Bez retušu a cenzúry: Ženy svojimi fotkami ničia všetky stereotypy dnešnej doby

Svet sa v poslednom čase „točí“ okolo krásy a ideálu dokonalosti. No takýmto spôsobom často unikáme realite, ktorá je úplne odlišná. Každá žena by vraj mala byť štíhla, vysoká a vždy „nastajlovaná“ ako Hollywoodska herečka. No opak je pravdou a každá žena je jedinečná a krásna aj keď mnoho z nich sa uťahuje k vylepšovaniu svojich fotiek cez rôzne programy čo nie je dobrá voľba. Ženy by mali byť na seba hrdé také aké sú a nepoddávať sa názoru väčšiny.

#repost @maryscupofteaa: "Posing can do a lot. Last night I was going down a YouTube rabbit hole watching videos like “How To Pose Like a Model (Even If You Aren’t)” or “Tips for Flattering Instagram Photos.” It’s just crazy to me how this is a THING in our culture… buying outfits that’ll look “good on the Gram”, watching videos to look “good on the Gram” and spending time trying to look “good on the Gram.” And don’t get me wrong, I DO THIS. 🤣 Someone left a comment on my pic the other day saying, “the celebrities are not the problem, WE are the problem” and at first it rubbed me the wrong way because what do you mean??? So many celebrities and now “influencers” perpetuate beauty standards but then I realized: whoever left that comment has a point (probably why it rubbed me the wrong way 😅). To an extent, we do choose what we consume. Every time we like a photo. Every time we follow someone. Every time we buy a product. Every time we have a CHOICE to do those things. I do think that it’s a mix of both because sometimes you can’t get away from diet culture and beauty standards no matter how hard you try; it’s just EVERYWHERE. And it’s even harder if you’re a developing child or teen, it’s natural to want to fit in. But we, as consumers, as women, as people, have a choice. And making the harder choice to accept and love ourselves exactly as we are RIGHT NOW is what makes all the change. "

#repost @lovesweatfitness: "I almost deleted this picture. One, because I’m not one to post major booty shots, but really because my immediate reaction was 'OMG that is not my butt.' I have one million photos of myself where I look at my booty and am like 'Yea girl, get it' but the lighting and everything highlights every single dimple, stretch mark, and weird line from my shorts I was wearing and it was like looking at my butt under a microscope. I NEVER photoshop photos. I throw on a lighting filter and call it a day, so the good butt views and the bad are all real, this one was just REALLY upsetting at first. . As a personal trainer I always want to be an amazing example of strength for you girls, but often times strength is not in the physical as much as it’s in the emotional. So this is me being raw, real, and totally vulnerable. Sharing what I might consider one of the worst photos of me, but also one that reminds me of every step, struggle, and accomplishment that I’ve made throughout my journey. Losing 45lbs doesn’t mean you magically have a perfect body, free of cellulite or stretch marks. And women of ALL shapes and sizes have it too! We are all unique and our bodies are all completely different so you need to know it’s not just something reserved for someone with a few lbs to lose. . I am the strongest inside and out that I have ever been in my entire life. I honestly never think twice about the stretch marks on my butt or boobs or the cellulite that is there because I know I am working my butt off every day and living my best life. Those marks don’t define me. They don’t define my progress. And they absolutely don’t define my abilities as a trainer. . So here’s to posting the imperfect, embracing your beautiful bodies and all their 'flaws' because without them we would not be the people we are today!"

#repost: @mrsdingman.mama: "One of the biggest ways I stay motivated is by a constant stream of inspiration flowing my way. I find my best inspiration from other women who are on a similar mission toward self love and happiness. _ I love chatting with other moms or body positive strangers who share a similar goal of empowerment toward changing societies vision of beauty. Empowerment drives me to continue to better myself esteem and mind set to think positive and inspire others who may be struggling. _ I’ve been talking to so many others about this same issue of empowerment. So many times I see women putting down other women for their bodies. Don’t we have enough issues as it is?!? I received one particularly nasty troll comment a few weeks back that is just sticking with me and I have been trying to shake it off but I’m having trouble. _ I didn’t respond or comment on this message. I didn’t get angry or cry. I just simply deleted and blocked the women who left it. But, I just can’t seem to forget what she said to me. Of all the feelings I have toward this message, it’s that I feel sorry for her. I wanted to give her a hug and let her know that the more we put each other down, the worse off we will be. We can’t grow or be united as a strong sex if we are constantly at war. Empowered women empower women and that’s what I plan to do. _ We rise by lifting others."

#repost @amy_exercisingbalance: "My hubby snapped this pic as I fell asleep sitting up, breastfeeding our 2 week old twins. Exhausted doesn’t fully describe this experience as I was healing from 2 types of births (Baby A vaginal, Baby B cesarean) and my body is working non-freaking-stop to make all the milk for these boys. . This is the least flattering/aesthetically pleasing image I could share of me bfing my twins but, man, it makes me proud as I look back at how hard my body was working. Sneaking in a nap while the boys ate because, holy crap, I could have fallen asleep anywhere during that first year of their lives. . Our bfing journey lasted 28 months. I amazed myself. Each day/week/month/year that ticked away was mind boggling to me. We were figuring this thing out. Together. It was not easy and required so much sacrifice, but I was 1,000% committed to this part of my journey and thankfully we made progress together. . I enjoyed so many beautiful moments with my boys nursing side-by-side. The first time twins hold hands while bfing is heart-bursting 💗 Those moments of connection, warm snuggles, love given and received got me through." .

Aj o tomto je účet na Instagrame s názvom WomenIRL (Ženy v reálnom živote), ktorý ponúka bežné fotografie žien/matiek ale hlavné je to, že sa prezentujú také aké sú. Žiadna pretvárka, retuš alebo zavádzanie. Aj takto môžu vyzerať ženy! Aj keď denne čelia predsudkom od okolia či úplne cudzích ľudí.

#repost @jordanleedooley: "Took this photo last night. ⁣⁣ ⁣ LAST NIGHT, as a grown woman, not when I was 14 and going through puberty. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ My cystic acne had healed up pretty well over the last year or so and then, this past week, the right side of my face flared up worse than it has in a long time. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ A combination of oily skin in a dry environment (were still in AZ), hormones, not being as disciplined when it comes to sugar + dairy intake on vacation, and sweating in this 100+ degree heat with makeup on just did my face in. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ I know, it looks awful. But here’s the deal: it looks this bad because I sat in front of a mirror for 20 minutes picking at it. ⁣⁣⁣ I KNOW. That’s the worst thing you can do. But they were so painful I just wanted to get rid of them.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ That only made them worse and then everything started bleeding, naturally. ⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ I decided I need to go back and read chapter 3 of my own book again because I totally picked myself apart. 🙈 ⁣ ⁣ I didn’t even want to go out in public without makeup yesterday. ⁣⁣But I did because this face needed to heal, and girlfriend is learning to practice what she preaches. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Anyway, here’s my point: you can make all the changes and use all the products and heal all the scars and do all the things to create positive change, and just when you think you’re all good, you can have a major set back. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ But plz don’t let a set back hold you back from living your life. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ So, although yesterday I totally had a set back and picked myself apart, today I’m taking my own advice that I wrote in OYE: 'If you wouldn’t say it to your friend, don’t say it to yourself.' ⁣ Did you get that? Whatever set back or flare up of insecurity you might be having, whether it’s in your fitness journey or career or something else, that set back doesn’t have to hold you back. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ And IF YOU WOULDN’T SAY IT TO YOUR FRIEND, DON’T SAY IT TO YOURSELF. #OwnYourEveryday ⁣"

#repost @mayavorderstrasse: "The first and last time my precious Hazel ever nursed. I didn’t know that one person could feel so proud and so broken at the same time, right now I am a hormonal, emotional, and mental mess. Raising my arm in this picture was very difficult for me as I had to fight through uncontrollable tears: this picture meant that I would never breastfeed my Hazel ever again. I have been nursing for so long, that I don’t know what it’s like to not nurse anymore. As I looked behind the camera, Tim is crying like I had never seen him cry before, like seriously, a deep gut cry. I was her comfort, her safe place, and I hope she still finds me that way. A month shy of 2 years old, she finally has a bed in a shared bedroom with her sister. We bought Hazel her first bed, used any distraction we could come up with, snacks and new toys to keep her mind off of it. Tim has taken over bedtime completely, including all nighttime wakings. We are on our third day, and every day gets a little bit easier. The guilt I feel for not putting her to bed is so intense and I can’t wait to go back to it once she doesn’t ask to nurse anymore. Closing a chapter is painful, but I am hopeful that this new season of our lives will also be special in its own way. Through this maturation step she will not only grow more independent, but I will get a much needed break. She unlatched for the last time and sobbingly I said to Tim: 'I did my best.' He hugged me and responded with: 'No. You did THE best, because you gave her your all.' I love my family and am so thankful for such special and unforgettable moments like these. 💛"

#repost @maryscupofteaa: "I have a confession to make: when I first started sharing the message of self-love, I wasn’t 100% authentic. I wasn’t 100% authentic because I was tortured by the worst word in the English language: T-O-O. I took photos of my yummy rolls and shared them as long as it wasn’t “too much.” A little bit of cellulite was totally cool as long as it wasn’t “too much.” I talked about body positivity and fat phobia but was afraid people would think it’s “too much.” Too much. Too little. Too big. Too small. Too radical. Too quiet. Too thin. Too fat. Too smart. Too dumb. Too mean. Too nice. I’ve literally heard it all. From comments on Instagram, men I’ve dated, and society in general- this dumb, 3-letter word is thrown around everywhere, especially at women. And I’m f*cking done with it. My message will no longer be suppressed by T-O-O and I’ll be be sharing whatever I please 💁‍♀️ And I invite you to do the same. Stop being afraid of being T-O-O anything because other people’s opinions literally don’t matter! All that matters is that you like you. ♥️"

#repost @she_plusfive: "9 months in / 9 months out . . Same dirty mirror, same tired mom. When I took the picture on the left I was 40+4 days pregnant and just so over it!! I literally felt like I’d be pregnant for the rest of my life 😅 . . I think it’s so amazing how much has changed since, I look at the picture on the right and I’m so amazed. I may not look like a magazine cover girl but dang do I feel like it!! I feel so strong and beautiful for carrying life and sustaining it. I have so much love, admiration, and respect for all mothers. Those who carried life within and those who didn’t, because we all have wounds and scars of love, just in different places. . . No matter what you look like, or what your life looks like at this present moment, if you have a mirror go look at yourself and say to that woman how beautiful and strong and capable she is!" .

Veci, ktoré vidíme na Instagrame často nie sú reálne a každý sa snaží niečo skrývať iba preto aby pre ostatných vyzeral lepšie. No v skutočnosti ich niektorí ľudia považujú za svoje vzory čo môže viesť až k vážnym poruchám príjmu potravy. Niektorí ľudia sa môžu z týchto imaginárnych dokonalých životov dostať do depresie. No tento profil ukazuje, že prezentovanie skutočnosti je normálne aj, keď mnoho ľudí by bolo pobúrených.

#repost @eliseknowles who says she posted these words to her stories and received many messages from other moms who they resonated with: "It’s nothing new but so important to share; to break down the idea of the “perfect mum,” because we’re all the perfect mum, even when we’re over our child and their behavior, even when we yell or lose our cool, even when we’re fantasizing of an escape. . It’s ok to not “like” your child at any particular moment in the day. . It’s ok to cringe at the sound of your child’s voice after they’ve said “muuuuuuuum” for the thousandth time. . It’s ok to pretend you took a little longer on the toilet when instead you were just sitting there mindlessly enjoying the silence. . It’s ok to turn the music up in your car because your baby won’t stop screaming. . It’s ok because none of these things mean anything. You’re a good mum. You love your kid/s and you’re human. Motherhood is fucking hard and it’s ok to be over it some days."

#repost @welcometomarlalandblog: "This is what my unmedicated natural hospital birth looked like. It’s not something I’m too comfortable sharing but it’s raw and it’s real. I am so thankful I got to experience so much pain. Yes the most pain I have ever felt in my entire life and will probably ever feel again. Although I wanted an unmedicated birth I didn’t have much of a choice. I progressed too fast started contracting and in the span of less than 2 hours I gave birth with baby crowning in the car on the way to the hospital. I gave birth in the emergency room of triage without anyone but my partner, my mom and mother in law didn’t make it to see their second grand baby being born. Yet I am so thankful to my body and of course this team and my doctor. I always believed to be weak until this day. Although I had a failed epidural with my first I still opted for one and even if I didn’t have much of a choice I am so thankful for the strength I was given this day a day that changed my life forever."

#repost @thekaragon: "In the yrs before I got pregnant, I would always think that I would never be one to breastfeed in public. I figured I would go to the bathroom or the car or whatever hidden spot so not to be judged by anyone. The first time Kyro & I went out after he was born, I ended up nursing him in public. It was in the lobby of the hospital after my post-partum chk up. I used a cover & I continued to use a cover a few times more but it was miserable. My son & I would both get so hot & sweaty. I quickly dropped the cover & was immediately more comfortable (temperature-wise & breastfeeding in public-wise). My son deserves to eat when & where he gets hungry. And I deserve to feed him when & where he gets hungry. And w out judgement. Boobs are literally for feeding ones children. If someone is offended, that's THEIR problem."

#repost @motherjamfar: "I want to share more than a pretty breastfeeding picture for #worldbreastfeedingweek. We see the beauty and know the great benefits when you nurture your baby but we don’t see enough of the struggles that come with it. The sacrifices that we feel we should do in order to create this bond. People don’t talk enough about how much it still hurts to breastfeed after a year. We forget that mothers still prolong breastfeeding passed the basic 6 months time doctors recommend. Breastfeeding doesn’t get “easier” you just get accustomed to the different pain. We need to hear how much we lose our breasts when we choose to breastfeed, they never go back to the pre-pregnancy or pregnancy ways. They even change one more time when you completely stop breastfeeding. Every day we choose to breastfeed, we also know it comes along with a child pinching, biting, scratching, pulling asking for chi chi’s all the time. Alone time, say goodbye. You want to sit on the couch and watch tv, well your baby will join you at the boob, literally. Yes, it’s tiring. Yes it’s fucking hard. Yes, we complain about never enjoying the comfort of our body or space. I’ve heard people say breastfeeding is easy all you do it “pull your boob out” but it’s not true EVERY SINGLE DAY is a struggle. Some days have easier struggles than others but it’s never ever that simple. You overcome milestones only to enter new ones. Your time is not really your time, you adjust moving your whole life to comfort feed your baby. You plan day activities around a breastfeeding baby. Clothes are needing to be accessible to pop that chi chi out in pubic. It’s not a hard “job” it’s a hard life. Mamas who are going through breastfeeding right now, I fucking bow down to you, you are a queen and deserve to be fed all the snacks you crave for to make up for the calories you’re burning. You are all doing an amazing job and don’t ever let a pretty picture make you forget that. "

#repost @life.with.emmy.and.wrenly: "Someone once needed to drop something off to me and asked 'what time works for you?' I responded with 'anytime, I’ll be home all day.' The comment back shocked me, they said 'gosh I wish I was a stay at home mom so I had all the time do anything.' That was 3 years ago and I have never forgotten those words. So let me tell you what I do with my time all day. I breastfeed my second on demand all day. Thats 109,500 mins a year (but most likely more). I breastfed my first until 3 so that’s approximately 328,500 (who yes I continued to breastfeed on demand the whole time) and approximately 164,250 with my second so far (taking only a 3 month break in between). I change diapers all day sometimes multiple times an hour. I do loads of laundry, dishes, pick up toys about 100 times a day, heal ouies with a kiss, bounce a crying baby, play dress up with a wild toddler, figure out how to make teething more comfortable, cook breakfast lunch and dinner, teach colors, numbers, letters, shapes, and words, rub backs, and take care of sick children even when I’m sick. I read about 50 books a day and help paint a multitude of pictures. I rarely sit to eat, have a break to watch tv, or simply go to the bathroom alone let alone take a shower. I’m a cook, a cleaner, teacher, 'doctor,' a healer, comforter, lullaby singer, mother, and wife. I have no sick days, no time off, and barely any alone time. Yes it’s exhausting and yes it’s a lot of 'work' but I know for me, and I think for most, wouldn’t change it for a second. Because in all the chaos and piles of laundry there are millions of moments that fulfill me more then I could every dream. There is joy in the chaos and love in the mess. It is hard for all mothers whether working or stay at home. One is not better then the other and one is not harder then the other. Working or stay at home, we are all mother working 24/7 So let’s stop assuming what a mother’s day is like and praise every mother for all the work that they do."

#repost @thebellemethod: "This is what mornings look like around here as I get ready for work. I went to an afternoon holiday party on the weekend and brought Gabrielle with me. Less than a minute after I walked in, a woman who I’d never met came up to me and said, “Congratulations on your adoption, let me get you a cheeseburger.” I awkwardly laughed it off, as I believe she was attempting to be funny – but it got me thinking. Pregnant and postpartum women’s bodies seem to be fair game for commentary. Even by perfect strangers. Why does this exist? Opening up this dialogue because I’m truly wanting to explore this phenomenon more. I don’t think it’s right. Our bodies are all different. We are all doing our best. We all just created life. How about we focus on that for a sec!?"
