My choices do not invalidate your choices.

Seems that there’s tumblr drama today about hairiness or lack thereof.

The fundamental problem, to me, is people who see someone else’s decisions about their own body to be in judgement of other people’s opposite decisions.

In my house, we have three women. I choose to shave and wax. One of the others grows her pitfluff. The third is fair, and I don’t actually notice either way. You know who our decisions affect? Us individually, and our sexual partners who may express a preference one way or the other. I chose what I want to do with my body right now, and it’s not a judgement on anyone who chooses differently.

Yes, there are sanctimonious shitbags on the extreme sides of both arguments. And their arguments are heard the loudest because they are so weird. The ones who insist that removal of hair is enabling pedophilia or some shit. The ones that insist that hairy women are smelly germfarms. I’d like to think they’re a minority.

I think it’s the same mentality behind a lot of things. Some people who don’t like pot will aggressively point out the negatives of smoking. Some people who are monogamous will tell the non-monogamous that they’re going to get every STD and die leaving only their children of questionable paternity to mourn them.

This sort of reaction? It speaks to me of a lack of conviction in one’s own personal choices. If you were truly happy with your decisions, you wouldn’t give a shit about someone else’s.

Oh my god! LOOK at how fucking repulsive this is. They just grow all of their fur out like that? Don’t they realise how hideous they look? I mean, we as the superior race are SUPPOSE to be hairless so what the fuck do they think they are they doing? It’s just so gross and lazy. Having all of your hair out on display like that and shunning what society dictates you to do is just so unbecoming. Why isn’t someone taking responsibility for this? You’re not cute guys, you’re just gross. If fluffiness doesn’t belong under my arms, on my hoohoo or my legs then it certainly has no fucking place all over you guys. Just get with the program already, this isn’t france in the 1930’s.

Sound ridiculous? Yeah, then so do all of your belittling and undeveloped opinions on body hair and how supposedly “unnatural” it is on women. You do realise that human existence came well before the invention of media, celebrities and razors right? Saying that something the body grows and produces constantly is unnatural is an absolute fucking disgrace. The only thing you should get freaked out about your body growing is cancer. IT’S JUST A FILAMENTOUS BIOMATERIAL FOR FUCK’S SAKE. Stop being so weirded out by the beautiful and strange and wonderful human anatomy, stop putting limits on it. Just fucking embrace it. Modify and adjust yourself as you please, but don’t criticize others for their choices to do something that ACTUALLY isn’t weird at all. Srsly.
