Hey Ya’ll. It’s No Shave November! I had to do an artistic and raw shot for this. This topic hits home for me. I want to normalize something right quick. Women have body hair too. On our upper lip, between our eyes, under our arms, our legs, our backs! It is NOT disgusting. It is NOT grotesque. There is no shame in body hair, whether a women, a man, a non-conforming person. Ever since I was a young girl, I was always insecure about my body hair, because everyone always pointed it out, especially because there is also a believed idea that as an Asian, Hmong women, we are seen as very fair and hairless. Because of this, I didn’t feel beautiful, I didn’t feel woman enough, I didn’t feel “Asian Women” enough to be specific. But, coming to terms with my body hair, loving and embracing that part of me, I’ve come to see myself in such better light. I started letting my under arm hair grow maybe since Spring of this year. It is nerve wrecking. That fear that someone will be shocked that I have hair under my arms as a women, but at the end of the day, I tell myself, I know who I am, I know my worth, and my hair does not make me any less beautiful. It means I’m a person. It means that I am a free thinker. It means I don’t allow societal norms to pressure me to fit into a box they call “beautiful.” I am beautiful. And you are too.
