The Politics of Shame and Pride | Olivia Wilson:

“Shame is about enforcing the rules we don’t have written. Female body hair, male impotence, helpless dependence, obesity, age. Think of all the things we work hard to pretend aren’t there, to cover up or to dismiss in others. Hiding an addiction, shaving, makeup, bravado.”
