Female Body Hair

12 posts in this topic

 

What do you think?

 

Men, could you accept your woman in her natural state?

 

Women, could you go without removing body hair?  Why do you remove it? 

 

 

 

 

My turn: I remove body hair but it is a pain for me.  My skin does not react well to it.  I simply remove for societal expectations and nothing more.  I feel a lack of freedom to be myself, the way God made me.

Firstly I strongly disagree with the view of one presenter that females don't have free choice not to shave; that they are being "forced to conform" because they would be "lambasted". Seriously?! Where do we end up if being criticised removes a person's free choice...far out! No one would have any free choice! Now where schools require girls (and boys) to shave I take issue.

 

I don't have great insight into the general strength of female armpit hair growth but I would describe most of the instances in the clip as armpit fluff...And I don't mean that in any derogatory way, but I would struggle to see how that kind of growth would be a huge issue for anyone. Now if it was the kind of growth that sprawled forth even when the arms were closed I could understand people being reserved about it. Personally, if it was that strong I don't think I would have an issue with it except perhaps in formal dressy situations e.g. would you be unshaved and in a sleeveless dress for your wedding? (Then again, according to christian modesty standards we probably shouldn't be showing our armpits to anyone anyway...) Now if this was some sort of alternative hippie-ish gathering, the more the merrier!

 

When it comes to legs..."Hey honey, save the leg shaving. Use the time to make some dessert!" lol Seriously though, I would be very understanding since I got tired of shaving my face, let alone two whole legs. Or half legs - that could be an issue. If my wife wants to wear short dresses and only shave the bottom half of her legs I'd find that a bit weird when it came to snuggle-time; commit to either I say! But here again I find it hard to picture a hairy legged woman in a formal short dancing dress. Intellectually I generally see female body hair as natural and fine but when it comes to exposure in certain public settings I may be, what did they call it, "socialised" :P.That might very well change if I meet a hairy love of my life  :D

 

In regard to facial hair, specifically mustaches or beards, I would have the most reservations particularly when unkempt. "Abnormal" female facial hair can be a symptom of polycystic ovary syndrome - would you classify such growth as "natural"? Bushy eyebrows are beautiful! I'm generally opposed to overtly stylized eyebrows, somehow they give me a narcissistic vibe. 

 

As regarding "the nether region" since this is not VDA, I digress.

Totally agree with a lot of what was said…Although, I’m quite biased on this issue. I’m sure this has a lot to do with where you live in the world/cultural influences. I live in a Midwestern city of several million in the US. During high school/college (university) it would have been unthinkable for a woman to not shave. She would absolutely be mocked.

The world would be a happier place if we raised our children to understand men and women come in all different shapes, sizes, colors (or colours sorry Great Britain for butchering your language lol ;), appearances and can have many other unique features…Most importantly, one feature is not better or worse than another…Just your own personal preference, nothing more…nothing less. But this is clearly not reality.

Accept it?....I would EXPECT it!…If I ever get married, I want my wife’s nether region to be sporting a full-on Chewbacca.

Why?

1)      I view it as a sign of sexual maturity…I don’t want her lady parts looking prepubescent.

2)      I am more attracted to an all-natural look, so long as it does not transcend into my view of masculinity. The more of herself she naturally is, the more I will be physically attracted to her….Subsequently, the less makeup, elaborate hair styles and accessories, the better.

What I could not accept is masculine looking facial hair…Like the Muslim woman in the documentary…It definitely would not stop me from marrying/loving a woman but it would have to be lasered or waxed.

However, I do agree with the comment by the bearded one regarding formal occasions and being socialized...but the older i get, the less important that will probably be lol

Totally understand. My arm and leg hair gets really long and straight so it trim it for the same reason. If I did not, I’d look like an albino Sasquatch and people would probably whip out their cell phones and start taking pictures…thinking they just discovered some new cryptozoological creature.

I think it just depends on the person. Body hair is part of you depending on how you were raised you can keep or or wax/shave it off. I grew in a South Asian household and I was taught to remove body hair basically all over. I even wax my arms which some people think is strange but thats something I have been doing for a very long time.  If I don't do it now honestly I feel pretty gross, and going to church I dress semi formal when the legs are exposed lol So I don't like having hair on my legs when I am wearing a skirt or a dress. I am currently attending a college in the midwest which is affiliated with Mennonite Church. By Mennonite I don't mean Amish ! These people are modern and yes we do have some people who used to be Amish but left their community and started the Mennonite Church. Anyways the college I attend is fairly liberal for a Christian college. We have LGBT support groups and things like that. There are a lot of women on campus who do not shave their armpits and legs because they consider it a form of conformity to society. This was at first a little surprising for me cause I was taught to do those things as a way of keeping myself clean. But now I have accepted it simply because its their body and they can whatever they want and I shouldn't be judging them. A lot of these women on my campus do consider themselves to be followers of the Mennonite Church and some are not religious at all. Some of them are a little anti-makeup and dressing up.. as well.  I was raised in a Mennonite Church however I attend a Non denomination church where I have noticed that girls are more girly and most of them don't have body hair on the legs atleast.

I used to think that what I hate most in women's look is vulgarity and abundance of make-up and plastic  surgery ( even men abuse it ! ), but now I know that it is definitely hairy body parts. It is disgusting, really, stop with that, guys.

Another guy's opinion:

There are certainly other things I find unattractive just from an aesthetic viewpoint like way excessive makeup and unnatural hair colors.

 

But body hair, yes I think it's more "feminine" to reduce body hair as I'm an American male therefore I'm slightly engineered to think this way.

Now that being said God did create women with body hair but he also gave both genders the choice to remove it.

Therefore the final conclusion is as long as she's not hairy than I am I wouldn't find some body hair to be unattractive.

I love shaving.  I love the feeling of removing hair.  I love the softness of my skin after shaving.  Shaving EVERYWHERE.  I grew up in ballet, so shaving always happened.
