“NOT SHAVING ISN’T ALWAYS A CHOICE FOR WOMEN OF COLOUR”
Jess Brooks

Although I am a member of the patriarchy and may accurately be criticized as blindly oozing white privilege, I’ll argue that a really simple way we can all cooperate in radical change for the corrosive inequalities between men and women, and ethnicities as well, is to call for amnesty on hair. Don’t shave, whoever you are and wherever the hair is, if you don’t want to.

Yes- it will be a stunning unfoldment of who we are, in the sense of what we actually look like. The great value of this movement is that we step out of a single ubiquitous control and finally see the rich diversity of our human race. Once enough people join in, the compliance that powers the cultural policing is lost.

A plus- a whole new range of clothing styles that complement our hairy limbs!
