Someone asked me about this a while ago but now that the time is upon us, I can’t help but feel frustrated that societal rules about shaving/not shaving are so fucking gendered and prescriptive.
November is now the month in which we celebrate the hair that grows naturally on men’s bodies…
Yet continue to shame women for the hair that grows naturally on their bodies.
When we raise awareness for men’s health and testicular cancer, it becomes an uber-hipster moustache wankfest.
When we raise awareness for breast cancer (which effects EVERYONE - not just women), it becomes an uber-sexualized parade of pink ribbons and tits.
Just pointing out facts.
