Inspired by the CRASS song, “Shaved Women.”

There is this weird set of dots that connects animal testing for cosmetics to shaving pussies for ease of use prompted by porn. I personally find this to be offensive and patriarchal. Tart feminism is just another patriarchal construct to me. So, yeah, yeah, yeah, your power is in your pussy, but only if you take ownership of it and stop capitulating it just to look good in what Madison Avenue deems is socially and sexually acceptable.
