Talking pubes is a hairy business, pun sort of intended. Its about time a lady spoke up on some issues that dictate her lady bits on a day to day basis– like her vagina and a woman’s right to pubes.
I get that PETA is trying to be all “save the animals” and what not, but they could do with being slightly less douchey about it. Seriously, stop being a douche, PETA.
In the majority of societies today throughout the world, its deemed unattractive, unkempt, and even unhygienic for a woman to not take some sort of measurements to protect her vaj from the dreaded pubic hair. There’s the classic razor, electric razor, scissors, depilator, hot and cold wax, and most recently laser removal where for a large sum of money you can pay a person to point a laser at your vagina and zap the living shit out of those pube follicles and send you into agonizing, threshold of hell pain. But, you know, you’ll be hair free.
Your friends give you strange looks if you tell them your “natural,” your lover goes limp noodle on you when he sees fur pie, you’re embarrassed to swim because you’ve got trim hanging out your bikini bottoms… Pubes have become humiliating for a woman, and I believe unfairly so.
From the wave of free internet porn touting smooth vagine to fancy lingerie and skimpy bikinis, our cultures are unkind to pubes and they don’t care who knows! We’re expected to destroy any evidence of being an adult and shape our vaginas into their pre-pubescent state. And like it.

So if you wanna fly free and keep your vintage look, then go on with your bad self! If ripping hair out of your poonani is your thing, then praise be! Rip away– but don’t you ddddaaarrreee shame us into doing it! A woman’s right to pubes!
Having a baby is rough, like rougher than that one time in college you got so drunk you passed out in a hallway at a stranger’s house and woke up with dried barf on yourself rough. Imagine that. Imagine squeezing a watermelon out of a lemon-sized opening, then let’s talk.

How fast does time fly when I’m reading a stinking urine-soaked plastic device that tells me I’ve got one in the oven to 7 weeks till blast off??

I’m SO happy to report that almost all of the misery of the first trimester has finally fallen behind me. My energy is back and with no nausea, I’m feeling myself again….just pregnant-er.

As evident by the title, there is human life stirring within my bowels. Imagine that. Now try and sleep.
