In my case, it's because of my short my short hair and because I'm a ridiculous, unlovable harpy. :(

@dracula's ghost I have three everyday bras and two sports bras. Due to my size, that's about all I can afford (stupid expensive necessary supportive bras ;_;). I try to leave buying new ones for as long as I can - about every two years generally. The day I have a whole drawerful of bras is the day I know I've made it.
@dracula's ghost ahhh i'm sold, i'm gonna try this. simple, good for the environment, cheap, natural, can't resist despite sense of foreboding. thank you for the advice (i THINK! dun dun DUN).
I love this so so so much. Salve on the horrible burn of that stupid original Martha and all of her stupid crap article

Martha's dogs have their own garden shed. It's where they hide when they think she might bite them in the face.
@dracula's ghost She's got a LOT of money -- who says her bathroom cabinet doesn't have its own garden shed?
@Ellie Well, if it requires a serious answer, it's that 1) she put herself up to be ridiculed when she posted that picture and that response, 2) it's not just that she's not taking third world women and the lactose intolerant into account, she's making it sound like everyone who doesn't have her body is a bad person who is just making excuses, and 3) the picture's implication that having a great body is the most important thing to focus on, rather than the other things that make us interesting people, and that those other things are just "excuses" for not being hot, is profoundly anti-feminist.
I'll send her a picture of my degrees and my paycheque and my bookclub and my fucking liberation.
@dracula's ghost : OH MY GOD
When Pa survives on Christmas candy during the blizzard
When Laura boards in the house with the BATSHITINSANE family while she's teaching school
When Laura THUMP thump THUMPS her desk to get back at Eliza for bullying Carrie (because "not for nothing did Pa describe Laura to be as strong as a French pony")
(God, I loved her in that section!)
