So it’s my arms again after about a month or two for anon. I realized I didn’t explain in my last picture but I was talking to an anon arm hair since she was really unhappy about hers and asked me if it was a problem for me etc and I said I’ve been tryna find more confidence in growing out my arm hair and this way the progress I’d made. Like I don’t think arm hair is really a big deal at all especally on others but I still feel kind of embarrassed about not waxing mine. I’ve waxed it for such a long time and was also teased really badly about it especially by boys. Also since arms are like always on show I feel like it’s really obvious, particularly since a lot of my friends arm hair is finer than mine so I feel like it really stands out. If my arm hair stayed the way it was in the first picture when it had just started growing back in I wouldn’t mind as much but this picture is much more true to life, once it’s grown back in properly it’s pretty thick and dark. I’m really fighting with myself not to wax it particularly since I’ve been having a difficult time with confidence recently but I figured if I posted about it on here it would help me confront it since I’m drawing attention right to the part that makes me uncomfortable. Also I know a lot of you guys know where I’m coming from too. Hairy arms unite!

My Body, My Hair

it is officially 2 years since i stopped shaving!!! and it is definitely one of the best things i have ever done for myself in terms of feeling better about myself/my body and caring less about what other people think. i’ve had mostly positive reactions aside from my family/when i went out in summer and got a lot of weird looks/laughs from gross guys but it’s a good way of detecting who is cool and who is not. sometimes i feel like a hypocrite because i don’t shave but i still wear make-up/adhere to patriarchal standards of beauty in pretty much all other aspects of my appearance but w/e, it’s one small step and it makes me feel foxy so yolo, etc.

Cheeky picture, I know. I might delete it soon because woah Mindy.
Opening Night is Friday and I have to shave my armpits for my show now. 
Say goodbye to these!
I cannot wait to grow them out again!

Sparks of Freedom
***
Human potential is pressing,
Percolating possibility,
Pulsing, stretching, thrusting
Bursting at the seams
Our branches reaching upward
To cascading sunlight beams
Swept up in the wake of brilliance
Splintering shards into the infinite
Freedom true sparks utterly magnificent
Breathing deep the solar waves
Lungs infused with fractalized rays
Absorbed within every layer of flesh
Celestial invocation, a unifying caress
Drinking now the sunlight bright,
Ritual incites from day to night
Boot stomping chaos magic recites
Rising now to cathartic heights
As fire lights burst vibrantly bright
Splashing the blaze across the skies
To meet with skin and star splattered eyes
Exhilaration sings, new beginnings begin
Love expands through awakening hands
As time’s sand dissolves into this sacred land
While inner light explodes forth into sight

One Woman Will Change Your Thoughts On Body Hair Forever

sugaryumyum:

Harnaam was just 11 years old when the beard started appearing and she spent her teenage years desperately trying to remove it. She would try to remove it by waxing twice a week.

The primary school teaching assistant endured vile abuse at school and would be stared at in the street.  She became so self conscious she refused to leave her house, except to go to lessons. At her lowest point she began self harming and even considered taking her own life.

 But at the age of 16, she found the courage to accept her facial hair after being baptised as a Sikh.  The religion dictates that the body should be left in its natural state and body hair must be left to grow.

Harnaam was determined to show that she was beautiful no matter what she looked like.
