I'm shaving my head and growing my body hair free and wild*. Most of the guys on this thread won't like it. But who cares? It's my body, and I'll do what I like with it. If people don't like it, that's their problem not mine.

*a little part of me is doing it to give a huge two fingers up at the people who think they can dictate what women should or shouldn't do with their bodies. just because I can.

Now, let's bring on the negs. I know they're coming. Because god forbid a woman be proud of something that occurs naturally on her body, right?
oh god,

you're one of those women
sigh

I remove my body hair, because I want too. You leave your body hair, fair enough. It's hardly something to be proud of either way though

I once shaved my eyebrows :facepalm: Never again.

Anyway I shave everywhere that I get hair really. Every week/2 weeks if I'm feeling lazy

When people hurl abuse at you online and in real life for daring to have body hair, then I'll certainly be proud to flaunt it, just to piss them off. I'm not saying it's not okay for women to shave, if you want to be bald as a babys bum then you rock it girl. Just as I'm sure you're proud of your appearance, I am proud of mine. No need to undermine it just because it makes me happy to be that way.

No you've misunderstood. I'm not undermining your decision, what I'm saying is this: what somebody does with their body hair isn't something that you/they should be proud of as such, it's not like winning an award or something. I think the word proud is bizarre word to use in this context.

I dunno, the word works for me. Perhaps I'll be confident in myself regardless of others opinions? Is that better?

I'm proud to be myself, whether that's bald or hairy or wearing a sombrero. I won't let other people's opinions on my appearance define me.

Personally, shave legs and armpits, wax downstairs. Arms are fine unless its like, thick dark hair. IMO

Good for you! We need to have more women not being pressured to wax/shave what their bf wants.
Having said that I do shave/wax but because I choose to

I'm all for you doing what you want because you want to and it's your own aesthetic and personal preference, but you don't seem to be doing it for those reasons and just come across as extremely childish tbh.

That's your opinion. I want to do it and it's my personal preference too, I just didn't mention it. perhaps if I was less outspoken about it you'd be happier?

What a random assumption to make, especially given that I never in any way suggested that I was unhappy with the fact that you were outspoken.

Your agenda has become obvious. Nothing more will likely come from continued communication, so I'll leave you be.

Women should shave wherever they feel like. Where was that option on the poll?

Like, seriously. I choose to shave but if a guy couldn't cope with a bit of underarm hair then I'm pretty sure we wouldn't have a future anyway...

I think you're awesome. I get rid of my body hair because I don't like the feel of it catching against my clothes but you should definitely be proud to stand up against the patriachy. I almost feel unfeminist with smooth underarms and legs...

I think anywhere that hair grows should be shaved, waxed, epilated, plucked, veeted or whatever, except the hair on your head, and a small amount of eyebrow.

What never ceases to amaze me is how many girls remove hair on their legs, underarms and vejayjay but tolerate a forest on their forearms. Why?????
