Why do people hate body hair on women?

Announcements Posted on

    Never really understood it.

    I used to go along with the whole thing in my younger years (when I fretted endlessly about other people's opinions and was hideously insecure), but have now abandoned the ritual of shaving because I don't really see the point.

    Anyone got an answer?

    Because that's the way it works. Men have to have body hair, women can't, capiche? Only light arm hair is fine, I don't mind it personally. Legs, armpits etc. have to be shaved though.

    Maybe because having (excessive) body hair is associated with masculinity? It's like asking why a man with no body hair is unattractive.

    im a woman and i just cant stand body hair! if i let myself *grow* for even a few days i start to feel icky and itchy all over, it's just far more comfortable when youre silky smoothe

    Usually because it looks 'manly'.

    You get loads of women with body hair in the south of France though.
