broadist

Women are coerced into hair removal, indoctrinated by society to see it as a necessity. They are making decisions as to what type of razor they use, whether they use cream or wax, whether they get a professional to do it, but these are secondary decisions; the initial choice is whether to remove hair at all, and this decision was made by someone else, long ago, with little thought as to our best intentions. Along with the decisions about whether body hair is attractive, or hygienic. Of course, we all have personal preference, but when every channel in society tells you that body hair is repulsive, there is only one conclusion to come to. It is near-impossible to have a true preference. And until women are no longer chastised, mocked, and insulted for their body hair, we cannot say that we have that choice.

MUHLENBERG, hello again

Do you go to Muhlenberg College? Or to school in the Lehigh Valley? If you’d like to come say hi I will be there Friday March 28 from 9:30-2 for Media & Communication Alumni Week. Let’s talk about post-grad vibes, the (indie) music industry, college radio, how expensive New York really is, patriarchy smashing, etc.

It made my day to discover this hidden amongst the broadist tags. We will be warm again, I swear. (PS this bathing suit is from Shabby Apple not Modcloth though the latter has some of my favorite swimwear). Shades are from Crossroads Trading Co.

  • cropped gingham button down: Fred Perry surplus store in Williamsburg
  • BDG jeans: Urban Outfitters
  • VANS high-tops: swapped with my roommate, Katelyn
  • American Apparel backpack
  • Quay Eyewear ‘Kitti’ shades

These are the dregs of sxsw, clutching my beer for dear life.

two black slips: Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters
VANS high-tops: swapped with my roommate, Katelyn
vintage denim vest: thrifted at Salvation Army
black HUE tights: thanks, Mom, my tights dealer
pins: KEXP and Planned Parenthood forever
Idk what fatbeyonce420 is wearing but I know the dress is from Asos and I’m certain she looks perfect
I returned from Texas last night and slept for a long time, and now I’m drinking tea and thinking about all the shit that happened this past week. Despite seeing countless bands and friends (for which I’m super grateful), the events were overshadowed by the horrible tragedy only 3 blocks from where I was staying. I’m so sorry for all my friends who witnessed it and even sorrier for those killed and injured. It was really sad and weird to continue taking meetings and going to shows, and I’m still processing the context of everything.
All I got right now is “please don’t drink and drive.” Like, ever.

I don’t really know anything about roller derby but I do know quite a few people who participate. The raddest of all is my friend Megan, who lives in LA and is a proud member of the LA Derby Dolls. Founded in April 2003, the league has more than 150 adult skaters, 130 junior skaters (ages 7 to 17), and hundreds of volunteers and support staff. They’ve been a part of the LA community for 10+ years but unfortunately their practice space - the Doll Factory - is slated for demolition due to development in the area.
The LA Derby Dolls launched an IndieGogo campaign to help move to a new space, and you can read more about it by clicking through the photo above. Sweaty broads ftw.
