“If a state institutes a policy of banning body modifications (generally piercings) in schools, they leave “young modders” with an unpleasant choice: cease to exist as modified people, or be expelled from the school system to fend in the world without an education. To take away someone’s basic right to an education over a piercing or tattoo makes a powerful statement: the government viewpoint is that we do not in fact own our bodies or have authority over them, and that the government holds the sole rights to dictate what happens to your body.”—Shannon Larratt (via cloveflowers)

The word gauge came about because you know the small plugs and tunnels you put in your ears? 0g 2g 4g and so on as they get smaller well first the ‘g’ stands for gauge.

So, PLEASE just because somebody calls them gauges doesn’t give you the right to criticize or make fun of them. They are just as correct as you are
