One year ago today. The biggest #pregosaurus of them all.

Allowing my self to look like I imagined a bohemic academic/artist should look.

Om en uge holder jeg et foredrag. Mit første foredrag nogensinde!!! Det tog alt mit mod at sige ja til det. Fordi stiller man sig op på en scene, så påstår man at man har noget vigtigt at sige. Og det er hårdt at have tillid til sig selv, når hver eneste gang man åbner munden og taler om sine hjertesager, bliver man anbefalet at stoppe. At stoppe med at prøve og lyde smart, for det er synd at skulle unfollow sådan en smuk kvinde som mig blot fordi hun ikke kan holde sin kæft. Og det gør ondt, for en mand vil næppe få sådan nogle bemærkninger. Men der findes heldigvis hundredvis af kvinder (og lidt mindre mænd) der støtter mig hver dag og de fik mig til at indse at jeg HAR altså en del vigtige ting at sige, nogen ingen anden end mig kan.
Det vil glæde mig at se dig i Verdenskulturcentret i København, den 26. september kl. 19:00. Det er helt vildt GRATIS at komme ind, men hvis du tilmelder dig eventet på Facebook (linket i min bio), så får jeg mere ro i sjælen. Er der nogen emner som du vil have optur af at blive taget op, så skriv gerne en kommentar om det ned under. 😍

Yesterday on my way to university Shosh didn't want to let me go for the first time. 👶🏼 She clung to my arm and wanted me to stay home so bad. Seing her crying face and still leave was really the most challenging thing in the world. Oh, the eternal dillema af a working mama. 💔😪 Outfit details are all tagged in the picture.

On rethinking the word “natural”.
For me, the worst compliment of all is “you are so natural” or “you’re a natural beauty”. Rarely is the lady receiving such complement in her actual true natural feminine form – unshaved, unshaped, unwashed, uncombed and unscented, roaming adjacent fields in search for food with a baby on her breast. Rather, a lady, who looks “naturally beautiful”, especially if she is over the age of 28, is one that mastered tricks of the trade of femininity and is in the habit of investing time and money in constant upkeep. Should she stop doing all these procedures – and actually become natural – only words thrown her way would be “disgusting”, “lazy”, “boring”, “masculine”. When I get the stamp of “natural beauty” on my picture, what I really get is a confirmation of the fact, that my looks comply to the current fashion of beauty. To the socially constructed, artificial standard. And since the eye of the onlooking man finds that beautiful, it just renders his likings to be natural. Because for him what he likes is natural, even if this everything has smokey eyes and acrylic nails. “A woman can be handsome, but she can only be beautiful in the eyes of the man who has established the norm”, as Daniella Caselli formulated it.

And lastly, a picture of my nude body shall exist not because of its naturality. Instead, because I insist on defining the conditions of its visibility.

I lørdags var Shoshana og jeg til en reception for min venindes @emiliemelgaardjacobsen long-awaited bog om Natbjørnen Tjugga 🐻🌕. Tusind gange tillykke med den sødeste bog med de smukkeste illustrationer. Der er virkelig en kunst i at ligge så meget føllelse i så få ord og lave så gennemtænkte tegninger på det nivå børn kan forstå og relatere til. Masser af ❤ og 👶🏼💤 herfra. 📸 af @jakobmmk

Stepping into Monday like

Det glæder mig at invitere alle mine følgere til en forfattermøde MED MIG her, den 26. september. Det er helt gratis at komme ind og det vil være første mulighed for mig at stå på en scene og tale om min rejse fra en kristen mor til snapchatter til feministisk forfatter og hvad jeg har lært undervejs. Jeg glæder mig at tale om de emner jeg finder udfordrende og komplekse for kvinder i dag, så som kropsbehåring og ligestilling i sit forhold. Link til eventet i min bio 👓

My autumn babe #🍁

My day in numbers: Turned 32 years old. Went to bed at 1 a.m. with sick Shoshi. Woke up, sick myself, at 4 a.m. to read at least 20% of what I was supposed to before university. Read about 1%. Asked God 5 times “how long am I to endure this suffering” whilst drinking my morning coffee. Ate 2 delicious pancakes for breakfast, made by @rolf__rolf, who forgot my birthday last year, and therefore insisted on going all in this year. Successfully pretended to be awake for 4 hours at university. Am about to eat 1 tasty big ass #prinsesstårta cake for dinner. Life is peachy.

✔First week on a new faculty in University - done
✔This weekend's reading - acquired ✔Legs - just how I like them: feminine and 🦔
