In addition to being thin, women (particularly in the west) are expected to maintain the illusion of hairlessness. Any sign that puberty might have bestowed upon us a spray of fuzz beneath our arms or a thatch of fur between our legs has to be eliminated immediately. Waxing, shaving, plucking, electrolysis - women have to fork out precious financial resources just to achieve what is then laughably passed off as a ‘natural’ state. For men and women similarly invested in maintaining patriarchal notions of gender performance, hair on women seems to be oddly terrifying.

I want to be surprised at the rise of neo-nazi’s in america, but I honestly can’t be. Fascism has been a part of American culture essentially since American culture developed. Nazi Germany stole pretty much all their ideas from the USA, and we supported them. Ford, Coca-Cola, Bayer, Standard Oil, Kodak, Random House Publishing, and Chase Bank all supported the third reich. 
America has also refined the practice of eugenics- We have forcefully sterilized those who are less desirable, whether in our hospitals or in our prisons. The most recent mass eugenics in America that I’m aware of, was discovered in 2012, when a women’s prison in California forcefully sterilized the women being held there.
Is this common knowledge? Unfortunately no.
America has and will continue to be a fascist stronghold, no matter how important we claim “freedom” to be, the freedom one perceives as their own will always be more important than someone elses freedom.
Going to politics, asking for more checks and balances will not fix this. We must change completely as a society. We must work together to support one another, we must destroy the tendrils of fascism the second they appear, and we must be critical of ourselves.
There is a long and arduous road ahead- but we cannot allow fascism to continue to grow.

Ford Sheds Light on First Mass-produced Carbon Fiber Wheels

For the all-new Shelby GT350R, the most track-ready road-going production Mustang ever, Ford dreamed of using the ultimate high-performance material for its unique wheels – carbon fiber. With a little help from Space Shuttle technology, Ford helped reinvent the wheel.

But while the automotive aftermarket and a low-volume supercar manufacturers have offered carbon fiber wheels, Ford and Australian supplier Carbon Revolution took on the challenge of crafting the first mass-produced, track-capable carbon fiber wheels as standard equipment for Shelby GT350R.
