Cada vez es mayor el número de personas que se desapega de los estereotipos corporales y promueve el amor propio. Uno de estos casos es el de Melissa Gibson , quien inició una grandiosa tendencia en instagram que anima a las mujeres a bailar frente a la cámara sin esconder sus cuerpos.

#DontHateTheShake se llama la campaña viral que Melissa comenzó bailando “Shake It Out” de la banda Florence + The Machine en su cuenta de instagram. La grabación que compartió hace un poco más de un año, se viralizó rápidamente y todos los días se adhieren mujeres, sumando cerca de 2.800 publicaciones.

“No se trata de ampliar el estándar de belleza que tenemos actualmente para que luego los masifiquen los medios de comunicación, se trata de desmontar el estándar todos juntos”, detalla la joven de 27 años en entrevista con el sitio Bustle.

“Somos seres naturales y fuimos creados para tener un aspecto diferente el uno del otro”, dice la chica oriunda de Louisville (EEUU) que tiene más de 160 mil seguidores en su red social fotográfica.

En tanto, a la campaña se han unido todo tipo de mujeres, incluso algunas embarazadas que no han dudado en mostrar los cambios en su apariencia de forma pública. “Estoy muy feliz”, reconoce la creadora de la idea y asegura que todo este proceso ha sido “muy inspirador”.

“Es maravilloso ver a muchas mujeres que admiro elegir ser parte de esto. Simplemente, es un movimiento de personas que van en contra de las normas de la sociedad, que se divierten, y que no tienen vergüenza en compartir”, dice.

“Cada video me hace sonreír… me doy cuenta que no estoy sola en esto”, señala.

Inclusive a la campaña viral se unió Megan Jayne Crabbe, una joven que se hizo popular en redes por superar la enfermedad de la anorexia. “Nunca olvides que tu cuerpo es digno de amor”, escribe Megan, quien comparte con felicidad su recuperación.

Lately there are a lot of people who come here and tell me that I'm doing it wrong. That there's nothing bad about dieting or wanting to lose weight. That I shouldn't be celebrating the body types I do. That I've gone 'too far' or that I'm promoting the wrong things. But here's the reality: there are so many spaces you can go to and be congratulated on weight loss. There are millions of diet plans, endless articles on getting the 'perfect' body, and countless images of the body type our culture teaches us we should all strive for. Those are the spaces I grew up around, and boy did I learn the lesson well. I learned how to lose weight, I learned how to hate my body, I learned that chasing thinness was the only way to be beautiful, and the only way to be happy. It's taken me a LONG time to unlearn those lessons. And I plan on showing as many people as I can that they can unlearn them too. Because honestly? We all deserve so much better than how we've been taught to see ourselves. The body positive community is our safe space. It's the one corner of the internet you can go to where no matter how you look, you're good enough. It won't pressure you into believing that you can only be happy once you're smaller. It won't shame you for how many calories you eat or how many miles you can run. It won't tell you that your value lies in whatever number comes up on the scale. It's the space that I needed so badly all those years ago. So you can think that I'm doing this wrong all you like, I'll keep going. I'll keep creating a safe space where that girl on the left can't be hurt anymore. And for all of you out there who've never been told before that you're good enough already. You will ALWAYS be good enough here. 💜💙💚🌈 ✨P.S. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO LOOK LIKE THE PICTURE ON THE LEFT FOR YOUR STRUGGLES TO BE VALID! EATING DISORDERS COME IN ALL SHAPES AND SIZES, THIS IS ONLY ONE REPRESENTATION. EDs ARE MENTAL ILLNESSES, NOT WEIGHTS. WHATEVER SIZE, YOU ARE WORTHY OF RECOGNITION AND SUPPORT. SENDING SO MUCH LOVE TO ALL MY ED WARRIORS ✨

Desde la grabación de Melissa, no sólo las usuarias de instagram se han unido a su campaña, sino que además ella se ha sentido libre de publicar cientos de fotografías de su cuerpo, usando bikinis, ropa interior o el vestuario “que se de le de la gana”, tal como señala.

A continuación revisa algunos de los videos de las jóvenes que se unieron a la campaña #DontHateTheShake.

#Repost with @repostapp. ・・・ I'm in my underwear on the internet! 😬 As a strength athlete, I follow lots of fierce, strong, jacked, women. They inspire me to no end with their hard work and dedication. However, even in the fitness arena where there is hopefully more of an emphasis on ability, there is still too much focus on outward appearances. And what that really boils down to is making sure that your body fits someone else's idea of what's ok. THAT'S NOT OKAY! The truth is – you cannot assume anything about someone's health or strength based on their size or body fat percentage. That's a fact. Unless you know about someone's blood pressure, bone density, poop habits, etc, you know very little about their health. If we wake up and take a breath – that is a good day and we should show our body some love. There is an amazing IG page called @donthatetheshake which shows fucking awesome women of all shapes and sizes celebrating their bodies in motion. It's the only body you have. Love it, move it, shake it, make it strong, make it capable, and whatever form it takes is yours. OWN IT!!! YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL ❤️ I think we should all celebrate our strong bodies by dancing in our underwear. Maybe not on IG. I'll take one for the team. 😉 My belly jiggles, and there's not a six pack in sight. But it's mine and it works, and for that, I love it. REMEMBER – "in a society that profits from your self doubt, loving yourself is an act of rebellion" #donthatetheshake #bearebel #fuckthestatusquo #bekind #pantsoffdanceoff #bearebel #fuckpants #closethegap @rebeccastuehler @kristy_link @stine413 @cassanderrr1218 @cdemiro211 @brazenathletics #rebeccatakesover So beautiful! Thanks for the submission!!! -Christi @sassychristiii

#selflovebootcamp – Day 🔟 DANCE – Goes well with @yourstruelymelly's (<~~~~ If you aren't following her, you should be. She's a beautiful inspiration with many wise words to share), #donthatetheshake ❤️ This was the hardest thing for me to do for so many reasons. The only times I dance are at the club, once or twice a year, under the influence. Usually I'm standing still, or moving just enough for a four second boomerang. Here I had enough time to wonder if my undies were falling, what the lumps under my undies were doing, what my back fat was talking about. I can tell from my mixed expressions that this was totally out of my comfort zone, GOOOD, I need that. I'm not going to fully discover myself by hiding under a blanket. If you aren't afraid, then you're doing something wrong. This is my most vulnerable post ever. I couldn't be happier to be participating in this challenge, thank you so much @omgkenzieee. ❤️ • • • • • #makeyourownsparkle #bodyloveproject #myhumps #mylovelyladylumps #dancechallenge #plussize #beautybeyondsize #youdontknowmystory #beinyourskin #bodylove #acceptance #bopo #bodypositive #fatbabe #takingupspace #radicalbodylove #honormycurves #celebratemysize #bebold #bigandblunt #effyourbeautystandards #iamsizesexy #theconfidencecorner #reclaimfat #pizzasisters4lyfe #ourlovelybodies #justmegorgeous #alternativecurves
