why-not-a-full-body-photo

“You have a great body, why are you still single?!”
Idk maybe because People tend to focus solely on my physical assets and sexualize me instead of getting to know me as a person and view me romantically. Literally five minutes ago I had a guy tell me that he deserves to see my body because he paid attention to me for a few days. He then deleted me when it took too long to reply. I’ve been sexualized since I was ten years old from guys ranging from my age to their mid-fifties. They all stop talking to me though once I try to be viewed as human, or anything other than a pair of tits. I hated my body for so long because I blamed it for preventing people from seeing me as someone. I refused to let photos be taken of my body for that reason. I’m just now becoming comfortable with my body and no longer blaming it for all the shitty things that I’ve had happen to me. I refuse to blame myself anymore. I refuse to hate myself anymore. I refuse to be viewed as anything other than what I am. And that is not a pair of tits.

mianites replied to your photo

“actually terrified rn jordan why would you do this”

oh dear

i guess i now know what the semi finale will be about and why it will be disturbing

  • mianite becomes full metal trashcan god (possible implied body horror)
  • ianite is revived as zombie (more implied body horror)
  • dianite is revived and becomes the dianite we all knew from s1 and is just salty with (no, keep spirit dianite, no salt, pls no hurty omg)
  • spark returns and blames sparklez for ianite’s dead/zombie-fied state and then has a breakdown
  • everyone cries

In the casino bathroom, Week 27
Note: I don’t get the chance to take many full-body photos. You can clearly see why it isn’t a bit deal. Ugh. To make matters worse, I lost my money. 

A Photo of Me…
52 Week Project, Year 3

After two years of this photo project, I’ve learned a few things about myself. The first year I completed this, I realized that while I am not the most outgoing person, I have a few really good friends and a wonderful family.

This past year, I learned that my circle of close friends is very small. I won’t say that I don’t have any friends… because I do… I just don’t see them often. And also, some of my friendships have really changed. I knew this, but seeing my photos weekly, it became glaringly clear. I would like to fix that.

Maybe this year…

A Photo of Me… has no theme. It’ll be me doing whatever, whenever, where ever, and/or with whomever

Ugh

So, I’m going through the photos of the cosplay formal I went to yesterday that were taken by the photographer person there, and I just??? Hate the way I look?? In every one of them??
I mean, I have some photos of myself that I took while there, and I like them enough. But that’s because I got some flattering angles of just my shoulders up?
But the ones the photographer took were mostly full body, and I just can’t stand to look at the photos without feeling this extreme hatred for how I look.
I dunno, just, when I look at them, I don’t see “oh there I am in cosplay.” What I see is, “oh my god how on earth did I even think I looked remotely good in that dress? I look awful. Why did I think going was a good idea? How and why did people talk to me or even feel okay being around me without wanting to vomit? Why did they allow a disgusting pig like me into the dance?”
And it’s not just this one instance, it’s any photo of me that I didn’t take and have the advantage of being in control of the angles and lighting. I just look at the photos and I feel sick that I look the way that I do. And there’s nothing I can do about it.
It’s not just photos either. Just in general day to day life. I’ll wake up and think “okay, today should finally be an okay day” then I remember what I look like and think “God I’m so ugly and disgusting I hate myself” and I want to vomit. Sometimes I just want to cut off everything I hate about myself and throw it away forever so that I can actually be happy with the way I look for once. Sometimes I wish I could just go back to thinking I looked good and not have to deal with this gut wrenching feeling that I’m disgustingly hideous and should just never leave my house.

It is time for us to all come together! That is why we started the #girlgang because together we can make a difference! I posted about the #bellybuttonchallange today because girls were asking me what I thought about it. I posted a pic flipping it off because that is truly how I feel. These things are so damaging to young girls and have nothing to do with health! I asked girls to join me and post photos going against this “challenge.” It is working!!! Our #girlgang is filling the #bellybuttonchallang full of body positivity! That is so important because the girls who click on that # could find your photo instead! All it takes is one seed of positivity to be planted to challenge these ideas! We can all be role models but we have to take action. We have to join together because it is not about us it is about the message. We are more than our bodies and for those of us who are lucky enough to realize this, it is our duty to teach! Let’s do this! Join us @healthyisthenewskinny 💪 #healthyisthenewskinny #katiehwillcox #bodyimage #gamechanger #change #bodylove #riseup #girlpower #joinus

anonymous asked:

As I said I am proud of my body, even if it isn't perfect, fuck anyone who tells me it should be different or it isn't beautiful. Also I mean even if you don't take full nude photos, like what is so taboo about women like us showing our breasts, I mean men walk around topless all the time and can pose topless without any judgement, but women, oh no! And I guess that's why I also posted nudes as a big fuck you to society and their mysoginistic ways. be proud to be a woman and take that bra off!

I think we would be amazing friends. You are Hella. Preach it girl

Why Your Sunscreen May Not Protect You as Much as You Think

Eighty percent of sunscreens contain harmful ingredients or don’t offer enough protection against the full spectrum of ultraviolet radiation, according to a new report. How concerned should you be? (Photo: Corbis/Pinkypills)

You slather on sunscreen whenever you go out in the sun — at least most of the time. You reapply every two hours — or around then. But are you as protected as you think against the sun’s harmful rays?

Probably not, according to a wide body of research that suggests U.S. sunscreens offer inferior protection against one type of ultraviolet (UV) ray, and that improper and lax application — encouraged by a false sense of security provided by ultra-high SPF numbers — could diminish sunscreen effectiveness.

Today, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) released its annual sunscreen guide, which analyzed more than 1,700 products. The EWG’s analysis looked at the concentration of active ingredients in the sunscreen, along with the combination of chemicals in the products. The results: According to the EWG, 80 percent of products contained ingredients the group deems harmful, that offer poor UV protection, or both. 

Also today, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released research showing that only 30 percent of women and 15 percent of men apply sunscreen, even when they’re spending an extended amount of time in the sun. The study was published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology.

Products by CVS, Neutrogena, Banana Boat, Coppertone, and NO-AD made the EWG’s Sunscreen Hall of Shame due to ingredients the EWG deems harmful (oxybenzone and retinyl palmitate) or ultra-high SPF values.

More than 200 products made the EWG’s list of Best Beach and Sport Sunscreens, including products by Alba Botanica, Blue Frog, Blue Lizard, The Honest Company, and True Natural. The EWG also publishes a list of the Best Beach and Sport Sunscreens: Non-Mineral Options for consumers who want to avoid titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, which can leave a white coating on the skin.

The EWG’s concerns aren’t new. The report highlights concerns about controversial chemicals, labeling, and product formulation that have been going on for years. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration took a big step in 2011, when the agency set requirements for sunscreen labeling. But many problems still remain.

These concerns, of course, don’t imply that people should stop wearing sunscreen. A landmark study of Australian adults published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology found that daily sunscreen use reduced by 50 percent the risk for melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, a full decade after the experiment ended. The same study found that sunscreen use reduced the rates of invasive melanoma by more than 70 percent. (It’s worth noting that the subjects used SPF 16 sunscreen; protection would theoretically be greater if they had used a higher SPF.)

Still, “there’s room for improvement,” says Steven Wang, MD, director of dermatology and dermatologic surgery at Memorial Sloan Kettering Center.

Problem #1: Products Don’t Offer Enough Broad-Spectrum Protection

There are two types of UV rays that play a role in skin cancer: UVA and UVB. UVB (think: burning) rays burn the skin and can cause DNA mutations that lead to skin cancer. UVA (think: aging) rays penetrate deeper into the skin. They cause skin aging and wrinkling, and are linked to melanoma, says EWG senior analyst Sonya Lunder, MPH.

(Infographic: Erik Mace for Yahoo Health)

“A big problem with U.S. sunscreens is that the requirement to call your sunscreen broad spectrum and imply that you’re protecting against UVA is a very weak standard, and almost every sunscreen on the market meets that standard,” Lunder tells Yahoo Health.

The EWG estimates that half of all sunscreens with a broad-spectrum label wouldn’t be allowed to be sold in Europe, which uses a higher standard for UVA protection.

“This is something consumers can’t tell by reading a product label, and it’s a really misleading part of sunscreen marketing in the United States,” Lunder says.

Problem #2: Potentially Dangerous Ingredients

Here’s where the science gets tricky. The EWG considers two common ingredients in sunscreens, oxybenzone and retinyl palmitate (a form of vitamin A) to be hazardous. Oxybenzone — which is in a vast majority of sunscreens — can penetrate the skin and acts like a hormone in the body, Lunder says. More than 95 percent of people have measurable amounts of the chemical in their blood at any one time, and levels are higher during the summer months.

These conclusions, however, are based on limited animal studies. “A lot of the research on oxybenzones and retinol palmitate is done, first of all, with mice, and the studies have exposed the animal to a huge quantity of the chemical in a very small time,” Wang tells Yahoo Health. “That exposure element needs to be factored in.”

In fact, research conducted by Wang and colleagues found that you’d have to apply sunscreen constantly every day for more than 200 years to approximate the exposure to oxybenzone used in the animal studies.

In addition, Wang points out, “the binding capacity between oxybenzone and the estrogen receptor is 1,000 times weaker than estrogen.” 

Although many products contain oxybenzone, there are some that don’t. The EWG’s guide to sunscreens gives consumers a number of oxybenzone-free options for those who wish to avoid it.

Problem #3: Super-High SPFs

The EWG’s report also criticizes sunscreen manufacturers for using super-high SPF numbers — some higher than 100. Although on the surface that might not seem like a problem, these ultra-high SPFs create a false sense of security for consumers, Lunder says.

“The FDA itself has called the higher SPF products inherently misleading. Studies suggest that people put on less and they don’t reapply as often. And you may prevent a sunburn when you apply an SPF 100, but you’re not getting the same amount of UVA protection,” Lunder says. “The sun isn’t even up enough hours in the day to need an SPF 100, especially if you’re applying a thick coat and reapplying every two hours like you should.”

Countries including Japan and Europe cap SPF numbers at 50 for this reason. In Australia, sunscreens can only be labeled as high as 30 SPF.

Research also shows that sunscreens with an SPF higher than 30 don’t offer much additional protection, and that SPF testing for high-SPF sunscreens can be unreliable. And SPF 30 sunscreen, when applied properly, protects against 94 percent of UVB rays; at SPF 50, that number rises to 97 percent.

Problem #4: User Error

You’ve heard that you should reapply sunscreen every two hours, but you might not realize why. One of the most common UVA blockers used in sunscreens, avobenzone, breaks down in the sun. Only one hour of sun exposure decreases the effectiveness of avobenzone by 50 to 60 percent, research shows.

Manufacturers mix it with other chemicals to stabilize it, but it still eventually breaks down and loses its effectiveness over time. Plus, the FDA limits avobenzone in sunscreens to 3 percent.

Studies show that people only use half of the amount of sunscreen recommended, which diminishes its protection against UV rays.

Watch the video below to find out the right way to apply sunscreen — and how much to use:

“We’ve found that a lot of times people use sunscreen and they have this false sense of security that they’re completely protected from the sun,” says Dawn Holman, MPH, a behavioral scientist in the CDC’s Division of Cancer Prevention and Control. “They end up staying out in the sun longer than they would have otherwise, and their total UV exposure actually gets increased.” 

The bottom line: Use the EWG’s database to avoid ingredients that you personally find troublesome. And don’t forget about other forms of UV protection, such as avoiding the sun during peak hours (11 a.m. to 2 p.m.), and wearing long and, if possible, UV-protective clothing.

“Sunscreen provides the most protection when it’s paired with other forms of sun protection,” Holman says. “Just using sunscreen alone isn’t really enough.”

Clickpicks: Why the World’s Massive Porn Habit Isn’t a Big Problem (& More…)

ClickPicks is a weekly roundup of interesting, entertaining and occasionally absurd content from across the web, as chosen by members of the Highsnobiety editorial team.

Believing is Seeing

“When looking at this mesmerizing series of moving GIFs, it’s hard to believe that they were created by a man pronounced legally blind. Native American artist George Redhawk generated this stunning body of work with the use of visual aids, computer softwares, photo manipulation, and a desire to show the world as he knows it – through damaged eyes. See his full collection of more than a thousand images on his website and be left spellbound.” – Sophie Falcon (Editorial Intern) 

A Little Porn Won’t Hurt You… 

“While anxiety over the long-term effects of society’s increasingly heavy porn consumption is at an all-time high among the moral hypochondriacs of the world, there is actually precious little evidence to support the theory that whacking off twelve times a day makes you any less interested in real-world romance. In this level-headed look at the science behind sexy picks, Aeon argues mankind’s love of porn not only isn’t a problem, but actually has a lot of unacknowledged benefits for society. As if you needed an excuse…” AJ Gwilliam (Features Editor)

King of Casio 

“Although the Apple Watch has already been out for two months, its presence has yet to really been felt. Unremarkable digital watches, however, continue to dominate the market, albeit in a very retro, dorky way – and their undisputed king is Casio. The Japanese giant recently held a comprehensive retrospective at the former home of the company’s late co-founder (covered here by The Verge), offering an insight into their decades-old design language: from the ’70s all the way up to the present day. Looking back on these pieces it’s interesting to see what was considered innovative such a relatively recent time ago…” – Brock Cardiner (Managing Editor) 

It’s Tough on Tour

“Given that almost nobody except Jay Z makes money from selling records anymore, it comes as little surprise that musicians are pushing themselves further and further when it comes to the touring circuit. You might think it’s all sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll from the outside, but in actual fact it’s more like long drives, boring sound checks, hearing problems, poverty, psychiatric episodes with a bit of music on the side (or it was for me anyway). The Guardian shares the stories of a few musicians who have broken down whilst on the road, exposing the less-than-glamorous side of making it in the music industry.” – Alec Leach (Fashion Editor) 

 Chi-Town Chatter

“Having grown up in Chicago nearly my entire life, I’m always looking for new artists/record labels to support from the Windy City. Odd Couple’s “Chatterbox LP” from indie label Closed Sessions is a project that has been meticulously put together over two years and includes solo records, as well as collaborations with artists such as Allan Kingdom, Michael Christmas, Pell, Alex Wiley, Kweku Collins, WebsterX, Saba, The O’My’s, and others.” – Alec Banks (Contributing Editor)

Tried to upload this earlier but for some reason it wouldn’t go through (tumblr just couldn’t handle me 😎) so here is my second attempt at some self loving. Also this mirror is hella flattering (maybe its the leopard print dog bed…) And I still don’t know why but I won’t question it

Thermal and fleece time 😄
.
As someone who was born in 4 season country, it’s important for Kimmana to regularly go back to #Australia and especially experience winter season.
.
Main reason is because winter is a great time to build our body. With less sun during the day, we’re not meant to go out and work full power. But instead, from #Ayurvedic perspective #winter teaches us to turn ourselves inward, build and develop our internal world, before we expand and grow to move outward to the world.
.
That’s why many animal hibernate during winter, and people tend to gain weight during this season (it’s winter here in the southern hemisphere 😄).
.
Although at the beginning of winter is #vata predominant experience, as the weather change to cold, and it also drying (another vata quality, dryness).
.
In this photo, Kim was eating his pumpkin curry at his father’s house while they’re away skiing. House sitting for the next 2 weeks 😆

UNIT 33 - LENS BASED IMAGERY - ZUN LEE

Zun Lee is a street photographer who I am taking inspiration from. I have chosen these two particular images as I’m taking inspiration from them as I want to do some portraiture street photography. I like that they don’t seem to be planned portraits, but more random photos taken of random people on the street. I like the bold colours and that there’s nothing particularly special about these certain people or something that stands out, however I’m sure theres something about them that stood out to Lee which is why he chose these particular people to take images off. I like that it’s not a full body portrait, just of the face - this is something I’m probably going to incorporate into my photos. These images look like they’ve been taken on a digital camera, however I think i’ll take mine on film.
