For as many women are out there looking down on those who shave, there are just as many out there looking down on those who don’t, if not more. Probably more. I’m pretty sure women with hairy pits are in the minority, but I may be wrong.
I feel we made a collective effort in our discussion to make a point about it being a personal choice; one not being objectively better than the other. Body policing of any kind is not accepted here.
Personally, I enjoy shaving sometimes and enjoy not shaving other times. Like you, I do sometimes feel sexier when I shave my legs and I love the smooth feeling…But connecting that with “feeling clean”? I’d rather avoid that way of thinking.
I understand that is your feeling and I certainly understand the impulse because I’ve experienced it myself, but I think it’s an important distinction to make.
So I break it down like this: I am hairy as fuck right now and I AM clean. I showered this morning, my wispy yet bountiful body hairs are happy, and I feel clean because I am.
I’m sure we understand one another and I’m not saying that you’re implying anything about my uncleanliness, just making a point. :3
No hate either way, indeed!
