The prompt for my International Zine Month 2020: Zine A Day project for Day 24 was Hair. For me, that meant writing all about my experiences with body hair…
I used to worry so much in my teenage years about the unsightly little black hairs poking out from my legs, protruding from my underarms, and when I was especially unlucky at the swimming pool curling out from between my thighs. My anxiety might be worse than it ever has been… but in this instance, I do not give a single fuck about what you think of my floof. If I shave, I shave for me. If I choose not to shave, I do that for me too. In this zine I am approaching the topic of body hair from a feminine point of view, as that is my perspective, but I hope you will find this information and my thoughts useful regardless of where you fall on the gender spectrum.
