Redação Hypeness Acreditamos no poder da INSPIRAÇÃO. Uma boa fotografia, uma grande história, uma mega iniciativa ou mesmo uma pequena invenção. Todas elas podem transformar o seu jeito de enxergar o mundo.

O Instagram pegou fogo de novo quando removeu a foto de uma mulher com o corpo fora dos parâmetros considerados pela mídia conservadora. Mas ela não deixou barato! Lutou para que essa injustiça fosse justificada – e conseguiu. 

Aarti Olivia Dubey, uma indiana de Singapura, é uma blogueira pluz size que teve sua foto com mais duas amigas de biquini, sem maquiagem em sua conta com mais de 16 mil seguidores antes de uma sessão de fotografia. Ela foi notificada pela rede social de que sua imagem havia sido removida por “violar as diretrizes da comunidade”.

Take a good look at us three. Do you know what we have in common? The belief that Any Body deserves to look good in what they wear. Be it a swimsuit, a pair of jeans, a dress, lingerie, a crop top. We have seen and heard the shaming directed towards us. We have also seen plus size role models in the West – be it bloggers, models, magazines or advocates – teach us that the world will judge you no matter what and that does not mean you go into hiding. While shooting for this, I realised how I hadn't been around other plus size friends in swimwear and This made me reflect on how important it is to stay visible despite the hate that might come your way. Because while ppl might shame you, there will be people who look upon you with respect for Who You Are. Follow more body positive people online. Screen who follows you and who you choose to be inspired by or you can relate to. Surround yourself with that and you will see that: 1) you're definitely not alone in this and 2) you are not supposed to be at war with yourself all the time. And if few celebrate your personal triumphs, it is okay to feel sad but remember that That is not something you have control of. Take charge of what you Can control – your sense of self, your self respect and willingness to view the world with different perspectives. #plussize #southasian #igsg #fatshion #nobodyshame #losehatenotweight #fuckfatphobia #pizzasisters4lyfe #celebratemysize #bodypositive

Após duas semanas sem resposta, pedindo para os seus seguidores repostarem a foto em questão, Aarti disse que o Instagram republicou a imagem – e se desculpou. Eles enviaram um e-mail dizendo que houve um engano e que a foto foi apagada acidentalmente. 

Dear @instagram this is a little too late after I had to deal with all the bloody trolls and haters last week. It's almost TWO weeks. So I accept your apology Instagram but it does not change a thing. You have placed the image back but at what cost? Please remember that if this ever happens again, I assure you it will be a battle cry I will announce because You are answerable to ALL of my plus size friends for removing their images or accounts on Instagram or Facebook. Check your latent fatphobia. Check your guidelines and policies. Take better care of the people who use your services as a means of staying connected to oceans of people who just want to exist as people. Fat, brown, lgbt, disabled and many other intersections deserve RESPECT and not to be trolled by anonymous private accounts with no life. Sincerely, a fat brown woman. #plussize #woc #intersectionalfeminism #fatacceptance #psblogger #bodypositive #nobodyshame #losehatenotweight #fuckfatphobia #igsg #southasian #effyourbeautystandards

Mas a blogueira acredita que a resposta foi um tanto quanto tardia, pois aconteceu só depois que ela teve que lidar com todos os haters e mensagens preconceituosas sobre seu corpo. Mas no final ela julga o resultado como positivo, pois, ainda assim, ela manteve sua autoestima e ativismo.

This is my fav shot the hubster took. It's not on the blog because it looked out of place but I love it. This shoot was not easy. Wearing this two piece and hearing the derogatory comments in my head made it harder. I won't lie, the past few weeks took quite a chunk of my good vibes and energy. I spent so much time deleting comments, blocking people and responding to emails..I didn't sleep or eat much. But this was important to do. It is me reclaiming the jubilation and pride I should have felt when I shared the article with you. This is me, existing as a fat Indian girl in a stereotypically skinny Asian world. And oh god cmon, I am more than my physical vessel. I am a writer, a daughter and wife, an animal lover and trained psychotherapist, a sister, an animal lover and music aficionado. There are so many dimensions to each of us. There are so many life stories, loves and pet peeves. You won't see me invading someone else's social space pointing fingers at what's wrong with them. It's called respect. It's also called empathy. Something I don't see being practised as often. This is the last of the series of images for this swimsuit. I am so done with the whole Instagram hoopla. I don't want to revisit it, don't want to talk about it. I'm all talked out about it! Cheers to what lies ahead. May we have the strength to plough through adulting lol #plussize #psblogger #plussizeswimwear #fatshion #fashionblogger #igsg #southasian #celebratemysize #swimsuitsforall

“Eu aceito as suas desculpas, Instagram, mas isso não muda nada. Você colocou a imagem de novo a troco do quê? Vocês são responsáveis por todas as minhas amigas plus sizes que tiveram imagens removidas de suas contas do Instagram ou do Facebook. Reveja sua gordofobia, suas diretrizes e políticas. Tome mais cuidado com as pessoas que usam seus serviços para manterem-se conectadas além dos oceanos e existirem como pessoas”, escreveu.
