I hate being a hairy woman.
Booty hair, like pubic hair (I’m sure they’re an extension of each other) has a purpose but I grow what I consider to be an excessive amount of both. Anal hair tickles me (not literally).
Not just because of where it is, but because when I am trying to shave or trim it I have to twist and contort my body into all kinds of weird and uncomfortable positions.
Looks silly, but this could definitely help ease my pain.
I applaud Angelina Jolie and any other woman for taking the necessary medical steps to live a longer and healthier life for themselves and their family. Cancer is a HUGE deal so don’t think I am making light of it, but if I hear one more person give her kudos for having her breasts removed because she’s considered one of the most beautiful women in the world, I will scream!
Her breasts being removed is much deeper than Hollywood beauty and it’s beside the point!
People are literally visualizing her breasts being hacked off, but that’s not the case. The procedure involves removing the tissue inside the breasts and replacing it with implants.
Besides, now Angelina Jolie will always have perfect, perky breasts, so her vanity is still in tact and I’m sure she got a pair that hold up better than the originals.
Of course if she decides to have more children, before having her ovaries removed (she has a 50% chance of developing ovarian Cancer), she will not be able to breastfeed; other than that the physical aspects of her decision were probably last on her list of worries.
Angelina has said that she doesn’t feel less of a woman after the procedure and she shouldn’t because breasts don’t make the woman. The woman makes the breasts!
Werk those new ta-tas, Angelina!

What do you love most about being of Irish heritage?
Other than the right to be in a St. Patty’s day Parade? The knowledge that I had fierce, strong-willed women as my ancestors and I can draw on their strength in my own life.
Can you tell us any interesting Irish history facts?
Like the Scots have family tartans, the Irish have intricate cable-knit patterns that represent a family. If an Irish fishing crew were lost to the sea, men could be identified by the pattern of their cable-knit sweaters.
Who or what inspires you most?
I get my inspiration from contemporary artist and historical crafters. I love learning new things about historical textiles and their creators, and then incorporating variations of their techniques into contemporary fashion.
Something about you that would surprise us:
I am a screen-printer and design many of the textiles in my collections.

A couple of days ago I plucked a long, coarse hair from my chin. I was appalled! I have no idea how long it had been there or if other people had seen it and were grossed out by it or had a few chuckles at my expense. I had been feeling something on my chin for a day or two but I thought it was a few acne bumps or something, but I was actually able to grab and pull it. As I headed to the mirror to have a look, I was shocked to see the hair hanging there. I immediately plucked it, put it in the palm of my hand, observed myself in the mirror, looked at the hair again in disbelief, dropped it in the sink, then ran the water to watch it flow out of my life. That damn hair had a lot of nerve! Am I a fool to think it will not return? Please, don’t answer that question.
I also thought it was hilarious because I think I am a pretty attractive woman and I take very good care of my skin and often go out of my way to look pretty and feminine. Facial hair on a woman is not what’s up (as the younger people say). Some men find facial hair on a woman to be sexy, but if I am turned off by something about myself I don’t give a damn what anyone else thinks about it.
Unfortunately, hairy women run in my family so it’s something I cannot escape. My grandmother had a full mustache and she used Nair often to get rid of it. She also had coarse chin whiskers. My mother also has the same issue and she’s a plucker and a waxer. I received laser hair removal on my mustache a few years ago and though it has helped to lessen the hair growth, a small mustache still appears occasionally and I immediately get rid of it by using a razor. I thought I had avoided the chin hair monster, but I just got a helluva reality check! My 9-year-old daughter, bless her heart, also has a mustache and hairy legs.
