I never used to let myself get photographed from behind. As someone who grew up terribly self conscious about her legs, I’d worry about what people would think if they saw my dimpled thighs, self equating my (very natural) cellulite with words like “gross” and “flaw” because this is...Read more
There is something especially disturbing about the call for women to engage in self-care as a means of preparation for service towards others. We don’t feel especially comfortable giving women permission to put themselves first, so instead we often see the call to self care punctuated with statements such as,...Read more
Last week, during a fitness photoshoot, I intimated to my photographer and my assistant that I was the “heaviest” I’d ever been outside of my pregnancy. I put heaviest in quotations because I don’t actually weigh myself, and I think it’s just a placeholder for a variety of descriptions identifying an...Read more
You know what’s gross? Racism is gross. Homophobia, xenophobia, sexism—gross. Oppression and discrimination are gross. Telling people what they should and shouldn’t do with their bodies? Gross.

“I’m a grown ass woman, and yet, there I was, trying to find a way to conceal my tampon as I headed to the restroom.” There we were at the gym, a group of women diverse in age and background, discussing our menstrual cycles. We also touched on anal...Read more
FEMINISM IS THE RADICAL NOTION THAT WOMEN ARE PEOPLE. And guess what? We can do pull-ups too! Imagine that. Feminism is the radical notion that we women can grow babies inside of us or choose not to do that very same thing because only we get to decide what’s...Read more
These three photos were taken within seconds of each other, while playing in the Aegean Sea at a beach on the island of Naxos. The only thing that’s changed here is the lighting and a slight change in my stance. In case the lighting on your screen or external...Read more
This is an intersection: A place for weirdos, witches, misfits, magic makers, and moon lovers. A place for those who seek to smash the patriarchy and vibrate at higher frequencies.
