Someone I am is waiting for my courage


I'm starting to loose might fight against the norm. I shaved my legs for a party, and I'm thinking of doing it regularly now. It kind of annoys me.

I had good reasons for not shaving my legs, above and beyond just being lazy. It was a double standard. People don't mind men not shaving, but with women, it's almost like you haven't showered that day. From what I've been told, it's also one of the many attempts to make women look like pre-pubecent children, always ready for sex. Young but child-bearing. It's a social norm that people just take for granted, to the point that the media can't even respect a women for making the desion to not do it.

I still haven't shaved my legs since the party. I don't know what I'll actualyl end up doing, but I figured it was worth a babble.
