So, these are only a FEW of the tweets that were aimed towards me, for  openly being a female with armpit hair. There are millions more that I may or may not post. But for now, let’s go ahead and review this here folks.

Does a dozen teenagers who have been brainwashed by our patriarchal, misogynistic society telling me that I’m a disgusting hairy ape hurt my feelings? Absolutely not. I’m obviously very proud to display my body and my personal choices that go against our cruel standards for women.

But what does make me sad, is that this is what we are teaching our youth. These are the real, raw beliefs of young people today in regards to women, and what they can and cannot do with their bodies.

They truly believe in their minds that it is ‘unacceptable’ and ‘disgusting’ for a woman to make the choice to not shave. What’s even more sad to me is that the people agreeing with this boy were ALL FEMALE. Is this kind of bias, this kind of internalized hatred for womens bodies &  choices really what we want to continue to teach them? This is probably the first time they have seen a woman who doesn’t take a razor and shave off what naturally grows on her body, and they’re legitimately angry to the point where they can personally attack someone they don’t even know about their body. They are angry to the point where it’s almost as if they feel personally insulted that a girl does not shave. Let’s stop and think: why would they feel this angry about a personal choice that is so very insignificant? That has no effect on our health, hygiene or well being?

Think back to this the next time you hear yourself or someone else saying 'women are equal' or ‘women aren’t discriminated against.’Because this is what we are teaching our young women. We are teaching them that your body is not okay, it is not okay to go against what society defines as ‘beautiful.’ It is not okay to be open about who you are, what you choose to do with your body that makes you most comfortable. It is not okay to make a choice that goes against the rules that society has set for us. That you are ‘psycho,’ an ape, disgusting, & that your choices that fit your comfort are not okay. This is the world we have created for women.

Fuck yeah.

Sak Yant - Sacred Magic Tattoos

Sak Yant, called the sacred magic tattoo or Buddhist tattoo, is an ancient type of Thai tattoo. When applied by a Buddhist Monk or Brahman Priest, the tattoo is said to confer mystical powers and protection on the wearer. It incorporates Buddhist prayers, called Mantras or Katas, that will invoke supernatural powers. Centuries ago, these magic spells were originally inscribed on pieces of cloth and Thai soldiers would wear Yant-printed jackets to offer them extra protection in battle.

Even today, many Thai men believe in their mystical powers, and have one or more tattoos inscribed on their bodies. There are stories of people wearing Sak Yant tattoos who were shot or involved in horrific car accidents from which tattoo bearers supposedly emerged unharmed.

The Sak Yant’s power of magic has been known to Thai people for hundreds of years, long before Buddhism came to Thailand. But Sak Yant has only recently become popular in the Western World, partly due to the publicity surrounding well known personalities receiving a Sak Yant tattoo.

Wow…
