now this man is either dead or just old as hell but lord he was something else.
I wish i had the strength to not shave.
Most of the time I tell myself that I shave not for other people but rather for myself because l like how soft my skin feels. After years of fully believing this I’m beginning to doubt it.
I’ve gone a few weeks without shaving my legs in the winter time but I have never ever let my armpit hair grow out primarily because I’m worried that A MAN will see it then think that i’m gross and then see me as unattractive which will then invalidate me as a woman.
So do I shave for myself or do I shave for others?
Does the comfortableness I feel from shaving also come from the awareness that I am fitting into the image of a conventional woman and playing my part? I have no idea and I hate that I even have to take this into account because of America’s “beauty standards.”
I know that this seems minute and trivial but the fact that I have to question a mundane act like the desire of shaving reminds me of how brainwashed I feel.

apparently being “critical” and “analytical” as oppose to taking everything at face value means you’re a “bitch” and need to “calm down.” Who knew?!
