As discussed earlier in class, the Instagram community guidelines are bizarre in the sense that they prioritize some images over others. There is no mention of violence, for example, but they would immediately censor sexual content. However, body parts can be shown in certain context like educational, marketing, or if it is beneficial for the community.
This last point made me think about the #loveyourlines Instagram page. The account has more than 106K followers and is a true inspiration for women all over the world who lives with stretch marks. When I think about the accounts where breastfeeding or even breast cancer survivors images gets shut down, I think about this page. The photos can sometimes be very graphic, but it is in no way sexual. It is to show real women, real bodies and spread self-love to others.
How can Instagram even think of shutting down this page? It is not even an option. Photos are being sent from very different kinds of women, from all ages, but they all share this one thing, and I think it is what makes it special.
