shopping for supplies for making binders and a swim top I can wear over a binder
when I called my mom (before we got into it abt the body hair thing) I said I needed to take care of that and she already did and.. well you know. Everyone has this problem sometimes.
I’d like to have a binding top so I can introduce the idea to her as a thing I do sometimes to be comfortable. Because the other option is to avoid situations where I’ll be self conscious.
waiting for a link for the SNK OVA to show up on my dash just waiting
Anyway, I’m disappearing into my workhole to prepare for being gone 20 days!
I’ve just had a long argument with my mom that ended in a compromise on my part, but my condition is that she has to discuss with me why I feel so strongly about my GORGEOUS LEG FUR
In 10 days I’m going to my hometown to go on a family vacation, I’m glad I’m going but of course so close to leaving mom confronts me about my grooming habits, and we quickly agreed that we “don’t understand why its such a big deal”
She says I should be open to just shaving “for the trip” so she’s comfortable,
I say that’s the exact reason I shouldn’t, and that others’ discomfort really is an important part of my decision to not shave. People don’t get used to shit if they aren’t made to see it.
Besides I like having furry legs and pits, and my skin is healthier for not dragging razorblades over it daily (I’d say ingrown hairs and razorburn are less appealing than body hair anyway)
I got through a lot of my points and all I could do was concede that it’s a process and I can’t really expect my mom (who lives very comfortably inside society’s expectations) to be able to see it as a nonissue when she’s never been confronted with it (it was very sly of her not to bring it up earlier). But if I have to give up ground on this I NEED to get some back, because I won’t let this be a precedent, I won’t let her make a habit of guilting me into giving up my control over my appearance when she’ll have to be around me and bring me around other people.
She got really upset but I won’t be manipulated that way. She’s always been really influenced by shame and that had a really huge effect on me growing up and it’s been such a process growing out of that. Wearing my body hair helped me get over a lot of other body image shit.
Mostly I just feel bad for her for living with that. I hope she can grow a bit?
I think the eventual conversation will have to breach subjects we’ve never talked about before re: my identity and gender and how important it is for me to present how I feel comfortable. Which is nerve wracking but other than being exasperated and unable to process it at all, I think she’ll be able to take that ok enough.
Has anyone following me had to try to impress this on anyone? What did you say, how did it go? Whats easy to digest for someone who never has to question why they have their habits and why they allow others’ mild discomfort to decide how they present themselves?
We’re endeared to each other being emotional about things the other doesn’t understand or care about
yesterday i watched rome look at the SNK tag,
yell “NO ITS YOUNG HISTORIA” close their laptop, lay on the floor, and whisper “she was touching a horse”
i relate to this on a spiritual level
