“Does the white man understand our custom about land?” “How can he when he does not even speak our tongue? But he says that our customs are bad; and our own brothers who have taken up his religion also say that our customs are bad. How do you think we can fight when our own brothers have turned against us? The white man is very clever. He came quietly and peaceably with his religion. We were amused at his foolishness and allowed him to stay. Now he has won our brothers, and our clan can no longer act like one. He has put a knife on the things that held us together and we have fallen apart.”—Chinua Achebe, Things Fall Apart (via nigerianostalgia)

I just wanted to elaborate further to the beautiful young lady. Darling you're a product of divine law. There's no being walking this planet that can take that away from you. No one can take away or add to your value. The only thing they can do is get you to believe and agree with their ignorant lies. Physically speaking, you are of the same source as the stars, the beautiful mountains and the deep blue oceans. You exist because you're worthy of existence, just as is everyone else. Remind urself
Please reblog if you’re a girl and you don’t shave your legs/arm pits, or you’re a girl who does shave her legs/arm pits, but doesn’t think any the less of others that do not or if you’re a guy who doesn’t care if a girl shaves or not.
If I get enough reblogs, I’ll show this to her, and maybe it will be enough to convince her to stop telling me to be ashamed of my body’s natural functions just because I’m a girl.
