Public Universal Enemy
Oh the ****hole town is where I'm living now. The place I was talking about with the people before who commented was my university city which was a different place. They weren't local people either so can't really comment on that. I guess that was also a weird place sometimes since I mostly lived around the city centre, so there was some weird stuff happening there occasionally too. I used to use hair removal cream. I only tried to shave my legs once but they just ended up with a bunch of cuts on them so I didn't try that again. I've never tried using an epilator but that does sound bad D: I think my mum has used one but can't remember her talking about that. I know waxing is painful as well.Yeah that makes sense. Formula ****hole town + 2010-14 = different experience from what I had in London in 2016. The society has gone far in these few decades. I remember the world when body positivity wasn't a thing (something like 2005). At the time I not only shaved my legs but also used an electric epilator to remove my forearm hair. I had to whack myself out on whisky to withstand the pain. Creepy times.
Re hair colour, it's probably the colour rather than your hair. Blue fades very fast. A few weeks and poof, it's gone, replaced with a dirty greenish shade. My hair takes to colour easily (it's fairly light) and blue doesn't last on me either. Doesn't last on anyone.
I never removed my forearm hair and now that you mention it a guy I knew at uni also compared our forearm hair lol. I don't have a lot of hair but I'm quite pale and my hair is pretty dark. But he made a bunch of comments about my gendered behaviour and stuff like that and he was kind of metrosexual but slightly traditional. In hindsight I find that kind of validating though. He found me boring to shop with because I wouldn't really buy any clothes and wasn't into most of the shops there, and he wanted me to wear dresses more and also was mildly irritated one time when I didn't understand that he was walking next to the road on purpose so I wouldn't have to (as some kind of weird gender role,) but I also saved him from a spider once and he posted that I was his hero on facebook. He got some jokey responses for that too like 'I imagine them carrying you out of the room bridal style' or something. (There's a lot of context here but it's increasingly off topic lol so not going into it all. I've posted about him too many times anyway.)
I dyed it lots of different colours but it would always fade pretty fast but it might be that I didn't leave it on long enough or something though. I think bright pink and red shades lasted longer. I often dyed it purple and I don't think that lasted as long.
