I’m a Instagram Pariah


Downward facing dog Adho mukha savasana

Today my Instagram account got deleted because people kept reporting my pictures.I post clothes free yoga pictures on my Instagram account. Not as a way to get attention but as a way to show how beautiful and perfect the two go to together. I felt like my pictures was a book and I was telling this story which only the eyes could see.As I began to post more and more of these beautiful pictures.More of my pictures were taken down from Instagram, because of people reporting them. My friends kept giving me advice like make my page private, stop posting naked pictures or do both. But I couldn’t understand why should I stop doing something that is done only out of love and to also inspire others. There is that saying the “The beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and the way society is going is that what you wear and how much you spend is beauty.

Everyday I see people post pictures of homophobic, racist ,sexiest and much worse stuff everyday on Instagram and not one single picture gets reported. Has society become numb to this type of behavior? I honestly font know. All I know is that I post pictures that express my mind,body and soul for the world to see and yet somehow people have become offended. How can that be? I honestly do not have the answer. But I know that yesterday I posted a picture of me in a downward dog naked (pictured above) and this morning my account was deleted. I could have just said oh well and given up. But honestly it just gave me more motivation to keep posting and keep inspiring others. So I made two account one for the general public with clothes on and one private for only people who admire yoga and the human body. My friend Gina said today “as long as there are emails there will be more Instagram accounts

    It’s too bad that someone feels they need to report a picture of something so innocent. I bet whoever reported your pictures, have reported others too, so they become the self empowered ok instagram police!

    MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS PEOPLE, it’s a human body,everyone has one, GET OVER IT!

    Reblogged this on Look at Both Sides Now and commented:
    I like you persistence in letting the world know there is nothing wrong with the nude body.

      Sorry for the typo . . . Should have read: “I like youR persistence . . . “

    It saddens me that the human body is considered taboo. We all have one. Your pics are tasteful and beautiful.

  4. It’s Instagram’s loss, not yours.

    Try Yahoo’s photography site Flickr.com They delete accounts when people complain too, but there are ways to classify images as “restricted” etc, as well as private groups of like-minded people to limit who can see or complain about your photos.

    After my first Flickr account was deleted I debated a lot of people about it and now can have my cake and eat it too. There is even some child nudity in private groups (not pornographic), which are the most likely to get you deleted, but the battle continues.

    Great post, beautiful photos. Yoga should always be naked. You are right, keep posting. Beauty and goodness should always trump shallowness and fear.

    Why in this world some people can not just mind their own business? Stop policing others… If you do not like what you see, stop watching it, as simple as that! I hope someday, people grew up as a society that truly believes in personal freedom. And about those social media behaviors, a simple “I don’t like it” button would put certain algorythms that’ll block those things one may not like, on the same way now ads are send to one’s accounts based on what one “like”.

    1. Thank you for the comment the problem is the easiest way to deal with the sexual nudity is just to group all nudity into one including simple clothes free non sexual nudity.
