So I'm scrolling through FaceBook last night and I see this picture:
Of course I was very curious to see what it was all about so I clicked on the link. It appears several woman have decided to stop putting themselves through the daunting task of removing their body hair. My first thought was wow, I can see how liberating that really would be. No more shaving or waxing, double checking to make sure no spot was missed. No more stressing when it starts growing back. No more carrying razors on vacation even though I always secretly hope I can make it through the entire trip without having to use it.
Then on the other hand is America really ready for this fad? Other cultures accept and embrace woman not shaving they even think it is sexy. But a lot of American men think that a woman should be smooth. I mean we even have men shaving their arms and legs now. So will this trend be a socially accepted?
This is a perfect example of how society reacts to women not shaving. Was it really necessary to point out her hairy legs? From the first picture it was very unnoticeable.
I've said it before I believe in live and let live so if you have decided to ditch your razors, shaving cream, and wax good for you! After a lot of thought, I could only join this revolution during the winter. I go as long as I can during the winter without shaving but come summer, the razors come out.
I'm not sure why but I do hate to shave. It' s not like it takes a long time but it's just a pain so I could see the joy in stopping. But in my opinion a smooth hairless leg in shorts or a shirt makes me feel very sexy. I don't know if I would feel the same way if I stopped shaving. Truthfully, think a man with a hairless back and chest is extremely sexy.
So this girl will not be banishing her razor and shaving cream anytime soon. I may change my mind later on, in fact I'm pretty certain come October I will slowing start joining the no shave revolution one week at a time.
How about you? Have you tossed your razors and started enjoying a liberating no shave lifestyle?What are your thoughts on woman who have tossed their razors and stopped shaving? No rude comments please.
