At least my armpit hair is back to its former glory
In speech class today, I gave a speech on the fact that body hair should be socially acceptable on women.
Mid speaking, I rolled up my jeans and showed off my legs which I haven’t shaved for 6 months.
About 5 or 6 different kids proceeded to gasp loudly and inform me that I should shave and that no man would be okay with his wife having hairy legs.
A strange thing happened to me when they said these things. I normally get very small and secluded when insulted, but I didnt this time. I felt pride in my legs and I continued my speech.
Body hair is not unnatural. Body hair is not unhealthy. Body hair is not disgusting.
Im proud of my legs and I will only shave them when I personally feel like shaving them. I will not shave because someone asked me to. They are my legs and I will rock them.
Peace, love, and pits 🌱
sundresses get ‘em going

Body hair is normal and 100% okay. Anyone who tells you differently is wrong and also nasty.

I will not apologise for my body.
I will not apologise for what my body grows.
I will not apologise for what I do with my body.
I have hair, I have bumps, I have lumps.
I have wiggle and wobbles.
I am me.
That’s rad, you’re rad!
