    armpit hair and shaving

    I think people shouldn't have to shave anything to feel more feminine, that the way the media presents things has a big impact on little girls shaving too soon any ways... and those disposable plastic razors take forever to biodegrate, if ever... it is just bad for the environment and who gives a crap if someone has hair under there arm pits... there are so many attractive women with hairy legs and armpits and we have much more progressive things to spend our time fixated on then whether or not our armpits or legs are constantly shaved. Even women who do shave barely do it every day. And men shouldn't have to shave either, the only thing thats gross is when someone with a beard makes food and there is a beard hair in it , but then if they would just comb it every day it would be fine.

    You could just leave it in and call it peau de toilet.

    Many primitive tribes shave with the sharp edge of certain grasses. I think we should assume this practice is ancient.

    "It was an exciting time in world history. The Declaration of Independence had just been written and, signed. Mean-while, in England, women were strictly forbidden from shaving their legs, let alone, plucking their eyebrows. It was a time in history when what was natural, was attractive...."

    IIRC there are some very old cultures in which women shaved or plucked the hair on their heads.

    Probably a few Western men who have spent a long time in an environment in which there were attractive women who did not shave - legs, pits, anything - or wear makeup, can agree with me that suddenly returning to an American city street or beach populated by shaved and made-up women is a bit of an estrangement.

    They look like stage caricatures of whores. They look like pre-pubescent girls dressed up to appeal to perverts. The phrase "baboon's ass" comes to mind.

    Those kinds of standards of beauty are a cultural thing, for sure.

    What is ironic is that men complaining about women being hairy is a feminine complaint in itself, or just acting like a girl. I guess men can handle being blow up into useless bits of meat on a battlefield but they scream like a baby girl when somebody takes candy away from her if they see a hairy woman? Lol!

    Apparently, Kadark screams like a little girl when he puts his hand on a woman's thigh shaved three days earlier, and gets poked by stubble. The horror!

    The Chinese (who are the most racist people on earth and have not the least doubt about their own superiority) know that they are the finished product of the evolutionary process and that the rest of us are much closer to our ape ancestors. I was told this by a Chinese girl who found my own hairyness sexy -- just like some European chick might fancy being shagged by a gorilla, I guess!

    I prefer hairier men because it seems more masculine. I don't want a man as hairless as me. It seems feminine or prepubescent.

    I noticed many Chinese women don't shave their armpits.

    My ex waxed - everything. She liked it, I liked it, win win

    I don't like stubble either.
    You're thinking of the Japanese.
    Well that's true of both the Chinese and Japanese--and us Americans, for that matter.

    So, after reading the thread I think we can all agree that hairy women are gross and women should wax most parts of their body. In Japan they have a handy little electric hair puller that I think works well for women - oh, and I knew a Japanese girl that did the under arm electrolysis - that worked well for her
