cheekymama hello from a newbie15th-Jul-2004 11:20 pm (UTC)
Hiya all.
Im Michelle, from Oregon, and I love my vagina. *grins* sounds like the opening to a 12 step program...anyway, Hey its really nice to see vagina friendly stuff out here in cyber land. I recently found www.allaboutmyvagina.com and OMG SO cool. So, Im here today, because Ive got a question. this question was asked on another supposedly vagina/female/friendly chat site, but it was laughed out of there like it was really stupid. Ill try it here... My daughter is going to have her menarche soon. shes young, almost 11 years old, but the signs are here...she gets crampy, her boobs are developing, shes got hair down below(did I leave out the ATTITUDE?).Anyway are there any traditions, or celebratory rituals anyone knows of, that I can plan for when she does start? I would like to make it a neat little something she will remember. Nothing to scare her mind you...no painting of the fluids or anything, just something interesting to make it a celebration.

When I got my first period, my mom took me shopping and let me get a few of the things I didnt have when I was younger. Like make up and underwear that didnt come in a package of 6.
majorfred Well, hello there...17th-Jul-2004 12:23 am (UTC)
I'm Major Fred, (aka Mary) from Northern California. 36yo old-school feminist mother of 2; married 13 years now. I found this page by way of the community womenhealth. I began searching because I have a reproductive health issue that I cannot seem to navigate, which is kind of unusual for me, but also because I appreciate so much when there are resources for women to understand and appreciate their bodies. This community seems rich with interesting members; I will probably spend a lot of time getting to know as many as I can.

My name is Jael, though I go by various nicknames such as Jojo or J and others. I'm currently 19 and attending the University of Kansas studying journalism and anthropology. I've loved my vagina for years in secret, but that's mostly because my earlier years were spent in a tough Catholic household. Now that my mother has divorced she's sort of taken a more empowered-woman approach to life and thus the household has been "liberated". (Leave it to happen after I move out, of course. ;))

Anyway, was directed to this community by a friend and after reading many things and browsing archives I've decided this is definitely a community for me. Feel free to hit up my journal or messengers/email for chat (info is listed in my LJ profile), because I love talking with and meeting new people who share my strange interests. ;) Yay vaginas!

I'm a late teen...I found this community by going through random livejournals. I've been looking for some answers to things and this seems to have it. I've been looking for communities for my well being, kind of main-stays where I can't be judged.

Hello. Name's Leah, I'm eighteen (very recently, woohoo), and about to enter the fabulous world of college in a few weeks.

Er.

A friend recommended this community to me, and I must say I enjoy it very much, and I'm glad to see a whole community of open minded people who can share tips and info and support with each other. I love a place that can help people feel good about themselves.

Yay.

My name is Amelia. I'm 18, about to start college, Pagan, bisexual, and proud owner of a yoni. My dear friend scarletdulcinea suggested that I join, and so I did.

I promise I'm more interesting than this comment would seem to indicate.
lunaticalm 9th-Aug-2004 04:19 am (UTC)
Hi everyone! I am lunaticalm 20 years old from the Philippines. I have a boyfriend and we've been together for a year and almost two months already. Since I read Eve Ensler's Vagina Monologues back in 2002 and Woman: an Intimate Geography by Natalie Angier my love for vaginas (mine as well) heightened. Every woman must explore their body because only then will they discover the essence and beauty of being a woman. There are those who haven't even seen or touched their vaginas. It's like a hidden treasure waiting to be discovered. The vagina is beautiful and precious. To the women, las mujeres out there... love your vulvas! And love your body too no matter shape and size you are. Each woman is a unique and beautiful creation. I must admit my self-esteem is low because I'm not exactly a thin or skinny girl but I am slowly beginning my journey of self-acceptance.
squirrel_queen kinda curious...19th-Aug-2004 02:47 pm (UTC)
high. i'm 20, and just got my first yeast infection. ick. i also just went to a gyno for the first time, which was interesting.

i was just looking for a place where i could ask questions about eh yeast, and came accross this.

i also have no idea how to go about joining, but would like to be part of this community. i'm trying to learn how to be an adult woman, since there's really no recource for that in this society, and thought that this sight looked like a good place to start.

thanks -ginger
steaphany Hi Hi From Texas26th-Aug-2004 03:17 pm (UTC)
I'm 47 and a single lesbian intersexed country gal. I live on my 67 acre ranch just out side the tiny town of Loving Texas where I have 7 Horses, Patty, Ashlene, Geoffrey, Ginger, Heather, Suzy and Waco, some Parrots, and a Dog. My work is in electronic and computer engineering where I am doing product development from my home. A friend suggested that I join because I'm having body acceptance problems which stem from being intersexed.

I'm comfortable and open about myself otherwise so I have no problms talking about myself or my circumstances.

Love,

Steaphany
lettucequeen Hi all!30th-Aug-2004 01:42 pm (UTC)
I'm 21 years old. I'm a senior in college (working towards a BA in biology) and I hope to get a job in applied ethology. I'm childfree, but will be getting married in 2009. I already have a question. Where the heck is the post new topic button for this site?
awallens an introduction31st-Aug-2004 05:03 am (UTC)
Hi all, I just thought I would intro myself. I am a 22 year old college student from Ohio, originally from South Dakota. My vagina was never really talked about when I was young, so I'm trying to get over that and be possitive about it... After all, it's mine! I have had some very bad experiences, sexually, so that didn't help matters. For more info about me, feel free to friend me. Thanks ladies!

hey all
My name is Maddy, I'm 18, currently a student at Vassar college, but from Minnesota originally. One of my friends has raved about this community for a long time. Now that I'm in college, I have tons of time to procrastinate on the internet, so I'm finally joining all the communities I've read off-and-on previously.
