Hi everyone. Question
Why are people so grossed out by body hair. It's something natural. All women/ladies/girls grow body hair. Some just grow more than others. I personally really hate the so called social construct of beauty put up by media and society. Many women get insecure because of it... I often ask. Why is it considered to be gross. What's gross if you wash it. Why isn't it gross on men ? Why is it considered to be unfeminine ? It's something natural. All women grow it. Some even have more than man who grow very little. I'm trying to spread some positivity and awareness. No shave no shame

Are there people here who let it grow ?

:dontknow:

Just a preference to some people I guess, I'm not really a fan of body hair on men or women. That being said I'm not necessarily 'grossed' out by it.

Why isn't it gross on men ?
It is. I find it weird that most British men don't shave their underarms or trim their public hair as it seems quite unhygienic. It's normal for both men and women to do this where I come from...

beauty trends have existed for as long as we've had the ability to perceive/judge beauty.

The idea that they are ever going to go away, is just naive. All we can do is change them, not get rid of them. They have already changed so much within my own lifetime, I mean when I was a teenager all I saw was my female friends wanting to be skinny as hell and my more curvy friends being insecure.. now its flipped and my younger skinny relatives are insecure and their more curvy female friends are loving the current style trends. Things flip and flop. I would bet every penny I have that at some point within my life-time, female body hair will become back in trend in a huge way.. at least in some form or another.

Besides, its largely not straight men who are setting the standards. Women and gay men rule the roost when it comes to style and trends these days... most straight men couldn't care less as long as they are getting some action..

Body hair became shameful in women around 80 years ago because in America shaving cream companies wanted to sell more as they got the Whole male market On board so they used extensive propaganda to tell women shaving is more feminine which became a life long trend and engrained into society and these rich white men were mega successful. So Over time it’s enforced over many generations and Americans are heavily influential In social media which the message is basically reiterated and through migration

Female here - I don't do anything to it, because I don't see the point.

Its become a societal expectation that women get rid of their body hair. And of course then there are those who just have a preference.
Shave it, leave it, do whatever you want.

i think it’s just part of this obsession to be able to identify gender based on appearances, so women should like pink, have long hair, wear skirts, wear makeup, have no body hair etc.; while men don’t do none of that or if they do it’s their personal choice for professional reasons. if they just like the looks of it for themselves they must be metrosexual or queer.

honestly i’m not going to lie tho. i don’t like underarm hair on anyone and i don’t know why. i think underarms in general are gross i suppose and the hair just makes it worse. would shave it regardless of my gender till i’m 101 years old.

I don’t do much to my body hair. As you get older, the hair becomes thinner and less apparent anyways. I think it’s better to look more natural with body hair
