A Stray Curly Hair

07 November 2012, 14:15

On Wednesday I was ‘insulted’ by someone who calls himself the Vaaldonkie because he guessed (correctly) that I don’t shave. Boo-hoo big deal. 


He said: “The only thing I've ever wanted is for a hairy anti-establishment feminist to trust me.”


Yes I may be hairy, anti-establishment and a bit of a feminist, but so what. Does that scare you VaalDonkie? Does it bother you that every time I wear a bikini I am not afraid to ‘let the dogs out’? Frightened of a little stray curly, are we?


It is funny that this topic has come up in the month of Movember, because this is the perfect time for South African women to also partake by growing a little beard beneath each pit. And grow those leg hairs too, girls. Free yourself from the male chauvinist pigs that decree you should be clean shaven. Let’s tackle this issue right now: the only reason women shave their pits, legs and bikini lines is because they have been conditioned to do so by men. Shaving is a drag, admit it! Smooth armpits are not actually sexy either. You will be amazed how many REAL men prefer the hairy option, who prefer the NATURAL option.


If you are a woman, and you decide to grow a little fur in November, you can take pride in the fact that you are fighting against the typically stupid and gendered bullshit that are we are conditioned to accept as our only option for looking sexy. 


And lets make it a double challenge. Toss out that harmful under-arm deodorant and make your own. (Clue: google coconut oil). Most deodorants contain harmful chemicals and they mask your natural body odour, which contains sex pheromones, VITAL to attracting a mate. Isn’t it ironic that women, so desperate to find a partner, are shaving and spraying the very area that is guaranteed to help your cause? 


Perception is a powerful thing, and only we can change it. Go the natural route.

I do not understand the logic of Parliament showing such concern for a few lives lost each year in the mines when we lose 18 lives every day of the year on our roads. Read more...
