Check this out, people:
My name is Caroline*, I’m 20 years old. I stumbled upon your blog, literally on Stumble Upon, and I have to say that I really liked it. It was refreshing to see someone say that pubic hair was okay. I then realized that I have no idea what I even look like with hair, i’ve been shaving since I ever started growing hair at around 12. I shaved even though it hurt and was super uncomfortable when it grew back. I decided that I’m going to go ahead and let it grow! I’m super curious now as to what it looks like on me.Who knows, maybe I’ll prefer it haha but anyway I just wanted to thank you for helping me realize that it is okay to be natural, and even though I don’t always accept this I feel like I am on my way.
Your now faithful reader,
Caroline*, Los Angeles, California.

Let me tell you — I was so thrilled to get this note.
I love love love the idea that one young woman is feeling empowered enough to start to question the messages she’s been internalizing since she was a kid.
I can’t wait to hear how Caroline’s experiment goes. She promised to keep me posted — if she’s ok with my sharing, I’ll pass details on to you…
