I just wanted to say that your blog is incredibly inspiring! I can’t answer your question as to why being “hairless” is considered to be the norm. I wish that wasn’t the case. I think body hair is awesome. A big problem is that most women shave or remove body hair because they feel that have to and not because they want to. There are even ad campaigns out there trying to convince you that being hairless is what will get you a date, and how much “sexier and smoother” you will be. Frankly, I’m sick of it. I really want things to change. Women need to embrace themselves for the beautiful people that they are. I’d also like the point out, that if a man wants to shave there legs, they should go ahead and do it. The society has so many weird trends. Having or not having body hair should not be relevant to the person. One time I was in a room, and I couldn’t believe my ears because a bunch of people were saying shit about this girl who doesn’t shave her legs and I just said “My legs are hairier than her’s will ever be!” Then everyone shut up. I just hope people can realize that it’s not nearly as a big deal as people make it out to be. Body hair is wonderful, embrace it.
