    Not sure if this was an oversight:
    - said hair removal wasn't a thing til 19th century then try to pin it on Darwin
    - later said women during renaissance used arsenic and ..... for hair removal.
    I just hope the former wasn't an attempt to simplify a complex, multi factored issue in order to subtlety push the narrative that this just came about because of the theory of one man. And it did this while failing to note that Darwin's evolutionary theories are so widely accepted and revolutionized our understanding of biology and history. There's clearly a lot more history and complexity to the issue of female hair removal. Ladylike pls do better.

    Main reason women stop shaving: they prefer being single forever. Or they're taking the man role in a lesbian fling.

    I stopped shaving my legs YEARS ago when I realized that having leg hair did not irritate me - and it's nearly invisible, so that doesn't really count for much. And this winter, my armpit hair FINALLY got passed the itchy stage, so that nonsense can stop, too. I LOVE "playing" with beauty routines and appearances, so long as it's optional. Optional make up. Optional fashion. Optional shaving. It's only when it's "required" in society (via stigma) that it's a problem, really.

  • noob tube

    Hmm I wonder why girls should shave their leggs.............maybe it makes you not look like a man with gorilla armpits plus she probably spends a ton of money on makeup perfume and other "needs" this girl has

  • Frenchy PooWho
    Frenchy PooWho Day ago

    I have really fine hair and if I don't shave I find that I get a lot of ingrown hair and that's just a not picnic I want to attend. And I definitely don't go without shaving under my arms because the deodorant does not stick anymore which in the summer is like, "nope, not gonna do it." I've even shaved my arms, yes my forearms. I just really like the smoothness. I don't have dark hair (a darker shade of strawberry blonde) but I just like the smoothness....and not having ingrown hairs.. or deodorant clumpies.

    In the nicest way possible, this video is pointless. If you want to shave your legs, cool. If you don't want to shave your legs, cool. It doesn't make much difference to any of us.
    I shave my legs and armpits, I feel more comfortable that way.
    If you don't have the confidence to show your leg hair, I hope this video gives you the confidence you need.
    Other than that, again, this video is pointless.

    who spends a bunch of money to shave their legs tho. you can either use a razor and some conditioner, or just make your own wax or by some from the cvs. it isn't that deep, and it especially isnt that deep for someone that first off, doesnt even have any dark arm hair, or dark body hair in general. i really hate having hair on my body, so i jist get rid of it when i want to. or im too cold to shave.

    There's so many "it's not that deep" comments. Sure. It's not. Until you have to go outside. Until you have to go to work hairy. Until you show up on a date hairy. Then suddenly everyone has a problem with something that REALLY. SHOULDN'T. BE. DEEP. So practice what you preach.

    I was pressured by an adult to shave... It was awkward... I'll usually only shave half way, and often only when I swim. I find the feeling of hair in the water or blowing in the wind really weird like being tickled, and I don't like it. Every other time of the year I don't care, except that ingrown hairs can be a pain.

    Guys don’t like hairy women
    Want a guy = Shave

    If men are not a problem you’re good. If they are then you’re not good.
    We all adapt to what the others in society we’re trying to make an impression on find appealing.

    Also I shave my armpits cos it’s uncomfortable and it just feels unhygienic to me ( I don’t think it is but oh well lol it’s just personal preference )
    I really don’t care what other girls do, not shaving or shaving doesn’t make you any less of a woman :/
