So I think it is time for me to shave…thank God I finally bought razors last night I might have gone to the gym yesterday and glued my arms to my side cause I totally had been putting it off! bahaha!
(and why am I telling you about this? I don’t know… hmmm)
Hey summer is over and I have no reason to shave! (other than to conform to a societal normal that I have no interest in following 24/7 right now!) No boyfriend, no boyfriend prospects = I don’t give a crap about shaving. Although I still feel weird and guilty in public especially when working out… It is rather funny how much culture and societal norms shape our lives. I can’t go out in public with hairy areas bared without experiencing a constant feeling of shame and embarrassment.
Did a little searching around and found this article: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2012/may/02/ladies-why-you-should-stop-shaving . While I commend her for her bravery in challenging this, I personally will never take it to this level.
I actually hate hair. I don’t shave as much as a lot of girls, but I still shave. I absolutely completely and totally cannot stand pubic hair (GROSS), and any other hair anywhere in my bathroom etc. It just grosses me out. So yes I don’t like shaving and feeling like I have to shave all the time. That doesn’t mean that I don’t want to shave ever. The whole shaving thing just reminded me of how our environment affects our thought processes and how we live our lives. There are plenty of women (probably the majority) who do not shave on this Earth. Free yourselves! :-p haha
