    I keep myself groomed; no reason she can't.

    Unless they've got legs as hairy as a mans, I don't see a massive need for shaved legs, though it is preferable. Armpit hair is completely insignificant as far as I'm concerned.

    Is there any reason in particular? Some people just say it to avoid the word "paedo" being thrown at them. Not that I'm accusing you of that btw.
    Do you like the pubes made into shapes and stuff? This to all guys btw.
    I personally find that sickening.
    I prefer it all bare - even on guys. Man porn has distorted my perception of reality sooo badly. :rolleyes:
    It's not really the paedo thing for me, I just think it looks awful with nothing there. The hair could look like anything, just as long as it was there. Therefore, as a compromise, Trimming is alright with me.

    Hair up top doesn't matter, it's the hairs around the labia that guys complain about. It;s not too hard to get them out of the way. Trimming makes that 'problem' easier. Same vice versa. Let's be honest though, it's not that bigger deal is it?

    I knew someone would provide that as a counter argument! :rolleyes:

    But what if you take good care after shaving/waxing - like moisturising, gentle exfoliation, using neutral pH soaps down there.
    Win-win situation, no?
    No, definitly not win-win.

    The constant itching/allergic reactions/ingrown hairs (which happen however much care I take) mean it's just not worth it. I trim regularly, but they're always there.

    Is there no one out there who thinks it should be the woman's choice and that she shouldn't have to remove something so normal and natural as body hair just to be accepted by society?

    I've seen some people on this thread comment about how it's down to testosterone that girls have body hair, but this is irrelevant as no matter how much we try to make ourselves look like a lizard, the testosterone is still there and it's totally normal.

    Furthermore, a man keeping himself 'groomed' is a little different to applying hot wax to the skin every few weeks then stripping it away, and with it your hair and skin. Even shaving causes discomfort for many women as they are prone to ingrown hairs. Why should women suffer like this just to be accepted?

    My partner adores and loves me and finds me gorgeous and sexy, despite the fact that I rarely shave. He isn't shallow enough not to be able to appreciate my natural beauty. I just wish all women had this choice.

    EDIT: I just proof-read it

    Well we don't have penises. We have body hair. Get over it or marry a girl with alopecia totallis. Bear in mind she'll also have no head hair.

    No thanks, I'll just marry a girl that knows how to use a razor/waxing strips. I'd prefer not to feel like I'm with a guy, thanks.

    But women naturally have body hair, why should it feel like being with a guy? We don't even have much body hair compared to some men who, quite frankly, look like gorillas. Your perception of what is male and what is female is all wrong. I'll give you a few hints: Women have vaginas, milk glands and body hair. If you're confused, use this checklist. If you've ticked 2 things, there's a chance you're gonna get lucky.

    Also, little side note, I know how to use a razor. And waxing strips. And an epilator. And hair removal cream. Thing is, they all give me allergic reactions/in-grown hairs. My partner actually cares about my comfort so doesn't want me doing these painful and, at best, uncomfortable things to myself. Ever thought about trying to be a real man too?

    Because female bodyhair is disgusting and makes me want to vomit. I've never had the displeasure of being with or seeing a girl who had hairy armpits or legs. If I did, I'd leave or else I'd gag. That's just the way I am and no amount of feminist guilt is going to change that.

    So, do you hate women or are you just gay? either way, I am concerned for any women who may come across your path. God forbid if it's a couple of days before their next wax, imagine having something as vile and misogynist as you vomiting on them.

    Also, how do you even know what it would be like to see a girl with body hair if you've never seen one? Body hair isn't manly. It's natural. I'll make a suggestion: a blow-up doll is just about as fake as it gets, and they have no hair at all.

    A misogynist? Are you stupid or something?

    I've unfortunately been subjected to images of it on the net and it was not in the least bit pleasant.

    Also, here's a photo of julia roberts from the notting hill premiere when she controversially bared her hairy pits. Feel free to vomit.
