I was born in a great year - 1983. The year "Videodrome" and "The Deadly Spawn" hit the theaters, as well as the year "Bill Cosby: Himself" graced the world with one of the greatest stand-up performances of all time.
My life has been saturated in pop culture, and steeped in an appreciation for knowledge and the arts.
I listen to music from all over the world - from nearly every genre, and every decade. I have a true love affair with film (especially "Old Hollywood", grindhouse, and 80's slasher flicks), as well as classic and contemporary animation.
I've been playing video games since I could hold a controller. I love classic NES, SNES, and Sega games, and I've finally made the venue into the world of actually playing games on my computer (I never said I was on top of the trends). I enjoy first-person shooters, puzzle games, and anything that has zombies in it.
I adore interior design, and have a special fondness for Victorian, 50's, and 80's decor. Despite my love of color, I have a strange tendency to decorate my surroundings in only black, white, and red. I am particularly drawn to checkered patterns. I know not why.
I adore jewelry, but absolutely detest diamonds and other "precious" gems. I am terribly fond of "natural" and "semi-precious" stones, and I have an ongoing torrid love affair with faceted opals.
I enjoy painting, sculpting with polymer clay, jewelry making and beadwork, writing, sewing, dancing, working with Photoshop, bright nail polishes, and riding an adorable, old-fashioned Huffy Cranbrook bike named "Rosemary".
You'll find I mostly blog horror, ponies, other cartoons, cute things, weird things, and basically anything that gives me a chuckle.
you’re not helping out for woman’s rights or anything
YOU’RE JUST MAKING YOURSELF LOOK NASTY
Women have been socialized to believe that they must remove hair for a number of reasons, primarily the following:
hair is historically and Biblically associated with power; we as a patriarchal culture are obsessed with keeping hair on men (facial hair, Hair Club for Men, hair plugs, whatever) and keeping it off women. You say hair on women is nasty; why is it only hair on women? Women and men have the same pubic hair. We all grow it out of our follicles for the same reason. Why is it only gross on women?
women’s bodies have been considered the property of men since the dawn of time, and therefore we have been held to a standard of beauty and attractiveness that is not determined by us but is instead determined by something called the male gaze, which is erases all sexualities and genders other than cisgender heterosexual men and assumes that women are performing for it.
childlike women are considered less “threatening” and more “feminine” because they are naive, quiet, and rely on ~*adult men*~ to take care of them.
there is a fallacy about pubic hair that it is dirty. It is not dirty. In fact, it’s there to keep your genitals cleaner. Pubic hair and armpit hair are also there to spread your pheromones around and make it easier for you to attract a mate.
all mammals have hair. We’re mammals.
No one else’s body is your business. Ever. You want to shave? Go ahead! That’s totally your prerogative and if you’re more comfortable shaving, feel free. But given that pubic hair isn’t innately dirty, there’s no reason for anyone to remove it if they don’t want to.
You’re not sending out some edgy, hardcore message here. You’re just reinforcing what our culture wants you to reinforce. Before you pick up that razor again, think about why you want to shave. Is it just because our culture told you to? Why’d they tell you to? What’s the point?
Do what makes you comfortable and what makes you happy, and let others do the same.
