Arizona Professor Offers Extra Credit To Female Students Who Stop Shaving Their Armpits | Think Progress
Putting down your razor can lift your G.P.A. at Arizona State University.
Professor Breanne Fahs offers female students extra-credit if they “stop shaving their legs and underarms for ten weeks during the semester while keeping a journal to document their experiences.” For Fahs, who teaches women and gender studies, the purpose is to get students thinking critically about societal norms and gender roles.
A similar opportunity is available to men in Fahs’ classes who recieve extra credit for shaving all of their hair from the neck down.
One student, Stephanie Robinson, described it as a “life-changing experience“:

Many of my friends didn’t want to work out next to me or hear about the assignment, and my mother was distraught at the idea that I would be getting married in a white dress with armpit hair. I also noticed the looks on faces of strangers and people around campus who seemed utterly disgusted by my body hair. It definitely made me realize that if you’re not strictly adhering to socially prescribed gender roles, your body becomes a site for contestation and public opinion.

Men seemed to have an easier time with it since some degree of “manscaping” has become accepted, or even expected.
The norm of women shaving body hair dates back to an effort by Gillette to expand their market for razors. Starting around 1915, Gillette started a campaign “denouncing the (previously inoffensive) female underarm hair as ‘unsightly’, ‘masculine’ and ‘unclean’.” In the 1920s, they expanded their efforts to leg hair, glamorizing “a smooth, silky leg.”
Still, “[b]efore the first world war, virtually no American woman shaved her legs. By 1964, 98% of women under the age of 44 did so.”
In 2010, Mo’Nique created a minor stir by appearing at the Golden Globes with unshaven legs. This year some celebrities, including Cameron Diaz, have been speaking out for more tolerance for women’s choices.
Fahs received an award from the American Psychological Association in recognition of her program and has been contacted by “faculty members at other universities are considering using the exercise in their classes.”

what if people’s hair changed color based on their emotions

like one day you’re out getting a cup of coffee and you notice some cutie in the back of the coffeeshop and your hair starts turning bright pink and you do you best to try to hide it but you can’t help but look over and

they’re just sitting there, staring at you, their face as flushed as their locks

so i went to download the hack and i believe i did everything correctly but when i clicked on the female character, it opened up a "downloads" folder and i wasnt sure what to do from there because it wasnt part of your steps

Sorry, this post wasn’t mine and I’m unable to help anyone with problems. Please ask through-the-dimensions.tumblr.com for some help. I had to copy and paste to reblog or it cut the steps short so you couldn’t see them all. I’m not the original poster, sorry you ran into problems.

For anybody else, I’m deleting the post from my blog because it’s messing up my view count, I cannot answer any of your questions, and honestly I got to the A list in less than a day after the hack and the game has gotten a little stale. Good luck with trying the hack, my only advice is follow the steps EXACTLY as they are written if you want it to work.

THIS IS AMAZING SPREAD THE WORD

Someone told me I look good in every hair color and that was so sweet. Although so far they’ve only seen pink, crimson, purple and blue. We don’t know if I look good in green hair… yet. I’ve never been able to pull off blonde though. I blame my black eyebrows.

Oh, had a dream I lost weight, looked awesome, had black hair, and made jewelry for a living. I’m having the craziest, most imaginative dreams of my life recently. I should start writing them on my blog because dreams/brains are so weird and neat.
