As you read this, 300,000 people online are untagging, deleting, burying deep in the recesses of the junk folder pictures they consider “bad”. Social media has created a digital army of perfect smiles and brilliantly coiffed heads who all believe the only pictures that should be seen are the ones where we look “good”.
“Bad” Picture Monday reminds us there is no “bad” way to inhabit a body. Each Monday we encourage people around the world to change their profile pictures to photos they do not like.
Why should you participate in “Bad” Picture Monday?
- “Bad” Picture Monday helps us exercise our radical self-love muscles by asking us to actively challenge the hyper image consciousness that forces us to believe we must be “perfect” or “pretty” to be valuable.
- “Bad” Picture Monday reminds us that photos that capture our moments of joy, laughter, and connection emanate with our true nature of radical self-love, which means it is impossible for that image to be “bad”.
- “Bad” Picture Monday challenges body terrorism by refusing the politics of invisibility. We affirm that there is no way our bodies can be on this planet that does not deserve to be seen, valued, and loved, radically.
Shame is ugly! YOU are GORGEOUS. Follow us on Instagram. This Monday share your “Bad” Picture and join the Unapologetic Movement!
