- Movie 43 (2013)
My coworker spends all day walking around not doing shit, so when she’s away from her desk I change her background to pictures of Kevin Hart that show how I feel about it.
I may be 25+ years late on this but- isn’t this song and music video just describing a white guy really wanting to bone the hell out of an ethnic chick?
Krissy: “Pubic hair is proof of sexual maturity, and if your partner finds that a turn-off, you should probably reconsider that partner.” ― Hadley Freeman
Ben: Bodily hair is (however inaccurately) linked with masculinity by a long culture of binary conditioning, and if your partner finds that a turn-off, you should probably consider that they are subject to the omnipotent influence of cultural conditioning no less than you are—and that if signifiers uniquely masculine or feminine turn you on, it’s usually because you learned them, and maybe be a little forgiving of your partner for growing up in a culture that forged their erotic preferences for them.” — Hadley Freeman after some thought.
Krissy: It doesn’t matter. Anybody who doesn’t love you for everything that’s growing out of your body can go fuck themselves.
Krissy: And if someone expects you to spend hours and hours of your week dragging a razor against your skin, or waxing until you cry, or getting razor bumps because they can’t find your normal human body sexy, then they’re the ones who need to change. Or they need to go away. It’s not the other way around.
Krissy: I suppose we could “forgive them.” And then it would be time to send them on their way.
Ben: There’s a difference between making someone shave and being turned off by the hair, though. This quote is condemning the -thought-, not the (admittedly dodgy) practice of forcing your partner to modify themselves.
I’m an intensely cynical person.
Reading things like this make me question myself.
Good job, humanity.
