Fuck shaving by lonelycrow Fuck shaving by lonelycrow
Why should we have to shave to be more "beautiful"?

I for one don't think body hair makes someone less attractive, although I have my preferences in which I like more, but that has nothing to do with any beauty standards dictated by society, it's my own personal taste =).

No flaming, please. But your opinion on the subject is always welcome!

Making it so women have to shave only reinforces the fact that society says women cannot be beautiful and natural at the same time.

legs- yes
armpits - get stenchy if they don't get shaved and I've even thought about sweating.
Although I do like the feel of freshly shaved legs against clean sheets.

I really hate shaving! But at least I don't have to shave armpit or legs.

I only do it when I have to wear shorts, I find it useless to shave during winter when I only wear long pants.

I kinda wish I could not shave, but if I don't, I'll feel disgusted with myself.

I personally like to shave. I don't think it's attractive, and I hate the feel of hair on my legs. But to each her own.

I could not agree more! I mean. I'm a butch of all butchs here, and I mean - WHO THE HELL AM I TRYING TO IMPRESS? Fuck - certainly not anyone around here, besides. If you can't take me for WHO I am, then screw you. >.>;;

Though - I don't go around like a wholly mammoth. XD; [/dies laughing.] Ah, but, still. I shave when I feel like it. I don't wear skirts/shorts - so I save people from looking at my hideous body. xD Besides - all my hair on my body is like... TRANSPARENT. So it's not like you can see it from where a normal person would stand. You'd have to be looking for it.

But. Seriously. |: I hate the "beauty" standards of today. I mean... I want my girl to be a guy! I don't want her to be afraid of "breaking a nail" or something like that. But - like you said, it is all based on personal preference.

Honestly - if any guy happens to read this. Why do most guys go after the skinny preppy girls? I mean... You guys virtually have nothing in common with. That is like a garden hose and a rock trying to make a relationship work. And yes - sometimes it does, but I mean. Wouldn't you rather have a chick who is into gaming - cars - and shit? [/shrugs.] I guess that question is like the tootsie pop question. The world may never know.

[/end long rambly comment.]

I often prefer the look of shaved people, but it definitely shouldn't be something that people act like you HAVE to do, and like it's a complete turn-off if someone doesn't shave. I personally even like variety. Shave sometimes, don't shave others. Like how people try different hairstyles or clothing.

I like the bluntness of this. :lol:

I think it's okay to have body hair, I just personally prefer to shave, 'cause my legs get smooth and hair in other places can get itchy sometimes. (: Anyways, keep up the good work, and don't let anyone tell you what to do.

i like shaving. somtimes my arm hair freeks me out like "I have to much hair here and on my knees somtimes is wrong with my hormones"

then there is the idea that armpit hair makes things stinkier.

is it true? I don't know, for some reason body hair makes me go "erjk". I guess because it is not nice. it is not pretty like fur and can seem gangly and hetict. like it dosen't know what to do.

but we are mammals and are supposed to have many hairs, because we are not whales.

XD. this also counts for man-hair to.

Armpit hair doesn't get stinkier, but because it makes you more warm (which is the reason why we have body hair in the first place), you get more sweaty when you have armpit hair. :O It also gets kinda itchy... =\

I like shaving because I like the way I look that way, but I think it's stupid that girls feel the pressure to shave to be "beautiful".

Who DOESN'T appreciate the feel of baby-smooth skin? The thing is, we aren't infants, anymore, and we need to accept the fact that we're mammals, and mammals have hair.

Ha ha yeeeah! Honestly I think lady hair is unattractive, but for fuck's sake I am not going to shave unless I know damn well I'll be wearing shorts. I just hate how people are all judgmental when I tell them I haven't shaved for months.

Ditto! When I wear shorts though, and I did shave, I like to constantly stroke them and rub them together. Feels nice <3

I tried shaving my legs and once no hair came off. I think I need a better razor. I didn't cut myself I got no hair. I was then going to tell anyone who would say something "dude I'm going with the __________ look' or "fine, you buy me a better razor, all of mine broke while shaving"

Interestingly enough, people haven't keyed in on the fact that I don't shave my legs. No weird looks or anything, and my leg hair isn't all that light.

It really doesn't look nice at all when it's coming it, but after it's reached its natural length, it looks all right. Several of my male friends have said as much on separate occasions.

Anyone who wants to give you grief about not shaving can run a razor over their own skin.

True that! I've gone out in shorts without bothering and I haven't had THAT many looks but I personally really like rubbing my legs together after a shave. It just feels so nice. I did see one girl with natural length leg hair and she looked pretty alright, so I understand what you mean.

Well yes, I'm all for free choice: If you don't feel like to, don't do it. Never let others decide how you have to look! Men or women, the principle shouldn't be different just because of the gender!

My husband keeps his beard at about a centimeter. Short enough that it doesn't interfere with eating or speaking, and he doesn't need to irritate his face with a razor.

Well I haven't measured the hair on my face but that's probably about how long I keep mine and keep is a very loosely used word here. :XD: It irritates me when I shave and it irritates me when it gets too long so I'm all for the happy medium. :XD:

I agree, why is it that women must be almost completely hairless to be socially acceptable, yet most men can get away with looking like King Kong and still be found attractive? I prefer waxing anyway :P
