livinthelifeofacat asked: I just want to share my story, both for myself, to be open with it in a safe environment and maybe someone else will feel like they're not alone. I have PCO-S and, as of right now, my biggest problem with it is all that body hair. I have hair on my face, everywhere, and it's just getting worse. Its getting worse up on my cheeks. It's getting worse everywhere. I got off Spironolactone, which made it increase a LOT. The hairs on my chests are multiplying and getting thicker. Same boat, anyone?
Yep I think a lot of us are in the same boat, I feel you so much about the hair on your cheeks, I have hair all over my cheeks and down the sides of my face and a lot of women, including myself, have hairs on their chest. I was actually really surprised because I thought I was the only one and they’re a real pain to get rid of because it’s such a sensitive area, but when I posted that picture of my stomach I got a lot of women telling me they also had hair on their chests and stomachs so it’s definitely a way more common place to grow hair than you’d think. I’m really glad you felt comfortable enough to share your story on here, there are a lot of us who are glad to hear from other women going through the same thing! x
WHAT GUYS LOOK FOR IN GIRLS:
- STUNNING EYES
- A LIL FREAKY WHEN UR ALONE
Anonymous asked: WHY DONT YOU START SHAVING?! SERIOUSLY, YOURE TOO GROSS
Out of curiosity, what do you think is gross about body hair? Do you think all body hair is gross or just body hair on people you think are female? For instance, do you find leg hair on a person you perceive to be a man gross? What about head and eyebrow hair, in general? What makes that hair any different than say my leg, stomach, and chest hair? How does the fact that I don’t remove my body hair make me, as a person, “seriously, too gross”? Seems, to me, like a pretty silly thing to be getting so serious about in the first place. Did you know that the removal (specifically shaving and waxing) of pubic hair has been linked with an increased risk of STD transmission? I just found that out recently. All the more reason to remain fuzzy. :) I find it so strange that people think I should alter my natural state. Like, why? I love my body hair. It seems ridiculous to me that random strangers think I would even consider altering my body based on their expectations, media contrived beauty standards, and preferences. If you don’t like my body hair, or feel the need to police people based on their outward appearance, I encourage you to, instead, stop looking at the people you find “gross” and, perhaps, consider doing something more productive than attempting to tear others down for their personal grooming choices. I have such an amazing abundance of love, intimacy, and support in my life. I have no need for the approval of random nameless people who insult others in cowardice through the curtain of Internet anonymity. Here is a more detailed post about the reasons I choose not to alter the natural state of my body through body hair removal. :) http://phoenixfloe.tumblr.com/post/47545679507/for-the-love-of-body-hair
I don’t understand why guys say girls focus too much on their appearance but then won’t go within 50 feet of a girl who doesn’t shave her legs
