Save In The Flesh - Appreciation Webform at BBC Three

magic-in-us:

Okay, guys, so we really really need your help with this!

It looks like We CAN save In The Flesh, but there’s a bit of work (really tiny) involved. Please help! So, below is a quick tutorial (in pictures, mind!) how to send your appreciation (or just support okay), for this incredible, smart, well-written, well-acted, full of love, compassion and hope show!

All you need to do is go to the BBC website and submit the appreciation webform. That’s it. Well, there are a few steps, but it’s worth it! Please do it! 

Here’s how:

1. Go to Contacting the BBC site and select the webform:

2. Select the Type of Contact: Appreciate. Because that’s what we do — we love the fuck out of INF show, so let’s say it like it is.

3. Topic - well, we know it was on TV, so you pick that bad boy (don’t forget to always press Continue button okay)

4. And for the Channel/Platform, we must choose BBC Three. You know why:

4. Here’s where you get more specific and start typing the name of your favorite show. Which is… Yes, you got it: IN THE FLESH. Go ahead, start typing it in and the site will pick it for you. Fun, right? (you do not need to specify the Transmission Date, it’s not like everyone watched it on the day of the premiere, duh):

5. You’re doing great. Really. Kudos to you. But wait, there’s a bit more. They will ask you for your name, email, some other information. It is ENTIRELY UP TO YOU and OPTIONAL, but it won’t hurt to put something more or less resembling some real name so BBC Three knows we are not trolling them, okay? Thank you. Again, up to you.

6. Last step, I swear. Tell the BBC Three why you appreciate the show. Pour your heart out, cry, yell, beg, but make sure to do so within 350 character limits. So, eloquence  emotional, heartfelt gibberish is the key. Submit it!

Voila - You saved In The Flesh! (we need 500K of you)

THANK YOU!

This isn’t related to the theme of the blog, but this is one of the most beautiful show i ever saw!! I recommend everyone to watch it and send a message to assure there will be a third season. Not only is the story gripping, but it shows characters with various mental illnesses (depressing, ptsd, suicide, etc) in such a realistic way and there’s gay/bisexual characters that are totally unstereotypical, it feels good for the soul c:

Ok so please excuse the craptastic quality of the photo, I had to take it with my iPad because my camera isn’t working but this lil thing is called an EpiStick (also called EpiCare) basically you lie it horizontally over whatever hair you want to remove and twist the knobs and it works kinda like threading bc the hairs get twisted up in the long silver coil which you may not be able to see that easily in this photo. I meant to write a post about it for so long and kept forgetting and then an anon sent me a message about it so thank you anon! I got mine off eBay for 99p so it’s really inexpensive and it works really well for forehead, cheek, chin etc hair. You can also use it on your upper lip but I have to admit that it hurts a lot more there than on the rest of your face, especially if you have quite a lot of upper lip hair like me. Idk if any of you have this too but my eyebrows tend to kinda grow ‘into’ my hairline if that makes sense, like I get a lot of hair around the sides of my face where my eyebrows are and this helps a lot bc it saves me from having to go to a salon just to get that bit threaded like I used to have to. Just bear in mind that on particularly thick hair it can cause a lil bit of bleeding/ breakouts but that tends to happen when you remove thick hair on your face anyway, just dose up on the aloe Vera gel and wipe the coil with a sanitising wipe or rubbing alcohol/surgical spirit. Anyway I’m not tryna sell you this or anything but I thought for people who want to remove any of their facial hair this might be a good option bc it’s inexpensive and imo works really well and saves having to go to the salon as often and isn’t as messy as wax or hair removal cream. Hope this helps the people who were asking xxx

Here’s my latest drawing, "Natural Girl" - I’ve had this idea for a while and I’m happy to have finally drawn it. I just wanted to make the point that body hair is as natural as the hair on our heads, and although it’s okay to find body hair unattractive, it is NOT okay to shame or shun people, or respond publicly with “eww” just because somebody doesn’t shave. I have so many strong feelings about this! I feel angry that it’s such a big deal when women don’t shave and that women are called unattractive, disgusting, etc when they have hairy underarms just because most of western society has been conditioned to believe that women are gross unless they’re as hairless as a prepubescent child. I don’t think hairy people are superior to people who shave, because shaving makes a lot of people feel better about their appearance and feeling good about yourself is so important, I just think people of all genders should have the right to leave their bodies in their natural state without being embarrassed or called out by thoughtless, unkind people. IT’S JUST HAIR.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you - to all of you magnificent people who inspire, move and guide me everyday. My perception of my and the bodies of other has evolved so much since I discovered this amazing community. I’d really like to make a post in which I share more but I’m not quite ready for that yet - soon. Oh, and I’d so love it if a few people would check out my blog :) 
Today, when I took off my top, the sunlight glistened in the little hairs on my stomach and I thought it was beautiful.

I think learning to say “She’s beautiful and I am also beautiful” is really important. So many times we just compare and contrast ourselves against other people but it doesn’t need to be like that.

Somebody shave my legs for me. Seriously, why give women body hair if they are only going to remove it?

I always feels slightly rebellious when I grow out my armpit hair, because for a while I am liberated from razor blades and comforted by my own fuzziness. Plus, FUCK BEAUTY STANDARDS.
