But I was like "FUCK YOU THEY ARE SHOES."

HAHAHA, I LOVE YOU, LUKI. ♥ I love my Docs. Sometimes I wear them with my skirt. :D

LIES, ALL LIES. Feminism, to me, means the right to do what you like because you like it, not Because You're A Girl. I'm sick of double standards; I'm sick of "men do this, women do that, BECAUSE THEY'RE MEN AND WOMEN." I want to do what I want to do, for my own reasons. That's it.

I admit I do have a harder time believing that every single person who says they like shaving actually likes shaving, but this is because I used to think I liked it. It's still very complex in my head--I think it is definitely possible to enjoy shaving, and possible to do it for reasons besides societal pressures, because smooth skin *is* a pleasant sensation. And I wouldn't ask for the freedom to do as I please with my body, while simultaneously denying that freedom to others! That would be crazy hypocritical. But I still want to keep pointing out that we would likely never have thought to shave had we not grown up in a culture that ordered us to do so, from practically the moments of our births. Culture taught us this, not instinct. I feel like that's something of which one should be conscious, even if one does choose to begin or continue shaving. (I am also very Grrr! about corporations telling me what to do, and the fact that all this hair-shaming I have to contend with started because someone wanted to make more money--well, RAWR! X_X )

I totally wear high heels sometimes. I have some knee-high black boots with two-inch heels, and they're enough to murder my feet, but damn if they're not gorgeous. They also click really loudly when I walk down halls at school in them. 8D

Huh, really...? o_O BIZARRE. They accepted mine, but that was ages ago before all the Spotlight stuff made the comm go BOOM. Maybe they're just being extra careful right now. Did they say why they rejected you? Perhaps you could message them or something? If they'd like you to have someone to vouch for you, or whatever they're requiring now, I totally will. 8D
