I apologise for the face, but I do have something to say. So, today, we did a run with school and I got so hot that I had to take two of my layers off and reveal my luscious thicket of underarm hair… To which somebody responded by talking about how “embarrassing” it was as I walked past.
Firstly: Do I look embarrassed? I just posted a picture of myself and said hair on the internet for anyone to see! If you’re embarrassed by underarm hair, just shave yours. My hair has fuck all to do with your life.
Secondly: why should women feel pressured to shave? Why? It doesn’t change your personality, fitness, etc… So why is hair, or lack of it, a redeeming factor in being considered attractive for a woman? And no, it’s not “unnatural” - humans evolved hair over thousands of years to serve the purpose of warmth and pheromone distribution. Besides, if your preference is “no hair” you have no right to impose this on other people (whether they be male or female). My preference is “not a judgemental idiot” but clearly you aren’t respecting that (it’s kind of sad that the only reason I was exposing said hair was due to necessity - I’d like to wear dresses and tank tops without shaving but I’m too susceptible to judging looks… But I want to change that).
Finally, believe it or not, I am still the same person I am with hair than I am without. I am still mildly attractive, I still have amazing breasts, I still have the best friends I could ask for, I still have an amazing partner who finds me attractive regardless of amount of hair and I am still hygienic, friendly, respectful, intelligent (or at least I try to be!) and the level hair on my legs, between them, on my stomach, on my feet, on my face, under my arms, on my arms and anywhere else should never be a factor in how much you respect me.
