if “girls aren’t supposed to have body hair” then why do girls have fucking body hair?
my body hair is personally essential to my physical comfort. i feel literally awful if i shave - my legs, my pits, pubes, what have you. i lose the ability to thermoregulate comfortably. i chafe. it sucks. it’s not because i’m lazy or dirty. it’s not just some stunt or a political statement, though i am totally fine with making it a political statement since it’s still so frowned upon by society - i feel naked without the hair i grow naturally on my body. and am often made to feel like i’m not a woman because of it. pretty goddamn simple.
this is in no way saying that shaving is even remotely a bad/anti-feminist thing to do - shaving is fine if you WANT to do it but no one should feel forced to - it’s all about what makes people feel comfortable and happy!!!!
