Isn’t it intriguing how the word “humanity” is used to describe virtue, and yet, human beings are notorious for ultimately destroying just about everything we touch?
Exhibit A: Mother Earth.
Exhibit B:Each other.
There’s no denying it — human beings are curious creatures. For a species which perpetually glorifies goodness, we tend to do an awful lot of crooked things. Still, the question remains: are human beings plagued by evil, or are we actually the plague in ourselves?
Let’s talk about body hair. More specifically, let’s discuss body hair removal… mainly, as it applies to women.
I’m actually seriously starving after my morning fight training, and usually I dash to my fridge for food the moment my post-gym shower has concluded.
But today was different because a thought struck me as I shaved my legs in the shower just now, a thought that made me run straight to my laptop to write this blog entry.
Why is it even a societal norm for women to be hairless [aside from their mane, eyebrows, and eyelashes, I mean]? Where did that idea even come from in the first place?
Men and women both have natural body hair, so how did it become such that females are “supposed” to make themselves appear hairless at all given times while men get to keep their body hair all-natural?

For starters, some of you may be wondering who Dita Von Teese is and what she actually does. Don’t worry – we’ll get to that.
However, since Google has gone ahead and thrown the present-day star, Dita Von Teese, in with all of the old school, original pin-up girls, we have to delve a bit deeper. Dita’s appearance on this list raises questions.
What is a pin-up girl? Can full-on pin-up girls be alternative, or are they limited to glamour? Is Dita Von Teese a pin-up girl if she models and performs in the present-day with an alternative edge? What is a SuicideGirl? Is Dita Von Teese actually a SuicideGirl? And, most importantly, what’s the difference between a pin-up girl and a SuicideGirl?
The cold weather has finally struck, and it’s absolutely lovely. Additionally, November and December are totally some of the best months for high fashion looks.
But, as we adjust our wardrobes for that late fall and early winter chill, we have to ask ourselves which colors we can actually dye our hair during this time of year. Since pastels are a no-go in the current weather, what colors can we use while staying in season and still keeping our edge?
Your question is about to be answered. Start thinking about how you’re going to keep up with your roots, because the punk rock hair color list you need is right here.
