Comments Of The Week: 10 Of Your Comments About Your Hairy Hairy Bodies

Body hair is probably one of the most divisive topics that we touch here on Gurl and in life in general. Seriously, talk with your friends–man and female–about female body hair and be prepared for an onslaught of varying opinions.

The decision to remove or embrace one’s body hair is–of course–a personal decision. But how personal can it be when we live in a society that obviously appreciates hairlessness above all else. Even the most “liberated” among us can’t help but succumb to the societal pressure of shaving our legs in the summer or wax our upper lip year round.

But our actions don’t always coincide with our beliefs. Check out these 10 comments from you–our readers–and see for yourself.

Alana: Your hair isn't going to grow back thicker and darker. That's a myth that, for some reason, still gets a lot of mileage. If you like your hairy legs you don't have to shave! Yes, people will be ignorant and judgmental about them because women are always expected to be completely hairless. But if you can handle that and know that the people who really matter in your life won't mind your hairy legs, then don't feel pressured to do it! From I Have Hairy Legs And I Like It That Way
