Fit is a Feminist Issue, Link Round Up #28

This is where we share stuff we can’t share on Facebook page for fear of being kicked out! Read why here. Usually the posts are about body image, sometimes there’s nudity but we’re all adults here. Right?

By the way, Facebook recently clarified its stance on nudity, writing, “We remove photographs of people displaying genitals or focusing in on fully exposed buttocks. We also restrict some images of female breasts if they include the nipple, but we always allow photos of women actively engaged in breastfeeding or showing breasts with post-mastectomy scarring. We also allow photographs of paintings, sculptures and other art that depicts nude figures.” For the full story see here.

Oh, so scary. Nipples!

Why does a fitness blog even care about body image? You can read about that here.

One thought on “Fit is a Feminist Issue, Link Round Up #28

  1. It’s no wonder women so often wind up with such negative body images, with the world around us shaming the female body (no nipples, menstruation is the devil’s work, stretch marks are gross…) and simultaneously hyper-sexualizing it all. The female form becomes an idolized thing that no one can feel comfortable having. I love what these artists have done. Thank you for sharing!
