'Asexual Revolution' photographed by Steven Meisel for W September 2004
This was one of the most important editorials of my life and I recognize this only in hindsight.

Normalize fat women’s bodies. Normalize public breastfeeding. Normalize home births and midwives and reproductive autonomy. Normalize body hair on women.
Reject the notion that women are to be regulated and controlled and pressured to conform to societal standards.
I really love my baby hairs! It’s summer here and it just feels so nice to have them wave around in the pool or ocean :) Everyone around me thinks they’re gross except my sweet, sweet boyfriend, but I feel that it’s important for me to grow them out not only for myself on my journey to self-love and acceptance, but also for other people who might be ashamed of theirs as I once was (and still sometimes can be). I was inspired to stop shaving by a peace intern at my church camp who stopped shaving hers, and now I plan to grow them out every summer! (I do shave in winter though because my jeans hurt when they pull the hairs.) Good luck to everyone on here, you are all brave and beautiful people! Don’t let anyone ever tell you different!

☯ I AM ENOUGH ☯
I’m thinking/feeling “You all inspire me so much!!!” :D ..And then I’m like “…if they inspire my, then I inspire me too!!!" and it gave me an even greater sense of conviction and courage [definition: of the heart] <3 *pats self on back* You are all stars for honouring yourselves and I’m sending you love. :)
If we all let our beings be dehumanized and dictated by The Man, we would be hollow, battered shells of women…many of us have experienced what that’s like - and it AINT right!!! We have too much integrity, intelligence, strength and wisdom to stay stuck…instead, we wake up every day and choose to EVOLVE! We are fully dynamic, capable human beings with SO much more to offer than how each, separate part of our objectified temples looks! Aint NO money hungry c.e.o. gonna tell me how I need to modify my body to be enough. I was enough the moment I was born and I’ll be enough every moment until my final sacred breath. Our bodies are enough, and our hearts are enough. We know it and we show it!!! *tenderly strokes hairy shin* ♀
You are a Goddess manifesting through the physical plane. Congratulations for seeing that!
UWU My glorious hairy legs (the hairiest in the family - I’m so proud!) - which are going to have to go away for now, because I actually have shorts and a super cute skirt to wear! I’m visiting some of my best-est friends from college, and I’m sure we’re going to have to go on outings that I may find stressful and anxiety-inducing, so unfortunately shaving my legs is part of reducing that anxiety as much as I can :C. But, they’ll be back soon enough, probably just in time for Fall!
I’m going to take a tumblr break for some weeks so I won’t answer asks, but there will still be posts, the queue is full! Take care darlings!
