thoughts || There are a lot of things I have to juggle as a woman, wife & mama of five. One of them shouldn’t be this seemingly western obsession with having every hair shaved off my female body. IMO. As women, we’ve come so far. We fight for equality & demand equal pay. We shout body confidence & promote self love. We beg for “real” models & unretouched booties. We praise our bodies for carrying children & wear our stretch marks with pride. But when it comes to body hair, WHY is it still so taboo for women to wear the hair that was placed on their bodies by their creator to protect some of their most delicate areas?? Meanwhile, the male half of the adult world......yeeaahhh. I admit I still think about what someone may think if they notice my unshaved knee cap or peep the hair under my arm, but then...what’s the worst they could think?! Seriously. What. On the flip side, if shaving or waxing makes you feel confident & comfortable, then BY ALL MEANS do it. For special occasions I often prefer a smooth, shaved leg! But if you, like me, have been doing this continual archaic ritual of being sure not a hair is showing on your body from the time of puberty & never questioned WHYYYYY, then maybe it’s time we evaluate why this view is only socially acceptable way to live. 🧡 Personally, I’ve never felt more powerful, more honest, more myself than I am now, embracing the aging process with my whole body...one wrinkle, one dimple, one hair at a time. Jus sayin.
