Update: poza a trecut de 2 milioane de vizualizari.

Sunteti familiarizati, probabil, cu Humans of New York de pe facebook: fotograful Brandon Stanton pozeaza oamenii interesanti si le adauga povestile interesante sau niste citate semnificative.

Humans of New York este un proiect drag noua, mai ales pentru ideea din spatele acestuia si faptul ca ne arata oameni de pe strazile New Yorkului care ne transmit ceva prin atitudinea si stilul pe care le au.

Una dintre particularitatile extrem de importante ale acestui blog este ca fiecare fotografie este insotita de un mic citat, ca urmare a colaborarii dintre fotograf si subiect.

Numai ca, atunci cand a cunoscut-o pe Stella situatia s-a schimbat. Brandon a pozat-o pe strada, apoi ea i-a povestit despre un selfie, recent uploadat pe tumblr. Asa ca, in loc sa publice fotografia "oficiala", a hotarat sa posteze pe facebook autoportretul Stellei, alaturi de mesajul ei, pe care l-am pastrat in engleza pentru autenticitate.

WARNING: Picture might be considered obscene because subject is not thin. And we all know that only skinny people can show their stomachs and celebrate themselves. Well I’m not going to stand for that. This is my body. Not yours. MINE. Meaning the choices I make about it, are none of your fucking business. Meaning my size, IS NONE OF YOUR FUCKING BUSINESS.

If my big belly and fat arms and stretch marks and thick thighs offend you, then that’s okay. I’m not going to hide my body and my being to benefit your delicate sensitivities.

This picture is for the strange man at my nanny’s church who told me my belly was too big when I was five.

This picture is for my horseback ridin
g trainer telling me I was too fat when I was nine.

This picture is for the girl from summer camp who told me I’d be really pretty if I just lost a few pounds

This picture is for all the fucking stupid advertising agents who are selling us cream to get rid of our stretch marks, a perfectly normal thing most people have (I got mine during puberty)

This picture is for the boy at the party who told me I looked like a beached whale.

This picture is for Emily from middle school, who bullied me incessantly, made mocking videos about me, sent me nasty emails, and called me “lard”. She made me feel like I didn’t deserve to exist. Just because I happened to be bigger than her. I was 12. And she continued to bully me via social media into high school.

MOST OF ALL, this picture is for me. For the girl who hated her body so much she took extreme measures to try to change it. Who cried for hours over the fact she would never be thin. Who was teased and tormented and hurt just for being who she was.

I’m so over that.
