Why the Hell Did Someone Hire a White Guy to Read an Essay That Begins 'I'm a Southern Black Woman'?
Some women CAN'T shave. I have eczema, and shaving with a razor turns my legs into a nasty, itchy, bumpy-then-bloody mess. When I do shave, I have to do it in a downwards direction, so I never really get a close shave anyway. And that's only the bottom part of my legs. For above the knee, I can only use an electric razor, and some days, I just don't have 20 minutes to deal with it. And I don't have the money and the endurance for waxing all year long. Which doesn't seem to be an issue, because Mr. Ruby is still always trying to get some of this!
Sorry for the rant. I guess what I am saying is, "I love you, Monique! Shout out for not shaving!
