Description

“To build a world that works for everyone, we must first make the radical decision to love every facet of ourselves.... ‘The body is not an apology’ is the mantra we should all embrace.” (Kimberlé Crenshaw, legal scholar and founder and executive director, African American Policy Forum)

Humans are a varied and divergent bunch with all manner of beliefs, morals, and bodies. Systems of oppression thrive off our inability to make peace with difference and injure the relationship we have with our own bodies.

The Body Is Not an Apology offers radical self-love as the balm to heal the wounds inflicted by these violent systems. World-renowned activist and poet Sonya Renee Taylor invites us to reconnect with the radical origins of our minds and bodies and celebrate our collective, enduring strength. As we awaken to our own indoctrinated body shame, we feel inspired to awaken others and to interrupt the systems that perpetuate body shame and oppression against all bodies. When we act from this truth on a global scale, we usher in the transformative opportunity of radical self-love, which is the opportunity for a more just, equitable, and compassionate world - for us all.

This second edition includes stories from Taylor’s travels around the world combating body terrorism and shines a light on the path toward liberation guided by love. In a brand new final chapter, she offers specific tools, actions, and resources for confronting racism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, and transphobia. And she provides a case study showing how radical self-love not only dismantles shame and self-loathing in us but has the power to dismantle entire systems of injustice. Together with the accompanying workbook, Your Body Is Not an Apology, Taylor brings the practice of radical self-love to life.

If you read any book this year it should be this!

This book makes explicit everything I desire to embody. The language is somehow down to earth, poetic and educated. This book explains how radical self love can change the world...I hope to share this book with everyone I know. I will re-read to remind myself of the messages.

Kind, Compassionate and Revolutionary.

This book is exactly what the world needs right now. It empowered me to reflect on the ways my own body shame has been harming not only me, but those around me, and equipped me with tools to dismantle the thought processes that perpetuate that shame. The author does an amazing job with the performance - listening felt like a late night sipping wine with a close friend and speaking truth. Highly recommend.

A Manifesto for Every Body

If you have a body, then this book is for you. Not only is the message of radical self love needed, but it is probably the only thing that could bring our species to the new consciousness needed to experience true liberation. This author lovingly tugs on the single thread from which most if not all "isms" emerge - that of body terrorism and the unchallenged default supremacy of some bodies over others. This book is about the human experience of life on this planet and provides a way for us to truly let the peace and liberation we so crave emanate the only way it can - from within each of us. Thank you Sonya Renee Taylor for this updated gift to humanity.

OUTSTANDING!

Sonya Renee Taylor's words are uplifting, empowering and a call to action to bear witness and stand with others to stop the trend of body shaming that's such an insidious poison throughout our culture.

I'm thankful that the author has chosen to read their own work, as the passion of the prose might have been lost otherwise.

Unapologetic and learning to love myself and others.

Should be required reading/listening

This book challenged my beliefs about myself, my body, others, and the world in general. I’m a fat and moderately disabled white woman; Taylor both gave me permission to be gentler with myself re: internalized ableism and sizeism, and also encouraged me to use my privileges to speak out against body terrorism. There is so much information on every page that you may need to listen/read more than once to learn it all. I certainly will.

YES YES YES

This book has changed me in such profound ways I barely have the words. I have already pre-ordered the workbook and am excitedly awaiting arrival. For anyone who has dealt with the scourge of body terrorism, body shame, and has lost their sense of radical self love, read this book. I cried in revelation throughout every chapter. Wonderful wonderful wonderful.

Mothers and Fathers and everyBODY should read!

Amazing and revolutionary and right to the heart. I recommend this book for parents and teachers who guide children to feel natural in their bodies and keep the radical self love that Sonya says we had when we were babies. There’s still a lot for me to process from this book. I want to be a part of a community of people who work with these concepts. I want to be a part of a community who will help more people be respected and recognize for our different beautiful qualities in all shades, abilities, sizes and sexual choices and identity. Read it! The more the better. Thank you Sonya❣️

Important And Yet Sadly Hurtful.

Ms. Taylor at times speaks such beautiful hope and the truth of our individual beauty . Unfortunately at other times this book doesn’t seem to recognize it’s own thumping down of anyone who doesn’t agree with the political opinions of the author.
If this book were truly about love of self and others, would we not strive to radically love OTHERS ?! Even those with whom we would not choose to grow friendship? The “all welcome “ flag flies here, with the small print asterisk *unless you dare to be other than...

As the mom of a child who is not neuro-typical this book hit me so hard for all of the ways we've apologized and contorted and carried shame. #FREEDOM

Perspective changing

I was fascinated by the stunning cover of this book on the shelf in Barnes and Noble, and I wanted to know more of the audacious confidence. I ordered it on Audible. The author challenged what our culture says about bodies, and she doesn't stop with the superficial. The deeply embedded defaults of body size, race, physical abilities, gender and sex are all disrupted by this concept of self-love. I think its a great book to read and recommend for anyone, especially anyone who is aware of body shame - and after this book, may view themselves in a more loving and compassionate context. This compassionate view to applies to oneself and others.

Fresh, compassionate truth

I love this book. I’m so blown away by the author’s ability to inform, question, reflect, challenge, change, and adjust harmful “normal” narratives that are injected into every aspect of life. As soon as I finished, I wanted to start the audiobook over from the beginning because the wisdom and compassion imparted throughout each chapter gave me so much hope and outlook. Highly recommend.

Wasted time and money

The catchy title is all this book has going for it. While the author is well spoken and somewhat entertaining, her extreme left political views are so much a part of the book that nothing else comes through. Everyone has a right to think/believe as they wish but a self help book such as this could go so much further in its’ purpose without the constant social justice warrior mentality. Social justice is good and worthy of attention but it is overemphasized in the extreme by this author. Her talking points get lost in all the political rhetoric.

Life Changing

Devoured TWICE! Sonya is an artist in bringing to light why radical self love is the only way back to self, not only for the self, but for the world at large. This is important work.
