wow, i actually did not know that! thank you so much for the insightful information; i’m sure many women don’t know this. i appreciate you and thank you again!
She woke up like she did every day: slowly pulling her motorcycle helmet off, then shaking her head slowly back and forth to reveal a long, blonde ponytail. Everyone gasped. “That’s right,” she said, kicking the winning football goal before sliding into a sheer, sexy camisole under a blazer and playing as hard as she worked, “I’ve been a girl this whole time.” One of the guys, the real sexy one, shook his head in slow motion, as if to say “wh-wh-wh-whaaat?” You know the kind. His mouth was kind of open while he did it. He was totally blown away.
She walked off the field, and she knew everyone was looking at her butt, and she totally loved it. “Sorry, boys,” she called out over her super-sexy shoulder. She always called men boys, because she knew what gender was. Now she was carrying a briefcase and wearing a pencil skirt and sex glasses. She was at law.
“Your Honor,” she said, and the Honor paid attention, “I’d like to win this case,” and she totally did, she totally beat that busted-looking male lawyer who had the mushy face and wore suits that didn’t fit. She gave a little fist-pump, because even though she’s tough, she’s still relatable. “Girl power,” she said, high-fiving her curly-haired friend, who had just appeared behind her.
“Girl, you need a drink,” her curly-haired friend said, “and I need a man.” She laughed because her curly-haired friend didn’t really get it yet, but she was getting there…"
A Day in the Life of an Empowered Female Character by Mallory Ortberg
Yep, I have always been a woman. Many trans* people feel that they have always been the gender they identify with, though, so that question isn’t worded to reveal what I think you are actually asking. It seems to me what you really want to know is if I was born biologically female/with female reproductive organs. Honestly, I’m not even sure if how I just worded that is non-offensive/acceptable terminology. I’m still learning about these things, and fully open to correction and strive to be as respectful of everyone as possible, in general. Anyway, the answer is yes. I was born with only female reproductive organs. I am a cis female.There are many, many women with lots of body hair including women with chest, breast, and belly hair. This is my understanding based on what I have read on this subject (which I’ve researched extensively) and from the messages I receive from women regularly who are also very hairy. Also, many of those women have no known hormone condition associated with their hair growth just like me. The cause is often decided to be genetic and based mostly on heritage. Mine is because of my Italian blood, according to my doctors.The reason it is so uncommon to see body hair on women and why many people have no idea it even exists as it does is because it is socially unacceptable to grow it and show it. Women are shamed, openly, by society, family, peers, love interests, and the media into removing it and pretending that it was never there. There is often great shame and revulsion associated with body hair on females, especially when it grows on places like the chest, back, stomach, beasts, ass, face/neck. I believe from what I have experienced that this reaction is learned and engrained into us from a very young age. It permeates every aspect of our culture.Think for a moment about TV advertisements for male shaving products. In the demonstrations of shaving, the men are almost always shaving real hair off their faces. They SHOW the hair. In advertisements for female shaving products, they NEVER show the hair the woman is shaving. Never. I’ve never once see it. They never show a hairy leg or armpit. It’s a constructed paradigm for the benefit of profit and it, among other related things, will only ever tear humanity down and hold us back. It is a powerful force and has destroyed a great many lives. Insecurity and self hatred kills people all the time in so many, often unfathomable, ways.This is a mass and systematic brainwashing of young girls (and guys!) that tries (and often succeeds) to get them to believe unequivocally that females (and in some cases even males) are revolting, disgusting, dirty, and unattractive in their natural state and that in order to be found aesthetically appealing and especially “sexy” on any level, they have to alter their natural state of being. In my opinion, these kinds of messages are abusive and can and do cause severe psychological damage, and will, undoubtedly, effect every aspect of these girls lives for the rest of their lives. Most of them will never even realize it, will never even think about it, will never even question it at all. I’m glad you asked this question. I’ve been mulling a bunch of this around in my head but hadn’t really put any of it to words yet. Thank you! :)
