> # Welcome to r/BodyAcceptance!
> This is a place for body acceptance.
> We are often bombarded with the "ideal," and the vast majority of both women and men, do not measure up, regardless of their body.
> We all have a lack of perfection and we all deserve to feel good about ourselves and comfortable in our skin.
> We welcome bodies of all shapes, sizes, abilities, and disabilities. We are about accepting yourself right now, as you are.
> # Some hard and fast rules
> * Any abusive behavior towards any poster will not be tolerated.
> This includes a general rule of respect and civility.
> * No weight-shaming. This is not a weight loss or gain support group. No telling people that they need to change their body.
> No selfies or body pictures. Pictures and Videos are automatically filtered to prevent judgement based on looks. We will approve these post/comments on a case by case basis.* Feel free to msg the moderators.
> * No advocating dieting, no trash talking of bodies or negative comments about any bodies, and no telling anyone what they should eat or how they should exercise. These are personal decisions.
> (Important note: Discussions of eating patterns for overall health or recovery from disordered eating are allowed. Discussing or suggesting intentional weight gain or loss is not allowed here. There are a thousand other places on the Internet for that. This isn't one of them.)
> * No surveys, please.
> * Do not attempt to impersonate a moderator. This will result in immediate banning.
> * Posts violating these policies will be removed.
> * If you see anything that does not follow the rules listed above, please click the report button.
> * Any questions, comments, or suggestions regarding this subreddit may be directed to the moderators.
> * We use automoderator to reduce spam and trolling. Occasionally, it will remove a post that does adhere to the rules. If your post doesn't appear, message the mods for manual approval.
