Hashtags pró-celulite bombam em campanha por aceitação do corpo feminino

Hashtags pró-celulite bombam em campanha por aceitação do corpo feminino

A história começou com uma atriz canadense chamada Kenzie Brenna, autodenominada uma “ativista do corpo”. Pois é, ela decidiu começar uma maratona de sábados publicando fotos de suas celulites. E aí lançou a hashtag #cellulitesaturday, que bombou rapidinho.

Yaassssssssss kweens. You know what day it is! 👑 👸 🎉 Do I love this part of my body? No, absolutely not. No matter how many times I talk about it, no matter how many people support me, its engrained in me to understand that "if you have cellulite, that part of your body is not good looking." And some people will read this and nod their head. I get it. But I also recognize that this is from social conditioning. IF YOU THINK for some reason that we are born with a natural distaste for certain body types then you are wrong. Let me give you this example: (This example slays btw) 🙏✨ If cellulite wasn't attractive because its inherently in our DNA, then we wouldn't also shame women for having body hair. Makes sense right? Body hair grows on us and yet we shave it off because smooth, white, young looking skin is more desirable than the other. But wait! It's in our primitive mind to look for mates who can survive, so why do we instinctively think that body hair on a woman is unattractive? Considering body hair is developed by biological evolution. BECAUSE WE HAVE BEEN RAISED TO THINK THAT. This is called cultural programming. This has nothing to do with what our cavemen minds think is attractive. And if you've been following my youtube videos I have spoke that our psychology cannot exist without the influence of our culture or the sub cultures around you. That would be called living in a "cultural vacuum" and it doesn't exist. If you recognize this, it's much easier to step out of your body and understand it from a sociological perspective. You can learn so so much about yourself once you realize how our minds and bodies work!! 🙆💕🙆💕🙆 I am no exception to this, cellulite monster inside of me still reigns her ugly head sometimes, but I acknowledge that this is social conditioning and I will not bow down to it. I will try to love myself. Over and over again.❤️ No matter how uncomfortable it makes me, no matter how hard, not matter what anyone says: I am on a journey for self love and I WILL NOT STOP. 🙅🙌🚫 #cellulitesaturday #thisbody #embracethesquish Also lovelies! Pls actually tag me in your pics! If you just @ me, it gets lost. Sowwie 💕💕💕💕💕

A intenção dos posts de Kenzie é mostrar que o importante é aceitar seu corpo e viver bem com ele. Ela lembra que o conceito de que celulites são feias e devem ser escondidas foi culturalmente implantado na sociedade e precisa ser quebrado. Muitas mulheres seguiram o caminho da atriz e também mostraram suas celulites e outras supostas imperfeições.

I was going to save this for #CelluliteSaturday but it's #TransformationTuesday today, so we'll go with that. • My body isn't perfect, and it certainly doesn't look exactly like all of my flexed and angled pictures on here. I feel it's okay to use angles and flex to show our good parts/sides of us, but it's also okay to show the "not-so-okay" parts that we think are "not-so-okay." I have spider veins in my legs, cellulite, and also stretch marks. I have stretch marks on my chest, butt, as well as on my "love handles" (I don't really have hips honestly lol so I think.) • I also honestly don't give a single fuck what anyone thinks about these pictures, this post, or of myself for sharing this. I love how so many girls and overall people are coming out more now and sharing the raw pictures of themselves not flexing and with cellulite/stretch marks/spider veins, food babies, whatever it is. It really takes a lot for someone to share photos like that with one person, and a bunch of people you know, let alone the whole social media world. • I stopped counting macros and tracking my food because I felt like I was somewhat starving myself in a way, and I don't want to feel like that. I want to eat what I want, when I want, and whatever portion of it that I want. I want to eat a lot of food and grow my muscles/body in the process. I started looking into personal training last night, and I'm going to begin researching and studying. I'd like to take the test for a CPT a little after the new year. If anybody has any great websites they trust, any sources, please share them with me! I'd greatly appreciate it. 💙 • I'm not going to worry or focus on losing weight anymore, it's not the healthy way for me to do things right now. I've talked about before how I'd love to get to 130 or under, but that's only a number. My self-worth shouldn't be and isn't based on the number of my body weight on a scale. I want to grow rounder, bigger glutes, and also tone my upper body more. If that makes me more bulky then whatever so be it. My fitness journey is taking me in a different direction and I'm going to embrace it. Happy Tuesday everyone!! 💪🏼💕 #bodypositive #cellulite #spiderveins

Mais do que as fotos, o que fica claro na maioria das postagens é que as autoras sentem a necessidade de desabafar sobre essa espécie de "tabu" sobre a celulite.

A hashtag usa a celulite como "gancho", mas várias postagens citam outros tipos de supostas imperfeições no corpo, como excesso de peso, cicatrizes, estrias e flacidez. Assim como a celulite, são traços bastante comuns em corpos femininos, e a campanha pela aceitação engloba tudo isso.

Em uma de suas postagens mais famosas, Kenzie repetiu uma pose de Marilyn Monroe, onde é possível ver celulite da musa americana. Kenzie escreve que se Marilyn podia ter celulite, todo mundo também pode e que 90% das mulheres são assim. O post já soma mais de 13 mil curtidas.
