WANG opposes valuing women based on how they look, rather than who they are and what they do. WANG also opposes the prohibitive and narrow beauty standards imposed on women that reflect racist, heteronormative, capitalist, sexist, ageist, cissexist and disableist ideologies.
Women everywhere are expected to conform: to remove their body hair, to wear make-up yet look ‘natural’. To diet, and to wear restrictive clothing. All in order to be considered acceptable, respectable and feminine. If you support women's choice to refuse these regulatory practices, then join WANG! It's not just for the unshaven and undeodorised but for anyone who believes that women shouldn't be reduced to how they look and that women do not need to be conventionally beautiful to be attractive. We are much more than our beauty, and the beauty we have is manifold. People of any/no gender are welcome too, and we support all struggles against the pressure to conform to hegemonic representations.

Glad you do!
*doh* didn’t realise my looks and weight were something I had to justify…
On the plus side, if I annoy people who think ‘ugly’ and ‘fat’ are insults, i must be doing something right!
If you can’t think beyond “chocolate eyes” or “brown orbs,” to match “cerulean orbs” or “emerald eyes,” then you need to do better.
The fact that this post already has over 50 notes is saying a lot.
Hey writers! It takes THREE shades to make brown, so think about what went in to make it. Brown is the eye color with the most variation in humans, so there is no excuse.
Ooh, it’s true. Like if you ever fiddled around with the colors in MS paint, brown is somewhere between red, yellow, and grey. So some browns that are closer to grey are cool browns, and browns closer to red or yellow are warm browns… reddish browns are chestnut brown, cinnamon, mahogany, amber, a mixture of red and yellow makes golden brown and honey colored eyes, lighter browns closer to yellow can be hazel, champagne colored. There’s soft grey browns, too. Lots of variation in brown.
