october always reminds me that it’s very important to be both cute and eldritch as fuck
Nothing ever changes with white people and their support for killer pigs.
The democrats have their flaws, I’ll admit. Sometimes they carpet bomb people in Southeast Asia and install dictatorships in Latin America, but
It’s noteworthy, I think, that people who’ve spent the past six years complaining about and even working to undermine the federal government now insist the federal government must do something swift and meaningful to coordinate a national response to the health scare of Ebola.
Professor Breanne Fahs offers female students extra-credit if they “stop shaving their legs and underarms for ten weeks during the semester while keeping a journal to document their experiences.” For Fahs, who teaches women and gender studies, the purpose is to get students thinking critically about societal norms and gender roles.
A similar opportunity is available to men in Fahs’ classes who recieve extra credit for shaving all of their hair from the neck down.
One student, Stephanie Robinson, described it as a “life-changing experience:
"Many of my friends didn’t want to work out next to me or hear about the assignment, and my mother was distraught at the idea that I would be getting married in a white dress with armpit hair. I also noticed the looks on faces of strangers and people around campus who seemed utterly disgusted by my body hair. It definitely made me realize that if you’re not strictly adhering to socially prescribed gender roles, your body becomes a site for contestation and public opinion."
it’s been almost a year since I (perceived as a woman, and I often wear short shorts and tank tops) stopped shaving my armpits and my legs. where is my extra credit?
I’ll give you some extra credit :p
I have decided I’m going to get a tattoo before the end of the year.
