Also, I don't feel like having some armpit hair growth makes my armpits (more) smelly. Everyone is different though.

If there's really no difference in odor, you're lucky in that it appears you have a stable bacterial population.

Without a doubt.

Modern feminists are incredibly unhappy. SJW's are born from unhappiness and the need to fill the void by complaining about and restricting others.

I think being sedentary has a lot to do with it.

That's a crazy post. Not all feminists are the same. Not everyone that fights for a cause or does something for the social benefit of others is a social justice warrior. Just like not all social justice warriors are liberals. Many that fit that label are conservative and christian.

I know lot's of self Indentifying feminists who are very happy. They aren't the ones going around complaining about every little thing though. More than a few of them are happily married as well.

This thread is showing me one thing. There is a lot of outrage over hairy armpits. LOL Why would anyone care?

I think there's way too much deleterious discontent in the current feminist movement because it is so absolutely tied into partisan politics. In fact, I have several female friends that only took up the cause of feminism in reaction to Trump's election.

Before then, Obama was their exotic boyfriend, they thought he loved them back, and they felt great about themselves.

I've got one pit that's mostly au naturale right now and not by choice. With frozen shoulder, you can't life your arm up high, so you can't stretch the skin under your arm. Last time I tried to get the razor in there, I cut myself. So I've been living with what trimming I can manage.

I hate it and can't wait until I can get my arm up again.

Men expecting women to shave is ironic.

For $500 you can get it lasered, then it's never a problem again.

And yet, what an equitable way to treat this debate. One shaved, one hairy.

It sounds delightful to me.

I have noticed that it is tougher to get anit-perspirant and/or deodorant on to the hairy one. It's also tougher to get it off.

But then you have the bum arm though to work with, eh?

I really can't comment on what a hairier armpit than mine is like to 'work' with. I am just not very hairy.

I realized just the other day that I hadn't thought of shaving my armpits for months! I've been too obsessed with work to think about it. Turns out I just don't grow enough of it to notice. I think there was like five blond thin hairs. Since my husband didn't take notice, and I just don't sweat much naturally, I decided to leave it be for the time being. Shaving causes me ingrown hairs usually.

But I would like to get all the rest lasered. Contrary to common american beliefs, the french women do NOT wear body hair. They get it all waxed, from head to toe. I have had some snotty women comment that I don't wax my lower arms and cheeks.

I prefer my husband to leave body hair natural, but he doesn't like to. He shaves it all off everywhere. We disagree on this and every once in a while he'll let some of his chest hair grow just to please me.

In any case, it is not body hair, or lack of it, that is going to determine whether or not we love each other!!

Don't believe it.

Until that gets reflected in porn. Then I will.

For decades now. A hairless society is preferred.

Applies to both to men and women.

I just read 8 pages about a small percentage of women not shaving.........

Seriously, I could have showered and shaved my armpits in that time



Life is so much has simpler when you take out a "you do you boo..I'll do me" approach.

The hairless thing...especially in porn...bugs me. Maybe I just don't understand though.

Juveniles are hairless.

I came of age in the 1980s though...big hair everywhere was cool.

This trend has come and gone years ago, I thought. (In the U.S. , in some countries like France, it's the standard.) I didn't go for it. I wouldn't feel clean.

eta: Just read Bluesma's post, and I guess she would know about France. I based my comment on having two French women asked me if I shaved under my arms, and when I answered in the affirmative, they rolled their eyes and assured me no French women shave under their arms. The attitude was one of superiority.

I will spare you all about their comments on how they manage their period fluids.

Exactly, why does anyone care? I just don't know.

I'm an older woman, retired. I'm sick of vulgar, violent, grotesque young women. These days they act like pigs.


I don't see the connection to underarm hair. Supposedly the whole women shaving business started with vulgar prostitutes keeping the lice off.


It goes back further than that. The Egyptians shaved for various reasons. I'm sure it goes back even further than them.

They could have been exceptions - in any nation, there are some people who feel rebellious about their countries customs and make a big deal about being "better" than everyone else because they are not "sheep".

Though no, women do not shave. They go to a estheticien weekly for hot wax. Using razors is seen as barberic because it doesn't pull the whole hair out and leaves you prickly after two days. It isn't even expensive (about 20 dollars for full leg, bikini, arms ).
I live in a tiny rural village, and our town has one grocery store.... and FOUR Institutes de beauté (estheticiens).

I really hate the hairless man trend though.

Seaworthy don't get me wrong, one of the reasons this triggered me, was because , I heard some one on this natural movement kick , saying she won't use feminine sanitary products for their monthly cycles.:just let it flow naturally,.barf:
I am unable to post a link or cut and paste at the moment, but yeah it's a thing...look up free the period.
