Eine kleine neue Feminismus-Welle rollt mt einigen Social-Media-Sternchen durch die Welt. Frauen zeigen seit einiger Zeit wieder ihre Achselbehaarung. Dabei ist weiterhin das vorherrschende Schönheitsideals die rasierte und glatte weibliche Haut. Ganz im Gegensatz zur verstärkten Behaarung bei Männern in den letzten Jahren, gerade unter den schwulen Hipstern, schockiert viele Frauen der Anblick dann doch noch.

Unrasierte Körperhaare wie Achselhöhlen oder Frauenbeine sind im Alltag unserer westlichen Welt dann eher selten bisher. Die rasierten Achselhöhlen und die glattrasierten Beine bei Frauen sind das Standardbild. Danach wird das Schönheitsideal in unserer Kultur bemessen. Das war aber nicht immer so. Die meisten Frauen in Europa und Amerika rasierten sich im 19.Jahrhundert nicht. Erst im 20. Jahrhundert wurde zuerst die Achselbehaarung als verpönt angesehen. Später erst sah man behaarte Frauenbeine auch als nicht feminin an.

Körperbehaarung bei Frauen ist fremd

Heutzutage beginnt für Frauen bereits im Teenageralter das ständige Rasieren der Beine und Achsel. Die amerikanische Fitness-Bloggerin Morgan Mikena widersetzt sich jetzt dem Trend. Sie möchte sich nach ihren Worten den sozialen Maßstäben nicht mehr unterordnen. Bereits vor mehr als einem Jahr hatte sie angefangen ihre Beine nicht mehr zu rasieren. Ihr perfekt durchtrainierter Körper ist mittlerweile in einigen Regionen von Körperhaaren übersät.

Social media has such a great potential to spread love/positivity and create a positive communication link to people all over the world. But sadly, a lot of the time it is a battle ground where insults fly back and forth. Spreading hatred for entertainment.. Words have the potential to heal or to hurt. People don’t realize how damaging social media can really be if used this way. It can destroy a persons self esteem and a persons sense of self worth. But on a positive note, I have connected with some really awesome people because of social media. Despite all the negativity that comes with it, there comes so much positivity/inspiration also. I am just feeling very thankful today for all of you who choose to spread kindness and uplift me and others every single day. I am so proud to have connected with like minded individuals who do what they love everyday and genuinely care. I appreciate you and I’m sure others do too. Thank you💜✨🌌🤘🏼#positivity #spreadlove #bethechange #selflove #gratitude #namaste #iloveyou #thankful #weareone #onelove #thankyou #changetheworld #alldoneup #nofilter #happystpattys

You don’t realize how far you’ve come until you look back at where it all started. The picture on the left was 2 years ago before I started getting into bodybuilding.. I was unhappy with many aspects of my life, mentally and physically.. I decided it was time for change… and never looked back. The picture on the right is me currently.. the same bikini, but happier/healthier/hairier me:) I am a completely new person inside and out, and I could not be more proud of myself.☺😌 Gaining muscle takes time, discipline, dedication, patience, and most of all consistency. Your are not going to see instant results and it’s not going to happen overnight.. It is a long process.. BUT if you keep with it you can achieve anything you set your mind to!💗😎#fitness #fitnessjourney #namaste #spreadlove #change #abs #dedication #challenge #healthylifestyle #healthy #happy #consistency #bodypositive #goals #positivity #inspiration #bethechange #calisthenics #hairywomen #fitnessmotivation #getfit #loveyourself #transformation #bodybuilding #inspireothers #dreambig #fuzzy #bodyhairdontcare

„There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.“~Steve Maraboli 🌸✨ Not just woman, but everyone! Imagine if everyone just decided that today was the day they loved themselves and embraced every part of them selves. Accepting and loving your body and your „flaws“ because you know they are what makes you who you are. If you are focused on being true to yourself in every moment, you are less concerned what others think, which will lead to peace of mind. When you have nothing to hide and you can freely be yourself, there is a profound peace/confidence you will emanate to the world that will inspire others. ✨💝🤘🏼I also just posted a new YouTube video on why I don’t shave my body hair and how it helped me(link in bio)☺ #bodypositive #spreadlove #behappy #namaste #hairywomen #healing #healthylifestyle #selfcare #loveyourself #beyourself #bethechange #divine #inspireothers #inspirationalquotes #positivity #goodvibesonly #lifeisbeautiful #hairy #gratitude #weareone #higherconsciousness #freespirit #empowerment #smile #feelgood

This is my beautiful friend @earthhands_ What she does with her social media is something I aspire to be/do with mine as well:) She is an artist of all kinds and is one of the most kindest/genuine humans I’ve had the pleasure of connecting with. Her words and actions inspire me to be a better person everyday!:) Check her out!🤘🏼💙 „M Y D E A R E S T Y O U ✨One of my goals for this platform was for it to be completely honest and raw. I truly believe that we need more of that in this world. We need the good and the bad. The light and the dark. And the path in between. Last night there was this buildup in my heart, a bit from the chilly weather, a bit from my exhaustion from the day and a bit from some judgements I had of myself. It was a pretty amazing journey however, because even at the moment when the sadness began, I recognized it there and had immediate compassion for it. I was completely with it, and felt every part of it. Whereas in the past, I would have shoved it away and distracted myself, or if I didn’t do that and actually let myself feel it, I would have judged and ridiculed myself and it would have turned into a downwards spiral. When I finally broke down (in the arms of a beloved dear human), I freed myself of all thoughts rooted in fear. I became one with the present again and became one with what WAS instead of what WASN’T. It is important that we are our number one fan and love ourselves unconditionally, even when we are feeling down. This is when we need our own love the most. Remember that your mental and emotional health are so incredibly important, and they deserve your love and attention. When we feel our pains, that is where we truly grow the most. Reflecting on how far you’ve come boosts self-confidence and gives you courage. Pay ode to the beauty and light of your being, always. Much love to you all, beautiful people.“ #spreadlove #positivity #inspireothers #bethechange #beautiful #unity #inspiration #goodvibesonly #wordsofwisdom #word #goddess #bodyhairdontcare #bodypositive #weareone #onelove #selfcare #mindfulness #smile
