Filipina women shave armpits and down there but they don't shave legs. Shaving legs is like too much for them. If you shave your legs, when they grow again, the hair will be thicker. Why not accept our natural hair? Accepting natural beauty is better than making too much effort to beautify yourself.

I have a question!! In the video you talked about your mom telling you “you can never go back” but then you did. Do you feel like it is worse (thicker, more prickly or uncomfy) because you had shaved in the past? Im trying to decide if I should shave because I love the smooth feeling but also know I might decide later in life to stop. I know this is an old video but thoughts?

So one year for Halloween I dressed up as Cinderella for school and a boy that was in my class but transferred to a different class because of this reason I cannot remember but what I do remember was that on Halloween I overheard him telling his friend why is that boy dressing up as Cinderella and I got really sad about that and I started shaving but now I'm like I don't care anymore just leave me alone like be who you want to be don't care if some boys or girls are making fun of you because you have leg hair and arm hair it does not matter you grow it you could have it, it's a part of your body not theirs and it only "bothers" them because they're staring and they're sharing because you are you no one else

Gillette now markets to feminists, saying, ' Be FREE from the patriarchy! Use our MAN-Made Razors!! '. What a bunch of clowns. Anyone remember when feminists were opposed to shaving? Everything is backwards now, because people are easily-manipulated. Great video.

I’ve shave my legs a lot when it “mattered” back when I was in middle school, now I shave my legs whenever I’m going somewhere fancy or I just feel in the non lazy mood to shave. My boyfriend really doesn’t care if my legs are hairy cause he loves me enough because he loves me for being me. (He is such a sweetheart about this) besides that I normally where t-shirts and jeans like all the time and wear shorts (and shirts) at home do just my family and my boyfriends really knows about the leg hair situation.

I am a swimmer, so I spend a lot of my days in nothing but a pair of brief swimmers. I let ALL my body hair grow out because i have learned that my body hair is beautiful. People have been like, "but don't you feel embarrassed around boys... or like people in general?" and I answer is no. I will never be ashamed of body hair ever.

Once my friend was basically laughing at me because I have what she calls "boy legs", and one time I shaved cause I WANTED TO and she was TELLING ALL THE BOYS I did it, and one of them was like "Yeah, so?", She said "She never does it" I must clarify I did it way too often so I don't know why she said that, anyways his response was "why do you even care if she does it or not" you guys have no idea how glad I was to hear that, the sad thing is that I'm just 14 years old

In my opinion shaving arms and legs isn't necessary, but you should regularly shave(or trim) your private area and underarm for hygiene
Jess Melgar
Jess Melgar Hace 11 días
It’s actually less hygienic to do that, and you have a higher risk of contracting STIs. So shaving private areas is still realistically a you do you situation.

No, this had to do with fashion and feeding off of womens insecurities, insecurities they created. Shorter dressed, open sleeves etc. Were said to have required shaving and removing the hair. Just another ploy. Don’t shave especially if you don’t want to or it is tedious for you , most people either won’t care or will get used to it.

I only shave my legs for special occasions or vacations where I was going to show my legs alot but other than that I dont care. Plus my hair dont grow that long so no one notice unless they really staring at them and idc what others think about it either. I shave everywhere else though such as my underarms because of appearance and I dont like the feeling of it and that my preference not anyone else's.

bumblekittyTV Hace 20 días
My leg hair grows back really slowly so I can go like 2 and a half weeks before the hair on my legs are really that visible and like a month before it’s fully grown back but the thing is once it’s fully grown back it’s REALLY hairy like when I was in middle school I always wondered if other girls legs were as hairy as mine like guys never shaved their legs but there was like no hair on them but girls shaved there legs so I didn’t get why girls legs were hairier but anyway now I know it’s because girls are growing during middle school and guys grow during high school well usually

When you already are in an ltr and work in an environment where you have to cover your legs for safety 👌
I didn't shave my legs until I was in 6th grade and I did it because girls kept saying I should shave. Yeah the first time I shaved was nice and soft and it stayed shaved for a while, but now I have to keep up with it and it grows back after a day and it's more of a chore. I miss having smooth legs but it sucks that if I don't do it people are gonna make fun of me.

Like why would someone spend that much money just on shaving products when you can just deal with having a little hair on your legs like for me it doesn’t bother me as much because you can hardly see it because it’s the same color as my skin but I don’t know it just seems kind of useless that someone spending that much money just to shave the hair off your legs like it wouldn’t be there if it wasn’t supposed to be there.
