"I do it for me"
Oh really? You know, I do wonder how likely it would have been for you to have begun shaving off natural body hair if you hadn’t been informed from day one that natural hair on women is “gross” and that this was the beauty standard to aspire to.
The “I do it for me” choice-y feminism thing is bogus and please dear everything, apply critical thinking as to why it is we do the things we do.
I really really really love this post because as a woman who does shave I’m all over this. I don’t shave because I want to. I shave because I’m afraid of social backlash. Point blank. I wish I was strong enough and bold enough to face the criticism, but I’m not. I applaud all women who don’t shave and I hope one day I can say fuck it and just not shave. I think though once we all stop fooling ourselves with the ‘I do it for me’ thing, maybe we can have a real change with this stigma…you don’t ‘do it for you’ you would have never ‘done it for you’ if generations hadn’t told you that shaving was the ‘appropriate’ thing to do.

The question was: who did I want to be?
sure I talk about movies all the time but if you ask me what my favorites are, I forget the name of every single movie I’ve ever seen.. I have never seen one in my entire life.
