A rather large shaving cut on my leg has made me wonder once again why I do it.
Having hair is natural, from when we used to be massive, hairy Apes. So why did women first decide to start shaving? And why is having hair on our arms and legs repulsive, and yet we style and dye the stuff on our head?
I don’t like having hairy legs. I once had to let it grow in order to have it waxed a few weeks later. It was itchy and horrible and I couldn’t wait to get rid of it. My other half said that he honestly didn’t mind them being hairy, but my guess was that secretly he was also glad the hair would soon be gone.
A few months ago a woman on Richard and Judy was starting a campaign to try and get hairy models, and for women to be proud of their hair. I’m not sure wether I agree with this or not.
Like I said, having hair on our bodies is perfectly natural, and yet for some reason Society has made it seem like soemthing to be ashamed of.
Women – do you mind being hairy?
Men – what do you think of hairy girls, and do you shave your own body hair?
P.S – don’t search for “Hairy Woman” in Google with safe search off, unless you want to be flashed a prime peice of British muff.
