Feminists Declare Unibrow Unity in 'Decembrow'
AOLNEWS.Com ^ | 12/9/2010

Posted on 12/09/2010 10:31:32 AM PST by llevrok

Things are getting hairy in women's facial fashion -- but it's all in the name of charity.

That's because this month has been declared "Decembrow" by the feminist-oriented website Feministing, and women are encouraged to grow out their eyebrows to the point where they connect in the middle.

Much in the same way that men grow mustaches in "Movember" to raise money and awareness for prostate cancer, Decembrow participants are asked to get pledges and donations for their own pet causes while growing brows that would make hirsute Mexican painter Frida Kahlo proud.

For instance, Lori Adelman -- who coined the term "Decembrow" -- is donating the money she raises to the International Women's Health Coalition, an organization that advocates for women's health, sexual and reproductive rights.

Two separate things inspired Adelman to create Decembrow. The first was, of course, Movember.

"Many of my guy friends participated in 'Movember,' which is a great initiative," she told AOL News. "It's a great way to get people involved -- but most women are unable to grow mustaches."

The other inspiration came from, of all places, Tajikistan, after Adelman read an article in the Global Post about how "unibrows" are the latest trend in that country. In fact, some women in Tajikistan whose brows aren't bushy enough are resorting to herbal remedies or eyebrow pencils in order to get up to a socially acceptable level.

(snip) This is a subject that interests Adelman very much, as a great deal of her writing addresses cultural standards that create a less-than-healthy body image for women and girls.

"We all could benefit from being open-minded about looks," she said. "I see [Decembrow] as a lighthearted and playful way of bringing attention to the way cultural ideas of beauty affect all of us."

I run from women who pluck out their eyebrows! They are always unsettled and well, nuts. In most cases they perm their hair, color it, highlight it, cut it, and then complain they don't know what to do with it at the end point.

Ladies, let the eye wool, eyelashes, hair, and yes even the little patch of lawn, do as they wish. Women who can leave things alone have a sense of beauty all their own. Soap, water, and a hairbrush are my only limited demands of a woman's look.

Well Joe I was thinking more along the lines of that “woman” Frau dated in one of the Austin Powers movies. In fact I believe her name was “unibrow” or something like that.

Oh, where to gaze next? The unibrow? The yellow teeth?

My eyes linger upon those beautiful features, yes — but they lovingly SETTLE upon the giant pus-filled zit.

My daughters used to harp on me mercilessly: "Dad, your eyebrows look like mating tarantualas." At which point they would grab comb, sissors, and clippers and pare everything back.

I trim them when my glasses won't stay on. ;)

Deborah Mitford is still alive (born 1920). She's a duchess.
Unity died in 1948 (she lingered for years after shooting herself in Berlin when England went to war against her beloved Hitler).
Diana died just a few years ago. She outlived her Fascist husband Oswald Mosley by quite a few years.

The other Mitford sisters were slightly less colorful.

Maybe often true, but there are exceptions. I have a pair of nieces who are very attractive and don't primp excessively. However, their main cosmetic focus is thinning the unibrows they would naturally have... and I mean bushy straight across. I don't blame them a bit.

Unfortunately, in the interests of family harmony, there will be no pics offered as proof.

"mating Tarantulas" ....ha ha ha ha ha ROFL!!!!

I'm going to steal that one, the next time my wife gives me crap about my eyebrows.

FWIW, I keep threatening her that I'm going to grow them out and comb them up over my bald spot.

Are unibrows a sign of a feminist? Is that the genetic marker that would go along with the liberal gene? Or would it just be hairy women?

I have never cut or plucked my eyebrows and I have never had a unibrow or bushy eyebrows.
