Welcome. I’m a radical feminist who blogs about her life, patriarchy and miscellanea. I’m also an Australian, a teenager, an atheist and a dog lover.

Being a feminist is easy, acting out feminism is less so. Just as seeing patriarchy is easy when compared to speaking up about it. It is my hope that enough people will speak up and that enough people will listen.

My name is the literal truth, I am very hairy. I am also identified as female under the patriarchy, so feel free to think me disgusting. I won’t particularly care.



  1. 🙂

    Your description so reminds me of someone I knew in Fashion school. I like your straightforwardness.

    Teenage can be difficult( at least mine was), so hang in there!


  2. Welcome to the ozfemiblogosphere!

  3. Thank you 🙂

  4. Yes, hi there Hellon!

    *oneofus, oneofus, oneofus*

    Have fun with tossing out the opinions.

  5. Hi Hellon, got here via the Hoydens, yay for aussie feministas!

  6. Like your blog, very well written for a teen age person. You should twitter – you’d find a lot of people who share your philosophy, angst and who would read your blog. G’Day

  7. You seem like a nice person. I am with feminists because I am a girl, and I beleive in our rights.

  8. Congratulations!

    Be careful when discussing France/French or European/Asian countries – the Cultural Imperialism Bingo is useful there

  9. Thanks for the kind words.

    I’ll check out the cultural imperialism bingo now Anastasiya. 🙂

  10. Thank you for being kind to me

    I have suffered a lot from Australian people who can’t get beyond the “Russian wh*re” and “mail order bride” stereotypes – when they are not doing the “Commie” one

    Of course when we still lived there i suffered a lot just because i was female

  11. I don’t need thanks for acting like a human being. It is appalling that people can get away with treating you like that. Patriarchy is horrible worldwide.

    Good luck.

  12. Back in Russia i was made to suffer a lot
    I wish you had a email on here so we could talk about it privately

  13. I wish I’d been as confident and eloquent as you when I was in high school. After three years at a decidedly liberal college, I’m still a little behind!

  14. My dog and I salute both you and your hairy legs.

    If you ever find yourself in Tazzy, feel free to look us up.

  15. “My name is the literal truth, I am very hairy. I am also identified as female under the patriarchy, so feel free to think me disgusting. I won’t particularly care.”

    Love it! Kudos to you.

  16. So…

    I am pretty sure you are the most awesome teenage girl I have ever (read?) about!

    You’re so smart!! Once you hit college you will be surrounded with tons of amazing feminist just like yourself.

    I love how aware and intelligent your posts are. I wish I was as cool are you are when I was in High School!!!

    you rock!

  17. high school fucking sucks. gl getting into the uni you want \o/

  18. Hi there Hellon,

    I am also an Australian atheist who would love dogs were her boyfriend not allergic :). I’m a few years out of high school by now, but rest assured university holds roughly the same levels of suckage. However, it does come with a Women’s Room!

    All the best


  19. Hi Hairy Teen,

    Just wanted to thank you for your entertaining blog. We (mother & 14 year-old daughter) both really enjoyed reading your entries.

    (We too are hairy feminists and science fiction nerds.)

  20. I really like your banner picture. looks like my legs too!

  21. Thanks everyone. It means so much to me to have so many people writing nice things.

  22. Hi, I just want to say that I really like your blog. I wish I was as intelligent and confident as you when I was in high school. I started a blog recently so I’ll link to yours if you don’t mind. 🙂

  23. Thanks antithodoxy! I appreciate all linkages. Good luck with your blog.

  24. When did hairiness become unfeminine? We have less and finer hair than men; isn’t that enough?

  25. Nope. No matter what a woman does to improve her appearance, it will never be enough. There will always be something to shave, wax, pluck, trim, inject, primp, curl, straighten, paint, cut and pierce.

    As to when hairiness became unfeminine, hmmm, I actually have no idea. I guess it was part of the trend to infantilise women. I’ll research it and see what I can find. Welcome to the blog Ala.

  26. Hello, I’m an athiest Australian old man and I am also very hairy so we have many things in common. If feminism means that what rude bits you have has nothing to do with anythingelse than I am a feminist too. Hello,

  27. Hello Paul. Welcome (I think).

  28. I haven’t shaved my legs in months. Though I must admit, this has less to do with a feminist stand point and more with laziness. But don’t tell anyone 😉
    Love your tag line (I’m praying for you too. God tells me she isn’t too happy.) Brilliant.

  29. I find laziness is a good barrier against any shaving desires. Who has the time?

  30. Love the new theme and header.

  31. Thanks for leaving a comment on my Buffy post. Can I add you to my blogroll?

  32. Sure 🙂
