I’m sure you have all been witness to the anti-shave movement spreading throughout the internet. This has been going on some time with Miley Cyrus, and Madonna among many other notable women supporting the feminist movement to stop shaving your pits.
I’m not anti-feminist, I certainly believe that women’s rights are important and that the feminist movements toward equal rights have been well fought for. No one should be treated as an object; that is for sure.
So now that I’ve made myself clear about that… I don’t see why women who stop shaving their armpits is a big deal.
Let me list the reasons why I have no interest in joining this movement:
- Antiperspirant/ deodorant works better when applied directly to the skin—in fact, the point of antiperspirant is to block the glands that sweat releases from…
- It feels more comfortable. I’ve let my armpit hair grow for a week, max. I didn’t enjoy the itchiness caused by the hair finally filling in the gap. I guess this is more personal preference, but it wasn’t comfortable feeling a small pet under my arms.
- We’re not living in the middle-ages, I don’t need that extra hair to keep me warm… so I’m not going to keep it. (That was the purpose, right?)
- I think this will be the most widely debated point; it looks better. Again, personal preference but I don’t want to see it.
- It’s my choice.
It only becomes an issue when it is made to look like an issue.
If someone doesn’t like you the way you wish to be then they’re not worth your time, girlfriend.
