Plenty of women report being bullied over having fuzzy upper limbs — but are hairy arms so bad? Where did this notion come from? And, has the perception of them changed over the years? The renowned biologist wrote in his book , The Descent Of Man , that hairlessness is a sign of evolutionary superiority. Herzig also cites an study showing that women with excessive facial hair were more likely to go insane. They went from scrubbing off the pesky little strands using sandpaper to applying cream made from rat poison. Some went as far as getting X-ray treatment, which meant having regular and unhealthy exposure to radiation. Here are some safer and less painful methods of removing hair have emerged in the last few decades:. Razor burns are another cause for concern, but this can be avoided by regularly exfoliating, using shaving cream, and shaving in the direction in which hair grows. Using a sharp blade is also a must.
Motherhood Made Her a Literal Dog
I became acutely aware of my body hair when I was in second grade. A girl in my class grabbed my arm and asked why I was so hairy — an insecurity I didn't have until that very moment. That night I used my mom's razor to hack at the fuzz on my arms, leaving me with mismatched patches of hair, bloodied nicks, and a scar that I still have nearly 20 years later. I started shaving my legs in the fourth grade, when the girls in class laughed at how hairy I was. I started bleaching my mustache in the fifth grade after an adult family member told me it was getting noticeably dark. I started plucking my unibrow that same year for the very same reason. Even now, as I try to reckon with my body hair as an adult, it's a struggle. I'm hypersensitive to having it even though I know it's a cultural signifier, something that many of the Latinx people in my life relate to.
Made in , the video depicts a young Rosler wearing a long black dress and apron as she stands in a traditional kitchen. Cooking utensils are laid out on the table in front of her, and with a completely emotionless face, Rosler displays for the camera one utensil for each letter of the alphabet—A for apron, B for bowl, C for chopper, etc. Her face remains affectless throughout the video, but as she demonstrates how to use each tool, her motions become more and more aggressive. An ice pick is speared fitfully into the wooden tabletop and a knife, held like a weapon, is stabbed violently into the air. All her passion was channeled into her movements as she juiced an imaginary lemon, cracked imaginary nuts.
