I kept reading reviews of Caitlin Morans book How to Be a Woman. How to be a woman, is an autobiography of Caitlin Moran’s life, and it’s a book about feminine stuff you encounter as a woman.
So when I wandered through the library, and I saw it standing there on a shelf, I jumped on it, and put it in my bag to take home with me! Because even though I ám a woman, you never know what new stuff there is to learn about hów to be a woman.
The loss of the hairy pubic area
One particular topic that grabbed my attention, was the question about whether it’s okay to be hairy down there. And I was shocked to read that modern day man is shocked when he finds himself in bed with a woman who has ‘gone bush’.
In a way I think that is quite sad. What happened to old fashioned chivalry?! I can’t imagine being in bed with my husband, and him critiquing my private parts. He should consider himself lucky he’s allowed to get so close!
What message do I want to give my kids?
Anyway, Caitlin Moran’s book got me thinking, about what message I want to give my two daughers and three sons. I don’t want my sons growing up thinking women should be bald down there, nor do I want my girls to feel obliged to remove their pubic hair.
So I’ve decided there’s only one thing to do: I’ve got to show them what a real woman looks like. Next time I step out of the shower, I’m going commando!
How do you feel about the hair subject of a hairy pubic area?
And what message do you wish to impart on your children?
