I’ve had this piercing for about 2 months now but it’s been rejected for about 1 month. Now, I don’t know if this make a difference but it’s a tragus piercing (Absolutely love it!). I’ve had piercings reject before but usually TeaTree Oil/Ointment works within a week. I clean it daily but is there anything else that makes rejections go away.
Also, help me pick a new URL.

When it comes to piercings (especially cartilage ones) you never want to use oils like tea tree oil. The absolute best is a saline wash, dissolve some salt in hot water and soak the piercing in it with a cotton ball. Once or twice a day.
Tragus piercings are usually rather quick to heal, so it’s a bit odd. Maybe stop by whoever pierced it for a check up?
“Let’s make one thing clear: I’m not talking about offense. Someone takes a shit on the rug, that’s offensive. What I’m talking about is oppression. It starts small and grows into something big. Slurs, invalidation, erasure, discrimination, murder, genocide. It doesn’t matter if I’m calling out the big things or the little things; they all have the same end result. And it has nothing to do with offense.”—(via amydentata)
How about we stop trying to define what a “Real Woman” is supposed to be & pay attention to the women who are…
I don’t mind you asking. It mostly upsets me that she wrote “Real women have curves.” It seems that her idea was to knock down societies idea of what a woman should look like, and I totally understand that, but she caste out a whole group of women in an attempt to do so. I don’t think it’s fair that she is telling me, indirectly, that I am not a real woman because I don’t have huge breasts or a huge ass. That’s hurtful, whether she meant it or not.
I think you’ve totally misunderstood the post, and the general idea behind it. The post is pointing out the faults in bringing down other body types in order to glorify another. A woman is a woman, weight, appearance, and interests aside.
This post isn’t telling you that you’re not a woman, but rather you are whatever you want to be. I don’t have huge breasts or huge anything and I’m a woman. Someone who has huge breasts and ass is also a woman if they identify as one.
Maybe read it again?
