I encounter so many people online who don't seem to understand what @suicidegirls actually is.
In the words of @missysuicide - the owner, founder, original boss lady and our lord and saviour - it is "a place where girls can express themselves, feel comfortable being uniquely themselves and being beautiful, and embrace their bodies. There was either the stick-thin body type or like the silicon-enhanced blonde Pamela Anderson type. I saw all these beautiful women around me, and none of them were reflected anywhere in society. I wanted to give them a place where they could shine, where they could be themselves, where they could be appreciated for their own beauty and uniqueness."
It's a body positive community that celebrates all kinds of beauty. "What some people think makes us strange, or weird, or fucked up, we think is what makes us beautiful."
Not only that, but SG's are more than "just models". They're smart, intelligent, creative, geeky, passionate. SG in itself is a feminist movement. There are groups on the site for discussing politics and feminism as well as music, movies, art, tattoos and more. It's a community. The official club night here in the UK, @sgdis_grace even has a Trump burlesque act; and the @sgblackheartburlesque show features geeky acts, stormtrooper helmets, Adventure Time dances and Star Trek acts.
SG's are passionate and care about the ethos and what SG stands for. They care about feminism, they care about politics, they care about injustice. If you don't like it, go somewhere else. If you want your models to be cookie cutter robots with no personality, no voice, no passions and fire; who just post pretty pictures of themselves and never show any real personality or discuss any of their opinions or important matters, then SG isn't for you.
If however you like to see women who stick their fingers up at that, who shout fuck you and will always be themselves and talk about what matters and what they care about, who refuse to fall in line, who refuse to submit to normal beauty standards, who choose to commit social suicide by not caring if they fit in; join us.
