I am on season 5 of “The L Word” and not once in those 5 seasons have I seen a vulva (yes, a vulva, not a vagina, get over it) in the dozens and dozens and dozens of sex scenes in this show. HOWEVER, I just saw a dick. A guy got naked and even though it was far away, it was close enough for me to see his dick flopping around when he ran and jumped into a pool.
Just ew. All the ew and double standards and ew. Idk.

Who the fuck shaves their arms. Fuck dat.
^ I got bullied a lot for that shit and so I ended up using laser hair removal on my arms actually
the amount of bullying i received in grade school for my arm hair led to me starting to shave it by the time i was 13 or 14….
freakishly enough, my mother was the one who harassed me the most about shaving.
My mom used to “toughen me up” by bending my arm and licking her palm, and using her hands to rub in a circular motion to knot the hairs together so I couldn’t unbend my arm without tearing the hair out. I still have not received a satisfactory explanation of why she would do that.
Like…on the one hand, my mom’s support in regards to my bullying was kind of amazing, but on the other, her ways of trying to make me “stronger” or “tougher” and being like, “you’re too sensitive” were pretty undermining at the same time.
^^^That is really not cool, I am sorry that that happened to you :/
When I was in middle school, this dumb girl used to really make fun of me everyday at the bus stop for shaving my arm hair, or so she thought, anyway. My arm hair is the same shade as my skin so it’s hard to see when you are looking straight on at it. People just come up with the stupid shit to be mean about.
I am gonna flat out say that having having light skin, especially being a light skin woman of color, isn’t all butterflies and rainbows. There are merits to a conversation about how it is a double-edged sword that both hurts and helps those with light skin privilege because of white supremacy, and I wanna talk about it with out it being labelled “light skin whine” because that is just a bullshit way to derail and cover up another way that white supremacy invades and affects the lives of people of color.
