I don't. It's never really occurred to me to do it, because it is such a boring, massive amount of effort to be dealing with legs/armpits/bikini line anyway without having to bother with arms as well!
This thread made me think of something else that I've often debated with friends over:
Do you shave the top of your legs i.e. above the knees?
I always have done and never understood why people don't, but I have heard a lot of girls say they don't bother, and they're glad that they never got in to it.
But I do have very fine blonde hair. I can't even epilate my legs, it just breaks the hair off rather than pulling them out at the roots so I just shave instead. But not above the knee, there really isn't much there at all...
Bleach My arm hairs are quite dark and I just think I look better when they're blonder. I'd rather do something about it than pretending that the hair isn't there... It's not about doing it "for guys" I just feel better that way. There shouldn't be any shame in looking how you want to, like hair removal on your arms is some sort of bad thing that evil people do O.o
I have never understood why anyone would shave their arm hair I knew a girl at school who did with hers and it always looked really weird when it grew back and will result in it growing back thicker and even becoming ingrown. If it really is horrifically dark, then using hair removal creams or bleaching are the best options, but I really just don't think it's necessary Your arms are fine!
Yeah, I've done mine for years, not as obsessively as my underarms and legs, just from time to time. Never gotten any darker though and doesn't grow back stubbly. I feel more feminine with nice smooth arms, just one of those personal choice kind of things

I had no idea people even shaved their arms..or that guys bothered about it. Ohdear.
I have blonde hair on my arms, so it's not too visable anyway..but it's quite long hair but only noticable when I'm cold..or showing my arms, and I live in hoodies.
I don't care whether my arm hair is unattractive to guys tbh.. it's natural to have hairy arms sure?
Perhaps I could understand if you had dark arm hair but seriously - Don't us girls shave enough already? Soon it's gonna be socially unacceptable for us to have eyebrows or head-hair -.-
FINALLY SOMEONE SAID IT, hair is natural yet we need to look like porn stars or new born babies
