we were little girls with messy hair who wanted to shoot lasers at the people who hurt us. we made our barbies fly, made them spies, made them as strong as we wanted to be. they could stand up to the bullies. when we were older, we would ask, “where are the female superheroes?” “it’s just a movie,” we were assured, “and what’s wrong with being the girl next door?”.. http://inkskinned.com/post/135576158614/we-were-little-girls-with-messy-hair-who-wanted-to
The essence of Christmas is its relevance. It can have a home at every stage of life. It is the voice crying out in wilderness and not a story tale once told. It can be as meaningful in the present as it was 2000 years ago, for Jesus is still shining bright. This year take time and look at twinkle of the lights or the stars shining bright, may it also be a reminder of the One who gives light to all. Christmas is all about the good news of a changed heart
It's okay to find body hair unattractive, but it is NOT okay to shame/shun people, or respond publicly with 'eww' just because somebody doesn’t shave. I hate how women are called unattractive, disgusting, etc when they have hairy underarms just bc society has been conditioned to believe that women are gross unless they’re as hairless as a prepubescent child"
