My Body Is NSFW

Mar 12, 2017

12:30pm – 1:30pm CT

Kelsey Miller launched The Anti-Diet Project on Refinery29 in 2013. Today, the radical concept of body positivity has gone mainstream: the anti-retouching movement began, Gabifresh launched the #fatkini revolution, and Nicolette Mason is one of media's most recognized fashion influencers. But have we really made progress — or just headlines? Large bodies are still flagged as inappropriate on social media. These women still face threatening comments, censorship, harassment, and outright abuse online. Readers voice vitriolic "concern" about what they are "promoting." On the internet, plus-size bodies are still not safe for work. And the internet is where we live our lives.
