I have to say this: you are an amazing, amazing person and I am so grateful that I know you and get to read what you write. You've inspired me more than you know.

This post is just... yes. Exactly. I struggle so much with this: It is not my obligation to adhere to the prevailing cultural standards of female beauty so that other people will feel aesthetic pleasure upon looking at me. But I never let myself think about it much, because, I don't know, subconsciously I expect thinking about it to make it more real. I do enjoy the feeling of shaven skin, but when I think about it, I know I started shaving my legs because I felt ugly when I was the only one of my friends who didn't.

For me, going without a bra is usually a painful experience (fuck you, DD breasts), but I almost never wear anything besides sports bras. They make me look aesthetically pleasing to myself, they stop the kind of bouncing which involves back pain, etc. Unfortunately, they're also particularly expensive, but... it's worth it, I think.

Anyway, in short! This post is amazing, and definitely something I needed to read. Thank you. ♥
