what’s really amazing to me is that people are so afraid of body hair on women that even in a shaving commercial they won’t show a hairy leg. they demonstrate the razor by shaving a hairless leg. they show their product being completely useless instead of showing leg hair. it’s just crazy
It is 2014, Why are women and girls still shamed for having, body hair, fat and many other “flaws”? These are natural occurrences in the body! People need to be able to embrace their differences not be shamed to the point where they build up a wall of insecurities that will constantly hold them back.
I CAN STILL BE SEXY WITH HIRSUTISM
I CAN STILL BE CUTE WITH HIRSUTISM
I CAN STILL BE HOT WITH HIRSUTISM
I CAN STILL BE BEAUTIFUL WITH HIRSUTISM
REPEAT AFTER ME; HIRSUTISM DOES NOT DEFINE YOU.
How to handle the fact that your girlfriend/sister is human and has body hair.
currently on week three of not shaving my armpits, legs, and nether regions. It’s pretty nice.
I toyed around with the idea of making a vow not to shave for a year.
Might still do it. It’s just nice to not have to think about it or like, worry about shaving because a guy might not find it attractive. I kinda of just don’t care what other people find attractive right now.
I really want to spend more time thinking about myself and what makes me happy and comfortable, and right now, it’s my super cute armpit hair and friendly leg hairs.
But I can’t decide if I really wanna go through the hassle.
My leg hair keeps me warm haha. bored as hell.
Ommmggg that’s so sweet! Sure, I don’t wax my arms anymore so I don’t really deal with ingrowns there but I do get really bad ingrown hairs on my bikini line and legs esp below the knee. With ingrown hairs I always think it’s better to try and prevent them first than just try to remove them bc in my experience removal is a lot more painful and can sometimes leave scabs whereas just trying to prevent them is a lot easier. I recommend dry brushing or using a scrub ALWAYS before waxing or epilating, you can do it after as well once the skin is less sensitive, but this works so well for ingrown hairs. I use the Ocean Salt scrub from Lush, it’s a little pricey for a body scrub but the salt really loosens all the ingrowns, Tendskin is also a really great product but works best for shaving imo. Also putting baby powder on your skin before waxing etc helps the hairs come out a lot easier. I’d say be patient with ingrowns, usually I get too annoyed by them and try to dig them out with a tweezer which is not a good idea bc as I said before it can make your skin scabby and bleed. Ultimately ingrown hairs can be a good sign bc it shows that the hair finer (thus why it’s harder for it try break through the skin). Anyway I hope this helps a bit, I know how infuriating it is when you spend the time/effort to remove hair and it’s just so stubborn and doesn’t look the way you want! x
This is one of the most accurate things I have ever seen.
There are two core effects in play here:
First, there’s microaggression. Basically, this is the fact that minor shit adds up to major shit if you’re constantly experiencing it from pretty much everyone around you.
Second, there’s the fact that something which seems minor to someone in a position of privilege is often very much not minor from the perspective of the actual victim.
“Tumblr overreaction” is a function of people having a reasonably safe space to sincerely vent from the net result of all the shit they’re experiencing in their lives, not people who “want to be offended by everything”.
Anyone ever consider that the second graph is in fact accurate, but not because “lol sjws get mad at everything” but instead because EVERYTHING REALLY IS THAT APPALLING?
i feel like “tumblr” is codeword for “marginalized people speaking openly about oppression” so the dichotomy is “normal people” and “oppressed people who don’t know their place” so literally if you agree with the original post i have nothing to say to you except you’re garbage
