Anonymous said: Hiii so I was wondering what swimsuit do you wear when going for a swim? I'm a girl too and I have hairy stomach and arms I don't know what swimsuit I should wear when in public pool / beach? :)
Hello! I received an ask about that a while ago: http://hairytummy.tumblr.com/post/74135986887/im-hairy-all-over-the-place-stomach-back-chest
Since then, I bought a bikini and went to the beach with it! I was jealous of all the girls with bikinis so I didn’t feel like wearing the one piece. I shaved everything (arms, legs, back, belly, chest) and it was pretty complicated. Well it was complicated for the back mostly, next time I think I will use a hair removal cream. I was a bit scared I missed spots (I’m pretty sure I did lol) but people at the beach were all busy tanning and having fun with their friends to care about me I think.
Just go with what you feel most comfortable! Choose a swimsuit you like and you’ll be really cute with it c: have fun swimming!
Body hair on women is no different from the body hair on men
Why is this so difficult to understand
No matter your gender identity or sexuality you’re a fucking idiot if you think women are obligated to shave
And if you’re a man fucking covered in hair and think it’s gross for women to not shave…you’re a moron and shouldn’t be allowed the privilege of touching a woman’s body
There are people getting rich on our hatred of our bodies
IF YOUR BOYFRIEND MAKES JOKES ABOUT YOUR BODY, WEIGHT, EATING DISORDER, RECOVERY, ETC, MAKE A JOKE ABOUT HOW HE’S SINGLE AND THEN WALK OUT THE DOOR BECAUSE THAT IS SOME FUCKEN BULLSHIT AND YOU ARE A BAD BITCH WHO DESERVES BETTER OK OK

Feel like this can also apply to body hair!(via hirsuteandcute)
Anonymous said: Hi there, I really love this blog and appreciate that it's even here. Just knowing there are others out there with similar issues is sooo comforting. I have never been in a romantic relationship before and I think that one may start up? Idk, but I keep pushing him away because of thinking how he'd react to seeing my body hair. Should I tell him before he sees or let him just kind of find out? Haha sorry if this is a weird question. Thanks -Amanda
Thank you! Oh don’t worry, it’s probably not as big of a deal to him as you’re worried it is and it would be a shame to push someone away that you’re interested in just because of it. If this guy is worth your time he really won’t care. Whether you choose to tell him or let him find out is up to you, personally I don’t tell the people I date and let them find out because I don’t think it’s a big deal that requires some kind of disclaimer or announcement. Should they ask about it (which I have to point out almost never happens unless I bring it up first

4chan is targeting tags and posting incredibly violent and triggering material within them. DO NOT ACCESS THE ABOVE TAGS.
I noticed that a lot of the PSA’s were images without transcripts, and there are several posts with different tags to look out for.
This is a compilation of those tags, in a text format for anyone who has issues with reading images.
Please spread around in the interests of accessibility, especially since the ableism tags are being targeted as well.
Thank you, and stay safe.
I’m going to assume that this is part of the 4Chan targeting as well: This evening I received a lot of unspeakable messages and submissions. They were all rape, gore, and violence, related. They literally made me throw-up, so I’m probably going to either avoid tumblr for a day or so until this hopefully cools down, or at least not be so quick to go to my ask box.
Stay safe, everyone.
