Fabulous Art Reminding Us Our Bodies Belong to Us

One of the best things about being back on Facebook is the art. My feed gets filled with it. And sometimes, like in this case, it leaves me screaming, “Yes! Fuck yes! THIS!”

Image is a drawing of a Black woman wearing a yellow top and wearing a blue skirt. She has a bird in her hand, with hearts flying up from it. Beside her is a set of arrows pointing from her head to her feet, with the words, "I own this." Beside her is a paragraph: My body is not a democracy. It is an empire and I am its dictator. You do not get a vote. There will be no coup d'etat. Rebel forces will not overthrow me. I am in charge of it FOREVER."
Delightful, empowering art by Teafly. Image used with permission.

This fabulous piece is by Teafly, and she’s got it for sale in her Etsy store. It comes in a variety of choices, including a group portrait. All of them are awesome! I haven’t decided which I want yet, but a version of this needs to be hanging on my wall.

Considering how women’s bodies have been considered public property by so many for so long, I’m thrilled to see art like this that demolishes that assumption with pizzazz.

Damn straight this body is an empire. I’m all too happy to remind those poor fools who forget that fact.
