hirutism

for someone who has hirutism, i cannot explain how much it angers me when white girls complain about shaving when all they have is peach fuzz. MAYBE WHEN YOU HAVE TO THREAD HAIR THAT IS ON YOUR FACE, NECK, CHEST, PLUS ALL THE OTHER PARTS YOU NEED TO SHAVE ALL TOGEHTER, THEN YOU CAN COMPLAIN TO ME ABOUT SHAVING.

in the mean time sit the fuck down recognize your privilege of not looking like a gorilla.

Ethiopian Film ‘Difret’ Wins Best Feature Narrative Award At the Pan African Film & Arts Festival in Los Angeles.

First caught wind of this film from Ethiopian director Zeresenay Berhane Mehari when it screened at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in January. Not only did the film premiere there, it also won the World Cinematic Dramatic Audience Award. Although it was selected as the Ethiopian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 87th Academy Awards, it was not nominated.

Seen from the perspective of the film’s young female protagonist, Difret tells the story of Hirut, a 14-year-old girl abducted into marriage who, in an effort to escape, ends up killing her kidnapper and would-be husband. Following this incident, a trial ensues as the fate of Hirut hangs in the balance.

The feature debut of Ethiopian filmmaker Zeresenay Berhane Mehari, the film is based on a true story that occurred in 1996. Though the film centers around child marriage in Ethiopia, it also brings forth the issue of the vulnerability that young girls face in certain communities, and the urgent need for reform.

A Surprising Way to Treat Your PCOS-Related Acne

 

PCOS causes acne in many women and if you suffer from these painful breakouts, you are certainly not alone. Though hormonal influences can initiate skin problems, you may be surprised to find that your pillow case can really add insult to injury!

Pillow cases can be especially harmful if you’re a side sleeper, as your face is up against the material every night. Here are a few ways you can improve your skin by paying attention to your sleeping habits:

  1. Sleep on your back. It may be difficult at first, but getting into the habit will be worth it.
  2. Change your pillow case more often. Though we all would like to say that we wash our sheets once per week, the reality of a busy schedule is that they often do not get washed that frequently.
  3. Switch detergents. If changing your pillow case more regularly doesn’t seem to help, try a fragrance-free or extra sensitive detergent, as that may be what is irritating your skin.

Of course, changing your pillow case will not completely heal your acne, but it will help stop making the skin condition worse while giving other treatments a chance to work.

Women Against Non-Essential Grooming

Women Against Non-Essential Grooming

I recently came across an article about a new movement called WANG, Women Against Non-Essential Grooming. As a person who shaves to try to fit into the mold society has so nicely made for women I thought this sounds like an article for me.

I hate shaving. Anyone who knows me knows I’ll do anything to get away from shaving.
I have a lot of hair on my body – a lot – so shaving takes a significant…

I'm loving the warm, beautiful weather and all but..

when it gets warmer and everyone else wants to wear less, i become more insecure, cause of my hirutism. i wish it was easy to shave everything off. but this isn’t peach fuzz that we’re talking about. and i hate every bit of it. i hate how i have to put into 4 hrs of shaving and have to put in more effort cause the amount of body hair i have. and its hot, and i can’t hide under a jacket forever. and its like i’m in this battle of shaving and wearing short sleeves, or not and just wearing short sleeves or covering myself. being a Pakistani-Muslim, i’m not even allowed to wear a tank top in the house. and i’m always been so used to wearing jeans all summer long, cause i don’t have a choice, i have to cover myself. and walking around campus, seeing all these girls in shorts, dresses, and bikinis. i want to wear those things but   i can’t cause a) i’m too hairy b.) i can shave, but i have too much hair to shave off, its really bad. c) i’m not even allowed to show that much skin anyways.

and i’m so embarrassed about all of this as i’ve always been. and i think my only way out is laser hair removal surgery. cause that can only permanently take it all off. but i’m a broke ass college student. and this whole week, everyday after school, as i sit at the mall, i feel so insecure cause i can’t even enjoy warm weather in just jeans and some t-shirt.

She Did What !?

Sc States very own Hirut Kollech took the fight for her university to the next level. We are all aware with the subcommittee’s recent decision to suspend all operations at Sc State University . Well fellow students and alumni are not taking this one sitting down and have came up with multiple ideas to help save our university. Ideas such as student and Alumni rallies, recruitment trips and much more. But this creative and dedicated student decided to go above and beyond with her next save Sc State idea. Kollech took a trip to the big apple and attended the NBA All stars game that weekend. But the trip wasn’t all for fun. While at the event Kollech recruited celebrities to help show support for our troubled university. Among the celebrities were comedian Anthony Anderson and ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith who both attended HBCUs. These men were all down for the cause to save this HBCU and made that clear by taking pictures with Kollech and a sign reading “I support Sc State” and “save Sc State” . Talk about bulldog pride , Kollech not only showed her love and loyalty for her University but also her determination to not go down without a fight.
