Instagram Has Lifted Its Ban On The Word #Curvy

How Instagrammers are celebrating is pretty damn wonderful.

Following a heap of criticism for banning the word #curvy, Instagram has put the hashtag back online - and Instagrammers couldn't be more thrilled.

Originally, Instagram explained that it blocked the hashtag because some were using it to share "inappropriate content", or as the rest of us call it, nudity. "This wasn't curvy pornography, this was just irrelevant pornography," Nicky Jackson Colaco, Instagram's director of public policy, told The Washington Post.

Though Instagram explained that the ban had nothing to do with body shape or the word "curvy", social media users pointed out that #assholes, #bitch and #clitoris were still being used. It was also argued that the #curvy hashtag empowered women to post body-positive photos, and the social media site was asked to reinstate the term.

So they did. And now we're seeing beautiful women celebrate with Instagram pictures like these...

Thank you Instagram for bringing #curvy back online.
