Here's an odd vanishing. What's conspicuously missing from both of these Meatpacking area advertisements?
If you guessed pubic hair, you're right.
The male body, especially, doesn't look shaved, it looks partly erased. And possibly castrated in the process. The female body looks kind of like a smooth egg. The V shape of the tan line suggests a pubic mons, but without the unruliness.
Yunnies not only strive to Jonesify their surroundings, they Jonesify their bodies, too. No dirt, no fat, no hair, no age. No chaos and nothing out of control. Like robots. Like glass condos. Hard, smooth, cool, and streamlined.
And now they're doing it to little girls.
This salon offers "'Virgin'-waxing for children 8 years old and up who have never shaved before. Virgin hair can be waxed so successfully that growth can be permanently stopped in just 2 to 6 sessions. Save your child a lifetime of waxing... and put the money in the bank for her college education instead! Ask about our special children's prices."
The Post reports that salons all over the city are seeing hundreds of moms signing up their daughters for this procedure. And according to this extensive story in Philadelphia, it's happening there, too, where pediatricians can't remember the last time they saw pubic hair on pubescent girls, and narcissism is getting a leg up on the next generation.
Last I heard, genital mutilation was illegal in this country. Here's the number to call for Child Protective Services: 1-800-342-3720.
