this is super important, thank you for making this video. I've become quite the feminist in the sense that I've become aware of a lot of problems like these and have managed to unlearn the shame forced upon me and filled the space with courage to go against it and take the decisions. Nowadays I still shave because I love the smoothness and because I get less sweaty under the pits and hairy legs feel uncomfortable on a physical and not on a mental level. I just dont like the feeling. But I leave a bush by my vagina (although I trim it a lot so it doesn't annoy me) and I leave my leg hair unshaven during winter unless I get really annoyed by it. I'm currently looking into washing/using those machines that rip your hair out cus then my legs will be even smoother and I'll just be more comfortable. I might go back to using that cream, too, that like destroys the hair roots. But I'm doing all of that for me. So, it's aright if you shave or wax and I'm glad Chantal mentioned that. Just KNOW that there's no shame in not doing it and make sure it's out of a healthy reason. You can still shave for your boyfriend if you want or to look prettier in a conventional way. Just, dont let anyone pressure you into doing it.

I stopped shaving a few years ago. I had come to a realization that 1) shaving only makes me smooth for maaaaybe half of a day (hair grows like a weed), and 2) it was a waste of money and time I could be spending on something I actually want/need. I tend to make decisions based on functionality and convenience, and hair removal was nothing but a pointless aesthetic. So I dropped the razor and haven't looked back. I'm much more comfortable with my body now than I ever was when it was hairless.

It's so Strange that People are openly accepting and praising girls if they don't want to shave body hairs . . . . . . . . . . But, when a Male is talking about removing body hairs, the cmnts in the replies are totally irrelevant and illogical . . . . . I'm a guy, I shave Facial hairs, not started shaving body hairs yet . . . . . . . But, even I'm thinking of getting rid of armpit hairs one day . . . . . And yeah, I always believe and want to say, it's " *YOUR LIFE . YOUR CHOICE* " phenomena. So,, even if you're are a guy, and don't like body hairs . . . . . Remove them if you want to. It's your life, your body . . . . . Who the fuck are others to decide, and judge for you . . . 😑 😏 😎 ⛄

I like guys without armpit hair and with hair. Nothing wrong with that. some folks think it's not manly. But society seem to put to much rules for women. And, I prefer to shaved my armpit hair and legs but not often. Or every sec. And growing up I waited to shaved. I think I was 13 years old. I didn't care that my legs had hair. And I was 20 when i started using make-up. Just do what you like to do.

I shave for myself, I feel more confident clean and feminine when I do it, but I can go trough months and months without shaving, and honestly, if I don't give a fuck, why do other people do? And I don't care if they mind me having hair on my legs, because I don't. I remember before I started shaving, people on my class (mostly guys) would make fun of me, because the fact I had hair on my legs, now that I shave, I just think " I don't care, if you care for the fact that I shave or not, if I shave I do it for myself and I won't change just because you want me to, or you don't like they way I am"

I personally don't like having body hair, but I am happy that these days more and more women and men are starting to develop the "if I want to shave or not is my personal choice and nobody can shame me for it" attitude. In the end it's just hair.
Everyone should shave if they want to. Shaving, waxing, using hair, laser hair removal, etc is a personal choice. Also it’s normal for girls to have more hair then men, girls mature faster than boys. Remove your hair if you want to no because you think you should. It’s the same if you decide to cut the hair on your head head or keep it long.

I don't shave my legs because I like having leg hair, and "feeling your blankets on smooth legs" wouldn't really be a thing anyways because my room is cold and I usually wear my jeans to sleep anyways, and I down shave my pits because whenever I do they get really itchy, which already sucks, but when the hair starts growing back it gets even worse because it hurts to scratch my prickly hair I also just don't want to shave lol

Only since 19th century? BULLSH*T. In almost every culture, there are hair grooming products. The Etruscans, the Romans, the Germanic tribes, the ancient Mesopotamian civilizations, Vikings etc shaved, plucked eyebrows.and armpits and waxed legs!! There is literal and archaeological evidence (ask me.if you're interested).

I started shaving for the same reason. I stopped because I always missed a spot, lazy, and finally I rather use the money for something else. I understand my fellow females who have to shave for work, have to wear heels that mutilate their feet, and still deal with a period.

A lot of the follicles below my knees died from high socks. So usually, it's just calves and ankle. But frankly, there IS (for me) a point where it just stops growing. The no care mindset is a stress-free and easy one. :)

I'm glad you did this. My story is more or less the same as yours and I've been told it's 'political'. Honestly though, I just find shaving silly. Now for the passed 20 years, I've barely shaved ( and I refuse to wear nylons because they're awful) and few people notice. I refused to be shamed for it; it's 2019.

You are free to do what you like as long as you dont expect everyone to like what you do. A hairy woman shows a lack of femininity to me. If that is what you choose to do, just understand that myself and many others look at that negatively

Some people think body hair is gross, some think it's unladylike, and some just don't give a damn. No matter the reason you do, or don't shave, you are still a beautiful person, and you deserve someone who is going to be happy with you, and appreciate you for your differences. I don't shave my legs because one, I *never* where *anything* that exposes my legs, I just feel naked when I do, so what's the point really? It's not like anyone is going to see them. Reason two, is because it also takes me over am hour to shave (for those rare occasions when I do). I'm not a woman who falls pray to fake beauty standards and such, (not to say that *all* women are dolls, I know some women just have different choices of style then me, and that's okay, but there still are some who do fall pray to things like that) I don't wear make up, I don't like manicures, or pedicures (I have my own way of taking care of that, that's less painful, yes I find manicures painful) I don't shave my legs, I don't wear skirts, shorts, or dresses, I don't wear tank tops, or anything considered to be "feminine" because that's just not my style. I like comfortable T-shirts with funny little remarks written on them, I like an oversized jacket that I can escape into whenever I want to take a secret nap, I like jeans and long socks with converse or vans... My style preference is function over fashion, maybe yours isn't, and that's fine. There is no sense in wasting time an energy about arguing over someone's opinions about dressing, when there are so many more important issues and productive things that could be accomplished right now...

I really hate it because people notices it and I'm afraid that they really think it's gross or something because I'm a woman. Even my breast have a little hair. I don't even know what to do. But i never shave or wax it. Because i know for sure it will damage my skin but im doubting. Becaude i rlly think doesn't look great.
