Lately I have been really thinking about what it is to be a woman, what makes me a woman and how that has defined my personality and life.  I never really considered it because it was something I just was but with tumblr and gender politics etc… I have been giving it a lot more thought. So here are some of the things that have shaped my womanhood.  

Being acutely aware of my body and how others looked at it from a very young age

Dropping out of dance class at 14 because I didn’t want to wear the crop top costume because I was ashamed of my body

Being brought to weight watchers at 10 because I was a little chubby and being told my weight was connected to my worth

Quitting surfing because I only saw boys doing it and I felt like I didn’t belong

Getting my period and feeling deeply ashamed of it but not really knowing why

Developing D breasts at 13 and being really pissed when my mother made me start wearing bras

Countless catcalls and comments because I had D breasts, many from much much older men

Having my chest grabbed by guy friends like it was nothing

Hooking up with my guy friends because I thought that if they wanted me, they valued me.

Being pressured into sex at 15 by my very best friend and not realizing it was rape until I was in my late 20s.

Being molested at age 4 by an upstairs neighbor, growing up knowing it happened but always thinking it was my fault because I was taught that women were responsible for men’s behavior

Having a breakdown the first time I had to go to the gyno

Never speaking out or up in class because I was taught woman were supposed to be demure

Developing a drinking problem at 15 because I couldn’t face the things that had happened to me

Hating other woman, having immense jealousy against them, thinking I was better than other girls because I wasn’t into superficial things and everyone else must be, always putting myself down and comparing myself to other woman.

Being constantly bombarded with messages about how I am supposed to look, how if I don’t look that way I am worth less, how I need to spend lots of money on things to alter how I look to fit an ideal.

Not being taken as seriously in my job because I am a woman and one that has a younger face (so I’ve been told)

The fact that I don’t wear makeup except on rare occasions is apparently some sort of political statement

Hearing my father complain about the women he worked with, using stereotypes and not giving a shit how that affects his three daughters  

Marrying someone I knew wasn’t right for me because I was told marriage is my ultimate goal as a woman

Being 38 and still having people tell me I will change my mind about wanting kids, constantly feeling like there is something wrong with me because I don’t

Finally unlearning internalized misogyny, recognizing it, realizing how it shaped my relationships with other women and at last forming strong loving bonds of friendship with the women in my life.

There’s much more that shaped who I am as a person and my womanhood but these are the ones that stick out.  I know my experience is not the same as everyone’s but these things have shaped and defined me.  I am proud to be a woman now and it took me a very very long time to get to that place, but I thank goddess I did.

Fashion and He’ethraze

     Although their ancestors surfed comfortably in the nude, modern trolls will generally cover up when around other races. Loincloths (such as the Hawaiian malo) are worn by men and women alike and are considered the uniform for the sport. Brassieres are less common, and the torso is usually covered by trinkets, jewelry, shells, and flowers worn to elicit the favor of the loa. For this reason, costuming can reach levels of record gaudiness during formal competitions. When alone, a troll will find more comfort surfing bare with only one or two lucky trinkets on their person.

Alolan Porygon
Type: Ghost
Ability: Copy & Paste: Small chance of duplicating its held item after a battle (within limits - only works on items you can legitimately get multiples of so you can’t use it to get infinite master balls or whatever)
Location: Rare encounter found only by surfing on certain specific tiles along the coasts of certain islands

An early Porygon prototype made in the Kanto region to test an experimental version of the Pokemon transfer system, but something went wrong and it kind of… broke. Ownership of the subspecies was immediately banned throughout Kanto due to its unpredictable and dangerous nature, and it was thought to have gone extinct 20 years ago - until a small feral population turned up in Alola, possibly smuggled in from Kanto by trainers who illegally owned them…
