I've been thinking a lot about what I wanted to share, what was the most important message for me to share. I've looked at the portrait every day, from the day I got it. To this day it warms my heart. There is so much diversity in vulvas which is such a beautiful thing.
Being a ginger, I remember the first time someone asked me if the carpet matched the drapes, called me fire crotch and had some prenotion about my sexual desires because of the color of my head- and pubic hair. This had me believing that there was something wrong with me and my pubic hair for years. I even questioned if my sexual desires were wrong because they didn't align with the color of my pubic hair. Looking at this portrait every day reminds me that I am golden.
