“Why don’t you guys shave”
Thank you for asking. I’d be happy to tell you. Back in 1915 Gillette started a marketing “assault” on a woman’s underarm hair to sell more razors. It started out in Harper’s then soon moved to McCalls, too. Since then, women have been tricked into thinking that to be sexy or hygienic they must shave off all their hair, except on their heads. Let me tell you something: it’s not fun or pleasant in any way. Shaving causes painful rashes and cuts. It’s expensive and produces needless waste. It is merely a fashion fad that has stuck way too long. I choose not to shave, and I have never felt more comfortable in my own skin. I don’t have to change who I am naturally to be appealing to the people I want to appeal to in my life. And I don’t expect or want them to change themselves. If you choose to shave, that’s great, and I won’t judge you for it, Reader. I only ask the same courtesy of you. It’s not gross. It’s hair. It’s womanly. [and women are sexy =)]
Free yourselves of oppression!
