I refuse to be defined or limited by it any longer.The idea for this picture came to me by chance, when I was about to take a shower and, turning around, happened to catch a glance of myself in the mirror, with my hair falling over my bare back, and I realized I was thinking “this looks really beautiful”. So I decided to recreate it for the camera, and still I was amazed when I saw the actual picture. The way it is, unedited, it captures a vulnaribility and at the same time a kind of strength I can’t help but adore. I feel like it says so much, without saying anything at all. And if you ask me, pictures like this one are not so much revealing as aesthetic, for what is more classy than a bit of mystery. For the first time, I am free. Not from how others may think about me, but from my caring about it. I have come to see my own beauty, first inside, and finally - outside too. And it’s the most liberating feeling I have ever experienced.

one time when i was like 12 my dad wanted me to put a dvd in the dvd player and i was like ‘what do i get in return’ and he said ‘you can have half of the winnings of this stupid lotto ticket’ and he ended up winning 600,000 dollars and i was so pleased with myself. 300,000 dollars when youre 12 is pretty much like infinity dollars. he was so mad

Shit, man, $300,000 would be like infinity dollars to me now.

look completely different

i guess you could say they upgraded

Cyber men’s society is based on making stuff better

Dalek society believes they are already the best they could be so why change
